Is this site powered by Tumblr? No.
I get asked this question quite often, my site is not powered by Tumblr, it never has been and probably never will be. Don’t get me wrong, I like Tumblr and I love the idea behind it, but it is, as they say, more like a scrapbook.
I am a Textpattern user through-and-through, I use it everywhere and I have been using it here since ’04.
A couple of reasons why I am not using Tumblr? I like comments, I would prefer not to use a third party website to update my site, I can’t import previous articles, I can have unlimited categories here and not be limited with the few that are available with the Tumblr service. To name a few.
I’m sure someone will retort with a whole bunch of great reasons to why I should be using Tumblr but I just don’t think its right for my site. I prefer the flexibility and security of running everything within Textpattern and the ability to change and customise my sites every need.
