look up any word, like swoll:
 
45.
A place for a bunch of little 15 year olds who try so desperately hard to be cool and "hipster" (and even openly claim they are). Pretentious people, especially the "Tumblr Famous" who are usually rude when asked questions and are probably just a 16 year old girl who knows absolutely nothing about life and still complains how much their pathetic life sucks on Tumblr. No one cares, and thats why you use Tumblr. For those who try so hard to be indie, listens to crap music, and a minor who has no real life but Tumblr.
How people are on Tumblr:
Post "Yeah my life sucks I have an eating disorder I hate everyone at my school"
Replies: "omg you're amazing i love you don't listen to anyone else!"
Post "I really want to work in the fashion world when i grow up because like im still 16 lawlz"
Replies "omg with your blog you'll totally make it!"

you just won't understand.
Tumblr is life and culture.
It is the epitome of culture and the total antithesis of the modern day pop culture which is so ingrained in today's children. There is no possible way to explain such a phenomenon to others.
You either get it or you don't.

A discrete website for interesting yet random people, where you can express yourself without being judged. You can post whatever you like, whenever you like. Not everyone understands tumblr, so don't worry about idiots from school/work/anywhere to be joining.
Facebook person: I think I'll join tumblr.
Tumblr person: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

It's where all the sleepless hipsters are. Tumblr is where sleep deprivation is a normal thing. Bacon is life. Tumblr people have their own language called sarcasm. Our relationship statuses is always "forever alone". And we're all cats. problem?

tumblr person- *you're oh and its tumblr. Tumblr is a site where you can get viruses, so i think you shouldn't get one for your sake.

Tumblelogs are miniblogs — a fast way to share links, photos, and videos without the bells and whistles of a regular blog.

Unlike blogs, tumblelogs are frequently used to share the author's creations, discoveries, or experiences while providing little or no commentary.
If blogs are journals, tumblr is a scrapbook.
