I haven’t really been posting on here lately, and I’m pretty sure most of you know why. I’ve become rather disillusioned with Tumblr and the people on it. I used to post photographs and old stuff and news articles all the time (check my archive!) but I’ve really cut down in the last few months. It really stems from last summer when I got in a row over a post about the London riots. That caused me to sink into somewhat of a depression (or funk, as you will) where I stopped writing for a number of months, and I never really got back into doing it. It’s basically been a downhill climb from there.
I view Tumblr more now adays with a negative view, poisoned by narcissists, social justice bloggers and people who reblog posts both without sourcing anything or seeing if what they’re reblogging is actually accurate. I mean, that’s the internet in a nutshell, but it seems to be put into hyper-speed here. Where one post can snowball, and before you know it, thousands have read a misleading fact, or some out-of-context statistic.
I guess that’s the ‘future of blogging’.
Maybe I’m just fed up with seeing gifs of Sherlock and Avengers and pointless walls of text that don’t say anything of any importance, but give off the impression that they do.
I’ll post here from time to time, but I’m really seeing a slow and steady decline in how many times I visit the website.
I’ll be around.
