The Tumblr Experiment

So, I tried out Tumblr, and I don’t think I’ll continue blogging there regularly. Why?

1. I’m a creature of habit, and I’m used to WordPress. But, at the same time, I always want to try new things. There were certain perks with Tumblr, it has cool designs and it’s simple to get started. But, when I want to add widgets and customize it, it took longer than I expected, and I’m still not satisfied with the way it looks.

2. While, I’m drawn to the “f*ck yeah” blogs, because well, it is geared to my obsessions in the world of pop culture. It’s not enough to keep me blogging there on a regular basis. I haven’t found the added benefit, besides the community feeling aspect. Everything I do on Tumblr, I can do on WordPress as well, and the added perk of WordPress, I can categorize my different interests. If you can do that with Tumblr, I couldn’t figure it out.

So, my friends, I will end the Tumblr experiment, and resume my blogging on WordPress. I wanted to see if it would make things easier having different blogs for different interests, but it seemed to be more of a hassle than it was worth. Considering my blog is more of hobby, and a way to express my thoughts and ideas with like minded people. I generally blog about three things, just like I tweet about three things, so if you know me by now, you’ve figured out those three things. If not, here’s the gist of what are my topics of interest:

1. Libraries/Librarians

2. Baseball (NY Mets-centered)

3.Pop Culture (geeky at times, but not always: politics/media creep up often)
