Sorry Tumbleloggers

Written by Alcides Fonseca at 2007/11/19

My last post on microblogging mentioned Tumblelogs and that a lot of people are starting to use them instead of traditional blogs because they can share more types of content in a easier way.

I’m sorry to disappoint you, my friends, but I won’t be subscribing your tumblelogs. I subscribe a lot of stuff and I just don’t have the time to go through all the junk stuff you log. I do believe they might be useful for you, but I don’t see other people following yours. Ok, unless they have too much free time!

I value traditional blogs a lot since I get a lot of content from it, specially opinions and cool links. That’s right, if I want to highlight some link or picture or video or any other thing that really matters to me, I blog it and that’s it. If you don’t want to give you the trouble for that: a) Install Flock, makes blogging everything much easier and please do write something about it, or else it will be a tumblelog running on a blog. b) del.icio.us it tagged as “for:alcidesfonseca”.

Oh, and when writing this, I found out that Veronica Belmont has the exact same opinion on this!
