I guess it was only a matter of time, but last Friday I started a Tumblr. I don’t know why I did it, other than this Tumblr inspired me by always posting great music for me to jam out to, and so that was that. Now I have yet another thing to explain to people, which is always pure joy.
With the blog it was difficult.
Me: So, you know, I just write about stuff that I think about.
Friend: Like what?
Me: Well, maybe I hate how I have to eat with a little fork. That could be a post.
Friend: And people read that?
Then there was Twitter, which was a little harder to explain.
Me: I use it to write about small things, that can’t form a complete blog post. Oh, and I can comment on what other people say and stuff like that.
Friend: So you read the thoughts of a bunch of people you don’t know about such trivial things as what they ate for lunch?
Friend: Are you okay?
Now, with my Tumblr, I really don’t know what to say.
Me: Yeah, I post videos and links and re-post cool stuff other people post about. It’s kinda cool.
Friend: But wait, can’t you do that with a blog and Twitter? I mean, what’s the difference?
Me: Uh, well, it was fun thinking up a title for the Tumblr.
Friend: You do realize you have problems, right?
I can’t wait to have that conversation. But anyway, if you’re looking for more stupid crap to read on the Internet, or if you have succumbed to The Lure Of The Tumblr, come follow me or whatever it is and we’ll all promise not to ever ask each other why we started a Tumblr in the first place.
