If you’re a Tumblr user, just a quick announcement you can now find me active there.
While I’ve had a Tumblr account for a couple years now (and have used it in various capacities—at VQR and University of Cincinnati), I’m now using it as a way to talk about everything not pertaining to writing advice.
Some people have asked me if Tumblr is a replacement for WordPress or a main website. As of today, my answer is no. But I look forward to sharing insight and advice on Tumblr for writers, after I spend more time using it. (Feel free to ask questions about Tumblr in the comments, though.)
