About the site
The idea for this site started in 2013, when a friend was trying to go back and retag her old Tumblr posts. Without a way to easily see all her untagged posts, it was impossible for her to be sure that she was done. I wrote her a Python script to get the job done, and that was that.
In 2014, I was getting a lot of hits to that script, but a Python script isn’t very user friendly. I wrote this site to be an easier way to get a list of your untagged posts, because clearly it was something people wanted.
Hi, I’m Alex! I’d include a picture, but I’m photo shy.
I’m a software developer. In my day job, I work on Project Calico for Metaswitch Networks. By night, I blog about programming – among other things – at alexwlchan.net (although the posting schedule is quite sporadic). My blog includes scripts like this one – small things that I find useful or interesting.
Shockingly, for somebody who makes a site about Tumblr, I spend a lot of free time on Tumblr. Look for alexwlchan, but don’t expect much in the way of posts – I’m more of a lurker.
