While I have been blogging primarily at my Tumblr for a while now, I wanted a richer experience that I could exert more control over, so I switched up to WordPress. I think this platform allows me to offer a more text- and idea-based blogging platform than my Tumblr does. The rationale was essentially this: I don’t want to rebrand my Tumblog; I want it to be the wicked depository of awesome that it’s been since its inception until time stops and we all turn to dust (or, like, a year from now). I did, however, want a place that I could write critically and seriously about things in the spirit of the kinds of posts, on my Tumblog, that were a little more serious and thoughtful than the rest.
I don’t know if anything I write will ever be referred to as trenchant, but, as anyone who’s ever met me knows, I like to talk, and I can do it at a high rate of speed. That happens with my typing as well.
