How is "light blogging" different from regular blogging? Just that the posts are shorter?

What do we mean by 'light blogging'? It used to be called "micro-blogging," although that term is as much applied to Twitter as to Tumblr. Twitter is limited to 140 characters and is more of a communications tool than a publishing one. In comparison Tumblr (and Posterous et al) are publishing services. The key point is that you can publish 'found' things very quickly and at the click of a button. You can easily share content and media with these services.
