Wordpress and Tumblr have given me too many problems over the years to want to continue using either of them. Wordpress takes up too much time in maintenance, and Tumblr produces horrible SEO results. So, I've taken matters into my own hands. My blog (along with my personal website) will be a static HTML website using a Bootstrap template that I've customized. Overall, the entire blog will run smoother, I'll be in total control and there's no surprise upgrades or updates needed every single time I 'login'.
I'll continue to auto-publish my social media activity to Tumblr using IFTTT. I've always considered my Tumblr to be sort of a 'hub' of my activity, where I can always refer back to a link that I shared, a liked Tweet, or something I favorited on Soundcloud. My blog will be semi-long to long reads on any number of topics I find interesting. I have no idea where I'm going with this, but you gotta start somewhere.
I use Brackets as my editor.
