So I made a thing called Cerulean Radio. It’s tumblr blog based radio. Once you select a blog, it will automatically randomize and play the audio posts from that user.
You can enter a tumblr blog name or you can randomize from the list of stations that have been played by others.
http://emergentpattern.tumblr.com would be http://www.ceruleanradio.com/radio/emergentpattern
The site should work on all platforms so you can use it on your phone, tablet or desktop.
If there’s any improvements I can make, let me know and I’ll take a look at implementing it.
Thanks to those that tried out the proof of concept I had and providing feedback. I hope this turns out to be something useful.
I’m humbled by the responses to the site! I’m glad you guys like this. I’m looking to make some speed improvements over the next few days so the stations load faster. Most of the time is spent trying to get information from the Tumblr API so I have to look for speed improvements there so I’m going to start caching the song information.
Here’s what I saw in the last 12 hours:
- Total Page Views: 1,125
- Unique Tumblr ‘Stations’ Viewed: 74
- Tracks Played: 591
- Avg. Time on Station: 8m 4s
- Avg. Page Load Wait Time: 1.452 seconds
- Longest Page Load Wait Time: 6.188 seconds (this is going to be fixed)
- Views from the US, Canada, UK, and Singapore
Thank you guys again for the reblogs, comments, and feedback. I’ll keep working on making this better as long as people keep enjoying it.
