Seven reasons I’ve started a new Tumblr micro-blog:

  • It’s one central place where I can keep edifying quotes and other nuggets I come across in the course of my daily ministry.
  • It’s a place I can return to and prayerfully meditate on some of the things I’ve learned in the course of my spiritual pilgrimage.
  • It reminds me of people I’ve met and should be praying for.
  • It prevents my main blog – and your RSS and email subscriptions to HeadHeartHand (!) – being clogged up with too many mini-posts.
  • It enables others to benefit from some of the things God is teaching me.
  • It allows me to auto-post material greater than 140 characters to Twitter via a headline and link.
  • It directs readers to good books and other helpful resources.
  • It’s not Facebook!

You can find A Disciple’s Diary here.

    Hey David, just started my own tumblr this week too, for similar reasons (mostly). Would be interested to know if you’re sending Kindle quotes direct to tumblr and, if so, how to set that up.

      No, Dick, I haven’t tried that and didn’t think it was possible.

    Same here, Dr. Murray. Follow me if you are interested.
