SUDDEN REALIZATION THAT JEANNE’S // LISA’S DESIGN WENT FROM THIS-
I love how everyone is like ‘save tumblr from yahoo’ but no one is going to mention that facebook also wants to buy tumblr
I mean seriously….
WHY THE FUCK DOES EVERYONE WANT TO BUY TUMBLR!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Yahoo is trying to buy tumblr. Reblog if you are against this!
You’re kidding right? There would we adverts EVERYWHERE. They’d probably monitor it too!
what if we are reincarnated when we die and when we’re babies we still remember who we used to be and that’s why we cry so much as babies, because of how our old lives are gone ..and the older we get we start to forget who we used to be in a previous life.
#And the calm and quiet babies who don’t cry are people who had really bad lives and are just grateful for a second chance
SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
im laughing because every single comment on that article says its a terrible idea. not one person agrees and that’s saying something
Just pointing out that Tumblr would need to agree to be bought

I was looking up the meaning of the colors on the French flag and:
If you watched the episode where Lisa is, then you would understand how much this hurts.
“Hold your ground, hold your ground! Users of Tumblr, my brothers, my sisters! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of fandoms fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship.”
“An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of Tumblr comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand!”
This is for an assignment that is due tomorrow.
Reblog if you think that Harry Potter should NOT be on the banned books list because it features Magic, sets bad examples, and because of dark themes.
Reblog if you think the Twilight series should be banned because it features rape culture, glorifies abusive relationships, and is just a horrible book series overall.
The South Korean government had now realized they were overreacting over something so silly, that they had decided to unban the character, Im Yong Soo, who represents the country of South Korea, from the anime. An episode of him will air during December.
WOW OMG!!!! I’M SOOOOO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!!!! I CANT BELIEVE IT!!! XDDDDDDD
