Tumblr was perhaps the most amusing of the three experiments and arguably the most successful.
Can I justify it as supporting my Indian heritage via an Indian domain?
Anyway, wasteb.in seemed like a good place to put together things I find funny or interesting on the internet. And since "Tumblr lets you effortlessly share anything," it seemed like a good match.
My experiment with Tumblr started with creation of the blog, a bit of thinking, and a massive 24 hour downtime. I realize 24 hours of downtime was highly unusual (even by Tumblr standards, where 99% uptime isn't always a given) but it was a pretty good taste of what was to come in the following month.
Just about every time I found something silly that I wanted to post, I'd head over to Tumblr and be greeted by a message that told me Tumblr would be back shortly. I'd refresh and sometimes my dashboard would show up, sometimes it wouldn't.
Over the last month or so, though, the experience has improved. When I find things, I throw them into my queue and I generally have a queue of 5 or so things to share. While Tumblr upgraded their servers are down message with TumbleBeasts, I'm actually seeing the message less often.
The one thing that still annoys me is scheduling posts. Before I started using the queue, I would manually schedule posts from my drafts folder. They never posted when they were supposed to, regardless of whether I used relative dates or actual dates. Which is why I have my queue set up to post once/day at some random time during the day -- like a really slow drip.
That said, this project has probably been the most fun. I actually like sharing things on tumblr, even if I'm just sharing with myself. I can go look back at all my tweets, but those are links out to the original content. Tumblr lets me aggregate the content into one place and still keep the links to the source as well.
