I've mentioned the website Tumblr before, but I didn't really think that I would have anything to say about it. Last time, I didn't mention that the account is actually shared between Sissi and I. A while ago, I was writing a story (similar to this, but only focused on certain types of events), and one (now ex) friend told me that I should make the Tumblr account to keep any readers (haha, only my friends, who I had to actually tell) updated about when I would post it and such.
I eventually stopped posting the story online and took it all down, because the site was having a lot of trouble with plagiarism. I wasn't so much worried about the story as I was worried about the poems I had also posted, but I didn't think that I should take any chances. But I kept the Tumblr account because I had nothing else to do and they have some really, really beautiful pictures on there, along with some sweet people. I'm 99% sure Sissi forgot about it though.
Now, I am by no means "Tumblr famous". I have roughly fifty followers on there and while I love them to death, they never send me messages. Ever. That's okay. I understand. No big deal. I just think it's awesome when somebody reblogs something that I posted.
However, a few days ago, I logged in to see that I actually had an anonymous message waiting for me. I prepared myself for the worst, since usually the writers behind such mail are rather cruel. (Click the above link, if you don't believe me.) Then I saw this:
Anonymous asked: I love you and your posts, but i think you need a new layout.
I replied with: Well, thank you for the compliments, but the layout isn't going to be changing anytime soon. If it does, it will be because that is what my "sister" and I agree on.]
For some reason, this is really fucking hilarious to me. Every time I think about it or look at it, I can't help but crack up laughing. I don't know why it's so funny. It just is.
Don't get me wrong, I love the compliment part of their message to me and I do appreciate them, but to me it sounds like, "I love the stuff you reblog from other people but I hate your layout". It seems more like they were trying to be nice about saying my layout sucks (which is doesn't, thank you very much) rather than that they actually like my blog.
But hey, I still think it's hilarious.
