Welcome home.

Tumblr: home to your new favorite artist. Come for the effervescent digital paintings in every flavor of fandom. Stay for the breathtaking original offerings of those same artists. And, in between all the art: Old internet energy. All the fandoms you could wish for. Enough memes to knock out a moderately-sized mammal. Add to it or simply scroll through and soak it up.

Every piece of life-changing art you discover, every waterfall GIF you gaze at in wonder, every quote you reblog, every tag you curate—that’s all you. Reblog them to show the world who you are, what you love. You’re the explorer. We’re just a map you all keep on making. Welcome home. Make it yours.

If you’re an artist, you’re coming in hot to a community that will love your work. Think of this as your online studio with many options: A portfolio, your calling card for your creations with in-built social engagement and community, or an online drawing board, a place to hash out ideas, share sketches, and gather feedback. Take requests and commissions or join art challenges like Goblin Week, Mermay, Julycanthropy, and Yeehawgust. Discuss the finer points of your favorite brushes. Create OC art for your favorite writers on Tumblr. Sell prints (coasters! mugs! tchotchkes!) of your work—to an audience invested in you and actively seeking these things via our Artist Alley. Create a webcomic (have you heard of Heartstopper? Started here.)

Now picture all of the above, but on the go. That’s what this is.


Chances are if you’ve seen it elsewhere, it probably started here. That digital painting you can’t stop thinking about. That text post explaining the exquisite specifics of something you never realized you needed to know. Your dashboard will become a tapestry of all the wonderful, nonsensical, fantastical things you like. Whether you post, lurk in likes, or reblog to your personal online fridge. Whatever your community, you’ll find a ready-made home here.

When you have something to say—a hot take on the finer points of a Virgo moon, Barbie fanfic, an image of your turtle Harold that you simply *have* to share with the world: Shoot your shot with a photo, a video, or a text post. Make an audio post of your ramblings or share your current favorite song via Spotify. We even have a pre-set chat post for all your incorrect quotes.

The reblog starts conversations for everyone, creates jokes, and continues them—sometimes across the world and over the years. Time and space, right here at your very fingertips. Whatever you choose to send into our effervescent digital ether, know that it can, and will, go anywhere. (Unless, of course, you use our post-level reblog controls. Private blog? Private post? All possible here).

Tumblr is the home of fandom. We’ve all got that one special blorbo from our shows. There’s fanart you’ll want to stare at, reblog, stare at again—or create yourself, and share with the community. You can read your favorite ficcers from ao3 *and* see their OC art on Tumblr *and* discuss the finer points of lore with them. Pokémon? Got it. Marvel? Here. Kpop? Check. Supernatural? Of course. Minecraft? Ready and waiting. Star Wars? Yes! Doctor Who? Doctor YOU! You get the idea: it’s all here.

It’s a whole universe out here. If the prospect of creating, reblogging, shipping, and curating feels a little daunting, head over to tips.tumblr.com, where Cat Frazier of animatedtext.tumblr.com will take you through the finer points of Tumblr etiquette—the effervescent, the eeby, the deeby.

So. Sign up, fall in love with some art, follow some tags, and find your place on the dashboard. Then reblog, like, and post to your heart’s content. Or simply drift through the dream you’ve created for yourself—you hold the keys to this kingdom.

I love Tumblr, the hellsite I will live and die on but seriously man, stop breaking stuff when adding or changing things nobody asked for. The recent changes have broken reblogs which a lot of people need. The amount of blank/p*rn bots that pop up and post the most graphic stuff so we constantly having to block them and why, OH WHY have quick and easy log in screens like discord or Facebook. Stop trying to make it look like these everything else and give us random things, fix what we want AND GIVE US WHAT WE WANT.
Otherwise, again, love this hellsite

Please do not change your image viewer, please do not remove access to previous tags, please do not remove custom blog themes and most importantly, please do not remove your reblog chain feature. I'm literally begging you. This is the unique identity of tumblr and many of your users, including myself, stay and use your site/app for this very feature.

We do not need another tiktok, we do not need another twitter, we do not need another facebook or instagram-we need tumblr to be just tumblr. You're throwing your early users under the bus to attract new ones when the majority of your demographic are the former and they are the ones who are keeping your site afloat. I've been using your site since 2012 and stayed despite all the bad decisions you've made since, but I will leave if these features are implemented and I'm sure I'm speaking for most of your users. Tumblr currently is a haven from all the monotony of other social media platforms because these features make it personal and highly interactive; they make it fun. Take those away and you're nothing, and you will be just like the others.

What the hell are these changes

I have been using tumblr on and off for about 7 years, and i’ve enjoyed a lot of it. tumblr is a unique social media platform that really helps foster community and friendships. but the changes that have been happening recently/are being planned are ruining this site.

the most important of these changes being collapsable reblog chains. by changing this feature tumblr will be getting rid of what makes it tumblr. they will fundamentally change the site and the way it has been and is being used, which completely negates the point of it existing. if i wanted this feature, i would go to twitter. conversation will be discouraged and communities will be shattered, and tumblr will cease to be the tumblr we all know and love.

its changes like these and the addition of tumblr live being forced upon the community that are really discouraging me from using tumblr. the devs arent listening to the userbase, and are only alienating us further with every new change they’re currently adding.

this isnt to say we dont want changes. there are many features that are sorely lacking and neglected. the video player is buggy and the volume on sound and video content is difficult to control and customise, to name one.

tumblr needs to start listening to its userbase, otherwise they’re going to find themselves without a userbase at all.
