Tumbling Down the Rabbit Hole

By robinpika, found via Poisoned Apple on Tumblr.
Well, not exactly. That title’s a little misleading and irrelevant actually; this post has nothing to do with rabbit holes. Or Alice. The ‘tumbling’ bit does have a point though, because today I bring you news of my latest online adventure! Yes folks, I’ve gone and started a Tumblr mini-blog.

I didn’t even really mean to, it just sort of happened before I realised what I was doing. I couldn’t sleep the other night so I thought I’d go on a wee quiet wander round blogland. One of my visits was to A Cottage in the Woods where the lovely Zuzu has been proclaiming the wonders of the Tumblr for some weeks now. Previously I’d resisted the urge to dip my toes in the whirlpool of mini-blogging, knowing what I’m like when it comes to these online avenues of procrastination.  But, wouldn’t you know, half an hour after just going over for a nosy of Zuzu’s wonderful page I was trying out themes and fonts for my own wee Tumblr. I just couldn’t help myself!

I know, first Flickr and now Tumblr. I seem to be developing a bit of a thing for sites that discriminate against the letter ‘e’. Ah, the modern world and it’s wacky ways. Don’t worry though, I’m not going to let my extracurricular internetting get in the way of this blog. I realise I’ve been slacking here a little bit recently- I’d planned to post every single day of October- but I’ve plenty of posts lined up for the next wee while. My tumblring is only going to be for when I’m not in the mood or don’t have time for proper blogging.  And it may even help provide inspiration for posts here too, there’s so many wondrous treasures to be found on there. Like this:

I came across the image at a great little blog called Library Land, who'd reblogged it from An Apple a Day, but it didn’t have a click-through link so I can’t tell you much else about it. Do any of you know the story behind it? It looks amazing! Anyway folks, drop me a line if you have your own Tumblr page so I can follow you. You can check out my own here, though I haven’t got too many images up there yet. Still just testing the water, you know. Well, hope you’re all having a lovely evening!

p.s. I’ll be back with a more Halloweeny post tomorrow. May as well make the most of the spooky season while it’s still upon us!

Oh, Róisín, I said the same thing about Tumblr when I first started - things like oh, it's just a place to store & share some pics and I'll add to it every once and a while. Ha-ha, now I'm hooked. I visit daily and love it! :)
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Jeanne and Laura, do go check it out but proceed with caution! Take note from Zuzu here and be careful you don't become hooked. It's already too late for me, save yourselves!

Zuzu, you are right though. It is fun!

You are amazing. Liked your Tumblr and subscribed by RSS feed...but don't know how I can find the time to keep up with something else new...not enough hours in the day!

Róisín said...

Aw, thank you so much KY! I'm actually heading over to it now soon for a wee while 'cause I'm having trouble uploading photos here. It's really handy for passing the hours on these dark evenings when you're too tired to do anything else (and when Blogger's playing up). Anyway, thanks again for your lovely comment and also for calling by. Hope you're having a lovely night!
