Tumblr and Pinterest

Recently there have been Two social medias that I have been really involved in investigating them and learning as much as I can about them.

1. 

My Tumblr blog

I really like how engaged other tumblrs get into rebloging and sharing all the great stuff that is on tumblr.

You can find some great niches on Tumblr of other people who tumble the  same kind of stuff that you tumble. When you Post a really cute kitty picture, more times then not, the people who reblog your photo also like really cute kitty pictures, and so on and so forth.

2. 

My Pinterest Profile

The idea of Pinterest “sharing photos” is not a new idea, but the way you are able to share the photos, is what I think makes Pinterest so great.

Pinterest cuts out the big popularity contest on social medias  so you don’t have to be a well known  person/brand or a social media expert, to have your content seen. Pinterest is made so the photos you share can be seen and shared.

A New Way To Showcase Old Posts

As of October 18th WordPress.com has come out with two new themes.

These themes enable you to showcase some of your older but important blog posts that might have otherwise have gotten lost down the blogroll. These two themes display your important posts with style.

iTheme2

“iTheme2′s beautiful Apple-inspired design makes it the perfect theme for technology and Mac related blogs but it also has some really neat features – like a custom header image, custom background, alternate color schemes, and a really neat featured post carousel – that make it perfect for almost any blog.”

This theme is a free theme for those who have a blog with WordPress.com.

Bold News

Bold News

“Bold News is a clean, well defined magazine theme design with a unique featured post slider to highlight noteworthy content. With 4 widgetized regions and the customization functionality of the theme options, this theme really paves the way in the magazine theme space.”

Bold News is a Premium WordPress.com theme that is available for you to buy and activate and personalize. This theme comes with some really extensive customization options with the “Woo Themes panel”.

These themes are really great if you have some posts that you don’t wont to get lost in all the ongoing blog posts.
