I want to start a new blog, but I’m not sure which platform is best for me. Obviously WordPress is the most popular, and there are many more common choices, but I’m not sure what will fit my needs the best.
Tumblr - Post anything (from anywhere!), customize everything, and find and follow what you love.
The service allows users to post multimedia and other content to a short-form blog. Users can follow other users' blogs, as well as make their blogs private. Much of the website's features are accessed from the "dashboard" interface, where the option to post content and posts of followed blogs appear. Follow @Tumblr on Twitter or You can also create your own Tumblr now.
This widget allows you to display related posts you have written within your tumblr site theme. It makes relational posts a snap to use and encourages your users to read more and stay longer!
Most WordPress users stick to the default commenting system, because it’s very easy to operate, both for the administrators and the commenters. However, Google’s policy update about rel=”nofollow” links has made it look very poor from an SEO perspective when you’re using a non-modified version of the default WordPress commenting system on your blog. The commenters’ website links, though nofollow’ed, tend to waste a majority of PageRank points of the pages of your WordPress site. This is more troublesome for active blogs that get thousands of comments on each of their posts. The more number of comments with links to the users-websites appear on post pages, the more amount of PageRank point gets wasted, resulting in poor PageRank flow between internal pages.
