What is a tumblelog?
A tumblelog is a variation of a blog, that favors
short-form, mixed-media posts over the longer
editorial posts frequently associated with blogging.
Common post formats found on tumblelogs include links,
photos, quotes, dialogues, and video. Unlike blogs,
this format is frequently used to share the author’s
creations, discoveries, or experiences without
providing a commentary.
Further Info:
To make it simple, blogs are journals and tumbleblogs
can be considered as scrapbooks. It means that
tumbleblogs is an easier, faster and fun way of
blogging. Tumbleblogs has six types of posts; you have
the traditional blog post, a photo post, a quote post,
link, a conversation post (IM chats) and video post.
Currently, there are two ways to publish a tumbleblog.
One is through the use of Ozimodo, which is a Ruby on
Rails powered tumblelog engine and the other one is
Tumblr, a site that lets you create tumbleblogs for
free.
Tumbleblogs could be the next hottest thing in
blogging. Tumbleblogs, lets you post and share
interesting stuff on your blog requiring less time and
effort.
Tumbleblogs are ideal for people who don’t have much
time to maintain a traditional blog or for those who
can’t come up with lengthy blog posts.
If you want to see how a tumbleblog looks like, you
can visit one of the more popular tumbleblogs online -

hosts together with Kevin Rose. Or you can also check

web.
Bazooka is the only tumblelog written in PHP that you

of coding. It was the first of its kind. Now, most
people could run a tumblelog on their own server with
little fuss.
