Tumblr is probably the website I visit most frequently. Plus Tumblr isn’t a recent website I’ve been into being on. Tumblr was there for me all through high school and now through college.
Tumblr is a social media site. You can create posts of text, pictures, videos, or audio. Users mostly post pictures. Each account has a special URL that is essentially your username. Unlike wordpress, users tend to create a username thats expresses them uniquely, not just: hannah_o.
My love for Tumblr spawns from the community that lives on the site and how people use images and text to inspire others.
As a member of the lgbt community, Tumblr was a place where I could talk about my feelings without judgement. I actually first came out on Tumblr before I came out to anyone in my personal life. My Tumblr is very personal and I use it like a dairy almost. Expressing my thoughts and feelings through images or rants.
I love Tumblr’s reblog features, allowing me to share and relate to others, and the “ask” box. It’s like a messenger. Tumblr also doesn’t have much of a filter. I don’t recommend it to anyone under the age of 16. There’s curse words and nudity. but I’m all for the free the nipple movement. #sorrynotsorry
