Man the appreciation that I have for Tumblr is so real. I was like 14 or so when I made this account and it was such a pivotal point in my life.
I made the decision to delete every other social media platform I had and only stick to Tumblr because at the time it was the only platform where people weren’t flexing and showing off how much better their life was compared to yours.
Tumblr was all about just being who you are. Follower count didn’t matter, you could have a faceless account and still run a dope blog. Everyone was just open-minded and really friendly and nice on here.
So when niggas in high school were telling me that I was so ugly, and so dark, and built like the main character from the Blind Side (lol) etc. thankfully I had the Tumblr community to turn to which celebrated all the things that I was being put down for. And I can only imagine how skewed my self image would be if it wasn’t for this site.
Idk Tumblr just has something that no other social media platform can provide for me. That’s why after all these years I still don’t have an IG, Facebook, Twitter etc. I’m just really grateful that I had this medium while growing up.
