and welcome to the DHBC Tumblog!
We decided to use Tumblr to present our project to all of you as it plays nicely with all different types of media. If any of you would like a better understanding of what Tumblr can do, there is a how-to on the the class blog.
This space is designed as a meeting place for all the DHBC’s social media channels. With the ability to import Twitter and Facebook feeds, as well as export content produced on here to those sites, Tumblr is great to bring everything together.
We also hope that local businesses and community members will interact with the Tumblog. Through posting pictures, videos and short text bursts about the DHBC’s events we aim to create a Tumblr community centered around the DHBC’s activities and principals.
Through reblogging posts of our members, such as photographs of retail outlets we also hope to be able to shine a spotlight on the great things local businesses are up to.
Finally, through posting and reblogging conversations centered around urban development and related stories we aim to spread the DHBC brand beyond the penisula, spreading our thoughts on key issues across the web.
We hope that you enjoy exploring what we’ve put together for the DHBC. If you’re interested in viewing our full communication plan, it’s available here. If you have any questions feel free to ask either through the Tumblr ask box or via the forum and blog.
