I’ve been thinking a lot about blogging again. I know I said this before but I really do miss it. The last couple of days I’ve been looking at the types of things that I want to blog about and different blogging platforms. One thing I was certain about is that I never wanted to go back to a self-hosted blog.
My previous blog was running on Octopress and hosted in an S3 bucket. That was a perfect setup. No need to worry about being hacked or keeping the server and blogging software up to date and the cost… well… peanuts. But Octopress didn’t give me enough freedom. I wanted to blog on my phone/tablet. I wanted to quickly be able to share something without having to think about it too much. After looking at Wordpress (the .com version), Ghost, and many other smaller platforms I finally decided on Tumblr (yes… Tumblr).
Tumblr gives me everything I was looking for. And so here we are… Welcome to blog version oh I don’t remember and it doesn’t really matter anyway. I’ll probably archive my old blog somewhere but this is now my blogging home. A place to blog about things that inspire me. A cool video, an amazing photo, a project on Behance, stuff I’ve been playing around with, … I hope (and think) Tumblr will remove all the previously existing barriers and make me blog again on a regular basis.
I still have some tweaking to do but for now… welcome to my new home :)
