Tumblin' With Tumblr, Still

Is it even fair that I tinker around with my Tumblr but go to Authpad to write? This is just a quick one on what I've been messing around with on Tumblr. I did say I would do some more theme-fitting, which I did, and I've finally settled on the theme, Thinker. It's a minimalist theme that suited...

Onto The Next: Tumblin' With Tumblr

I did say I was on a mission to find the truest minimalist blogging platform out there. Where Throwww used to top my list, Authpad has taken over and I'm a couple of entries in, on top of the the page contents. Next on my list is Tumblr.

I wanted to know why he didn't make it to her wake and burial, if he even knew that Mama had passed away. Neighbors pointed us to a small apartment. There...

Why Did I Even Bother?

I remember blogging in the now-deprecated site, Multiply.com, and got a quite an engagement. I won't lie, I enjoyed it there, especially when it came to tinkering around with customization functions. It was fulfilling when I set my site and profile up, every inch to my liking. It motivated me to ...
