Of late I am sure you’ve noticed that I have been putting together my content on my old WordPress.org blog. After a good 1 year on Tumblr I just feel that WordPress is more of what I am looking for. It just gives me more functionality and I won’t be loosing anything by converting back to WordPress because it links in nicely with Tumblr. All my content will be still going to Tumblr just in link form. I wouldn’t have made the switch if that wasn’t the case because I enjoy the community that it has and the audience that I have gained from it.
Will I be using WordPress.com when my hosting runs out for this current blog? No because once you cost out all the features I would need it becomes more expensive with less freedom. Has Tumblr really lost out to word press in my opinion? No I just want the freedom to configure my site and now that the Jetpack in WordPress allows you to automatically send the posts to Tumblr. I am now getting the best of both worlds.
I would recommend Tumblr hands down if you’re a new start-up and don’t want to spend the money for your blog because it will already have an audience for you, you just have to do the tags right. This post hasn’t gone the direction I wanted to however perhaps it will give you a good idea of why a switched and my thought process.
