I came across tumblr this week from a number of sources, including Tony Vincent’s excellent learninginhand blog. It’s a basic, easy-to-use blogging platform with a number of pre-set templates for blog posts: regular, photo, quote, link, conversation, and video.

The great thing is that tumblr automatically formats the post according to the content, making it even easier for first-time bloggers:

There’s some advanced options – (custom) themes, hosting it on your own domain, and other blog settings. For those wanting to take things further, tumblr can automatically post things from an RSS feed. Meaning that if you hook it up to a Twitter account, for example, you’ve got a really powerful – yet simple – (mobile) blogging soluion!
