and microblogging

anonymous asked:

This is my first time on your blog buddy and im not criticizing you for a blog but about posting random shit about your life, is there something lacking that creates the need to share pointless events with strangers? Also, blogging publicly opens you up to comments. I commented, from the rest of your blog you don't seem immature unlike that tag. Its pretty on par with "mess with me and my daddy will sue you" "hit me and I'll own your stupid school" What would you actually have done to the school

This seems to be your first time on the Internet. Welcome! The particular website you are on is Tumblr dot com, a “microblogging site”. A blog is a series of separate, updated posts by one individual or organization, typically informal, often written as a kind of journal. Some blogs have particular themes, while others may contain content that is only loosely related. Blogs usually describe the sort of content one can expect from them in an “about” section, with phrases like “This is ultimately a personal blog - I post about my life and things that interest me.” It is reasonable to expect that the owner of that blog will likely post about their life and things that interest them.

If that sort of content alarms or upsets you, do not despair! There are many other types of websites. There are forums on which you can discuss a single subject of interest to you with strangers, sites and apps for browsing beautiful photographs, and wikis that contain publicly-editable encyclopedia entries on a nearly unfathomable breadth of topics. There are even countless websites devoted to hosting pictures, videos, and fiction broadly considered sexually arousing.

With a few exceptions, all of these websites are accessible to you to visit at your leisure. Chances are you’ll find something you like - if you’re having trouble, search engines like Google.com will help you find content relevant to your interests by searching for key words or phrases. And if you don’t like the content you find on one site? Leaving is as easy as closing the page. This freedom of passage means that interpersonal interaction is entirely voluntarily, so, if you were so inclined, you could have exclusively constructive or meaningful conversations with people.

If you decide that blogging is something you like and wish to spend more time on Tumblr dot com, you’ll eventually encounter other individuals constructing posts exclusively using words. These are called “text posts”. Even if you follow a blog, you don’t have to read these unless they interest you. If you * do* decide to read them, you should know that humans use certain writing conventions to convey ideas and feelings through typed words. They may employ common devices such as hyperbole, sarcasm, and rhetorical questions to express an emotion or make a point. You can almost always discern whether these things are meant literally using context clues. For example, because time seems to move in a linear fashion, it may be understood that a statement akin to “you wanna fucking go?” in reference to a subject that is not present or in the intended audience of the question, in response to a situation now in the past, is not a literal invitation to a violent physical contest.

Dramatic overstatements and absurdity are used on the Internet for comedic effect. For example, other bloggers might make comments like “call my goldfish cishet and I will literally throw you into the sun”. This is, of course, not meant to be understood literally - humor is derived from the preposterous imagery. If someone were to respond to this statement by unironically and hostilely explaining that goldfish do not have complex theories of gender and the original poster would not have the strength to throw someone forcefully enough to break Earth’s gravitational pull, that would be humorous for a very different reason. Someone would likely make a second response using a photograph of the character Dwight Schrute from the American television series “The Office”. Another example of absurdity-as-comedy you might encounter on Tumblr dot com is someone jokingly taking an insincere and aggressive question at face value and answering with a lengthy, overly-detailed explanation.

Who is this Tumblr?

Y/n: Okay girls, I have something important to show you.

Nat: I’m intrigued?

Wanda: Is it naked Thor?

Y/N: WANDA

Nat: WANDAAA.

Wanda: What, girl has her needs.

Wanda: But you’re seriously not going to tell me he’s not hot.

Y/N: He’s old.

Wanda: You mean, he’s hot for an old guy.

Nat: Y/n, Cap and Bucky are almost hundred but that doesn’t stop you from gushing over them.

Y/N: Nah, he’s just pretty much old.

Wanda: Y/n stop, you’re not fooling anyone.

Y/N: About that, I have something to share with you, as I already mentioned but you girls have a concentration of a two year old, so.

Nat: Hey don’t assault, I may have a concertation of a child, but I certainly don’t punch like one.

Wanda: Y/n do you feel like flying?

Y/N: What do you mean?

Y/N: Not funny Wanda, LET ME THE FUCK DOWN.

Wanda: Since you asked so nicely.

Y/N: Damn you, Wanda.

Y/N: By let me down, I didn’t mean throw me into wall and almost break all of my bones.

Nat: Wanda, sometimes I think you’re bigger child than Tony.

Y/N: Let’s face it, you can never be bigger child than Tony.

Nat: Ah, true story.

Y/N: Will you now finally let me say what I have to say?

Wanda: Spill your soul, honey.

Y/N: You know I was telling you about Tumblr and fanfictions, yeah?

Nat: I think I still quiet don’t get it.

Y/N: Anyways, I found this amazing fanfiction about Steve and Bucky.

Y/N: It gave me all kind of different feelings.

Nat has added Bucky and Steve.

Nat: Guys, I think Y/n wants to tell you something.

Y/N: NAT

Y/N: You better start running.

Steve has added Tony, Sam, Thor, Clint and Vision.

Y/N: Oh thanks Steve.

Steve: Anytime.

Steve: Now do you want to explain yourself?

Thor: May I just inquire, who is this Tumblr you’re speaking of?

Clint: Buddy, you don’t even wanna know.

Tony: As I wise man once said, stay away from Tumblr. You don’t wanna get involved.

Sam: It’s not who, it’s a page on the internet.

Steve: Tony, who was that “wise man”?

Y/N: I agree with Clint and Tony, it’s not for innocence people like you, Thor.

Vision: My sources claim that Tumblr is a microblogging and social networking website founded by David Karp in 2007, and owned by Yahoo! since 2013. The service allows users to post multimedia and other content to a short-form blog. Users can follow other users’ blogs. Bloggers can also make their blogs private. For bloggers, many of the website’s features are accessed from a “dashboard” interface.

Thor: I am not innocence.

Thor: I’ve killed many enemies and I fear nothing. One little foolish page can’t do much.

Sam: Yep, definitely too green for Tumblr.

Tony: Simply, page where people post stuff about their favourite celebrity.

Tony: Me of course.

Wanda: Vision, did you take that from Wikipedia?

Clint: Oh you just console yourself with that, Thor.

Vision: My sources gave me this information.

Steve: Why did I even ask anything?

Y/N: You’re our little innocence puppy.

Bucky: I still want to know about that fanfiction that you found

Thor: I can assure you I am not a puppy.

Bucky: Is it good?

Sam: Bucky, your gay is showing.

Tony: Oh Thor.

Thor: Mr. Barnes, I didn’t know you were homosexual.

Bucky: I am not.

Vision has left the chat.

Y/N: Face it Buck, we all know you got hot’s for our captain America.

Steve: We are very good friends.

Nat: That’s what they all say, “JUST FRIENDS”

Wanda: Wait am I the only one here that’s team Stony?

Clint: No you’re not.

Thor: What’s team Stony?

Sam: No Thor

Sam: You don’t want to know.

Sam: You should just leave and never ever mention Tumblr again.

Sam: Or fanfictions.

Thor: How dare you tell son of Odin, god of Thunder to leave?

Bucky: HIT HIM WITH LIGHTNING.

Y/N: I love you Sam, but THOR LISTEN TO BUCKY.

Y/N: Just tell me when you’re about to do it cuz I want to film it.

Y/N: Imagine how many notes I would get for that.

Sam: O thanks Y/N, I really appreciate it.

Nat: You know when love you, but that would be spectacular.

Thor: All right guys, be right back.

Thor: Or how you kids write it.

Thor: BRB

Sam has been disconnected

Thor has left the chat.

Nat: I have to see this.

Nat has left the chat.

Wanda: Right behind you.

Y/N: Film it for me.

Wanda has left the chat.

Y/N: Thanks to Wanda I can’t go now.

Tony: Well I will film it for you Y/N.

Tony has left the chat.

Bucky: So the fanfiction, what was it about?

Y/N: Oh you know, basic stuff.

Clint: Wait Y/N, is it that one that you showed me like a week ago?

Y/N: Yep that would be the one.

Steve: I am curios now, what was it about? Beside me and Bucky.

Clint: That is peace of art.

Y/N: Every fanfiction is a piece of art.

Thor has joined the chat.

Bucky: I can agree on that one.

Bucky: Not because I read them.

Bucky: But because people put effort in it, you know.

Steve: Just stop Bucky, you’re embarrassing yourself.

Thor: I’ve got him lady Y/n, just like you said.

Thor: Oh no, that was Mr. Barnes.

Thor: Anyhow, he was lightning like a Christmas tree.

Y/N: Man I wish I could’ve see that.

Clint: I will go check on him.

Clint: And don’t worry, I will take photos.

Clint has left the chat.

Steve: maybe I would pay him a visit too.

Thor: Oh it’s nothing.

Steve has left the chat.

Thor: I didn’t hurt him that badly.

Bucky: I still want to know about that fanfiction.

Y/N: God damn it, it was about you and Steve Fucking, will you shut up now?

Thor: So you are homosexual, Mr. Barnes?

Bucky: No, I am not.

Bucky: But would you mind sending me link tho?

Thor: I want to read it too.

Y/N: No Thor, I will find you some fanfiction about Jane and you.

Y/N: Meanwhile, don’t hit me with no thunder.

Y/N: Bucky come to my room and I will show you.

Thor: I would never hurt you, Lady Y/N.

Thor: Only because you would hurt me ten times more.

Bucky has left the chat.

Y/N: Ah my child.

Thor: You have a child, Lady Y/N?

Y/N: No Thor, I don’t, but I may adopt you.

Y/N: Yeah but your mental age is three so it’s fine.

Y/N has left the chat

Thor: I do not have a mental age of a three year old.

Thor: Oh she left.

Thor: But I do enjoy the chocolate.

Thor: Was that what she meant?

Thor has left the chat.

the horse thing is jst a permanent part of this website now. tumblr has become the first microblogging platform where you can also play a game abt a horse who shits and dies. they hope for it to be the next FarmVille

I honestly feel so fucking bad for people who let any semblance of “success” on Tumblr get to their head.

It’s a fucking microblogging website, no one on here is a bigshot, and everyone is using their page as a free therapist. It’s time to stop being elitist about this shit just because your dumbass text post got 10k notes.

Can he read?

So, a 140-character microblogging platform is suddenly the organ of United States policy, but dyou think Trump reads every tweet @ him?

Dyou think it would hurt his teeny-tiny temperamental fee-fees if everyone in the world started spamming his tag with the 💩 emoji?

Shall we find out?

listen. im some random 18 yr old on a microblogging platform. just coz i have followers doesnt mean i wanna be ya therapist, or give you life advice. i can barely handle my own problems what makes you think i can handle yours? & also im only 18 so i dont have much experience with complex emotional relationships so why even ask me anyway

i can’t believe people on a microblogging site are mad about homophobia and transphobia happening to them. maybe i should start being homophobic and transphobic, but just to prove a point, not because i was clearly 75% of the way there anywho

I saw a post about self diagnosis the other day and there were multiple people in the notes complaining about how “thanks to tumblr’s encouragement of self diagnosis, people don’t actually believe I’m mentally ill”

Tumblr was founded in 2007. Do you really think people with mental illnesses were never disbelieved or disrespected until tumblr came along?

Like, one person said their parents told them they didn’t actually have anxiety bc “All the kids nowadays say they have anxiety” so they were mad at self-diagnosing people on tumblr bc of it and like.. I’ve got bad news for you but my parents were saying that to me back in 2002, before tumblr and before widespread and easily accessible information about mental illness was on the internet.

A microblogging website isn’t the cause of your problems. The people who are being disrespectful to you about your mental illness are.

People who don’t respect/disbelieve those who say they struggle with mental illness have been around since way before tumblr was even a thing and they’d still be doing it even if tumblr had never existed bc that’s just the way people who are mentally ill have always been treated.

this site gets way more fun to use when u approach it as a microblogging platform where once u post something it gets swallowed up fast enough just like twitter rather than a proper Blog TM where ur archive has to look flawless… like we’re all wasting time here anyway so might as well enjoy it

Tips for a happy life: neurodivergent edition

  • set an alarm for a normal time, hit snooze for the next 2 hours as self-loathing intensifies
  • increase heartrate by involving yourself in unnecessary internet drama that doesn’t pertain to you
  • wash down meds with cup of dusty water you found on your dresser
  • read lists with advice you’re currently incapable of implementing in your life
  • listen to one sufjan stevens song on repeat for 4 hours (take your pic, they’re all depressing)
  • “i think i showered last week–should be fine”
  • microwave leftovers, get impatient 30 seconds in and stand in the kitchen shoveling lukewarm, unevenly heated food down your throat
  • use social media and falsely inflated memories of peers from high school and college as ammunition to berate yourself for being so awful
  • think about all the things you could do for self-care, become paralyzed by guilt
  • liveblog your depression on the microblogging platform of your choice, obsess over the validation you do or do not receive and how this reflects your self worth
  • stay up until 4am refreshing your social media even though it’s just you and one other random australian 
  • resolve that tomorrow you’ll stop being such a miserable little shit and get your life together
  • have you tried just, like, not being depressed?
Según wikipedia tumblr es:  Tumblr es una plataforma de microblogging que permite a sus usuarios publicar textos, imágenes, vídeos, enlaces, citas y audio. Según yo, tumblr es VIDA.

You fucking losers seriously think you’re entitled to intense intellectual arguments with every perfect stranger who disagrees with you on a shitty microblogging site it’s so ridiculous this isn’t even the first time I’ve had “well if you won’t argue with me clearly you just don’t have a good argument :)” as if I have to prove myself to some random piece of shit on the internet lmaooo for your own sakes can y'all relax and get over yourselves no one owes you shit especially not when you come to them with hostility and ignorance and demand an in depth discussion about some random discourse they brought up once like this is the internet not the goddamn debate team

in other news I was thinking about starting a “monasticism” tag until I realized how deeply ironic it would be to do that on an internet microblogging platform 

i wish more of my friends had stayed on tungl and twitter

fb and ig are good for like… telling folks where you’ve gone and what you’ve accomplished, but they dont have that unpolished quality of posting that the impermenance of microblogging enables
