22 Tumblr Style WordPress Themes

Tumble blogging or Microblogging and its most famous platform, tumblr, are more popular than ever.  What’s the appeal?  Well, for a lot of people it appears that microblogging has done for blogging what twitter did for social media.  It makes the whole thing seem do-able.  After all, it’s much easier to see yourself posting a video, or a picture, or a quote as opposed to 500 – 1,000 intelligent or clever words on…anything.  Sometimes all you want to say, and all that needs to be said is, “Wow, this is cool.  You should see it.”

However true that may be though, there are definite benefits to using a more mature platform like WordPress for your blogging needs – even if you don’t want to get too intense with your commentary.  For instance, a feature that is sorely lacking on tumblr is the inability to edit your Post URL for SEO.  There are a few other issues too and it’s enough to drive you crazy! So if you’re looking for the simplicity of tumblr and the control of WordPress, these themes may be just what you need.  Oh, and don’t forget to check out this plugin by WooThemes that extends the tumblr feel to your dashboard as well.

Enjoy!
