They are cool because its interesting to see the face behind the blog. Selfies can say a thousand words and tell a terrific story about you. Sometimes its all about taking a dorky picture but that’s good. Rock on everyone you have amazing faces. Share the light gang and smile!



An upgrade, years in the making…

When we imagined Tumblr more than seven years ago, we dreamed of offering creators a new canvas. Every post would be a raw look through the author’s eyes and mind. We imagined the interface disappearing as these subjects came to life.

For years, this vision was challenged by limits in browser technology and an increasingly daunting set of Tumblr features to support. But today, we take a huge step.

After months of careful crafting, we’ve reduced creation on Tumblr to its essence, while carrying over every single feature and making room for some BIG new ones (like completely customizable drag-and-drop photoset creation, faster uploads, and inline reblogging!). We can’t wait for you to try it.

The upgrades have started rolling out and will be available for everyone by the end of the weekend. Most of the bugs and omissions you’ve reported have already been fixed, but please let us know if you run in to any other issues!

Original Blogging vs. Re-Blogging


I have grown to like the tumblr. platform for a lot of reasons. There is a multimedia approach here that lets you post text, pix, tunes and video.

I Re-Blog just like the next tumblr. user however I do like to post original content. IThere are many Pictures and animated .gifs that are very creative but there seems to be a lot of them being re-posted from one person to another. This is not a criticism but just an observation. Fresh, original content is a must to keep tumblr. going.

It’s my hope that you find me interesting. Yes much of what I post is faith/religion based but that is just one dimension to me. I like the sci-fi, TV, geek and nerd stuff that I see here. I encourage everyone to keep on blogging.
