Call me Russ L

RussR (I’m really getting the hang of this web-lingo)

Posted in Blogstuff, Well, it passes the time by Russ L on 18 July, 2007

I just started a TumblR page.

I’m not sure for how long I’ll be bothered to attend to it (the thought occurs that 99% of everything posted to it will either be stuff that could go on the Delicious Page/linklog or just stuff pinched directly off I Can Has Cheezburger), but we’ll see how it goes.

    I don’t understand what that is.

    …Have I officially become Too Old?

    In about 1923, yes.

    It’s a pseudo-blogging platform which lacks most of the features of a WordPress or a Blogger but compensates by an unbelievably quick and easy interface for posting pictures, videos etc. Most people seem to use them as a way of saving and publically displaying images/vids/scraps of text that they find around the internet and think they might want to hang on to for future reference or amusement.

    As with everything else relating to blogging ever, you’ll get a better idea of it by heading in the general direction of P’Ashton.

    I’m still figuring out how much use (if any) I’ll find for it, myself, but I’m willing to have a play.

    I think Russblr would be a good moniker.

    Not Russlbr. I like Russlr.

    I instinctively like ‘Russblr’ more, but in my mind that sounds close-ish to ‘Russblah’ and as such would be more appropriate for the main blog.

    ‘Russlr’ sounds like ‘Rustler’, which seems more apt given that it’s mostly about stealing pictures.

    I’m a bit bored with it already though, really.

    Eternally redo yer header in Photoshop like a certain, well, me.

    There’s something oddly therapeutic about the process.
