Just over two months have passed since I last posted on this site. Why? Well, it was pretty simple. I am always one to try out new things and use my playground to enjoy all of the technology in front of me. Two months ago, I found myself in a quandary I had less and less time to spend on the blog yet I was still attempting to stay active. I enjoy using Instagram and seeing as how they are using Tumblr as a destination for their sharing, I decide to give Tumblr a whirl to see which platform I like better. Here is what I came up with.
Mobility in Posting
I am part of the statistics that say that smartphones are dominating the market and how we interact and share online. Spend enough time around me and you’ll hear me talk about it in various ways because I believe that a company that isn’t investing in the mobile experience, they are handing over their customers to the competition.
Being on the go, mobility has been huge for me to post and share thoughts, inspirations and images. I have been one lately to share quick items and not spend a great deal of time pouring into writing out my thoughts. This has made mobility a big part of my process. Although, the downside is doing a long form post such as this. I wouldn’t attempt to do so on my iPhone or iPad. Both Tumblr and WordPress have mobile apps that you can post with but I personally prefer the use of Tumblr in those situations.
While Tumblr allows me to have quick access to posting from a mobile device or a desktop, you are considerably more limited in the control of your post. This is where using WordPress stands out for me. I enjoy the ability to customize the post in every way that I need to. I can add in multiple videos or photos while with Tumblr, you are more limited in how this lays out.
In the End
At the end of the day, I found that I will end up with two sites bryanwillmert.com (WordPress) and bryanwillmert.me (Tumblr) and each will have their own focus. I know this isn’t a complete breakdown of what these sites offer but it is a quick glimpse of my journey through the exploration through both platforms.
Enjoy and happy posting!
