The internet has changed the way we do a lot of things. We can now watch the news online or even read our local newspaper. In the past, if we wanted to write our thoughts down, we would do it in a journal or even in a diary. However, the internet has changed that as well. There are now online journaling websites that allow users to create accounts and write their thoughts to be shared with the world. These sites are called blogs and there are tons of blogging websites out there. Two of the most popular include Tumblr and Live Journal. If you are someone who is thinking about starting a blog, you may find yourself wanting to know a bit more about each site so you can determine which one is the best for you. Here is the inside scoop.
Tumblr: You Need to Know…
Tumblr is one of the best blogging sites that there is. Tumblr is easy to use and there are millions of people posting each and every day. If there is something you want to read about, you can read about it on Tumblr. The great thing about Tumblr is that your account is totally free. You heard that correctly. There is nothing for you to have to pay for. You create an account and choose your own URL. Once you do this, you can choose a theme for your Tumblr and make your first post. You have the choice of posting a text post, a photo post, an audio post, a video post or even a quote. You can also post links on your Tumblr. There is really nothing that you can’t post, so post away. Another great thing about Tumblr is that you can search for tags and you can reblog something that someone else posted if you liked it. How cool is that?
Live Journal: The Inside Scoop
Live Journal is another popular blogging website but it does not have as many users as Tumblr. While it has been around a bit longer, Live Journal is a bit simpler than Tumblr and is aimed towards more blogging and an older crowd. If you are someone who wants to post mainly text entries, Live Journal would be the better option for you.
Now that you have an idea about what Tumblr is and what it is about when it is compared to Live Journal, you should be able to make the decision as to which is the right blogging site for you. If you are still not sure, make an account on both sites and try both out to see which you like better. Both sites are great and offer different features. What is right for you may not be right for someone else. Check out Tumblr and Live Journal and see which appeals more to you so you can get started with your new blog!
