The NaBloPoMo Pgh Tumblr & How to Post to Tumblr

A week ago, I accepted the challenge to join my fellow Pittsburgh bloggers and over 2000 bloggers from around the globe for NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month).  You can read more about NaBloPoMo here.

Nablopomopgh-screenshotBloggers who are participating in NaBloPoMo are encouraged to share their posts with the other participants over at BlogHer by adding a link to this post.

Since there are several Pittsburgh bloggers participating, I thought it would be nice to have a place for Pittsburgh bloggers to share their daily postings.  Tumblr is a great solution for quickly setting up a group blog.  Meet the NaBloPoMo Pittsburgh Tumblr – nablopomopgh.tumblr.com and on Twitter @NaBloPoMoPgh.
