Tumblr + Silo = Poorman’s SweetCron
Many of you are probably already familiar with the new Lifestream blogging platform SweetCron. Well if you were captured by it’s visual style but didn’t want to pay for hosting, or deal with the technical aspects of setting it up, you’re in luck.
Tumblr is a popular free service that many people use for hosting LIfestreams. It’s big on design and allows for extensive customization of themes used to display your content. One of the already included themes that you can use is called Silo which was created by Paul Giacherio. It’s a beautiful theme that is very similar in appearance to the default Boxy theme used in SweetCron.
This should offer a quick, easy and free solution for those of you that are intrigued by SweetCron. You can view Paul’s Tumblr page to see it in action here.
