How to choose a blogging platform

  1. 1. Comparing Tumblr, WordPress, and Squarespace How to choose a blogging platform
  2. 2. Objective Choosing a website platform can be a difficult decision. There are dozens of platforms out there to choose from serving different needs and wants. The key to choosing a platform is based on your needs, wants, and future goals of your site. So ask yourself, what do you need in a website? Are you a creative looking to show your portfolio? Are you looking to establish an online store b.k.a E-commerce? Are you looking to present your resume for potential clients? To make things a little easier, I made a list of 3 platforms: Tumblr, WordPress, and Square Space giving quick pros and cons.
  3. 3. Tumblr Tumblr is one of the older kids on the block but still a huge force on the internets. For creatives and business folks alike, Tumblr keeps things simple and straight to point. It hosts over 290 million blogs so you won’t be alone and about 555 million monthly visitors.
  4. 4. Tumblr Pros  1. Free.99. Tumblr is free and easy to set up. Take about 5 minutes from your busy day and you can have your own account. It also makes it easy to port over your domain if you’re not interested in the ‘.tumblr.com’ domain listing.  2. Tumblr is very social. You can follow other Tumblr blogs, reblog (similar to a retweet or share), and this is a great way to amplify your reach.  3. Tumblr is home for the creatives. Designers, photographers, film makers, story tellers, and more utilize Tumblr as their online showcase. Also, Gifs and Memes made their mark on the internets but started their rise to popularity from Tumblr.
  5. 5. Tumblr Cons  1. Lack of customize features. Tumblr lacks plugins which allows you to add little tweaks and knick knacks that set your site apart. Now, for you coders, you can pop the hood and dig into engine code.  2. No E-commerce capabilities. There are any features that allow on-site purchasing.
  6. 6. Wordpress  WordPress is the internet’s most popular platform with over 60 million websites using the service. Though the platform is over a decade old, it’s had time to grow, mature and update with the internet. WordPress serves as a one stop shop for all website needs and wants. For the creatives and e-commerce, WordPress can be the right choice for you.
  7. 7. WordPress Pros  1. You can make a simple straight forward site or customize it to an elaborate themed experience.  2. You can transfer your domain if you don’t want the ‘example.wordpress.com’.  3. There’s a huge range of plugins that can turn your site to a E-commerce powerhouse or fit the needs of your goals.
  8. 8. WordPress Cons  1. WordPress can be a bit overwhelming with so many options available at your fingertips.  2. It takes time to get familiar with WordPress. The more time you spend with WordPress, the better you’ll get with it.  3. You have to learn some HTML to build the customized features that you want.
  9. 9. SquareSpace  One of the newer kids on the block, Squarespace sets itself apart as a website slick builder. I’m pretty sure if you listen to podcast, you’ve heard advertisement for them. Squarespace is globally available in over 190 countries and streamlines the process of establishing your website.
  10. 10. SquareSpace Pros:  1. The setup is extremely easy.  2. Your site will look good on desktop and mobile screens all the same.  3. Squarespace gives a wonderful range of templates that are sleek, sophisticated, and clean.
  11. 11. SquareSpace Cons:  It requires a monthly subscription: free, premium, enterprise starting at $8  The menu options are very lack luster and simple. For more complex sites, you menu will be limited.
  12. 12. Summary Review the list and do some research on your own. Find some of your favorite sites and make notes of the features, what sets them apart, and more. Now cross reference what you want for your own site and determine which platform will best serve your needs. Visit deshawnpeterson.com for more updates and services related to small business.
