I may have been wrong about Tumblr…

Tumblr David Karp is no doubt breathing a huge sigh of relief as I’m officially announcing today I was may have been wrong about Tumblr…

Back in 2009, I was on the right track. I was very into Tumblr and the cool stuff they were doing but along came a bso [a ‘bright shiny object’] in the form of Posterous. I spent a very happy year with Posterous over the course of a 2.5 year period [don’t miss what I just said!]. Recently, I’ve been looking into Tumblr again and wondering why I ever left!

Recent experimentation with Tumblr has left me very impressed — in fact, I think Tumblr is the perfect curation tool for much of the work I do. While I’m still researching Tumblr’s Search Engine Optimization [SEO] benefits, I’m giving an early thumbs up to Tumblr as part of my blogging workflow. Again…

    1. I have been flirting with Tumblr lately but WordPress does a much better job of Search Engine Optimization [SEO] in my research although the Tumblr bookmarklet is better for curating than Press This for WordPress.com. I use ifttt.com to move posts from Tumblr to WordPress.com automatically…
