So, someone I’m following made a post earlier, saying the people this person follows should stop reblogging from another user, because virtually none of that user’s content is original, it’s all reblogged from somewhere else. It brought to the surface a nagging doubt I’ve had since starting Tumblr about a week ago. Namely, I don’t have much original content. I’m not a witty person. Whenever I do make some kind of post, it’s kind of irrelevant and highly personal. I really just follow and like things, reblogging some of my favorites. I start wondering, am I a failure? Am I annoying Tumblr? Should I get off?
Then I realized something. A few things, actually. A) My only followers are my friends (I KNOW PEOPLE ON HERE O.O) who did me the courtesy of following me back, so they might like to know my inner thoughts and feelings, so I think I’m probably not bugging them too much.
But point B) is the important one. I realized it doesn’t matter if I’m a super funny original blogger or someone just sitting back and watching. Go look at my freaking About Me. What does it say? I’m here to FOLLOW the internet. Not everyone has to be a leader! The internet has leaders, and it has followers. And that’s okay! After all, we couldn’t very well have TUMBLR without FOLLOWERS now could we. Not to mention, a friend of mine made me a Welcome To Tumblr powerpoint, and included in the types of blogs I might find, she said “And then there are the personal blogs. They post whatever they very well please.” WELCOME TO YOUR FRICKING PERSONAL BLOG. I came here to watch the internet unfold and archive the parts I love. So if you don’t like that, hey, don’t follow! (not directed at either of my followers, just a general statement to the internet) Go back to your little nest of internet projects and I’ll wait with eager anticipation for the next release.
GUYS STOP ME OK OR SOMEONE DO THIS FOR ME BECAUSE YOU KNOW IT WOULD BE HILARIOUS
