Jakealoo on Tumblr

TumblrScreenShotI recently began posting photos and ephemera on Tumblr and have found it to be one of the quickest and most rewarding ways to share content on the internet. Ephemeral Thoughts will continue to be the place for more in-depth content while my Tumblr blog will receive 3 to 4 posts a day!

You don’t need to join Tumblr to view my posts but if you do you can follow me and automatically view my posts on your dashboard. Also, I tweet every Tumblr post so you can click on the links in the “My Twitter Feed” section of the Ephemeral Thoughts home page. Alternatively you can browse my posts via these links:
