Some of you may have noticed that I’m using my Tumblr account more and more often these days. there are two main reasons. 1) I am trying to retrain myself away from simply sharing things on Facebook because many of the things I want to share should be shared with more people than just the 100 or so friends I keep on Facebook and 2) It is easy from anywhere (computer, iPhone, iPad) to email a link or a video or a picture to my Tumblr account and it will be formatted correctly, whereas the email situation to post on a self-hosted WordPress account such as Living the Liminal is kind of a pain to set up.
However, I still want LtL to be the primary hub of my online presence (at least for the time being: I may eventually switch over to PeterCWood.com as my primary website, but that probably won’t be for at least 3-4 years from now). So, I’m trying to use IFTTT to funnel everything through LtL. Currently I have Instagram photos being piped to LtL and I’m trying to get Tumblr posts to automagically appear there as well. So far, my two previous tests haven’t work. Hopefully this one will.
From there, the next step will be to make sure that only new posts to LtL and my Flickr account get sent over to Facebook.
