I had been trying to figure out whether to use Tumblr or Posterous for my personal and company blogs. Tumblr is slow and doesn’t have built-in support for comments (wtf?). Posterous is good, but somehow seems too pushy. Also, Garry just quit recently, so that creates some doubt in my mind as to its future.
Not happy with either of them, I decided to revisit WordPress. Wow, this is really good! It’s snappy (especially relative to Tumblr), and straightforward to use.
