Blogger, Wordpress, and tumblr comparison

I’ve started a Photo Blog over at tumblr. Now I have blog’s on Blogger, Wordpress, and tumblr.
My impressions of these 3 free blogging sites so far are;

Wordpress
This seems to is the most flexible of the lot, but the popups on images are very annoying.

tumblr.
Incredibly easy to setup an use, I would happily recommend this to a first time blogger. Although the setup wizard tries to push you into using a paid premium template, you can get around it if the read the page properly. So far I am very impressed with it.

Blogger
I’m sorry to say Blogger is the most uncomfortable to use, and does not seem very flexible. I kind of regret setting it up as my primary blog, but you have to learn somehow.

Update
Blogger seem to be improving their systems, I used the new template tool and it was much better.
Well-done!

Let me know what you use and how happy you are with it.

  2. I use Blogspot aswell as Tumblr to get some extra link juice. The new Blogspot system seems very nice, I'm really pleased with it! I think the only thing Blogspot is missing now is an API where developers are able to more easily develop plugins for it; just like WP. Interesting article Carl, thanks for the read!
