When Tumblr and Posterous came out over a decade ago, I started using them a fair bit. Sadly Posterous died. Tumblr kept going, but I stopped using it. It’s not that Tumblr is a bad technology platform: it’s just that I didn’t have a need for it. But now I do.
I wanted a platform to do knowledge transfer of IT concepts for my daughter who is also currently in IT. I could email them directly, but they are not personal and others might benefit from them too. I could use WordPress or even just a straight up website. I decided to mix it up a bit and use an old Tumble log I’ve had since 2009 called BLMonIT . It has a great old school theme that looks like an old Mac OS background. It originally was meant for sharing IT knowledge. It has been hardly used. It was just the thing I needed.
I’m going to be posting IT knowledge and opinion there, I hope. If you find it might benefit you, head over to BLMonIT.tumblr.com.
