For the past couple of weeks I have been blogging on both Tumblr and WordPress. My reasons for doing so is to have a redundant solution for blogging. In the light of the changes happening with Yahoo’s intentions for Tumblr I feel that using both would be a smart thing. WordPress seems to be a stable, suitable blogging community that anyone could migrate to and maintain relationships with fellow bloggers from across the world.
My advice for what its worth is for every person on Tumblr to have a alternative ready to migrate to. There are fewer options these days unfortunately so making a decision is a personal one. Many folks who like to create original posts would find WordPress a great place. However those who do mostly reblogging of fandom stuff will find it harder to migrate. You can import your Tumblr blog to WordPress very easily.
So my friends know I am not going anywhere. There are a lot of people I have made great friendly connections with here on Tumblr and I don’t want to lose any of you. Thanks for your friendship and common bond.
I believe in being the star of my own blog. Being creative is fun and being original is freedom. We need new voices and views of the world. My blog is a outlet for my thoughts and outlook. I can make connections too with people who are of like mind. We need more personal blogs where we can be ourselves.
I am a middle-aged dork and it always amazes me when I get younger followers. Many of them are like half my age. I am not all that cool y’all. Sometimes my efforts to be relevant come across as being silly or head shaking. Maybe people like genuine people no matter what time of life they are in.
Hello good people, the new day is upon us and the birds are chirping…OK enough of that mushy stuff. It is Friday here in America and it means for many of us the weekend is here. Its amazing how fast Friday can get here sometimes but others it can’t get here fast enough. Today is payday so I am jazzed about that.
Lets finish strong and do good things today. Whatever you are doing today make it…
Yesterday can feel like last week. Last week can feel like last month, last month can feel like six months ago, a year can feel like and eternity. When it comes to time it is indeed hard to believe how fast it goes. We are never standing still, always moving, always changing. Time does march on and we are always on the move. So when you think about it we are all time travelers.
I am experimenting with WordPress the popular blogging platform. My reason for doing so is to see how it works as a social blogging system. I will share my findings with you and let you know what my experience is. Some day we might have to migrate there because Tumblr could radically be different because of Yahoo. My advice is to open a blog there and test it for yourself. Stay tuned for more information.
I wonder if social media, texting and other forms of electronic communications have impacted our writing quality? It seems like it to me because of the shorthand and abbreviations that are used. We write for short lengths and have to get our point across sooner or else we lose the attention of our audience. We are writing more for the social masses which means we sometimes forget what we learned in our writing classes. What is your experience with this?
