People give Tumblr a lot of slack. It has maintained its reputation as being a cesspool for 13-year-old fangirls to scream about Misha Collins, even though the website has changed a lot in the past ten years. I stopped using Tumblr regularly in 2014, so my concept of it is a bit skewed toward that time period. However, Tumblr has some hilarious gems that are worth checking out if you’ve cast it aside.
Tumblr has a lot of qualities I look for in a social media platform. It allows and even encourages long stretches of text in posts. Comments are pushed to the posts themselves, and the best ones get recirculated, creating some of the most iconic moments in internet history. Tumblr has its own culture, and it doesn’t allow rancid places like Twitter to bleed all over what they’ve so carefully curated over many years. If you love Tumblr, take a trip down memory lane with some iconic Tumblr posts.
