So I moved from Tumblr to Ghost. Tumblr (the platform, not the community) is absolute garbage. I actually like the community: tons of fandoms, great art, weird memes, and so many old memories. The problem with Tumblr is that the theme editing is absolute garbage. There's no real offline editing, they rewrite all your links, they inject tons of heavy scripts into the page load (upwards of 3+ seconds initial plus more async garbage), etc, etc.
I moved over just 6 posts as it's not easy picking apart their markup to actually put into a new blog. I also ported my theme and I have to say, being able to use
Grunt, watch, livereload, and a local copy of Ghost has to be the best workflow I could ever want. If the desire so strikes me I might end up going back and reposting stuff but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
It's good to be back, more or less. Hope to post some cool stuff.Read More »
