My love of Mashups and Tumblr


 

Because I’m so cool, I always make sure I turn up late for the party – In a literal sense anyway.

In the tech and online world however, that just doesn’t cut it – Snooze and you loose!

Over the past few months I’ve been getting into Tumblr. Now I know this isn’t something new, I have dabbled in it before but never really took it seriously.

At first I didn’t get it, it was hard to know what was original content and if there even was any original content on there at all. Once I dived right in though, it became more apparent. It’s not simply about blogging. It’s about currating and sharing.

So I decided to pick a theme for my Tumblr and stick with it. I needed something that was almost effortless with endless content to post. Now I’m massively into my music and I’ve always been slightly obsessed with remixes and cover versions. So that was it.

My theme seemed to go with the nature of Tumblr. I would simply curate videos from YouTube and share them with a little info on my Tumblr.

What surprised me was the instant reception I got for my posts. People were liking and re-blogging my posts straight away. It was great. Maybe I just chose the perfect content or maybe these people were just really nice.

At the moment it’s all a bit of fun but maybe I’ll find a better use for it. Do you have any ideas or experiences you’d like to share?
