Simple Tip Saturdays are all about giving easy ideas for you to grab and run.

This week, I wanted to introduce you to (or remind you of) Tumblr. A tumblr post is a cross between a status update on Facebook or Twitter and a full-on blog post. Many people use a tumblr or tumble-log to share interesting links or images with others.

In fact, I use Tumblr to bookmark some of my favorite layouts for you.  Do you use a Tumblr? How do you use it or what types of things would you want to use it for?

Scrapbooking the Holidays with a Simple Photo Album

This year I wasn't going to do any holiday scrapbooking. Maybe a layout after the fact, but I had it in my mind to simplify to the extreme. After doing December Daily™ for three years in a row (see 2011, 2012) and having a big year, I felt I needed...

    Very cool. There are so many services out there, its hard to keep up! I am setting up a Persnickety tumblr right now. We need a “blog” style system feeding into our site.. trying to find the best solution! Maybe I should just hire you! 🙂

    It is hard to keep up with all the available options out there! I love this idea of having an exclusive site for scrapping inspiration!! I’ve been using a notebook that I printed some of my favourite layouts out and glued in but I’m really trying to go paperless for less clutter!

    Jennifer, looking for a Tumblr tip. Is there a quick way to add a click through link on Tumblr. I emailed the layout photo to my account but had to go in and copy and paste the photo’s url to the post. I think that a great way to remember where you got the idea and obviously what products they used!!

    Love Tumblr, I was instantly addicted to it and have now set up a page just for inspirational layouts too! I love having them all in one place when I need some ideas 🙂 I am now following yours so I thought i would share mine too…

  5. No Reimer Reason

    Great idea! I have toyed with the idea of setting up a Tumblr account for awhile. I was using Delicious to link to layouts that I love (for when I need inspiration) but it doesn’t show the actual layout and I have to click all the links to see the layouts. These seems much easier! I am setting up an account now.

    Thanks for the tip. 🙂

    Wow! I never thought of using Tumblr in this fashion. I was cutting and pasting the inspiration into my OneNote!!!
    I am a Posterous gal myself, I didn’t like Tumblr cross-posting features but I do have a Tumblr log. I just did a test and…wow! Works great for both platforms!
    Thanks for the wonderful idea!
