If you’re using Tumblr and abusing the privilege of reblogging from blogs that also came from another blogs, posting pictures of yourself in every angle, side view, front view, back view, you may not like what I’m about to write; free to leave.
I had a Tumblr blog a year ago and I can’t even remember the name ’cause I had a rough time overhauling and making it a fresh and sensible blog and not all about vain picture picture picture. It lasted for about months till I came to accept that it’s not for me. Reasons are:
- I hate the idea of TOO MUCH reblogging, especially if merely photographs are to be reblogged. I know that there are a lot of picture worth reblogging, very funny and cute images worth sharing BUT if you only intend is to borrow (by means of reblogging) every single post you make it may signify that you don’t have an ounce of creative juice running through your veins. I adore creativity and uniqueness. I know there are also lots of Tumblr bloggers out there that write good, know how to spell right, ideas are original and photos they post aren’t purely from other people BUT they become SCARCE in Tumblr community.
- Tumblr becomes a photo album. Apology but I think cyber photo album is more suitable term than photo blog. Sana nag-upload ka na lang ng mga picture mo sa Facebook o Twitter.
- Old school ako. I stick to traditional practices of blogging. When you blog, it has to be more than two sentences. Jejemon way of typing is prohibited. You have to spell each word correct with proper punctuation (Oo, nagpapatama ako). When you’re into photo blogging, you use your own photos and it doesn’t appear like a photo album. Figure out yourself the difference. And reblogging is minimized. Uh, perhaps, I just got used to blog like this for many years but frankly, it is really annoying to see the way some people blog on Tumblr as much as I annoy you now.
I don’t discourage you to use Tumblr. I only want is to vent my opinions and distaste. You can also do this on your Tumblr blog, ‘Why I Hate WordPress’ and let’s be merry. For me, if you prefer to write like a pro, Blogger.com or WordPress.com are more appropriate. I haven’t tried Multiply and others but those are certainly way better. But if your only goal is to reblog cool gif photos then go, soothe/suit yourself.
I took a screenshot of this long ago ’cause I was convinced that I’ll blog about this in the future, and it happened. My Tumblr has been deleted. Cheers. 🙂
