Where are you on Tumblr? August 24, 2014 10:15 AM   Subscribe

With cortex's permission, I am opening a MetaTalk thread to find fellow MeFites on Tumblr.

I got into Tumblr to keep up with various fandoms and other entertainment, but quickly broadened the types of Tumblrs I followed--and the types of posts I made--to include politics, feminism, literary criticism, comics, and who knows what else. I love following the few MeFites I follow, because I can generally count on you guys to bring something to the dashboard that I wouldn't see in my "regular" round-up, but I follow far too few of you, and that's because I don't know who else is there!

If you want to share your Tumblr URL, and maybe a brief outline of what you post/use Tumblr for, this is the thread for you.

Oh, and I'm at tzikeh.tumblr.com, which should come as a surprise to absolutely no one.
posted by tzikeh at 10:21 AM on August 24, 2014

Wow, travelswithcats, I didn't know that function existed. Learn something every day!

Still, I think it would be useful to hear from MeFites about what they post to their Tumblrs, or even what other Tumblrs they follow, since that would give anyone who visits this thread a quick guide to some new reading in the way that clicking through and browsing nearly 500 individual blogs wouldn't.

My wife is not strictly a mefite, though we do love reading human relations askmes aloud to one another. Anyhow, she has a tumblr where she's reviewing every record in my record collection alphabetically. It managed to infuriate a significant chunk of metafilter about six months ago. You should check it out!

This is a great idea for a thread! I tumbl as katzenfabrik and I've been seeing and following MeFites over there quite a bit this summer, but more is always better. My tumblr is a mixed bag of pretty landscapes, spooky stuff, sciency stuff, a sprinking of feminism and lgbt issues, and some Avengers/Hannibal/Vampire Chronicles fannish reblogs.

I'm over here. It's not about anything in particular, but I post some fandom stuff (Avengers, Hannibal, more random stuff), art, old advertisements, random stuff that makes me laugh that I want my sister to see, lots of cats and other animals...

It's a random hodgepodge, is what I'm saying.

Here is mine; I use it to post quotes and short passages from whatever I'm reading. Usually not "inspirational" or message type quotes, just stuff that I find interesting or where I like the writing style. I used to copy them into a notebook or text file before switching to Tumblr.

I would love to find other Tumblrs like this, if anyone knows any.

This is me, though I'm kinda quiet lately. It's like 90% cats, angry feminist stuff, knitting, and attractive people hitting things and/or being hit by things. Tag cloud also suggests art, abortion, feelings, mental health, music, fandom, food, and effective advertising. Which, I guess, is a relatively accurate cross section of my interests, so...

Ooooooh this thread is making me break my MeFi hiatus because I want more friends on tumblr sooooooo bad. I am Snarl Furillo and my tumblr is about 1) personal stuff, primarily living in the middle of nowhere, being a crunchy leftie type, figuring out what to do with my life, and having an annoying mental illness and 2) reblogging racial justice stuff, black history and American history, ladies doing sports (especially gymnastics), Gina Torres, Avengers and the MCU and pink flowers.

Come be my friend, I swear I'm really nice and fun!

I have three.

On The Daily Worm, I try to keep my musical taste from aging by posting a new song every weekday.

On Skelemingo, I post my art progress. Inactive until after Halloween, as I don't want the Spooky Moon stuff I'm working on posted anywhere until then.

On Fogbound, I post art I like.

Oh, and I guess four: I did the 100 Happy Days project on frytopia, but that's gonna be inactive until there's some other project that suits.

And I have no idea why this is my first comment on mefi in a billion years.

Protip: Tumblr is a terrible place to try and post things that were written in Celtx. I guess it would have been updated more recently if I'd heard from the other guy, though he did produce some really great concepts and roughs which I guess I could post.

tumblr is an obscure image compression algorithm that some are hailing as a possible replacement for the currently-dominant nntp (which is unfortunately difficult to use freely due to licensing problems originating with Ron Rivest), and cortex used markov programming interfaces to invent it.

Yay for anything that can actually help me do tumblr better. I've had an account there forever but only recently started doing anything there.

mcmikenamara.tumblr.com hosts logopolis now, which is my "personal" one which is mostly just stuff reblogged from others with occasional journal entries and jokes that won't quite fit in twitter but I need to get out. The stuff I reblog is about 80% from other mefites, but if you're interested in things like this (fairly life changing IMHO) picture of Sigourney Weaver in her high school yearbook, you'll have a decent chance of finding stuff like that there.

The other one I started recently with a flash that has been put on hold I was considering, when it came back from being on hold, putting in Projects because it was inspired by Fanfare is The Many Hats of Laura Holt, which is a collection of head coverings worn by Stephanie Zimbalist on Remington Steele and my light commentary on the hats and this very important (to me at least) 80s feminist icon.

(Truth be told, it is on hold because I was so proud of how the first episode worth of hats turned out that I really want to do the rest right.)

I highly recommend desjardins tumblr, it's an enchanting nose of golden delicious apple and ginger with a hint of flowers in the background, with subtle undertones of snark. Light and balanced with just the right amount of acidity. Read with cheese and crackers on a hot summer day.

Tumblr is Reddit or WordPress or Blogger or Medium or Xanga or Quora or Pinterest or Google+ or Myspace or Facebook or Typepad or LinkedIn or Livejournal or or or

Tumblr has no corporate face [which is probably wise] and no default subscriptions so individual accounts which are much like individual subreddits either escape or garner attention.

Tumblr is both sometimes great and sometimes a sewer. Much like reddit. Much like Metafilter.

My tumblr is short reviews of TV shows. (Different name; I tend to pick a new character for most stuff online.) It's been a bit since I've updated, but there will probably be a lot in a month when the new shows start up. (Even though I didn't get around to summer shows.)

I have a triple Tumblr personality.

Over here is my primary Tumblr, which I consider to be my magpie nest of shiny objects I have accumulated that make me happy and/or interest me and/or make me laugh. The tag cloud on the right should give you some idea - feminism, cute animals in hats, fandoms, gender and sexuality stuff, dinosaurs, skeletons, interesting art, ceophalopods, funny signs, Pittsburgh stuff, books, etc., etc. On Saturdays I post poetry. (Not my own, god forbid.)

Over here is my Hannibal Tumblr, which is 90% actual Hannibal-related stuff, 10% cute animals in flower crowns.

I also possess, but rarely use, the Nopetopus Tumblr, which is, as you might expect, solely pictures of animals or people nope-ing. I don't actively seek content for that one, just reblog stuff as I happen to come across it, so it's ended up being 80% cats nope-ing, 20% Batman nope-ing. I probably ought to go seek a wider variety of nope-ing animals.

This is my photography: Sleepwalk LA. Mostly landscapes, mostly film, mostly LA.

This is my reblog: Found Loose. It was where I was putting cell shots I took, but is now more just concatenated weirdness.

If you like pine needles employed for typographical purposes or handwritten psychogeographic-poetic musings you might enjoy my art blog, small landmarks.

I'm Cranky Old Geeky Broad on tumblr - mostly various fandom related things, and whatever I feel fits under my cranky, old, geeky umbrella. Oh, and cats, of course.

I got all clever and went with angelchrys for my fandom/feminism/whatever else catches my attention blog.

I also run Cheer the F*ck Up Yo, which is mostly cute animals, motivational/nice quotes, and people being awesome.

I'm tortillaland. It's a mix of pretty typical tumblr stuff. Baby animals, jokes, and the occasional personal post.
posted by Pizzarina Sbarro at 9:44 PM on August 25, 2014

I mostly reblog fandom stuff (MCU and Bioware right now, with a smattering of stuff from smaller fandoms), text posts, jokes, text posts, etc. I'm at scatterdarknessscattersilence. There's also some SJ stuff and cute animals. I also advocate for a Volstagg Food Network show and then yell a lot when it doesn't go viral, get noticed by Marvel, and become a reality.

I just reblog stuff and occasionally post a scribble from work or the occasional rant.

I'm juv3nal.tumblr.com it's mostly reblogs. It would be all trippy gifs like this or this if I could find enough I liked, but there aren't so there's some art, animation and video game stuff in there as well.

I was thinking about this topic last night and how Tumblr is like a site built by someone who scanned my brain, found out all the ways my information processing is broken and or not connected, and then built a site that operates only inside my brain flaws.

I spent 3 months or so trying like hell to figure out how to really use Tumblr - how to interact or talk to people there, how the fuck you post new content, what the tags really do, how to find good Tumblrs to follow, but I eventually just gave up and stuck to reading my dash and reblogging cute things.

So, Hate and Pancakes is my weak-sauce reblog Tumblr. Good-looking actors, cute animals, some art.

I started - and then neglected - Heck Yeah Uruguay. Devoted to the Men's National Soccer Team. Of Uruguay.

I didn't even get to cover the World Cup shenanigans - of which there were many re: Suarez, as life got in the way.
posted by spinifex23 at 11:52 AM on August 26, 2014

Caveat: If you feel that, like me, Uruguayan soccer is just one of the most fascinating things on the planet, then by all means, follow along! Because that's the only thing I talk about there.

It is time for me to do a Christian Stuani Appreciation Post; maybe tonight. And then - oh God - I tackle Suarez.

Mine is called "Okay. So:" It started as a place to collect topics I've excitedly ranted at my wife about (which tends to come up by her saying "what is [geek thing]?" and I stop and say "Okay. SO:" and do like this with my hands. Now I mainly do bullet point reviews of games I've finished recently, and apparently I reblog Griphus all the time. (Maybe that means we could be pals someday????)
posted by Monster_Zero at 2:40 PM on August 26, 2014

I am mostly just reblogging stuff, but who knows, I may get crazy and post actual original content someday. I'm banjoandthepork on Tumblr, because I am obviously very creative about user names.

I live at randomproxy (as I do most places that are not metafilter). I post, in no particular order of preference: warcraft jokes, my art, other people's art, tattoos I wish I had, dumb gender things, comics, what it's like having some kinda autism spectrum thing but no diagnosis, and bird rhetorics.
posted by The demon that lives in the air at 6:01 PM on August 26, 2014

I am on tumblr as ohshitimingradschool and I post cool art, funny text posts, queer stuff, and I am the creator of the bird rhetorics tag, thank you very much.

So once upon a time I was in a conference call and on the internet and came upon a photo of fundie protesters with signs that had misspelled satan as satin. I needed to test tumblr in the browser I was working on (because it was crashing) and didn't want to see porn at work so I made churchofsatin. It has turned into mostly cat gifs and I use it to read the internets.

Hi I'm sarahnade, and my Tumblr is Look at This Little Thing. You may remember me from such podcasts as #52: Llama XRays and #58: 2011 December Awesome Post Contest Results.

But today I'm here to tell you about my other Tumblr, sarahperiwinkle.tumblr.com, where I post... just shit that I enjoy. Shit like trees, flowers, papercrafts, watercolors, and Chris Evans' left eyebrow. Sign up today, operators are standing by.

Janelle Monae is amazing and important, flamingos in bathrooms are amazing and important. They have a lot in common!

sillygwailo.tumblr.com aggregates my likes and faves across the web. If it has an RSS feed or plugs into IFTTT, I send it over to my Tumblr queue by faving it. Maybe I should auto-post my MetaFilter faves there too, hmm.

(Occasional writing goes there too, mostly just how I'm using apps to follow baseball and watch games. And quotes from paper-edition books I'm reading.)
posted by sillygwailo at 2:29 PM on August 28, 2014

Oh snap, I lied. I totally do have a Tumblr; I share it with Shepherd. It's We Have Conversations. It's about the weird-ass convos we have as a married couple because when you have two weirdos talk, odd things come out.

It hasn't been updated in a while because we moved to another province mid-summer, but I promise you that we have been jotting down stuff to post, we just need to make the time. WE WILL MAKE THE TIME.

I'm ecnef on tumblr which is just fence backwards, because I couldn't think of anything witty or original :)
It started out as a way for me to collect quotes I enjoyed from whatever I was reading, but I reblog utterly random stuff. I mainly follow authors, feminist blogs, geeky-nerdy stuff, and cute animals.

I'm everythingshimmering, and my posts are mostly graphics - so-called "glitch art" from various processes, images coded in Processing, animated GIFs, and auto-posts from my Instagram, which include the above plus occasional photographs.

Kebikeç is a blog of quotes and excerpts from the books, from the internets, from whatever I happen to read and want to remember and link to later. It's mainly for my own use, as I found that the physicality of typing these in by hand really helps me absorb the materials better. Also it is super convenient being able to just send the link of a quote when a relevant subject comes up in a conversation with friends instead of clumsily trying to paraphrase "something I once read somewhere about something like this".

Atabase started out as a collaboration between me and my housemates to build a huge collection of any and every image, of and related to Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of modern Turkey—and got fairly famous in the social media for a while. The name is a play on words ata and database: "Ata" is father/ancestor/progenitor in Turkish, so Atatürk comes to mean something like "the father of Turks"—a lofty surname the Grand National Assembly of Turkey itself had granted to Mustafa Kemal, and forbidden anyone else from having it. It's impossible to overstate and adequately convey the immensity of the place Atatürk occupies in the politics and history of Turkey to the uninitiated. And the ridiculous ubiquity of images, photos, sculptures, and sayings, and things of and about him—with often hilarious consequences, many of which probably get lost in translation.

I post a video of someone/a band playing live music (almost) every day. I've been doing it for 4 years now. It usually goes back and forth between early 70s classic rock/americana/singer songwriter stuff and stuff from this year but it's all over the place.

You can find me at Adventures in Procrastination. I post sporadically, but I really should post more often. Right now there's a bunch of reblogging of hockey stuff, as well as other things I find amusing, and pictures of my pets.
