for years, I used tumblr as both my personal and professional blog. I now believe that this is not quite what tumblr was designed for. It’s more of a long-form twitter with better retweeting.
So, because of that and because I felt it was about time I set up a professional presence on the internet, I once again have a blog that I run on my own server. I have mifgrated what I consider my best articles from this tumblr. Not all comments made the transition, because disqus doesn’t work as well as advertised.
Seeing today’s announcement that tumblr is going to be a part of the Yahoo family, and my past experience with transitions like that (Hello, Flickr!), this was an almost prescient move.
