Tumblogging, posting short, often multimedia, blog posts on sites like Tumblr, has been consistently growing in popularity for a couple of years now. Tumblr is the most well-known tumblog service out there,
but there are also themes that can turn your WordPress blog into a tumblog-style site. Tumblogging is a great option for those people who don’t want to post long blog posts, but do want to share images, music, videos, and other snippets of content with their followers.
There’s less pressure with a tumblog than there is with a regular blog, and it’s often viewed as a much more casual kind of presence. So the question becomes, which platform should you use? Should you sign up for Tumblr? Or should you host your own tumblog with the self-hosted version of WordPress? Or is there something else entirely you could do? Read on to find out.
