Loose lips sink ships

Dear tumblr-ers,

Let’s face it, the secret is out. The ever popular tumblr.com or should I say tu****.com has without a doubt given way to the masses. With more than 20 million users as of this summer, I believe it’s safe to say that your tumblr is no longer “underground” — if it ever really was in the first place.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad you aren’t on Twitter eating up my feed with all of the crap you’re constantly re-blogging and marking as your favorites (and if you were, then I’m sure I un-followed you). In all reality, does posting or re-blogging really accomplish your goals and encompass you as a human being?

Call me old-fashioned, but I prefer a blog formatted blog. Writing, venting or musing on the daily passing thoughts that make a blog real—and in all reality an art form when it comes to writing—those are the blogs that I actually take in and want to read.

 

When it all comes down to it, tumblr is thriving. Hipster souls are dying. End of story.

 

My advice you may ask? Find a platform other than the ever-changing Internet to make known your daily angst and to showcase your self-aggrandizing glory. I’m sure you can meld together some plaid clothes, indie tunes, and references to books you’ve never read into something really nice — yet artfully disheveled—and… hipster.

 

–Love Always,

P.S. Dear Blog Readers, my email was recently hacked and forever compromised along with my Facebook (it was probably a pre-meditated tumblr revolt against me) regardless, my new email is [email protected] share your thoughts.

Also, in both reference to the 10th anniversary of 9/11 this upcoming weekend and to keep the music element of this blog alive, take a listen to the New Jersey natives, My Chemical Romance’s first album, “I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love.” Being in such close proximity to 9/11 prompted the writing of this album and ultimately the formation of the band. (Songs to listen to: “Headfirst For Halos”, “Skylines & Turnstiles”, and “Early Sunsets Over Monroeville”).
