A short time ago I had reviewed different social media options to decide which route would work best for me. While some of my beliefs still hold, I have to admit that some of my opinions have changed!
Though moving the site from Nucleus CMS to WordPress was a laborious process, I am thoroughly pleased with the result. The ease with which I can make new posts means that I can concentrate on content instead of repeatedly mucking about with CSS or HTML. I shifted the Ormes Society site from Nucleus CMS to Tumblr due to the constant hassles involved with displaying image-heavy posts. However, Tumblr has shown to have its own set of problems.
I adore Tumblr in regards to personal use. It has actually toppled Twitter to reign as my favorite social media platform. I’ve likened Twitter to being at a boisterous cocktail party. You can take part in the wider festivities or move into smaller social circles and have a conversation with two or three individuals. Tumblr is akin to watching television with a large group of friends. Like Twitter, the option for intimate conversation is available. However, there is also added visual content! Yes, images can be displayed on Twitter’s website, but the service wasn’t built for it and it shows.
And yet Tumblr’s haphazard handling of images is an issue as well. Though Tumblr provides the Ormes Society with the visibility I was seeking, images often end up distorted, resulting in one not seeing the true beauty of an artist’s work. It’s frustrating. For now, the Ormes Society will stay put, but I am certainly exploring other options.
