I feel like I’m missing the point on Tumblr – what exactly is it good for? After a few weeks, I’m still struggling to find people who are actually making/doing/saying anything. Instead I’m lost in a bewildering world of reblogs, where I can watch the same damn post spread through my feed, like a contagion. Trying to follow anything back to it’s original source is well nigh impossible. It’s just z reblog y reblog x to infinity. I get the idea of curation, and I found a few feeds where people are scouring the wider web for their content to convert into a Tumblr post. But, in general, they’re not going any further than their feed to find material to curate.
Am I missing something?
