So, I did a little test not too long ago where I wanted to see how well would my blog posts would do on Tumblr compared to WordPress since Tumblr has a lot of communities which I thought would do well there, and the results were not too shocking.
So my goal was to upload things to Tumblr and then WordPress after to see how would they do, and from what I have seen, WordPress has done a bit better than I thought. I made some blog posts for Tumblr to see how well they would do and show up but the results were poor.
Tumblr from what I would see would peak at 2 to rarely 6 views then flame out. A lot of the people I thought were there in the Tumblr communities are buried under so many posts and my understanding so far is that I am hard to find unless I have a presence and maybe I can get found.
It seems on WordPress, I have somewhat of a presence here. It is not a large one but big enough for me to get found by other viewers, bloggers, and users outside of WordPress. And I will continue to upload here. I did have a feeling that I would not get the result that I wanted.
Going forward I will keep that blog around on Tumblr in case something happens or my blog gets wiped out but I think I am fine. I am a little sad that my blog posts didn’t do well as I hoped on Tumblr but this was a good wake-up call for me.
So I now know for future reference that Tumblr would be a good backup blog at the very least. I wanted to share my experience with you and I guess the results I saw.
