Now don’t get me wrong. There are some tumblrs out there I enjoy quite a bit… I’ve linked to them in my blog roll. But as a whole, it just doesn’t interest me. My problems with them include:
- Most of them look alike
- They generally only post a couple of pics at a time
- They just repost & share the same pics over and over and over and over…
- They’re a pain to search
- There’s typically very little in the way of text
Personally, I enjoy longer and more detailed posts. And mixing in lengthy text when necessary. As you know. 😉
But at the same time, I do see the writing on the wall. They definitely are gaining in popularity. And I do have to admit that it’s nice to not have to click an extra “Do you realize this contains adult content?” button before viewing.
Side note: Although part of me wonders how much longer that will go on. As other articles have stated, the social network Ning (which used to host the original feet.tv) kicked off all of it’s adult content due to people complaining that any minor could easily access adult content. Will tumblr have to do the same one day? Time will tell, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that day ever comes, or at the very least, they add a warning page as well.
Okay, I do have a tumblr account. Originally, it was so I could contact and comment on other tumblrs. I hardly have anything up on mine at all. (Despite that, I have a couple followers!) Part of me says I’m pretty busy already managing two blogs and a Twitter. But I can see myself posting pics over there that couldn’t be easily posted here, either because they blur the line between bondage and gear fetish, are uncategorizable, focus on candid male feet (which I do enjoy quite a bit, and don’t usually get to post here), or have a more humorous and/or irreverent bent. I think a tumblr could be used well to that end.
Not to mention the fact that I’m seeing a few pics of mine floating around on tumblr… and a few with the tags cut off. I think I need to represent myself when that occurs.
So I think I am going to go for it. Now, I don’t see my Tumblr account ever overtaking this blog… this will always remain as my main blog for the foreseeable future. Take a look at the pics currently in my Twitter feed to get an idea of content. I think I’ll make the Twitter pics more directly related to things in my real life (such as candid male feet, my feet, my outfits, hot guys I see on the street, etc.), and the tumblr will be more net finds. Although the line may cross once in a while.
There’s not much there yet, but feel free to visit and/or follow TiedFeetGuy Tidbits on Tumblr. Updates will be pretty random over there, without any predictable schedule. But some of you may enjoy it.
