I’m so sorry to hear you’re having a rough time. But you’ve come to the right place! Welcome!
Tumblr is like you Facebook Newsfeed and a blog had a baby. If you follow people, their posts will show up on your home page, in order.
When you post things, you have the option of adding hashtags at the bottom, separated by commas. #Herpblr consists of Tumblrs maintained by HSV+ people, and we put #herpblr or #herpes or #hsv in our tags. If you use the Search Tumblr field at the top of the screen to search for any of those tags, you’ll find us!
You can also keep an eye on the notes of herpes-related posts (or this one!) to see who else has hearted or reblogged them, and find other HSV-sensitive Tumblrs that way.
When you post, add your own tags so we can find you. If you’re responding to somebody’s message, like I am to yours, and you want to add tags, hit Post, then from the posted post, hit edit, and add your tags. :) You can respond to posts either by reblogging and adding commentary, or clicking the speech bubble at the bottom of the post, if there is one, and adding a comment as a note. (People can’t really respond directly to those, though.)
