I was one of the few people who didn’t freak over the Tumblr Panic of December 2018. I had the main one, The Edge of Vanilla (which I found amusing to turn into The Reds of Vanilla, in which every post had something red in it).
Also on the list was Tiresome Tropes, which featured snarky commentary on stereotypical tropes used in Femdom porn, and then a few others that featured various degrees of explicitness and kink.
After the Tumblr Panic, I switched to just reblogging tame, SFW-ish captioned pictures, and just allowed the other blogs under my account to run out their queues. That’s why I was surprised to see this morning that my entire account (along with half a dozen other blogs) have been terminated. Tumblr has not yet given me a reason, but after my initial ten minutes of annoyance, I stopped caring.
The most annoying thing is that I had a queue & draft cache of a lot of captioned, recaptioned, and originally captioned pics that I wouldn’t have minded saving, but hey, it’s not like it was the library at Alexandria.
A lot of people have moved over to NewTumbl.com, and BDSMLR.com, but ironically enough, I find them to be *too* BDSM-ish; every picture that runs across my dash is pretty explicit. Plus, the diaspora haven’t quite settled and set up shop yet, and both platforms, while visually resembling Tumblr, have not yet made the jump to an easy mobile browsing experience – at least, not for posting, queueing, etc.
If I can get my act together, maybe I’ll start posting the non-explicit captioned pics here, since WordPress seems to have stabilized, and has a decent mobile app. I suppose I could create yet another email account and open up yet another Tumblr just to reblog the ones that show up here.
Or maybe I’ll just indulge in some friendly cultural appropriation this weekend, and have a pitcher of Margaritas on Sunday, and wait until the next Tumblr appears.
EDIT: Apparently I’m reinstated; one of my reblogs from the queue contained a link to some possible spam site. I guess it’s time to save all the content and move it elsewhere.
Mrs Edge says that it could take a very, very long time to recoup our investment.
OK, so now I’m imagining if your content were in the Library of Alexandria…
