Tumblr and Yahoo…Just in Case


Friends, we have seen the dance when a small startup like Tumblr gets a bunch of cash flashed in front of it. Usually it means that a company like Yahoo will acquire the startup. If in case it happens and later on Tumblr changes beyond recognition what do you do?

There are a couple of platforms to migrate to. Blogger and WordPress offer the best option for social blogging. Otherwise you have to use sites like Weebly and Wix which offer no social options but you can post links to your posts on Twitter and Facebook. 

Yes its too early to see what will happen but its always good to think about what to do if things go badly. You can never be too prepared. Now is a time to keep an eye on the news feeds to see what will happen. Don’t be caught flat footed.
