Tumblr makes everyone equal. Stars show they fall over occasionally when they put their pants on, cheerleaders are depressed, ugly kids are shown to be beautiful where it counts, and those of us without friends are popular. Everyone’s equal, w/o LCD
I love that tumblr reminds me that there are A LOT of people who accept my unpopular liberal, filthy hippie, muscially obscure, geeky, fat accepting, equality advocating, fandom-happy opinions. Makes me feel like I have a place to belong.
It’s a shelter for all the characters we love but no longer get (ie Steph, Cass, Connor) and also an enormous depository of adorable cats.
I had a hard time getting used to it, but I love my Dashboard now. Such varied things pop up now that I have followed interesting, and some not so interesting, blogs. Some are cool and entertaining, some are deep and meaningful, some purile and dirty
THE AWESOMILITIOUS PEOPLE ON HERE THAT ARE JUST CREATIVE AS FUCK, AND ARE HILARIOUS. I FUCKING <3 ALL YOU GUYS
That it’s so easy to connect with so many people through such varied media. :D
I like that it’s all I WILL SING YOU THE SONG OF MY PEOPLE and then they break into the Doctor Who theme or wave a picture of Johnlock. It’s fandom distilled and there’s nothing better.
The creative community & how easy it is to view others’ work & share your own.
The community. You can interact with fellow fans and the makers of what you are fans of, and everyone’s chill about it. I’ve managed to find new friends through tumblr- and met one IRL. You’re never out of the loop about your fav stuff, and that’s awesome.
that I get my daily illustration fix, I constantly find inspiration, meet and talk to like-minded people and learn about some great activism projects that I wouldn’t otherwise know about
