I opened the Social Contact thread today. I've noticed Tumblr is a medium a lot of sites use. Anyone use it or have thoughts.

I'd kind of like a FANgirl Tumblr that has relevant stuff in images, but have no experience. Does anyone know if you can use multiple managers? So if I had a few people interested they could share stuff too. I could do that with FANgirl Zone, the Facebook page, and wondered if there was any interest from people to help promote things all things fangirl?

I had a Tumblr account for a while but it was just one account too many. A lot of people do use it though and it's simple enough.

I don't know whether you can have multiple managers because that wasn't an issue for me. If you want, I'll take a look - unless someone else has more information already.

I'm kind of image-based anyway. :p

I surf it from time to time (usually for hours when I do :p) and I have a private inspiration tumblr. You can have group tumblrs. Currently the way they prefer you do it is to create your own primary blog and then from there you can create a secondary blog and invite other users to contribute to the secondary blog.

Here's some more info: Group Blog Management


I'd contribute if you started one.

I just knew you'd know.

Tricia, you'll have to come up with a brilliant tie-in name, though. Fangirl is overused by...well, it's overused. Even Fangirlzone.

Hotshot, Tumblr is asking me to find 5 things to follow and I can't find one. All I see is crap.

Obviously, I'm not searching the right terms. Any hints?

It doesn't give you a whole lot of options when you do that initial search. Plus sometimes people use a user name that has nothing to do with what they usually blog about.

Possible suggestions of tumbrs to look at:
astronomypictureoftheday
theacademy
tosche-station
corelliaorbust
dbsw (distracted by star wars)
retrostarwars
allterrainarmoredtransport
textsfromstarwars
nasagifs
clubjade

There are a lot of ones that start with F*yeah... (but spelled out) PrincessLeia, HanSolo, HanandLeia...

There are also a lot of HungerGames ones too... citizens-of-panem...

Tumblrs always have odd names anyway. Brainstorming time!

OH and thanks for the information, Solo_and_Fel! I may take you up on that. The Leia/Fisher interview your shared was one of the things that got me back thinking on that track.

Got a Tumblr today to give it a try. Jedi Warrior Princess - I think that's it.
