tumblr vs. wordpress

So this idea came to me earlier today but I haven’t had the energy to write it down until just now.

When I started my blogging journey I started on tumblr. I tried it out for a bit and I found out it wasn’t for me. The DDLG community there was nothing but porn, superficial pictures of random people with their stuffies, and  There was no discussions or thoughts. On top of all of this there were lots of minors following nsfw blogs and claiming to be into bdsm and that isn’t something I supported. I had no idea what I was doing and there wasnn’t a friendly community to help me out with the blogging aspect of things.

I love wordpress because I can make it my own with my own themes and categories. Also there is a open and welcoming community here and it isn’t so negative.

Thank you wordpress for becoming my new blogging home. 

What are your thoughts on tumblr?

  1. You mean people do more than post animated porn gifs and faptions on Tumblr?
    I’m joking of course, I’ve seen like one or two text posts before (sadly this part isn’t joking). Even people that stole artwork I’ve done and posted it on Tumblr without a credit or link don’t seem to care to interact.

    I honestly don’t spend a lot of time on Tumblr but there is an option in WordPress to automatically post your WP entries on Tumblr if that is of interest to you.

    I’ve blogged for 7 years on Blogger and after 1 year on WordPress I can say that the overall community vibe is a lot more welcoming here although it can feel very “busy” at times if that makes any sense.

    Take care.

    1. I do have my word press entries set to go straight to my Tumblr just so it looks like I’m actually using my Tumblr LOL other than that I don’t get on it anymore.
      Part of that might be because my ex uses Tumblr and she owes me quite a bit of money and every time I see her posts it makes me angry… But that’s another story for another day

      1. That would make things rather unpleasant. I created a Tumblr at some point but then realized (at least with the mobile app) that I can’t find anything nor is it easy to go through posts or find out when they were written.

        It feels a bit like the fast food version of blogging.

  2. I’ve been on WordPress for 11 years, after one year on Blogger. I only follow one Tumblr blog, and I find the rest to be simply regurgitating videos and pictures over and over again chasing likes. I don’t see the point. I’d rather have a few close friends on WordPress, than thousands of followers on social media.

  3. I agree with you! I used to be able to read cute stories about DDLG relationships but it’s been getting harder to find lately. So, now I have moved here!
