Recently I embarked on a new revision of my tumblr theme. This one has more specific css geared towards individual pages.
However I discovered that tumblr has been injecting ~1.5mbs of crap scripts. Yeah that’s right - and you have no control over it. Not only that but I have been using the tumblr dashboard since the last three years and there has been no change it the developer tools, or theme tags.
Yessir we’re all using the same tools to develop and design tumblr themes since pre 2014. This sucks.
And so the executive decision has been made. I am moving my blog away from tumblr and on to wordpress.
There are couple of good reasons for this:
- More control over the website
- Excellent SEO tools and plugins from the wp community
- No more crap scripts and shit getting in the way
- More control over how content is served
- And much more..
Having said that I’ll miss tumblr’s dashboard.
