    What is a tumblog? You had that on slide #5 but no where else. I’ve never heard of it.

    Hi Virginia. You might be more familiar with the spelling tumblelog. Maybe the term is becoming redundant, but it describes a simple blogging programme like Tumblr and Posterous that enables quick and easy short-form, multimedia posting, with a focus on reblogging within a community of users. I use my Tumblr site to collect and archive (non-academic) content, though I know many people find them more than adequate as a main blogging platform. We recommended them in the session as good entry-level tools for new bloggers.
