I have remapped my blog and shifted my personal publishing platform from WordPress.com to Tumblr.
While this is simply a small structural note, it also represents a shift in my thinking about my presence on and relationship to the social web. While I enjoy building and playing with web infrastructure of all kinds (usually far more weird and complicated), I have a present need to focus my time and content.
I’m a big fan of the WordPress.com and .org projects, and still rely on Automattic products for much of KoPoint’s distribution infrastructure.
Like many, however, my pure ‘blog’ content is few and far between. Tumblr, however rickety the platform may sometimes seem, presents a number of benefits. The Tumblr platform functions both as a content creation and distribution platform. Tumblr followers are loyal, smart, and gregarious.
I will always retain an archive hosted on WordPress, and may some day switch back. But for now, future blog posts and primary status updates will be available on this site: http://blog.danpatterson.com (or: danpatterson.tumblr.com).
