The reason tumblr has been down is because over this past year tumblr has had a massive addition of new users, and quite frankly a lot of us ( those of us who were around when tumblarity was ) don't appreciate it.
I think a lot of us can agree on if you do not credit your posts/ get your posts from weheart it/ only reblog and text post, you should consider leaving tumblr, or changing your tumblr to something more suiting.
I know this sounds ridiculous but I honestly think ( as i’ve said before ) if you want to join you should have to take some sort of test ( sure, call it a hipster test. ) and tumblr should have to scale through your music library/last.fm to see if you’re able to join. As self absorbed as that sounds, I know a lot of you agree that a whole fleet of myspace trash has flooded in, not only because of jessi slaughter, because Tumblr in general has had increased media attention over the past year. Tumblr is not facebook nor is it Myspace. It’s unfair for the users of Tumblr who treat it respectfully to have to deal with this out and out bullshit.
This is not a matter of taking blogging too seriously, this is a matter of bringing back what Tumblr originally was.
lol oh my god are you saying you have to be indie enough to be allowed on tumblr
i need to reblog this again just to point out how ridiculous this whole post is.
This is one of the most ridiculous posts I have ever read. If you think that tumblr should only be for certain people, then you are an idiot. Tumblr is for people to post whatever they enjoy. If they want to post photos of puppies, or clowns, or sunsets or Justin Bieber, then it’s their choice, not yours.
