I post shorter, more light-hearted things on tumblr than I do on WordPress. On WordPress, I feel free to go long. When I go long, I guess the dark stuff comes out (however one defines ‘dark’).
The result of this seems to be differing degrees of interaction. I haven’t made a whole lot of connections on WordPress. I just can’t get into the lighter-hearted, goofy long posts that I’ve seen (there’s nothing wrong with that stuff–it’s better, in fact). It’s just not my taste I guess, not my scope. On WordPress, I go long and I go dark – but I don’t always stay dark. I often bring it full circle to some kind of resolution. I try to anyway. WordPress is my spot to type away when I’m feeling some kind of strong inspiration from some event or feeling that has provoked a lot of mental activity.
On tumblr, within the first month, I had connected with more people than I had in two years plus on WordPress.
On tumblr, I trade in visuals a lot. That constitutes the majority of my posting. When I do write a text post, I keep it short. I have a lot of practice economizing words after being on Twitter for so long (since December 2007).
I don’t know what else to say. I think I will keep doing it this way. I’ll save the long, deep rants for WordPress, and my day-to-day good news and art views – tumblr. –whoCares
