Follow me on Pinterest!
, and there are .
Now that Yahoo has purchased Tumblr, will you be staying around? Oh, and hallo from Canberra in Aus!
Haha, hello Canberra! I have a really good friend studying there. I’m doing this ask first because it’s really relevant to what’s going on now, but I will get round to the other ones in time!
Anyway, to answer your question I think I will for a bit. I know the acquisition been causing an uproar in the Tumblr community with many saying they’re just going to leave. In a way, our blogs are sort of associated with us and I understand that many don’t want to be associated with Yahoo!. That being said, I started this on Tumblr and my first fans were from the incredibly friendly and awesome Tumblr community (who, may I say, have excellent taste and are incredibly beautiful people ;D) and so I think for now I will stay here where my fanbase mostly is until something major happens.
Like Yahoo puts ads all over my site until it looks more like a collage of “Single Women Waiting To Chat Now!” ads rather than a blog for how to tie silk scarves.
There aren’t many alternatives either currently, which is a pity. I have created a Pinterest so, y’know, if you’re leaving Tumblr because it can’t be cool anymore please do follow me there so you can stay tuned. If Yahoo! does screw up Tumblr (slash all my fans abandon ship), I’m sure Wordpress would be happy for me to export my entire Tumblr over to them. If you do know of a free visual-based microblogging alternative, send me an ask!
Sorry for the lengthy reply but I hope that you will be staying around even if Yahoo! technically owns this site now :) On the bright side, ol’ Karp is still CEO?
