the reason why I don’t blog here as often as I’d like.

Now, there are several reasons why I find Tumblr more fun than WordPress, or Facebook, for that matter, and they do not include the fact that Tumblr is “in.” I’ve said this before, in my old WordPress blog.

First of all, it’s so easy to post anything–links, videos, photos, quotes, words, and [my personal favorite] songs–because posting these things is what the site is about. It’s not about, primarily, meeting new people and gaining friends. It’s not about, merely, updating statuses and liking each other’s words. You do these things, yes, but in a creative manner. You find another user through his or her post, and you sort of update your status by posting something. For instance, if I put up an audio post, that could mean I’m currently addicted to the song and I want to share it to others, or I’m in the middle of a music challenge. In a creative or different manner, see? Not always in words.

Next, users are free to like and/or reblog posts. Now the reblogging phenomenon is one of the most enjoyable things I’ve ever come across, so I do it a lot. Mostly, though, I just “like” posts, because if I reblogged everything I liked, my blog wouldn’t have a sort of personality. Plus some of the stuff I “like” wouldn’t look nice on my blog. I’m… sort of vain that way. 😀

Next, still, you don’t get lonely on Tumblr, if you’re following a few people and a few people are following you back. It sort of reminds me of Multiply in that aspect, actually, because on Multiply you have contacts and you see their posts too. In fact, Tumblr is sort of a modern kind of Multiply. Hmm.

Moving on, the themes on Tumblr are so numerous and pretty, I must have changed mine (my blog’s theme) ten times. You can preview them, much like here on WordPress, but you can customize them too, like change the background color, or text color, or mouse-over-link color, and you don’t even have to know CSS or HTML.

But really, the biggest reason why I’ve been spending so much time on the said site, is because Tumblr is filled with a huge number of aspiring, and actual, writers, and it’s very interesting; people use Tumblr to publish their little poems, songs, essays, or short stories, and when they gain followers, they know they’ve got readers. I made Graphikos because I was inspired by those writers I found. It’s given me a place, an area in cyberspace, where I can contain all my poems and short stories. They need not be brilliant–heck, they probably aren’t even close; they need not have so many followers–the last time I checked, I had about five (and I’m not even sure), including myself, on my other blog. Pathetic, you say? I think not. You see, it drives me to constantly create something, to mold together nouns, pronouns, verbs, and whatnot, so that the blog will stay alive. It urges me to want to write creatively. Through it, I’m able to practice, exercise my brain and ability to string together words not yet strung…

Who am I? I’m an aspiring writer, like everyone else. I’m a frustrated writer, like everyone else. And Tumblr? God! It makes me happy!


Bad Company.

I’m listening to them now. Someone on Tumblr uploaded Burnin’ Sky, and I suddenly missed the band. I saw them live when I was 9–they were playing at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. It was my second concert (Starship was the first).

I can’t believe I never imported them on my iTunes until now. There are a lot of songs I like that I don’t really save on my hard drive because I feel like I only enjoy listening to them when my dad plays them. But Bad Company’s songs obviously aren’t a part of that group.

I’m currently listening to If You Needed Somebody. This song just made my day.

If I could hold you tonight, it would last me forever
But the time’s never right, when will we be together

This day was a blur. I spent so much time sleeping that I wasn’t able to do anything academic. Or filial.. Sucks to be me.


Help, I’m alive.

So I’m back at wordpress. After I left my old wordpress blog for Tumblr, I am actually back here.

I guess I miss having someplace to rant/curse without worrying what people will think about me. And although you can probably figure out who I am by clicking the links on my sidebar, I think this blog will make me feel anonymous still. At least my name is not explicitly published here. At least I don’t have any mean “followers” who would be sure to read anything I post. Ha!

Yeah, man, I’m back. For good.
