Tumblr, tumbling, tumbl

So I started a tumblr. Mainly because my sister's tumblr is so cool. It's basically Twitter and a blog in one. Short posts, interesting, links to other websites, pictures. You get the idea. It's awesome.

I feel like it hasn't gained as much popularity as Twitter or regular blogging mainly because people simply haven't discovered it much. But to me, it seems more substantial than a Twitter and not as time consuming as a regular blog. I'm going to try to keep up with it.

Check it out here.
Does anyone else have a tumblr?

And the winner is..........

SUETheTRex . Sue has the best Twitter I have ever seen. Sue is the largest, most complete T-Rex skeleton ever discovered. She lives at the Chicago Field Museum and I really can't get enough of her Twittering. The main reasons I love her Tweets?
1. Sue gives me updates about her life, like what she did that day or who came to see her. And a T-Rex's daily life is never boring.
2. Sue is funny. Whether is be her joking about her short arms or loving meat. Her Tweets always make me laugh.
3. The links she post are actually interesting. Like this one. And this one.
4. Sue makes me want to go see her at the Museum. I have actually seen before I started following her. She was cool then but now, even cooler. I can't wait to go back.
5. I imagine some 20 something PR girl writing these every day. She must have so much fun thinking like a T-Rex. It makes me want a job where I can Tweet all day. I never thought I would say that.
So when it comes to Tweeting, it doesn't all have to be informative, or selling a product, building your network, or showing off your stuff. Sometimes it can just be fun and entertaining, nothing more than that. This is the type of Twitter I like.
Does anyone else have fun Twitterers you follow?
