Smartphones and mobile applications make the process of posting pictures to a personal “Photo365″ photo blog or a “Photo180″ class blog very easy. This is an example of “the ethic of minimal clicks” I highlight in my eBook, “Playing with Media.” Here are the steps I use to post a photo each day to my 365 Photo blog using the free site and iOS app, Tumblr. Follow these steps after creating a free account on Tumblr and downloading the free app to your mobile device.
Step 1: Launch the Tumblr app
Step 2: Click “Post” at the bottom of the screen and then click “Photo”
Step 3: Click “Choose Photo” to share a photo already on your camera roll, otherwise click “Take Photo” and capture one.
Step 4: Select the photo you want to share by clicking on it in your camera roll.
Step 5: Type the text you want to post with your photo (include appropriate Twitter hash tags if you’ve configured your Tumblr account to crosspost to Twitter)
Step 6: Click Post and then view your shared photo online!
