WordPress vs. Tumblr

Tumblr is a new blogging platform which focuses on simple, quick blogging called tumblelogs. A tumblelog is a blog of very short posts, maybe just a photo, link or quote; a slightly richer form of Twitter.

The Tumblr service has an elegant design focusing on simplicity. I was impressed with it and for a few days switched my mkaz.com blog over. However, after just a few posts I found the simplicity a little stifling and I wanted to be able to do a few other things, such as align photos, use categories and an organized archive.

So I switched back to WordPress, I updated to 2.5.1 and using a new theme. It really is the best platform, providing the most flexibility, especially if you know a little PHP.
