A great site

I think I know why I’ve been a lazy tumblr over the past few months…

It’s because I cannot stand tumblr’s dashboard.

A couple of months ago, I wrote that I should probably look into importing all of the tumblrs I follow into Google Reader so I can actually keep up with the updates. Between Facebook, Google Reader, and Twitter, by the time I finally got to tumblr, I gave up…which is unfortunate because there are a lot of great tumblrs out there.

But I procrastinated with the task, probably because I was so busy with settling into the apartment at the time and eventually forgot about it.

Now, I’m getting back into the tumblogosphere and so far, I’m almost done with importing the 88 tumblrs I follow…and I wonder why I didn’t do this sooner. 

Take note, tumblr. 

I’m looking forward to looking at your updates once more, everyone.

google reader > tumblr dashboard

Over the next couple of days, I’m going to be importing all of the Tumblr blogs I follow into my Google Reader. 

I just find the Tumblr Dashboard so clunky. I always feel like I’m bombarded with text and images and that I’m not really paying attention to what anyone is posting. I find myself skimming. Whereas on Google Reader, I find myself taking the time to read the post. Personally, I think that the Tumblr Dashboard is in need of a huge overhaul.

Does anyone else think so?
