Friends, my time with WordPress has been a very positive experience. There are a lot of people doing creative and original things there. A lot of full featured posts with in-depth writing and sharing of ideas and experiences. Thanks to all who are following me here, I appreciate each of you.
What I have discovered is that as a social platform its not the greatest, well Tumblr has its shortcomings too but that’s beside the point. This is a platform for all ages but its a place where you will find a more mature audience.
The site gives you loads of customizing options along with lots of ways to connect with others across the web. At its heart its a content management system where you control what you want to post. One can cross-post to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
It is not as easy as Tumblr so you have to do some homework and lots of experimenting to make things work the way you want.
It has a dashboard like feature where you can read blogs you are following and it has a built in commentary system. You can’t do anything anonymously there which is something I like very much. They put a lot into keeping spam to a minimum.
As I discover more, I will share with you what I find. I will admit I like it a lot and I need to figure out how to use both sites to expand my social reach and to be more engaged with fellow bloggers.
I advise to go ahead and claim the name you want there. If things go south quick with Tumblr you want to be ready to pick up your posting elsewhere. Hopefully your followers will migrate with you.
