TUMBLR

A scrapbook of stuff I'm reading / looking at / listening to / thinking about...



Do you post things on Tumblr that you know your followers will be interested in or do you post for yourself and the followers, well, follow? I guess what i'm asking is who are you blogging for?

In 7+ years of blogging, I’ve always figured if I stick to posting things that I’m genuinely curious about and interested in, it might not attract the largest number of people, but it’ll attract the right *kinds* of people—the people I’d want to hang around because we share common interests. And I figure if they dig what I’m linking to, they might dig the stuff I make, too. It’s worked so far…
