Breakup Letter: To Tumblr

8 Comments

Tumblr – Uhhmmm, how do I say this…

I’m leaving you.

I’ve been a faithful Tumblr blogger for 2 years, but to be honest, I’ve always wondered if there was something more… something, something more fulfilling…

So yeah, I looked around. I read other blogs and looked at layouts. If it makes you feel any better I didn’t look around a ton because, well, I did feel a little guilty.

But then I met WordPress.

At first it was innocent. I mean I only blogged there a couple of times because that’s where my husband wanted our Vienna blog. But by the second post, I could tell my feelings and devotion were changing.

Ugh, don’t look at me that way. If your Dashboard wasn’t so cluttered with GIFS and reblogs and photos of nature maybe I would have stayed. But we both know you’re not going to change, not anytime soon at least.

I’ve already setup my new blog site on WordPress so if you need me you can find me there. I’ve moved all of my blog posts over to my new site as well so I’ll be leaving for good after this post.

Cheer up! We’ll see each other every now and then via HelloGiggles, The Daily What, my friends blogs, etc,. You’ll find someone else – I know it. Someone who loves How I Met Your Mother GIFS just as much as you do! It’ll be great, I promise. 

Ok… Guess this is it. Take care of yourself. See you around.

  1. I wrote a similar breakup letter to Facebook. Here’s to something more.

    • I’ve also thought about writing the same letter to Facebook. My problems are more about the app than they are about Facebook itself, but I’ve definitely promised to be a more dedicated Google+ user.

  2. Poor Tumblr. I don’t like it much either.

    • Yeah… It’s cool and all, but I was always infuriated with the bizarre-o HTML and frequent “whoops, the post you just spent hours making perfect has suddenly disappeared and there’s no way you’ll get it back” happenings so, a breakup was coming no matter what. Sorry you had a poor experience also.

  3. Will Tumblr be reading this?

  4. Um, I’m not sure. I haven’t found one but I could be wrong?
