Tumblr's getting mainstream? by Chocoreaper Tumblr's getting mainstream? by Chocoreaper
Don't get me wrong, I LIKE Tumblr. Especially with the awesome awesome pictures & all that reblogging. But for some reason it seems that almost EVERYONE I know has a Tumblr. Both IRL & online friends & siblings & cousins. The site's really competing well with Twitter & Facebook :clap:

Btw I don't have a Tumblr, I use Soup (cuz I like trying other sites similar to popular ones) & before that I used to reblog stuff from Tumblr in my Multiply.
And since I dont own a Tumblr I tried recreating the dashboard myself in Photoshop and it doesnt look perfect. Im even too lazy to type the stuff on top of those white wordbubbles so I just wrote them

there's the 1st version of this pic [link] which has a different background.
& the nebula pic's from here: [link]
and YES, I really do own the headphones, jacket & the headphones necklace IRL. Just not the glasses. My glasses r different.

I have a pretty close nit group of friends and family out of them all only my vest friend and I have a tumblr. And he has threatened me with a slow painful death if I invite people and make it 'mainstream' lol.

meh, tumblr's not too popular yet. Still some cool people and pretty much everyone i knew (besides my friends) have no idea what Tumblr is, so that's good.

in that case that's pretty good that Tumblr is still underground-ish. The thing that's exploding right now is Pinterest.

Leaving a site just because there are many people is a stupidity. It's my opinion.

Btw, sorry for my bad English.

Worse, criticize a site because there are many people and don't having one...

hipsters are like the new emo & scene kids.
maybe most of them. but im friends with Tumblrites (and my sister & cousin have tumblr too) but they're quite nice. then again maybe they're just the minority.

I.. have the glasses and that's about it. I totally agree, it seems that whenever there's a website that is amazing but not popular.. just wait a few months. Then it will be.

I know how you feel, that happened to me with Twitter first, I was like, the only one around me friends to have a twitter account and suddenly all my class had one and I was like "shit, I can't use my twitter freely ever again" Then I found Tumblr and discovered some 'friends' had one too -.-u

I have Soup! It is much better than tumblr no offence. I really hate the attention seeking on tumblr.... Soup is just fun!

they do that on Tumblr? I didnt know. I have Soup but I'm surrounded with people who are on Tumblr, my sister & cousin included.
Soup is much more low-pro.

[link] THAT is a tumblr. Basically it's a light blogging site (not exactly a microblogging site like Twitter) but yeah, everyone seems to love it. You can just post a few paragraphs of updates, pictures, songs & videos (but mostly just pictures, i dunno why)
