I love Tumblr…big big love. And I like that you can like or reblog something without commenting on it, because, like, not everything needs commentary…not everything needs to be analyzed to be amplified.
But when I post original content (specifically blog posts or videos) I really like to know what people think about those things…and more than just the sliding scale of “how many notes did this get.” I want deeper information than that, and so I’m always diving into the notes to see what people say when they reblog stuff, but mostly, people don’t say anything.
YouTube comments are great, but one of the things Tumblr is really great at is facilitating a broader public discussion. And I’m not saying people should go out of their way to comment on a reblog, nor am I saying that there aren’t often lots of good discussions, but I just dove down about 200 notes deep on this thing that I posted and didn’t see a single additional word associated with any reblogs.
Is Tumblr becoming (or has it always been) a place where you define yourself simply by the things that you like, and not by the things you say and think? I know some people aren’t comfortable sharing themselves like that, but it’s almost always worthwhile to say something if you have something to say.
I guess what I’m saying is that the internet is a two-way street…we are all creators…I don’t ever want to lose that.
So TMBG posted this picture of Clarissa on their facebook page last week, I noticed I had the same poster. So…then this happened.
It occurs to me only upon looking at this photo that a great deal of who I am was informed by Clarissa Explains it All.

Hank goes through terrible reasons for not voting and explains democracy with a metaphor involving Twihards and Whovians.
