I’ve been reminded of why I love my tumblr community so much yet again as I’ve received these nice birthday wishes from so many of my favorite tumblr peeps. And I’ve noticed that the people who like me, and whom I like, all have similar tumblrs. We each have our things we’re passionate about (usually represented by what we reblog), things like Star Wars, science, faith, humor, romance, music, wrestling or what have you. But we all also produce something original, even if it’s just some pictures or some rants. And all of our tumblrs feel “alive.” Our personalities come through and we interact sincerely with people we have never met. We don’t just post Sherlock gifs and complain about fifth period algebra (no offense…well, a little offense).
So I’ve been thinking that I’m tempted to make up some kind of “Good Housekeeping Seal Of Approval” to identify those tumblrs. Yes, it would likely be quite subjective, but I feel like I want a list of links on my homepage for people so that they know that if they like my style, they might like Un, or Culby, or iambal, or the baffled, or tacgnol. Even though the interests of those individuals couldn’t be more different, they all represent the best of what tumblr can be.
They’re my phony baloney Internet family. And I love them!
So I should probably just start by doing something like a “Follow Friday” posting. I know I’ll miss some, but I can always add to the list at any time.
And then we’ll need a logo.
A kick ass logo.
