How is Tumblr better than blogger

The best Tumblr alternatives

Thomas Joos

The Tumblr microblogging platform offers many features that bloggers like to use. However, there are alternatives that are more suitable for certain users.

EnlargeTumblr: blogger platform with many functions

An example of users looking for Tumblr alternatives are people who like to share image galleries, videos, or photos. Artists who want to publish their works on the Internet may also benefit from other platforms.

Tumblr became known, among other things, for distributing pornographic content. These are now largely blocked, so that interested users in this direction migrate to alternatives that simplify sharing for adult content. Since December 2018, Tumblr has banned the sharing of sexual images. On other platforms this is still allowed or even desired as long as the content is legal.

Swarmr - the clone

The English-language microblogging site Swarmr is a clone of Tumblr. It is also used by people who want to leave Tumblr because they can no longer easily share sexual content there.

Bdsmlr - blogging platform for fetishes

Users can also share sexual content on the English-language fetish platform https://bdsmlr.com. However, you can now find significantly more content than fetishes on Bdsmlr, as many Tumblr customers have already moved here. The user interface of Bdsmlr is quite similar to that of Tumblr. Another benefit of the platform is the ability to import blogs from Tumblr.

Sharesome - Sharing sexual content is encouraged

With the English-language service Sharesome, sharing special content is encouraged as long as it is legal. The operators advertise themselves as the first and best social network for sexual content. Users can easily share, comment, rate and also like content.

Pinterest tips and pictures

The social network Pinterest is also an alternative to Tumblr. Graphics and photographs are shared here. But shopping tips are also exchanged via this site, as well as information about hobbies. Pinterest has a large user base and is constantly growing. The platform is mainly used by people with mobile devices.

Instagram - for photo bloggers

Most people on the Internet are probably familiar with Instagram. This platform is also an alternative to Tumblr. The focus here is primarily on photo bloggers who want to quickly disseminate their pictures on the Internet. Instagram has also established itself as a very great alternative to Facebook, which young users in particular prefer. Photos can be marked (tags) and thus distributed faster. There is a follower system, similar to Facebook and Twitter. Instagram makes it possible to build social networks.

Devian Art - blogger platform for artists

The English-language platform Devian Art is a good alternative to Tumblr, especially for artists. It is generally free to use. But there are also paid services and benefits. Above all, artists are active on the platform and can exchange ideas with one another. Commenting and feedback for galleries is possible.

The focus is on the dissemination of picture galleries. Above all, drawings and paintings are a central component of Devian Art. Anime, Flash films, stock photographs and vector graphics are also offered. Texts are also not very common, but still exist.

Users can sell pictures and drawings via the platform, which they can then print out and send via the internal shop. Forums and an internal mail system are also offered. Copyright and license problems can be reported using a reporting function.

Wordpress - the veteran

The blogging platform Wordpress, which also allows the operation of your own server, is certainly the greatest alternative to Tumblr. With Wordpress you can create extensive blog posts. Wordpress also offers numerous themes and functions that can be quickly and easily integrated into your own blog. Websites are significantly expanded using plug-ins. However, Wordpress is only a social network to a limited extent.

Medium.com - in cooperation with Twitter

The English-language service Medium.com can also be an alternative to Tumblr. Like Twitter, Medium was founded by Evan Williams. The registration for the service is therefore also carried out through the Twitter account of users. If you use Twitter, you can also create blog posts together with Medium. Instead of a website-like blog page, Medium is geared towards sharing communities. The menu interface can be used mobile.

Soup.io - easy sharing of content

The Soup.io platform, available in German and English, is intended to make it possible to share content quickly and easily without having to think about the complicated functions of platforms. Soup.io is therefore a very simple blogging platform. The users have a profile that can be supplemented by blog posts. Soup is not particularly attractive and modern, but easy to use.

Memosnag - easy sharing of web content

Memosnag, in English like most Tumblr alternatives, allows you to save web content in your own profile. To do this, users create a “collection” that includes information and content. These collections can be published. Sources can be added automatically and users can create comments and start discussions. The operators of Memosnag also provide an app for iOS and an Android app.

Blogger.com - belongs to Google

Blogger.com is one of the better known alternatives for Tumblr. The platform is owned by Google and offers easy blogging of content with the help of an easy-to-use, web-based editor. Blogger also allows you to view detailed statistics such as monthly page views, traffic sources and much more. The service can also be integrated into Google's Adsense program. Blog functions such as multi-user support, assigning permissions, posting by e-mail and comments are also supported.
