Hello friends. Though I have presided over viral things other people have written on other Tumblrs, this is the first that is my own. Currently my plans are to try and parlay this into a full-time Wizarding World commentary gig.
Apologies to rachelfershleiser for the quality of this photo, but a million thank yous to Rachel for such a fantastic presentation on tumblr at the FutureBook conference just now.
If you spend a lot of time on tumblr and love it and feel like you’ve found your people here—and if you ever feel like it’s hard to explain to people who aren’t on it—be grateful for Rachel: she explained the value of the communities that live here so, so eloquently.
THANK YOU FOR COMING TO LONDON TO TUMBLR-SPLAIN, RACHEL!
