Tumblr was just not cutting it as a blogging platform. I imagine a blog as being a place where a user can share thoughts and opinions. Very rarely did I see that in the form of text posts on Tumblr. Sometimes a simple image can capture a moment perfectly and that appears to be the mentality of most Tumblr users.
As a source for images and animated gifs, Tumblr is amazing. I will continue to use it for that reason alone. The novelty blogs available can be hilarious with my personal favorite being the Same Picture of Dave Coulier Every Day. I just think that a blog needs to be a more substantial than just a feed of images. More specifically, a blog should host original content. From what I have experienced on Tumblr it is just reblog after reblog.
Now I am here. My recent statuses on Facebook have been far to long. If a post is too long for Facebook then it is too long for Tumblr.
