    here's mine.

    in theory it combines the feeds of my flickr and blog along with occasional content unique to itself. Haven't been so regular at any of these lately, keep meaning to correct.

    Random Chit

    Had it for almost a couple of years, ever since Warren first talked about it. It's meant to be what the name suggests - random stuff I feel like sharing with whoever happens to come across it. Occasionally I use it to pop something up for friends/family to see. My girlfriend posted some pics when she was traveling through Iran visiting family recently. Like some others here, I keep meaning to make more use of it.

    I was mostly using my Tumblr as you are, Warren. As a notebook, or scrapbook of random shit that I liked. Mobile blog posts of photographs that I can send from my phone to the blog. Whatever else, also: music tracks I liked, articles. A kind of online filing cabinet. That's all Tumblr is really good for.

    I find myself using it more and more now with my work load piling up and not as much time to spend blogging on my site, so I've been using the Tumblr as literally the only thing to share stuff I like and little else. Though with my increased use of the site I have noticed a disturbing quality: Tumblr is quite a bit like the worse of the worse on LiveJournal--online bitching columns about their lives, and snipes at individual users, and I can't help but think those people are missing the point. I feel like its best being used to share stuff you like and as a online notebook or mobile blog. Its not for bitching and moaning.

    End rant. Here's mine:

    afternoon. I contribute to a group Tumblr:

    my general/'scrapbook' Tumblr has been neglected/underused, etc..Tumblarity currently at zero!

    my niche one, which has turned into a bit of a time-consuming monster:

    I have one more purpose for my Tumblr that I'm working on: media sharing.

    I come across great stuff on Whitechapel - YouTube videos and music, let's say - and want one place not only to dump them, but to have them then also be universally available across all my devices.

    Tumblr's RSS feed is nearly there, but not quite. What I really need is a 'notebook' type service that lets me flag specifically media objects - PDF, MP3, MP4, YouTube and embeddable Flash videos in general - and reformats them on the fly into a bare RSS feed that just offers a link to the media object, tagged and sorted by date. Getting Tumblr's RSS feed on my TV and mobile device works fine, but since it doesn't offer a plain list of media objects, my mobile feed reader and media center's feed reader don't know what to do with them and only show me the text. The dream scenario is that I'm just reading along on WC or Google Reader, tag media objects into Tumbler as I go, then be able to sit down that night in front of the telly or with my phone, and they are all just *there*, in a queue ready to be consumed.

    I'm going to maybe play around with the API to see if I can get this easily enough with some scripting.

    Goddamnit, now I'm on there. Using it to post pics from my iPhone (a device also known as Handheld Cockphone of Satan).

    And I've followed every single person here. Hope that's okay.

    I started this one YEARS AGO, then abandoned it. I've only just gone back to it, so it's a little... random.

    Yes, "I'm in your Fort..." again. Stunningly creative, I know. But then I'm not sure what to do with the fool thing yet, though. Aside from collecting random things and have them transmit to my Twitter at the same time. Also, not sure who to follow.

    Well, at least this thread solved that second bit for me.
