I liked the community aspect of LiveJournal, but everybody seems to have moved away. I like the style of Tumblr, but long text posts don’t feel like they belong there. Finally, if I’m serious about maintaining my nerd cred, I ought to be hosting my own weblog.
I plan to categorize posts, so that my comedian friends don’t need to suffer through rants about memory management in Objective-C and my programmer friends don’t need to suffer through ramblings about improv comedy. Instead, suffering will be targeted to your particular demographic.
I expect to spend a lot of time being unhappy with Wordpress Themes.
