I just reblogged something about the news with Tumblr and Yahoo, and wrote a very long amount of tags to it. Unfortunately it didn’t post, so I am going to just say this instead.
Apparently Yahoo has been known for deleting sites that don’t make it money. That’s understandable.
But when i read that tumblr had lost what, 300 million? dollars because they couldn’t figure out how to monetize it my blood ran cold. Why?
because it WILL happen. Don’t tell me to chill, don’t tell me to relax, don’t tell me they wouldn’t really do it.
It’s happened to me before.
I’ve been on tumblr for 4 years now. I want you to know that I love you guys. All of you. I don’t say that enough. I don’t say it as much as other blogs. But I really do, I sincerely love all of you especially my mutuals, and I wish I could run to you and hug each and every one of you right now.
But I cannot. Right now I am reminded of how fragile and tenuous the threads of communication are which bind us together across continents. How dangerous it is to make the internet one’s lifeblood.
I could back up all of my original content but I could never replace any of you.
When I was a member of the young writers’ social network, Inkpop, Harpercollins decided it wasn’t making enough money and sold it to Figment. Even those of us who made the jump to Figment and salvaged our writing lost our communities, our status, and even our potential careers.
Now is the time to look elsewhere. If you have anything at all invested in your tumblr blog you need to jump ship. I don’t know where to go. We’re like rats on a sinking boat. But it has to be done. Heed the warning signs. Don’t wait for a cue.
When they deleted Inkpop, they gave us three days warning. Three. Days.
don’t call him a man
it’s nOT DIFFICULT THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER WORDS YOU COULD USE
IDGAF WHAT U USE SO LONG AS ITS GENDER NEUTRAL.
I’m nearly inactive there (I actually just made it back in November in case something like this happened) so I won’t clog up your feed, and if you do follow me, I’ll follow you back! And this isn’t just for mutuals - if any of my followers would like to follow me there, I’ll follow you back as well! <3 The threat of losing this site may pass, but in the event it doesn’t, please don’t hesitate to message me on Twitter!
And I just want to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has followed me here for so long - I’ve had so much fun meeting you all and I’ve made some really awesome friends! I know we all joke about how trashy this site is - and it totally is - but I’ve been super thankful to meet all you guys \(;w;)/
I’m getting dressed in my room after a shower, when I hear intense whispering outside my door and running feet, and “ADDY GET ME A SHOE BEFORE IT GOES INTO MOM’S ROOM!!” Followed by a SLAM on the wall…And I don’t think I even want to know what my brave son just saved me from… O.o
as of like, two minutes ago, I HAVE FINISHED MY FUCKIN BOOK
