So a good majority of the people on Tumblr are losing their shit at the moment. In case you’ve been living under a rock Yahoo is to buy Tumblr for $1.1 billion, which is around £732 million for those of us who use proper money.
I share everyones anxiety. While I have a small, close circle of good friends I’ve never been the best at making new friends and here on Tumblr I’ve managed to cultivate something loosely resembling a social life, or at least something which comfortably replaces a social life.
People get me on here, they understand the weird shit I like and why I like it because many of them like it too and I’ve been introduced to lots of new things that I would never have come across on my own, stuff like this:
I mean seriously is that not like, the greatest fox you’ve ever seen in your life?
In short, I like it here, I want to stay and I don’t want forces beyond my control to fuck up the warm little burrow I’ve built for myself.
Yet I remain hopeful that Yahoo will surprise us. On the bright side David Karp is staying on as CEO, it wasn’t Facebook that bought us and our beloved porn isn’t going anywhere. They promised not to screw up Tumblr and woe betide them if they do.
