It’s funny (and deeply on brand) how this particular moment feels like the real death knell, after there’s been occasion to declare Tumblr dead pretty much every six months since 2013 for one reason or another. (Closing the NY office earlier this year was the one that sealed it for me.) But for whatever reason, this feels like time for a bit of closure.
Thank you for everything, Tumblr. You got me through my 20′s, introduced me to some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met (and the most amazing people I’ve never met), helped find me a career, exposed me to perspectives that were missing from my worldview, and kept me company so many times in so many ways.
I hope Tumblr continues, in some form, to keep holding space for the countless voices that it does so for as long as the internet is turned on. I’m proud as hell to have been a part of that.
