I think people have lost the concept of what tumblr is about. On tumblr, you see “follow me, I follow back” or “the first 10 people to like this…blah blah blah.” Tumblr IS NOT about how many followers you have or about being “tumblr famous,” NOWHERE does it say “gain as many followers as you can.” Tumblr is (well, at least to me) about posting, re-blogging, and writing about WHATEVER you like, WITHOUT being criticized or people automatically saying “you just want the attention” or calling you names and writing hate messages to the person. On tumblr, you have the freedom to do and write what you want and others shouldn’t care or be mean about it. If anything, be nice to the person if they are going through a rough time or need the support. HECK! Send it as anon if you want! ONLY because it’s a nice message. I know, if I were to read that someone is down or need support, I’d try my best to make that person happy and put a smile on their face. This world doesn’t need more hatred, it needs love. Who cares if they want attention? Just let them be. Don’t start sending messages to the person, especially as anon, about how they want attention, are stupid, or ugly. Sending it as anon, says a lot about you IF you’re sending hate messages. “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.”
Right now, I have 78 followers, I have been on tumblr for a while now, and don’t care if I get followed or un-followed. The point for writing this message is NOT to gain more followers, personally I don’t care if I do or don’t get more. If I get un-followed, GOOD. I’m not on tumblr to get followed or gain as many followers possible, I’m only on it to re-blog, post, and write. If I follow people, I don’t want or expect a follow back. I only followed in the first place because I liked that person’s tumblr.
Go ahead, I dare you to think I want attention or want more followers, because all of that is false. Think what you like about this post. After all, you don’t know me and have just read my intentions for this post and thoughts for what I think tumblr is about. NO, I am not writing this to hurt anyone’s feelings. If you want to send hate messages, don’t. You’re just wasting your time, it’s not going to hurt me. It will only make you look as if you are trying to make yourself look better or feel more superior than me, and pathetic. However, if you do and send it as anon, it only tells me that you dnt have the guts to show your identity and are only trying to put me down.
