I’ve used all the major blogging platforms and it really depends on your needs.
Tumblr is the best option for a first time blogger who needs a free, simple, intuitive blog platform that can handle images, text, video and audio posts, has a slick design with full customization options, a built in social community and the ability to queue posts to publish weeks in advance on a schedule you determine. You can also use a custom URL if you have one.
If however you want to start the next TechCrunch or Huffington Post and have designers and developers on hand, then WordPress offers a platform that can present a blog that looks and works more like a full website, with thousands of plugins covering all your functionality and analytic needs.
Even if you do go down the WordPress route, I’d still recommend getting a Tumblr blog where you can publish content and links, and build a community. No other blog platform offers the same access to a built-in audience, and you’re going to need readers!
