A mystical place originally created for sharing pretty pictures. Now, it is overrun with fandom blogs run by (usually) teenage girls obsessed with fictional characters and actors old enough to be their fathers. This website also serves as a place for people to share their complete and utter apathy towards everything. Lastly, some people go on tumblr to pose serious philosophical questions. (Examples: Does bread care what kind of a sandwich you make it into? What if birds aren't singing and their screaming because they're afraid of heights? What if nipples grow faces when you're asleep and when you wake up in the middle of the night it's because they were talking too loudly?)
Normal Person: Oh, yeah, I have a tumblr!
Fangirling Blogger: There are people who have a tumblr, and people who HAVE A TUMBLR.

A blogging social network site for those who want to express their opinions and be entirely themselves. Many fandoms are found on tumblr such as Harry Potter, Starkid and Glee. It's a place where people are't judged. Those with a tumblr also know not to talk about tumblr to those who don't have a tumblr. It's not a 'fashion trend' it's a place for people to be original and themselves with their followers who they don't necessarily know in real life but find some common ground with.
Facebook person: So I heard that Darren Criss guy is coming back to Glee for season 3?

Tumblr person: Yeah I found that out a while ago.

Facebook person: But I only saw it on one of my friends' statuses today. How did you know?

Tumblr person: Can't remember. Google or something. *in head - tumblr tells me EVERYTHING*

Mostly known by the general public because of "hipsters" and it's also where "planking" began.

Tumblr is the most amazing website, designed to bring lovely people together. Those who had tumblr before it was cool will know that it is "the easiest way to blog" and the most incredible website ever known to man, woman, animal, etc.

So basically, on tumblr, you follow people and I guess you want people to follow you. Then on your dashboard you see everything that everyone you follow posts. You can then "heart" or "reblog" a post that you think is rad. Reblogging will put the post onto your blog. And giving it a "heart" makes it go into a little section called "liked posts" which is pretty much a collection of the greatest things you've ever discovered on this site. However, nobody but you can see this collection.

Tumblr will either:
A. Ruin your social life, school work, friends, family relations, sexual relationships and even relationships with pets. (Take over your life)
B. Make you feel horrible about your body because your bones don't stick out enough.
C. Annoy the heck out of you because you can't figure out to use it.
D. Be the best thing that ever happened to you.

OR all or a combination of the options.
"I really love tumblr but I can't stop going on it. I'd rather look at pictures of cats then play with my real life cat, so my cat gets angry at me. "

Tumblr is a blogging site that is divided into two main factions. The hipster side and the fandom side.

The hipster side is riddled with your average hipster, blogging with pictures of nebulas with song lyrics, or posting pictures of "hipster" fasion.

The fandom side is however, the side you want to be on. It is filled with fangirls and fanboys, and people who never sleep. They'll be nice to you, and help you with depression if you ask for it. There are many roleplaying blogs and ask blogs here that have great admins.
Note: If you ever send hate to anybody on Tumblr they will viciously attack making you regret it. Everyone will try and find out who you are if you're on anon, and if they do find out who you are you will probably be bombarded by hate.
