I can’t help it if I actually adore pretty much every trend touched on in this article.

I’ve seen people who write out descriptions for images but I never have. I think I’m going to start now — I might even go add descriptions to all the images in SpringBlog’s queue right now.
I am frankly a little upset to read that Tumblr puts so little value in being properly accessible :/
I get stabby when things auto-tweet. It’s like if a ventriloquist snuck up behind me and made me insult my friends.
It’s hard to organize Tumblr blogs by topic. A single one of your blogs may include your personal updates, your art, your opinions, and a YouTube video of a cat speaking Japanese, all in a single day. This has been a real limitation of the current Tumblr Directory. So, for the last few weeks we’ve been experimenting with some brand new tools for exploring Tumblr.
The new Explore page organizes and filters posts by tag. This means that every tagged post has a chance to show up in front of an audience of millions that might not otherwise see it. Think Tumblr Radar by topic.
Up top, the Tumblr Wire makes a return, pulling in featured posts in realtime. Below is a list of popular and trending tags (currently English only, with more languages coming soon). You can also Track these tags to get notifications on your Dashboard when a new post is featured.
Make sure to tag your posts where relevant to help more people find you. You can still look up any tag using the search box on your Dashboard.
We’ve already started finding posts and following blogs that we had no idea existed. Please give it a spin!
So, I actually have a more formal blog that I’ve been horribly neglecting (and which I should keep up with because it’s useful for my presence on the internet in a professional way vs Tumblr which is more… fangirling). I just bothered to put together this post for it on why I don’t think Facebook should ever offer the design freedoms that, say, MySpace or Tumblr do. (I keep wanting to say “MySpace did” because it feels like MySpace should be dead like Geocities…)
Is often not just figuring out how to achieve something but figuring out how to achieve it in a similar way for everyone who sees it.
It might be a long night.
