There’s a reason that we all have blogs on here: it’s the perfect way to self-express. We’re all suffering with something I’ve just figured out, namely knowing that we’re each the 7-billionth person on a planet of white noise. It bothers me sometimes. So this is why you always see question lists reblogged, and why everyone wants anonymous messages and asks. We’re always looking for the chance to tell our own stories, to show how good our taste is, to open up and prove our individuality. Even if it’s to strangers who sometimes don’t care. This is why, if anyone wants to know about us, our Tumblr is just as good of a place to start as our Facebook profile. It’s why Tumblr has been such a success, because it appeals to that inner, unexpressed identity.
I think it’s a beautiful thing that I can open up my own blog (where of course I’ve seen every single post at least once) and be entertained for hours, because it’s a manifestation of me. And what could be better? We’re all writing our own book, and it’s being published line by line here on Tumblr.
