Tumblr and Me
For a long time I couldn’t work out why I would want to use Tumblr. For those unfamiliar with the site, Tumblr is a place where you can easily share… well anything. Links, photos, thoughts, etc. For me, I couldn’t see the use. I already had a blog where I could do all of that.
But then my life changed. I graduated from college and stopped being a full time student. I began working full time for my church, as well as additional writing and speaking gigs for other organisations. The amount of time and energy I had for writing reviews and commenting on pop culture suddenly decreased. And the content for Pop Culture Christ started slowing down. I wanted to write more, but it just wasn’t happening for me.
And that’s when Tumblr sparked my interest. I’m always coming across things that I want to share, but either they don’t fit the criteria of a Pop Culture Christ post or I don’t have the time to write an article on it but want to get it out there anyway. Tumblr works for me because I can keep getting content out there without having to sit down to write an 800 word article.
Does this mean the end of Pop Culture Christ? Most certainly not! Pop Culture Christ will continue to exist as a place where I upload sermons and write reviews and Christian themed articles. I’m hoping that as I get more into the rhythms of full time parish life that I’ll be able to commit to writing even more. But if you want the full experience, follow me on Tumblr. I’m having a lot of fun. And if you like the kinds of things I like, I’m sure you’ll have fun as well.
