I fell in love with Tumblr several years ago.
To begin with I didn’t have a clue what I was supposed to do and where it fitted into my writing.
I bought and tweaked multiple Themes. I thought that the more in-your-face the more likely it was that I would rise above the crowd. But that was a mistake. I’m a minimalist at heart, and my Theme reflects that - thank you Ando.
I’m still not sure I fully understand the platform but since I dropped everything except poetry and a daily quote (which I try to post at around 8am), I’ve really begun to see the light.
For me, Tumblr has a unique place in my heart. I can only see its influence growing.
