Eight months ago, I made the switch to WordPress. I couldn’t bear it anymore. And honestly I was bracing myself for a possible shutdown of the service by Verizon given their lack of interest or understanding of Tumblr.
WordPress has been great. It’s a rock solid platform and I control my little part of the web over here.
But I miss the Tumblr. I miss the simplicity and elegance. I miss the ease of adding multiple photographs to a single post. Or finding great music. But mostly, I miss the community.
Last week, something very exciting happened to the world of Tumblr. The company behind WordPress acquired Tumblr.
As I wrote on Twitter the day the news broke, I am really happy about this news and hopeful about the future of Tumblr.
I am so happy Tumblr has at last returned to a company and team that genuinely cares about the open internet & creative community

Perhaps I will switch back soon.
Love you Tumblr.
