How Tumblr Changed My Life - alleynomi
by alleynomi Tumblr is my therapist, my lover, my drug, my muse. I have started to write again because of tumblr. I can’t wait to get home after work, get on the computer and pour out all my emotions into a post. When I wake up in the mornings and before I go to bed at night, I scroll aimlessly through my dashboard and I truly love all my followers, they are my best friends. I even...

How Tumblr Changed My Life - gotagirlcrush
by gotagirlcrush Who knows how we originally started following each other on Tumblr (I remember Andrea posting awesome mixes and music recommendations). We were reblogging each other’s posts a lot when one day we decided to start an email conversation and eventually became internet pen pals! We didn’t actually hang out in real life until March 2010 when Andrea was visiting NYC. After...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - thisismyfavoritesong
by thisismyfavoritesong I met a girl through Tumblr. I was a fan of her blog, she was a fan of mine. I lived in Los Angeles, she lived in Brooklyn. We started messaging. Then emailing. Then texting. Then video chatting. Then we met. One and a half long-distance years later, she showed up at my doorstep in LA and asked me to marry her. We would never have met if it weren’t for Tumblr.
How Tumblr Changed My Life - kyerabianca
by kyerabianca My mom (thelmabee.tumblr.com) introduced me to Tumblr. Yep, my mom. I was a 17 year-old living in Manila, Philippines totally content with being on MySpace when, one day, she told me about some blogging site that was, and I quote, “going to be the next big thing.” I checked it out and quickly signed up. My first username was forkeeps. In the latter part of 2007, my mom...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - guitarmanjb
by guitarmanjb For most of my life, I’ve struggled with anxiety, particularly about new experiences (new schools, moving to a new state, etc.) But I didn’t realize how bad my anxiety could get until the countdown to college began. Around the same time, I started using tumblr more regularly and have made some incredibly close friends, closer than people I know in real life (and some of...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - learntolikeit
by learntolikeit My best friend Amy lives nearly 100 miles away, and without Tumblr, I would not be able to talk to her on a daily basis and I am pretty sure I would go a little insane from my boredom. Amy & I lived together for 2 years in university, and since moving out and graduating 8 months ago, we have had our own Tumblr blog to keep up with each others crazy lives. I have moved twice...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - tomorrowisperfect
by tomorrowisperfect I have always been so alone. Always searching for someone to talk to. Anyone at all. Any willing, trusting person but out here in this little old town in Ontario, not one person seems to be trustworthy. Here, on tumblr, everyone seems to be ready to listen. Most smart people here have always said ‘Talk to me if you need help. I dont carer who you are, come talk to...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - dailyoddcompliment
by dailyoddcompliment Nine months ago, I created the Tumblr blog, “Daily Odd Compliment.” To date, it is the smartest decision I’ve ever made. With only one unique post a day from Monday thru Friday, this blog was able to reach 1,000 followers in six months and 2,000 followers in eight months. But it’s not the amount of followers that’s made an impact on me;...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - courtesyflush
by courteseyflush I moved to New York in late 2009, leaving behind all my family and friends in Miami. I wanted to figure out a way to keep them in the loop about what I was doing and where I was going without having to write lengthy emails. I turned to Tumblr and aimed to put a quirkier spin on the usual ‘pictures of my food’ or ‘pictures of buildings’ blogs. I had come...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - menino-poeta
by menino-poeta English: First sorry for the English, because I am Brazilian and I used the translator, so I posted the text in English and Portuguese. Portuguese: Primeiro desculpe pelo inglês, pois sou brasileiro e usei o tradutor, por isso postei o texto em inglês e português. English: The tumblr has changed my life, no doubt. When I made a tumblr, I had no notion of how it worked. And after a...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - mocknjay
by mocknjay Before Tumblr, I knew nobody who was interested in the same things as me — I was labelled as a freak as well as numerous other names, and I went along with it. Then, somehow, I found Tumblr and I found people who shared common ground with me. I made friends, something which I struggle to do in real life. I’m still making friends, and they’re all such amazing people. People...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - kamelo
by kamelo I started a 365 project to post in Esperanto (a language I was learning) at least once a day. This started a few other individuals to do the same as well. Soon I found an entire community of Esperantists here on tumblr to follow and to read posts and get practice not only writing but reading from others. The tagged searches (which I can save) also enabled me to constantly find new...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - ninefortysix
by ninefortysix I’m not really sure why I started using tumblr. I think it was somewhere between followng my favourite artists and being enticed by the simplicity of it. But over the past few years that I have had an account, tumblr became a part of my life, even to my own confusion of how that happened. I can’t say that I’m the most physically active blogger, but I always find...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - iamearroyo
by iamearroyo First of all, I’d like to thank Tumblr for giving me the opportunity to share with others my thoughts, ideas and expressions. So, thank you tumblr <3 What does this “crazy” community means to me? Well, I firmly believe that the tumblr community has a huge collective of beautiful members who every now and then, impact the world somehow or another. In Puerto Rico...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - redefiningbodyimage
by redefiningbodyimage Tumblr has provided me with an opportunity to create positive change that I probably never would have had the opportunity to be involved in without its existence. From the moment I joined Tumblr, I became familiar with a community of feminists and body positive activists who inspired me to create my own niche in a sea of empowerment. And as a designer, I respond strongly to...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - renovatiolucis
by renovatiolucis Tumblr is not an option, but an answer to that “”other”” sharing app. Tumblr provided a simple way to share, what to me, is quintessentially inspiring - photography. After 20 years of professional video production, I’m back at the beginning where I started - photography. When I leave this place - I’ll still be sharing, and hoping that...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - letterbyowl
by letterbyowl Tumblr has changed me in many ways, I can’t even remember my Internet life without it. Tumblr has been my place to meet new people who have the same interest as I do. I’ve meet a few new people here and there and they come from different places in the world, and it makes the world feel a little smaller. Tumblr is also my place for information. Most of the people I...
How Tumblr Changed My Life - lostsplendor
by lostsplendor Two years ago, I was sitting in the library during finals week while one of my friends convinced me to join Tumblr. Initially engaging as a procrastinatory measure, I soon found it to be an accessible way to collect and share my interests, both personal and academic. Throughout my conscious life, I’ve always maintained an unwavering interest in History. For the vast...
