I used to post a lot of art to this blog, but it got to be too time consuming, so I joined Tumblr. Which was awesome and much easier, especially for reblogging images from other Tumblr accounts. There were still a couple of problems though:
- Unless the image was already on Tumblr, I still had to download it and re-upload it. That’s time consuming and I was building up a huge folder of images (and links, because I think it’s important to attribute where I get everything), because I couldn’t get through the process as quickly as I could find cool stuff.
- My love of organization and categories was making me start multiple Tumblrs with different themes. Which only made the process that much more complicated.
Enter Pinterest, a site where I can share images from anywhere on the Internet with the click of a button, show different categories on the same page, and have the attributions show up automatically. It’s a freaking answer to prayer.
I’ll still keep the Tumblr account, but I’ve already started using it mostly for capturing quotes that I want to remember. I see it becoming a place to catch miscellania that doesn’t fit anywhere else. If you like the art that I’ve been sharing there, I hope you’ll check out my Pinterest page. It’s pretty awesome.
