Moreover, the photos which                      have been posted within Tumblr community can be watched really                    frequently. This blog publishing platform comes not only with the                    advantages but also with the drawbacks. The most notable of them                      is the fact that Tumblr platform is used for ‘micro blogging’ and it is                            not the best place for long posts.  WordPress has started as a blogging system but later it has                      evolved to be a full CMS.
