A New Home For Inspiration
A new system with old technology. Tumblr has been around since February 2007 but I have just jumped on the band-wagon, eleven years later. Andrew Backhouse Design’s Tumblr can be found HERE.
Tumblr (stylized as tumblr) is a microblogging and social networking website founded by David Karp in 2007 and now owned by Oath Inc. The service allows users to post multimedia and other content to a short-form blog. Users can follow other users’ blogs. Bloggers can also make their blogs private. For bloggers, many of the website’s features are accessed from a “dashboard” interface but it does prove a good way of organising inspiration. Which is what I intend to use it for.
My tumblr is built around a custom profile theme. Just threw some HTML together for that having taken my inspiration for it from existing builds. After all, the site is to act as a catalogue of inspiration.
The first post was a few scans of a book digitised. The original copy was written/drawn in the 1850’s and the subject at hand is Japanese Heraldry of the Samurai.
The image above is taken from it. To see more click on the micro-blog, click HERE.
