Moving to Tumblr
I have reached my end with Wordpress. It’s not that I hated Wordpress, it’s just become obvious it wasn’t what I needed. So, after giving it almost no thought whatsoever, I moved to Tumblr. I did this for a few reasons:
Shutting down writersmark.com and moving to markcrump.com gave me a chance to start new. While I couldn’t easily migrate the content, I also decided I didn’t really give a shit. Ninety percent of the posts were outdated. Only a few tips and tricks are relevant. I could just start over here.
I found Wordpress really didn’t handle blogging from my iPad or iPhone well at all. The native app crashed, 3rd party apps only sorta worked. Tumblr has a great iPhone app and I can email posts directly.
Finally, I tend to use the Tumblr iPhone app as a sort of mini RSS reader; it’s great to just skim through content. I’m looking forward to hooking into that network.
What I’m really doing is trying to eliminate as many barriers as possible to just get on with the writing.
