So, I moved back to Wordpress.  I’ve been with Tumblr for a couple years now.  It was pretty good overall, but I recently came to the conclusion that one of the reasons I don’t blog more is because of how much I hate the writing experience on Tumblr.  When composing a post, it supplies you a tiny textarea for which to write.  It’s almost as if it’s encouraging you to writer shorter posts, which I assume is the case.  The problem is, I want a blog, not a microblogging platform.  I have Twitter for that.  Or, I can use Wordpress if I desire.

Wordpress doesn’t come without it’s own issues.  I’m very well aware of them and they are pretty frustrating.  The codebase itself is a disaster, being written in php4, and a highly functional codebase.  I do prefer some OO goodness.  Nonetheless, I’m making the jump back.

I want better control over my urls, assets, features and functionality as well as customization.  Tumblr, naturally, didn’t offer much of this.  I do think Tumblr is a nice blogging platform for the average Joe.  I just don’t fit the category.  So, back on Wordpress for a while.
