5 great alternatives to Tumblr

When Tumblr arrived on the scene a few years ago it revolutionised blogging. With a combination of Twitter-style following and design that enhanced shortform blogging, no longer did you have to write a long essay when just a picture will do.

Earlier this year Yahoo snapped up the platform for a cool $1.1bn – and this was met with scepticism from many users. After all – it’s like your grandad buying a baseball cap and wanting to join your trendy street dance crew.

So are you tempted to jump ship in case Yahoo do something stupid? What else is out there that’s like Tumblr?
