Defecting from Blogger to Tumblr

I'm going to make a trial run with Tumblr and look at possibly doing away with my Blogger blog.  Why?  Have you ever tried to post things through blogger?  Every time I mess with text, like the short stories I have written, formatting is a nightmare.  I can't tell you how many time I have had to cut all the text, paste it into Word and remove the formatting so I could put it back in.  Then there is posting photos and video.  Sure you can do it, but it isn't very user friendly.  So far Tumblr seems quick and easy and can keep up with me.  Which brings me to my last reason - I have an OCD -level habit of posting multiple crap, things that I find to be funny or interesting, all at once within minutes of each other on Facebook.  I'm sure that many of my friends have found that annoying and hid or deleted me long ago.  Now I can put all that crap on my blog and only those who are interested will check it out.

If you are one of those folks, here is the link below.  I plan on trying it out for a few weeks.

  1. So tumblr is like the solution between a full blog and a twitter account, right?

    I'll hop over and see what you've got going on. :)
