Okay, so I snagged this WordPress domain some 6 years ago, when I first came up with my YouTube channel name [at the time, I couldn’t believe “nappyheadedjojoba” wasn’t already taken! (I wish I was kidding about that…)]. But, since my old-old blog was already on Tumblr, I snatched up my nappheadedTumblr domain, as well, and opted to use that for blogging. I figured it would just be easier to migrate the small number of followers I had on my old Tumblr to a new Tumblr, rather than to a new…something else.
The problem is, I fucking hate Tumblr. It’s not very user friendly, unless all you ever want to do is reblog someone else’s shit. I’m pretending to run a proper blog, over here, so I need it to not be a complete pain in the ass to, you know, write an actual post. Just writing this post right now on WordPress, I can tell you that it’s night and day easier than it is on Tumblr. I don’t have to worry about remembering the HTML script to include a link, or to use italics or line breaks. It is glorious.
I say all of this to say that I’m going to finally stop procrastinating on migrating my content, and will start posting from WordPress. Nappyheadedjojoba.com will soon redirect here, rather than to my Tumblr. I don’t think I’m going to migrate all my past posts and repost them here. Rather, I’ll just link to the old Tumblr blog, as needed. I feel better already!
