Anyone else using Tumblr? (If so, please follow me at Leigh Michaels and you’ll get a follow-back out of it.)
I like the platform and layout; it’s different and gives the opportunity to just do quick blog “blurbs.” However, I do think it’s more suited for those types of posts, and not so much for long essay-type blog posts.
I’m not sure how I feel about the “community” of Tumblr. In fact, as compared to WP, I would actually say “lack of community.” My first day here at WP, I had several followers; and they just kept trickling in. I picked up quickly on the fact that if you follow other blogs, they are very likely to follow you (and that if other blogs follow you, there’s a certain level of quid pro quo sort of expected). And I like it that way.
Tumblr does not seem to work that way. In fact, I’m left thinking, “How on earth are you supposed to get people to follow you here, anyway?”
Anyone else feel that way about it?
