First Send will help you set up a blog for your brand or service (for a definition on “Blog’s” check out this link).
WORDPRESS: First Send can not stress enough the benefits of WordPress. We are a big believer in the platform because of its simple set up and navigation and we also feel it offers the most aesthetically interesting themes.
BLOGGER: This blogging platform is a part of the Google family and is also very simple to navigate and has lots of benefits as part of the Google franchise. Plug in’s are easy to use and plentiful. The themes aren’t as sleek and professional looking as what you will find on WordPress but there are lots of good qualities to Blogger.
TUMBLR: Tumblr is often called the lazy man’s blogging platform. It’s probably more like the hipster version out of the three. It’s considered to be very easy to use but it depends on the theme you are using. A lot of brands use Tumblr almost as a back up blog to their main blog. comments are a bit difficult to use on tumblr and as they are an important part of marketing your brand it may not be the best choice for your main blog. A lot of people use the site mostly for reblogging which is a great way for your brand to find a wider audience.
WordPress, Blogger, and Tumblr were voted in the top 5 most popular blogs by Lifehacker in 2010. They held the top 3 positions.
Top 3 positions in Practical E-C0mmerce “Top 10 Blogging Platforms of 2011” .
Wordpress holds the #1 position for “2012 Best Blog Software Comparisons and Reviews” on TopTenReviews.com
That’s a pretty good track record.
