What a lovely calm week after the frenzy of the one before… So much so that I ran out of topics to write about and didn’t post yesterday. There is only so much “collection” stuff I can prompt… However, the positive side effect was that I had time to shrine.
Blink blink blink… I look forward to unveiling this lot. Soon.
Let’s see what tumblr had on offer this week. Quick word ahead, though: A couple of weeks ago tumblr was sold to Automattic, the company behind WordPress. An interesting acquisition. They snapped up tumblr for really cheap. When it was initially sold a few years ago to Yahoo, the now defunct company had to pay a whopping 1.1 billion US-Dollars for it. Now, it was only worth a fraction of the price: 3 measly million US-Dollars. However, tumblr and WordPress are a good fit – they are both blogging platforms, and it looks as if the CEO of Automattic will not meddle with tumblr to its detriment but bring back what made tumblr a success in the first place: quick, easy blogging and reblogging, as well as a kind of timeline-based pin board with a social element. We’ll see what happens – and if the new ownership will bring new rules and hopefully reinvigorate the community there.
