Tumblr: I just can’t understand it

Tumblr: I just can’t understand it
I’ve been blogging for a very long time and I’ve seen the changes in the blogging over the ten years.  I watched the rise and fall of MySpace and beginning of Twitter from the ozzoo. However, something spawned out of Twitter/Facebook womb in the form of Tumblr.
I felt that Twitter took a lot of steam out of blogging, but Tumblr came around and there was a whole new group of bloggers, a bit more self-absorbed. Yes, bloggers like me are already self-absorbed, but Tumblr is a whole new level. It is like a whole new level.
Reading through Tumblr just makes me feel old. I can't believe blogger is the old person's gig. And, why get rid of the “e” in the word tumbler? Is that supposed to be trendy?

Tumblr is for porn.

I think the reason a lot of these sites lose that e is because someone else owns the domains with the right spelling.

After all, Flickr practically was the trope maker for that sort of thing.

You know you're right. I've stumble across a lot of porn on Tumblr...okay not stumbled, (searched) I've seen a great deal of porn on that site. While there might be a lot of SJW and Men's Rights stuff on there, there might be more porn on there than anything else.

Do we include the Brony Porn?
