Hi Ed, thanks for a great (and thorough) post!

Yeah, I've let my Tumblr account slide, partly due to RSI, but also because I'm sharing links on Twitter ( and to a lesser extent Stumbleupon ( What I like about both these services is the social aspect of sharing links - instead of broadcasting one stream, you're seeing what others are sharing, and there's much more interaction and community. Like a shared reading project.


Thanks, Mark. Yep, I noted above that Twittering seems to have replaced Tumbling for you. I fully agree that the point of sharing links is a community with which to share them (as opposed to my Delicious bookmarks, which are open to anyone who cares to look at them, but not proactively sent anywhere). So I do send my Tumbld links to Twitter, but at this point I like using Tumblr as an archive, of sorts, of my shared links, while Twitter includes those links along with more ephemeral tweets.

I've never found StumbleUpon compelling--it seemed too intrusive when I first took a look, but that was ages ago, and I'm sure it's a better service now.

But at the moment I'm focused on sorting out 1) how my various feeds and networks (this blog, Tumblr, Twitter, FriendFeed and Facebook) are integrated, so that I can "tune" them to best meet my needs (and avoid generating redundant content), and 2) finding the best way to tweet on my clunky Treo 680, with which I have a love/hate relationship.

Just wanted to clarify some things with Zemanta. All the recommendations we show are there for you to pick. We don't insert things that you don't explicitly click on in order to give you a full editorial control. You can turn things like Reblog off in preferences if you don't like extra links to your blog :)
