Tumblr and WordPress

Standard

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.

Being Original

Standard

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.

Servant Leader

Standard

I think to be a great leader you must serve. I consider myself a servant first and a leader second. You have to set an example of service in order to inspire the work of others. You can’t just tell people what to do you have to show them how to do it. While you serve you can also train others to do good works. A good leader will work hard for their people to create opportunities for those they…

Standard

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.

Time Does March On

Standard

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.

Hello Wednesday!

Standard

My college roommate said on Facebook that its a double whammy today…its tax day and its raining here in east Tennessee. Well not every day can be sunshine, puppies and happiness, although it would be great if it were. Today I am at work, doing good things for myself and for others so I guess there is a silver lining behind the rain clouds. Let us all have the best day possible given the…

WordPress Report, Yeah I Like

Standard

Friends, my time with WordPress has been a 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.

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.
