Tumblr, WordPress or Blogger: Which is Best for Blogging?

It's a blog battle! Millions of us blog daily about this, that, or that other thing. Some have a following, some don't. Some pretty silly stuff out there gets a ton of followers and tweeters, what gives?

Well, the platform you choose to blog on is important. It use to be Blogger and WordPress has been around awhile now. The newest is Tumblr and it has literally smoked its competition as the best blogging platform. In page views, Tumblr averages 1.5 billion, Blogger, .5 billion and WordPress, about .25 billion.

On one of Tumblr's page, entitled, What I wore by Jessica Quirk garnished 54,000 followers! She would simply post a photo of what she wore daily and she made her blog a fulltime job.

In December, Tumblr got 6.7 million visitors from the US alone, WordPress had 28 million and Blogger some 59 million. But, Tumblr wins in the page views catagory which 1.6 billion. Tumblr does this by combining blogging and social media. Tumblr has 13.4 million bloggers.

Tumblr was created by a high school dropout, David Karp, simply looking for a more simple way to blog when he was 20 yrs. old. On a daily basis, 45,000 newbies sign up and currently it is not making much revenue but did secure $30  million in investment funding from Google investor, Sequoia Capital.

hmmm ... will definitely have to give it a look see! I've gotten pretty comfortable with what wordpress can and can't do now with a couple of self hosted blogs to my name ... however the thing i've never had as much success as i'd like is getting recurring visitors so maybe tumblr is a better option?
