When I started on Tumblr, and my followers were mostly anonymous to me, I felt I could write about anything I was feeling.
Tumblr could be, and was, my personal outlet to vent my fears, concerns, joys, faults, personal shortcomings and misguided thoughts.
That’s what Tumblr was…
Tumblr for me is a personal diary, not really therapy. I do feel I can say anything here, reveal what I’m really thinking and who I am. I purposely don’t ever invite relatives or real life friends here. I have, in fact, told my children that I have a site but have said it is private. Only one of them gets it. I think she blogs here too. I’m happy for that. Tumblr really has helped give me the freedom to write. My husband always said, “write under a pseudonym and you can say anything”. He does that. But when I read his work, I see it still has contraints, like it’s for public consumption.
I am so happy I’m here. I’m quite amazed that this site even exists and that all of you are real. One day I may even go to a meet up (in disguise, of course).
AGREE. i changed my name for a bit bc someone i’ve since written off used what i wrote against me IRL, then decided no, i would be who i was. however, now i can’t be as open bc of the people here. sucks. not often, but when it does, it sucks bad.
