Why I chose WordPress.

Why I chose WordPress

I’ve been running an experiment, sharing the same posts between a Tumblr account and this WordPress account. I wanted to see which I preferred. I have used both for many years, and Tumblr is definitely the “cool” kid right now, but WordPress has a lot of options and a rich community. I figured it was a valid experiment. My results: after trying this experiment I decided to stick with WordPress.

To me Tumblr is a spot for curation. WordPress is for conversation. There’s a big difference between those two things and when it comes to a blog on writing, I prefer the latter. I had no idea what it took to get published, I’m not formally trained, I never took college writing classes. I am learning as I go, and posting as I learn. I have already gained a lot from the conversations I’ve already had and that’s why I am sticking around.
