SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
reblogging again for this ^
And just like that, a little bit of my faith in humanity was restored.
Мир не без добрых людей… / Good people (by ArkadiYM93)
This is really beautiful but also who the fuck lets their naked toddler play in the street or their baby carriage unattended to roll out into a road? Both those nearly gave me a panic attack. Thank goodness there are good people.
When im out in public i notice how so many people walk through their environment like they are in a daze or hypnotized…few are aware of who and what is around them. How many opportunities have you missed to be someone’s savior because you were too buried in your phone or just not looking outside yourself? Wake up. Be an active, aware part of the general public and do your part when the opportunity arises. I sound like a cheesy old scoutmaster but im super serial!
I say this as a person who has gotten to help a lot of people ( and animals) by being aware and i will say helping an old lady cross a street is kind of the best thing ever.

Antibiotics have taken care of the infection that set in (for now), but he needs to have surgery to have the thing removed before this happens:
