When people trash-talk Tumblr...
I get it.
But I feel they don’t understand why I use it. I understand that people throw their opinions around and that micro-blogging waters down good art and all that stuff people talk about, but at the end of the day, I realize that because of Tumblr my life is better.
Tumblr is only as good as what you put it in. Through it, I met my lady. Through it, she found some like-minded people with whom to work on poetry. I found a publisher who helped me realize my dream of transforming my manuscript into a novel. I’ve met hundreds of people who have a passion for news, poetry, life, the truth.
And yeah, there’s been one or two jerks - but so what? That’s life. Every time I walk out the door, I deal with it. I can deal with it here. It’s worth it.
