An explanation as to why my Tumblr, well, sucks
Lately, I have been having a bad time here at Tumblr.
The other day, someone who is really famous at Tumblr slapped me in the face. Well, not literally, I would be exaggerating with that. Anyway, this person told me how bad my Tumblr page looked and how it was not very interesting, how the page couldn’t be anybody’s type.
This morning, another indirectly told me how my Tumblr page is better off with posts other than the ones I have been posting recently. Indirectly, I was told how my page sucks.
Honestly, they are so right. Being not so much of a Tumblr geek, an artist, a writer, a doodler, a blogger, or whatnot, I can’t really give what my followers want from me. I don’t have the power to post things that would be liked and reblogged by millions. I can’t even edit photos that could lure a thousand people from Tumblr into following me. I can’t prolong any conversation from people from Tumblr because I don’t have the faintest power to win anybody’s attention here.
Yet, here I am, still sane enough not to deactivate my account. I could or should have, but I don’t want to.
I have to think why I made an account here to make my feet stay on Tumblr ground.
We have all the freedom to post here what we want to share. As for me, my posts have become a venue to express who I am, what I feel, what I feel like doing, what I want, and who I want to be. This has become my outlet for expression. I know many, if not all, don’t give a damn over every post I share, but that fact would not make me less of a person. I have the sole power to everything I post. I don’t have to detour to another path just to impress some who are too blind to see what really expression is all about.
Also, I follow blogs that suits my interest. We all do that here, don’t we? But I don’t end there. I also follow people for friendship. Well, behind every great post is even a greater person from whom great ideas well up. The following back thing, for me, is important, too. After all, I follow for friendship as well, and following back is an understood denotation that the person is interested to know you through your posts in return.
Thus, post just who you are. People root for you to post just exactly who you are.
I hope I have explained myself clear enough. Again, sorry, I can’t impress you guys the way you want me to. I have to impress myself first by expressing what I feel before I impress everybody else.
