⇒ fembotz

I didn't think I was on there enough before to ask people to follow me/for your own tumblrs, but I'm on it pretty much every day now... more than I am on LJ, tbh. :/ Anyway, I figured it was time. Pls let me know if you're over there, I need more variety on my dash! I originally made this tumblr to post GG graphics to a fan community that moved from LJ to tumblr, and so my dash was, like, all Gossip Girl and TVD for a long time!

ETA: Okay ppl are following me, but I don't know who 80% of you are! Tell me if your tumblr name is super different from your LJ name!

I'm pretty sure we already follow each other on tumblr? Really just here to say that fembotz is an awesome username.

Ha, thanks. I was addicted to Body Talk when I made the tumblr so I kind of stole it from that.

And yeah, we already follow each other!

I don't have a tumblr, because apparently I'm an 80 year old.

You should get one! I think part of tumblr's popularity rn is that most ppl aren't using their personal computers as much anymore b/c of smartphones and tablets and it's just a better blogging experience for those platforms, sort of how like twitter took over blogs in a way. Kind of sad to watch but inevitable I suppose...

Good point. Hmm...maybe. I do like gifs. :D

Makes one why blog sites like LJ aren't better with making their interface and websites work better with smartphones. (Or are they? From my own experience, not so much, since the LJ site is a bitch to navigate on my phone.) Neither twitter (140 words or less) or tumblr (gif central) fulfills the type of thing a blog can do, even if they are taking over it.

LJ's phone interface is terrrrible, and so is wordpress's IMO. Tumblr's old app is decent and they just released a new app that I've been meaning to download, not to mention that the mobile interface itself loads easily and works pretty well. And twitter was made for mobile devices, so.

Neither twitter (140 words or less) or tumblr (gif central) fulfills the type of thing a blog can do, even if they are taking over it.

ITA! And the formats are somewhat limiting IMO. Picspams and art have changed so much since tumblr was around! And it's difficult to use tumblr socially, to have discussions. And it feels like they do it on purpose, they don't seem to want a real commenting functionality. But then I think back to LJ, especially early on, and how bad it was in so many ways, how difficult it was to find people, to find things people had posted. Once upon a time there were no tags, and there is STILL no search functionality unless you allow Google to index your blog (which is both good and bad), and it definitely wasn't the perfect platform, but fandom managed to repurpose it for our uses and obviously it was good for journaling, which is what it was created for. But onward, I guess. :/

Let me know if you ever join up on tumblr so I can follow you back!

When I do it'll probably be something really unimaginative like...bellesbells. D:
