    • Tumblr is a online-micro blogging system but it can not be installed in a private server. WordPress, instead can be installed in private server and it is a open-source CMS based on PHP. Guest • Mar 2017 • 13 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is not even the same category... Like comparing cheese to a helicopter... Guest • Jun 2017 • 11 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's easy. Wordpress is better for lots of things. But Tumblr is pretty straightforward for just putting text, pictures, or other files up where it's publicly addressable. edenwJan 2017 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • WordPress is a web-engine, when tumblr is a social-network/blogging platform, like live for example is built above WordPress but it is not similar to WordPress Guest • May 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Tumblr is a social media platform that cannot be self-hosted. It is not a blogging-oriented content management system, which Wordpress is. Guest • May 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Its like comparing cheese to a helicopter. Tumblr being the cheese. Guest • Apr 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Completely different category. WordPress can be used to make a Tumblr-like blog but Tumblr can in no way get close to replacing WordPress. Guest • 8 days ago Disagree   Agree

    Free Open Source Web Self-Hosted PHP Markdown

    Grav icon
    • It's not a messy pile of spaghetti code. It uses modern tools like Composer and Twig. Guest • Jul 2017 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is more developer friendly. The project structure is very clean, easy to configure and deploy. Using flat files instead of a SQL database might be limiting for some, but it's perfect for most standard sites like blogs, agency websites and even E-commerce. Twig for templates leads to cleaner code and a better separation of concern (Almost impossible to mix business logic in your templates). I guess the only downside is lack of plugins and templates for now. Guest • Jan 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • No database required. Every posts is saved in very simple markdown files. therojamApr 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Grav does not save things to a database, and does not ship with the same functionality such as having posts with categories. Guest • Jun 2017 • 1 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree

I had a custom, ad-hoc blogging software that I had coded and designed for my own needs, but I just couldn't compete with the competent team of developers that is behind Wordpress. I switched to it eight months ago and never looked back.
