Tumblr Love


I love social media, but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming. It doesn’t stop me though from finding new ones and signing up accounts. My new favorite one that I’ve signed up for is Tumblr. Tumblr is another microblog site kinda like Twitter, but it is different in that it is more like little bursts of thoughts or a catalog of your favorite stuff that you find around the net. You can post your favorite photos that you find, quotes, links, videos, or audio. It’s whatever you want to say, but in general, it’s not like you have to do a full blown blog post. My favorite tumblr accounts are those that are filled with inspiring images. Below are a list of links to other tumblr members that inspired me.

The Dainty Squid
She loves kitsch and color as much as I do 🙂 She has

Comically Vintage
Love the style of old comics, then this one is for you!

I promise, it’s not as bad as it sounds. It actually is just a bunch of projects that will make you want to salivate and make yourself.

Jen Bekman Projects
This one satisfies my photography and design sweettooth.

Stoopidgerl always amazes me with the things she finds. She’s my friend on Flickr, too.

PeeWee’s Playhouse
If you love everything PeeWee, you’ll love this one!

And there’s a very subversive side to Tumblr as well. People make collections of the same type of everyday object and post gobs and gobs of photos on that one topic (think Failblog, Awkward Family Photos. About the subversive side, if you click on the link and look at the actual name of the tumblr account, you’ll see what I mean, I just don’t want to post that word on my blog…

Some of the collections and inspiration…

Pretty Bows




Lady Gaga

And of course, I can’t help to mention my own tumblr account… Swelldesigner’s Tumblr. I post a lot of colorful posters, photos, illustration, and inspiration.

Anyway, just wanted to share one place where I find inspiration!

Until next time Swellions!!
