Blogger Themes Like Tumblr Question

Donald asks…

Free easy to use family blog site?

I want to be able to post videos and pictures and have a nice theme, please help!!

scottparat answers:

You can look into the following options…

Free blogging services:
Blogger/Blogspot ( ), WordPress ( ), Livejournal ( ), Vox ( ), Typepad ( ), Travelpod ( ), Tumblr ( )

Free social-networking services with blogging capabilities:
MySpace ( ), Multiply ( ), Xanga ( ), Windows Live Spaces ( ), Ning ( ).

Blogger/Blogspot is known for its ease of use. Although, you may want to go with a social-networking site, as the point is to connect with other profiles (in this case, the profiles of your family members).

How does make money?

They don’t charge for the blogging service, and they have no ads, but they use tons of bandwidth and server space

scottparat answers:

Earlier this month, Tumblr rolled out its first attempt at making money: a small ($9) fee to make your blog featured in a directory of blogs. Tomorrow, the service is officially rolling out its second revenue generator: premium themes.

The initial 13 themes being featured in this roll-out look pretty great. They come from 7 different designers and will range in price from $9 all the way up to $49. Tumblr declined to give the revenue split between the company and the designers but says that “most” of the money will go to the designers. The premium themes page is actually already live here.

This seems like a smart play for Tumblr. One thing that separates it from rivals such as Posterous is the attention to design. Tumblr already features over 350 free templates that any user can install with the click of a button. “There’s already been a ton of demand for this platform [premium designs] from our developer community, and we know it will add a spectacular collection of new themes and options for our bloggers,” says founder David Karp.

The roll out of this second premium feature is the latest in a huge amount of updates the service has unveiled in the past several weeks. Those include the ability to add static pages to Tumblr blogs, photo replies, video uploads, and even comments (sort of).

Tumblr is also just about to hit 4 million users.

Some of the Services require payment of fees. Subscriber shall pay all applicable fees, as described on the Site in connection with such Services selected by Subscriber. Tumblr reserves the right to change its pricing and to institute new charges at any time, upon ten (10) days prior notice to Subscriber, which will be posted on the Site and e-mailed to Subscriber along with a link to the modified fee schedule so that you can review it. Use of the Services by Subscriber following such notification constitutes Subscriber’s acceptance of any new or increased charges.
