Short version: Instead of posting everything to mitchwagner.com… first and syndicating to mitchwagner.tumblr.com…, I’m going to start posting most of that stuff to mitchwagner.tumblr.com… directly. I’ll save mitchwagner.com… for more infrequent, important updates.
I’m not making any changes, for now, to Twitter/@mitchwagner and Facebook/Groups/ThingsMitchWagnerSaw, and hopefully people who subscribe to my daily newsletter won’t see a change either.
I’m moving my ephemeral activity to mitchwagner.tumblr.com…. That’s the vast quantity of links to news articles, memes, retro-ads, photos and illustrations, and other items of interest that until now I’ve posted daily to mitchwagner.com….
mitchwagner.com… is going to be a low-frequency blog, containing only content I’ve created — posts I’ve written, and photos and videos I’ve taken. Those tings will also be shared automatically to Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, and my daily newsletter.
And I’ll continue to post the ephemera to Twitter/@mitchwagner and Facebook/Groups/ThingsMitchWagnerSaw, as I have been, as well as to my daily newsletter. Nothing there changes.
What this means to you, dear reader
Nothing changes if you follow me on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, or the email newsletter.
If you follow me on mitchwagner.com… and you like all the ephemera, you’ll need to add mitchwagner.tumblr.com… (or Twitter, Facebook or the email newsletter). For Tumblr, you don’t need to register, just bookmark that page. There’s also an RSS feed.
I post all the same content to all four places, but not always at the same time. So if you want to be sure to see everything, pick any one of those four places and you’ll be fine.
If you want to follow me in more than one place, well, have at it.
How long will this situation remain stable?
Forever, or until I get tired of it. I seem to enjoy fiddling with my social media setup as much as I do actually using it. I’ve switched to and away from Tumblr as my primary blogging platform several times over the years. It seems likely I will switch away again when I get distracted by something newer and shinier.
As for you, my dear readers; if you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or the newsletter, just keep doing what you’ve been doing and you’ll be fine. If you follow me on mitchwagner.com…, and you want to keep seeing the ephemera, switch to one of those other platforms, and you’ll be fine.
