So I find myself back on Tumblr. It’s been three years or so since I last seriously made use of this, but I find myself drawn back now in an effort for force myself to regularly write longform again.
I could also get into a wonderfully circular debate over owning the platform on which your writing exists. I’m quite good at that since my job is to sell my services as a web developer. While the argument absolutely makes sense for a business, for me personally it’s another excuse to go fuss around in Drupal or learn Jekyll or whatever else.
Granted, I’m using Tumblr now partly because it occurred to me I could use it to get into the habit of writing in Markdown, so perhaps I can’t quite escape myself.
