WordPress’s Daily Post tackled something that’s been on my mind of late:
Lately I realize I’ve a habit of saving quotation images and creating my own from across the web and my Kindle ebooks. I’m doing them so often now that all my gadgets have plenty quotes and quotation images stored. I always want to share them and sometimes I do so on my Facebook but frankly no one really cares over there – it’s just not the right medium. On the other hand, over here it sometimes seems rather weird and unsuitable to post really short blurbs or other people’s words.
So… to use or not to use Tumblr?
I still hate the reblog feature and don’t get the fascination with writing in tags – if you’ve opinions then just damn well write them, my god instead of doing this under-the-breath thing – but minor quibbles aside, I’ve decided I’m gonna give it a go. I’ll post quotations from blogs – mine and others – and write-ups I like, a random mix.
I guess it’s a space that’s more suitable to fulfill the wishes of the reader in me. So if you’re interested to know what I’m reading, or what piques my interest, or simply the kind of words that other people throw out into the world that touch and move me – maybe there’s finally a suitable platform to share them. I really don’t care if there are reblogs and likes (or not), it’s more the sharing that I genuinely enjoy doing so yeah, hopefully this crossover will be fun?
Is this a thought experiment? A social-media-expansion-slash-experiment? More mental diarrhea? Simply in the good name of sharing?
Honestly I’ve no idea, but… why not, I’m just gonna quit over-thinking and give it a shot. Less talking, more doing? We’ll see how long this lasts.
Rejoice, the first quotation I published there! (I’m still reading the book)
A word of warning: I’m kind of obsessed with Haruki Murakami (like you can’t already tell…) and his prose-wizarding skills – he is strange and writes equally as strange, but no one can deny he has a way with words – so there’s likely gonna be lots of quotes from him specifically. Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you… *smiles innocently*
You can find me on Tumblr here.
PS I love you as it is for sticking around here (thank you) so don’t worry about not diving into that side of the pool; blogphilic is home base. My write-ups will only appear here so you’re not missing out, but if you’re game – maybe I’ll see you there!
