Tumbling without a mat

A short time ago, I signed up for a Tumblr account. Why? I’m not really sure. I’d seen it mentioned quite a bit on Twitter and around the ‘net. I’d clicked on it a few times, but didn’t really get it. I don’t really need another blogging platform because I have this blog and, no matter what social media platforms come and go, this blog is my living room.
