    Guys, i am just curious. Which do you like more? Blogger or Tumblr for blogging?

    I am seriously thorn between two. Tumblr is nice for the layout but Adsense is self customize. Blogger is like 'pre-loaded'.

    What do you think?

            I use a Tumblr Blog to promote my online content. I normally use it to autopost my Social Bookmarking Sites RSS feeds. I do get some views fto my content from them but Blogger brings me more traffic.

      Hi nicregi,
      I've never heard of tumblr.  Does tumblr offer an affiliate link to it's members?  If so I'll join from your referral link.  Or is it like blogger?  Simply free with no referrals.

        Hi mailxpress.

        In tumblr, there is no referral link. But, I am very thankful for what you said smile

        It is just like blogger, but it is much more simple in the sense you can post basically everything!

        You can add in adsense too but it need a little manual setting which I did it successfully smile

        Nothing much as I just joined ytd but it was fun..real fun compared to Blogger.

    I have about 20 different blogs on on blogger and 0 on Tumblr. I especially like the new features blogger has added with the easy customization of their templates. Also, blogger seems to do really well in the search engines but not better than wordpress. Wordpress.org is my favorite, but you have to have your own domain and hosting.

      Thanks so much for sharing.  I didn't realize when using Wordpress that we needed a Domain and Hosting.  I always thought Wordpress offered free blogger service.

        There's actually 2 different Wordpress sites. Wordpress.org is the one you need your own domain and hosting for and Wordpress.com you don't. smile

    I saw a blog of a friend of mine made in Tumblr and it seemed to have a lot more things going on than blogger..maybe a bit more complicated? boxes floating everywhere.

    Tumblr is great as far as outlook is concerned and I use it to promote my contents, but never used adsense with Tumblr. Though blogger is already loaded with many functionality, but I find problem with indexing blogger blogs to Google, even with great content. That is why I no longer using Blogger.

    Thanks guys..it was nice to see that. Actually I wrote for Blogger for sometime now but it really bad since I am getting a hard time to get it indexed.

    Therefore, trying out Tumblr for a change!

      Go for it.

      And thanks for bringing it to my attention that Adsense could be used. I was unaware of it, and having seen countless dozens of tumblr blogs thus far not one of them had Adsense in them. But now I know better!
