A great WordPress.com site

the big switch.

As you may have noticed, I switched from Tumblr to WordPress. Tumblr has a wonderful community and there’s a lot of  blogs there that maintain my sanity  (::cough::CampaignSick::cough::). Yet, there were two things that always bothered me. I’ve always felt that I was limited when it came to blog design. There was always a risk of choosing a blog theme that was exactly the same as others which defeats the idea of writing a journal. I hated that I was so limited with customizing blog themes because I could never find a theme that truly represented me. 

Unlike Blogger or WordPress, Tumblr’s blogs do not have a native comment system. If you would like comments on your blog, you need to find a blog theme that allowed Disqus comments, which severely limited your theme choices. It was a pain trying to figure out which theme I could live with so I’d be able to have readers, who weren’t Tumblr users, interact with me. 

It was hard to leave because a lot of my friends use Tumblr but ever since I’ve moved to WordPress, I’ve been pleased. The theme layouts are clean, organized, and so easy to customize. 

I guess this must be the place.
