TumblePress – A Free Tumblr-like WordPress Theme
Recently we’ve been very impressed with Tumblr and surprised by their popularity and adoption rates. Tumblr has influenced the design technique of many of those interested in short-form blogging. Although Tumblr has continued to beef up its feature-set, the platform isn’t as extensible or customizable as something like WordPress. There should be a way to combine the simplicity of Tumblr’s posting types and styles with some of the deeper customizations and options of WordPress.
Without keeping you waiting any longer, let me introduce you to TumblePress, a free Tumblr-like WordPress theme. Free answer for those looking to use WordPress as microblogging platform. Now you can have the benefits of easy & efficient microblogging, right on your own server & WordPress installation, with the benefit being that you own and control your own data.
TumblePress is pre-enabled with WordPress Post Format feature. The power of this feature is too much to describe. Because now you can write short status posts like you would on Tumblr (or even Twitter), and have it styled differently without doing too much of work. There’s something wonderfully instant and easy about having Post Format around. You don’t have to think of anything to write, you can literally have it as a stream of consciousness – things you find interesting or amusing or stuff you just like and want to share as you browse.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
The best way to get an understanding of what is achievable with TumblePress is to read more about the functionality it offers and to view the demo. Or you can just download it for free and play around with it yourself.
What are you waiting for? Go Micro! We know you want to, because it’s the trendy thing to do. :D
