I was inspired to start this page for a three reasons. First, I’ve had quite a few friends who have started tumblr pages so that they could have an easy way to show off kid photos to family and friends. I’ve got a lot of those types of photos too and I want to show em’ off as well. Second, tumblr reminds me of what I love about Instagram, which I’ve mentioned before is the freedom to post photos without feeling that I am posting them for any specific audience. The application itself is meant for photography so I don’t have to feel like I am clogging up a social media website with pictures of my kids. I feel like tumblr lends itself to this same idea. I don’t have to post for any specific audience other that myself. I don’t mind if family and friends want to take a peek now and then but I’m not making it for a blogging audience like Colz and I do with this site. Thirdly, I need to stay nimble with my design skills. I want every post to be an exercise in design, not only graphic design but web design as well.
I will always be posting at deucecitieshenhouse.com but I’ll be posting all the stuff that’s happening at La Casa Allen on my tumblr site. Take a look if you like:
