Checking out WordPress again

It’s been a long time since I used WordPress. I switched to Posterous for a while. When it was purchased by Twitterand then shut down, well… Time to get serious about Tumblr. I checked, apparently I have been using Tumblr for over five years now, my how the time flew by.

Ive been reasonably happy with Tumblr. It is nicely integrated with most of the tools I use, the price is right (free, sort of), and they have a nice community. But like all things the “free” aspect has to come home to roost, i.e. someone has to pay at some point and the ads are piling up while the feature velocity oils slowing down.

I plan to try WordPress for a while, see if I like it before taking the plunge… again. Last time I self-hosted, I don’t think I’ll take that on again just yet.
