    Someone I was talking to on another forum mentioned using tumblr for traffic. When I went to the site, I was a bit confused. It appears to be a web hosting service for people who want to post things like articles, pictures, videos, and so on but everything can be customized in a theme like wordpress. Is this like a "micro blog" or something?

    I never heard of it being called a micro-blog but that is a good way of putting it. It is more a less a social platform for people who want to make their page their own. They allow just about anything on that site which is likely why it was recommended. I find that a majority of it's users are ages 12 to 24 and female. If that is not a target for your niche, I would not bother.

    I know plenty of people who have used the site who are older so I wouldn't worry too much about age. I do think it is accurate though to say that the main target base is 12 to 24 but there is still plenty of older people on there.

    I have only heard of a few people calling it a micro-blog. I wish that term would catch on. I kind of consider Twitter the in between. It is social media but also somewhat micro-blogging.

    Thanks for verifying that. I guess it is not really my target range for my niche but I can still make a try at it. Seems easy enough to set up an account and it is free so why not?

    Twitter has much less of an option to actually customize and write long items. I don't consider it anywhere near a blog, not even a micro one. It is just social media and nothing more.
