Even though I wasn't really a fan, Wordpress was really the only viable option. I can get it up and running in no time. Has pretty good themes / templates for free. And being able to migrate away from tumblr was a requirement then, I mean like moving all of the contents, use the same permalink, and just point the subdomain to this server instead of tumblr's. It has to do all of those, or none of it and keep the tumblr as the archive. After seeing Bludit, I opted for the latter. No regret so far. Much restrictions, such fun.
I haven’t been writing much, but I’ll get into why another time. But part of the reason is that I’ve stop opening up tumblr, I’ve planned to migrate away from it for awhile now. Wordpress was the top candidate, but I still have mixed feelings I’ve had before.
And then I can across htmly, which is a flat file CMS. Sounds brilliant. Then I look further into these flat file CMSs, in theory they seems to be perfect replacement for tumblr. I loved tumblr for what it was, a dead simple blogging platform that allows custom domain for free. But they seems to have this twitter / facebook envy, and trying hard to be a social network. So,… goodbye tumblr.
This is the only post that’s crossposted. I’m not migrating anything over. The old tumblr links will work as long as tumblr allows free custom domain, and not suspend my account for being inactive.
