You either know what it is or you don't.

Tumblr should not be talked about in public or to people who don't have Tumblr.

Tumblr is freedom.
Me: *typing* Today I heard someone mention Tumblr in a public area, I weep for the future

a hipster watering hole aka a too-indie-for-you blog.

chances are you already have one or else you wouldn't be searching for it here.

mostly filled with filipino bloggers who mostly blog about pictures of triangles in space.
they like to use internet memes, most commonly 4chan memes, and claim it as their own.
1. blogger: 'FFFFFUUUUU' should be tumblr's catchphrase because we made it up and made it famous lolol

That's what everyone will say about it.
You don't speak of tumblr at school,
with your friends or family.

Tumblr.com is a place for you to get away
from reality.

You'll regret asking anyone you know to join it.
If your homophobic, you won't last long on tumblr
considering most people on tumblr are either gay,
bi, lesbian or support them.

You can say anything you want on tumblr and not get
judged for it because most people will feel the same way.

Facebook is very judgy.
Tumblr. Is completely different.

There are super cool blogs, and you should check them out.

If you like something, press 'Reblog' (it'll be on your blog)
or the heart. (its like the facebook like)

Reblogging is a way to put the picture/audio/quote on YOUR blog but give the original person who post it up credit.

Also, there are really cool themes for customizing.
You can also add music to your blog.

^^ that will give you all the extra features.
you can figure the rest out.

but when you sign up,

the url will be like this:

___(whatever you want)____.tumblr.com

you can make your url really cheesy and cute like
(btw, these arent real blogs) :


or straight up like your name:


be creative, and have fun!
(these are real)

fuckperiods.tumblr.com (perfect for pmsing girls!)

tumblr4men.tumblr.com (funny pictures of messing up cheesy pictures!)

diaryoflittlesecrets.tumblr.com (really cute quotes)

a place for hipsters to post picures and gifs about hipster things. common subjects: girls backs, hands with lots of jewelry, vampire weekend, arcade fire, kissing, naked people, weed, pretty girls smoking, harry potter, celebrities from tv shows particularly skins and gossip girl and other artsy photographs.
I am so addicted to tumblr, I just can't stop reblogging pictures of pretty girls in front of a sunset wearing denim shorts and bracelets smoking weed.

A place where you can express yourself, where no one will judge you. You can reblog anything you want. You can tell your followers anything. Its basically a place to vent, and for whoever will listen. It's very time consuming, because it's more than amazing. You'll find yourself on it more than talking to people. and hanging out with friends. It's a place to be free.
Tumblr person: I love tumblr. It's the only place I can be myself.
Other tumblr person: I know. I wanna keep mine forever.
