In the last few days my reblogs haven’t been showing up on my dashboard, as well as blocking a couple of tumblroos I follow, and I’m fairly certain it deleted a few things I reblogged last night. Is this happening to anybody else?
When I posted my cry for help with my linguistic anthropology class, I got a response from one of my friends and followers, Bren (she’s absolutely lovely by the way, you should follow her) within two minutes. After that, people here on tumblr reblogged it, usually with the words “signal boost!”, asking if their followers who matched the description could help. And it wasn’t just my followers, but strangers who may’ve just seen the tag.
It’s one of those small and largely remarkable things that makes me so glad that I make my home in this little corner of the internet.
Seriously tumblr, for all our sometimes-insanity, you are a supportive and encouraging community, that when given the option to help someone always take it.
This is why I’m here.
