Beyoncé Knowles’ Tumblr, www.beyonce.tumblr.com , just went live, and it’s prefaced with a sweet, handwritten note that reaches out to the Social Web: “This is my life, today, over the years — through my eyes. My family, my travels, my love. This is where I share with you. This will continue to grow as I do,” says the singer-actress before adding her autograph. The same day, Knowles sent off her first tweet to give news of the completed revamp of her official Web site, Beyonce.com. She’s had a Twitter account for years, but had never actually posted anything.
Beyoncé’s younger sister Solange, on the other hand, was an early Twitter star. She continues to tweet and is an avid poster of family pictures on her own blog, so it’s not really a stretch to say that kid-sis Solange may be having a marked influence on her supremely famous older sibling. And that makes sense because the first two pictures on the Tumblr blog show Solange and Beyoncé together.
Despite her fierceness on stage, Beyoncé is known for being intensely reticent about her private life. It even took what seemed like forever to even refer to Jay-Z as her husband in public, even though everyone knew the super duo had tied the knot. Earlier this year Beyoncé also choose Tumblr to release photos of her three-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
