Tumblr is a microblogging platform that used to be very popular a couple of years ago. The site offered an alternative from traditional social media, and it allowed its users to express themselves freely. There was no censorship, which made Tumblr a great place for artists. However, everything changed this year.
Disturbing content was posted by some users which took advantage of Tumblr’s loose regulations, and, as a poorly planned solution, the website decided to ban all NSFW content. Obviously, this affected many users and finding a new platform became a priority. Here are some of the best Tumblr alternatives.
This website was one of the top options for users who migrated away from Tumblr. Pillowfort managed to create a community of users who were getting away from the limitations of other platforms. Nonetheless, the site is still in beta, and if you want to register you will need to pay a small fee. Pillowfort also has a demo so you can try it out.
If you are looking for a Tumblr alternative, Reddit is a great option. The best part about Reddit is that it is organised in subreddits, and you can always find some that match your interests. You can post your own content and receive feedback.
This one seems a bit old school, but it is great for people who used their Tumblr blogs to share their thoughts. Users can choose between the free and paid versions, and it is possible to use themes and plug-ins to customise it.
Dreamwidth describes itself as “a community for all kinds of creative folk”. This website can be a great alternative for artists. Dreamwidth allows users to decide who can see their content. When Tumblr announced its NSFW ban, Dreamwidth was one of the sites that welcomed Tumblr users through a tweet.
