TUMBLR HAS BEEN DOWN FOR TWO DAYS NOW!! I am so worried.. ;__;
...Haha, I feel like this is the equivalence of me turning to an ex because of an AWOL significant other. XD /lame
But yeah, no, really. I never thought of WHY i liked tumblr so much until now. What makes it so addictive?
I've thought up of a couple of things -- I miss my followers, I miss the people I follow and their blog entries, I miss seeing what my friends and lambs would blog about, I miss the random nonsense that would appear on my dash (dem memez~)... but, no, i really do miss the people i follow. I tried to find some of them on deviantART, on Facebook, anywhere else, just to tell them that I miss them. Another thing I miss (specifically on GressenhellerUniversity.tumblr) is... well, posting up LAYTON ART (and Layton everything else)!! ...And hoping to whatever that my posts will go up in the number of "likes" and "reblogs".. which i depend solely on my followers for. XD Because I feel like... If i post up someone's art work (while giving the original artist the credit they deserve), I'm also somehow spreading their works to a bigger audience. Like, a LOT of people like Wredwrat's or Reka's Layton art... even a few particular artists on Pixiv whose names escape me (or because I can't freakin' read Kanji) have a sort of popularity they may be unaware of because their artwork is just really REALLY ridiculously good. And most often than not, their styles in art are consistent and there are some people that go, "Wow, that's amazing fanart.. the style is definitely the same as this/that artist that I like," or whatever. So ... I feel like, the more I spread their wonderful works around, the more "fame" and appreciation they get.
I mean, yeah, there are HUUUGE cons to that -- like the chance of art theft and what not (which is something i would NEVER condone).. and i'm not sure that having good intentions is enough to excuse that part. But at the same time ... isn't fan art also a huge contributing factor to their respective fandoms? Isn't SHARING fanart the artist's goal? ..Haha, I don't know, is this making sense? :'D
Another thing I miss (again, specifically on Gressenheller) is REBLOGGING!! I LOOOOOVE reblogging. In fact, according to Tumblr Cloud, a little more than half of my blogs are reblogs. In fact, I blogged about loving to reblog once.. X'D I talked about how ... I like reblogging quality Layton posts that don't seen to have any notes (reblogs/likes) to it. Because when I reblog it and if by chance the post explodes in number of likes/reblogs, then I feel like ... I not only did i help spread around something great, but I also feel like I'm promoting the original blogger of said post. I really do feel like it's like "spreading the love". In NO WAY do I mean to make myself feel better about myself or to boast that it was ME ME MEE who made the post rise to its burst of popularity.
But mostly, I just like ... seeing people's reactions to w/e i decide to post/reblog. Mostly on Gressenheller but really on EITHER of my blogs. Whether is a "Wow..!" or a "THIS!!" or "HAHAHAASFKJH" or "wholey shit! *Q*;" or even a "... w-what" ... or anything! I think I just like any sort of feedback as long as it's... appropriate, I guess is the word. I feel like I'm giving them something.. or w/e. :'B
... I also like that Tumblr concept of "micro-blogging".
Haha, Sorry Xanga. I feel a little bad talking about how much I like Tumblr and why whilst blogging to you.
Just know that you'll always have a special place in my heart... :')
