I realize this may be a moot question, since I update so infrequently, but I recently made a Tumblr (Confessions of a Failed Villainess, where I post geeky stuff, fashion stuff, music odds and ends and various things I am into...) and naturally, due to my interest in Sims and various simmers, I started following a lot of folks over there. It seems much more active than Livejournal, but I still find some of the ins and outs odd. (Also, I miss the LJ style posts of picture-caption-picture-caption type stuff. It seems so much more image based and less story based.) I have a learning curve, I'm sure due to the fact that I am old. (You kids get offa my lawn!)

I've been wondering now if I should start a Simblr separate from my current Tumblr blog to post my Sims stuff to just for tidiness' sake. I'd likely only post a few images and link back to full posts here (should I ever make a post again, har har...). I guess I am wondering if people prefer Simblrs to be 100% Sims-only content- it seems almost every week people are complaining on SimSecret about people posting non-Sims stuff on their Simblrs. Also, seems like there is a lot of drama over there, which is strange. I don't know, maybe I just missed all the drama on LJ because I'm not active enough.

In other things, I will be upgrading my computer finally from Window XP to Windows 7, and getting a larger hard drive/more memory, so I am looking forward to that. It's been far too long coming.

Anyway! If anyone has opinions about Tumblr vs. Livejournal, Simblr vs. general Tumblr, feel free to comment away. Just thinking about it makes me feel rather old and out of date!

If you do go the route of a simblr, I'd highly recommend a separate one (and on a separate email, if you can manage!) I have my main/simblr ones connected as such I follow a cluster of personal blogs and sim ones (over 3000 and it's a great mix of sherlock, dr. who, supernatural, sims, and everything else). It gets crazy, so I think it'd save you the headache!

I do enjoy tumblr for a quick upload of picture; it can be very handy. And there are layouts out there that show the text etc so the captions are easier to read (an example is mine, where it doesn't show them vs Drew's, which does). So overall I'm not much help! I enjoy tumblr for its ease of sharing pictures but I definitely think it's made things more quiet here.

I send what the other commenter said. I made my simblr an extentsion of my personal non-simming account, and I can't follow anyone back on it, or if I want to follow a fellow sim player, they can't make the connection. BTW, I just started following you. ;)
