I’m not going to be deleting my blog, but that’s admittedtly because I stupidly set up my shop’s blog as a sideblog, and not as its own account.  But Tumblr is doing nothing positive for me.  I’m pretty sure I’m being actively ignored by the part of the fandom I want to interact most with, and my latest post to try to find new followers was a pretty big indication that the sort of things I want aren’t going to be found on Tumblr anyway.  So, whatever.  I’m done.  It’s not fun anymore, and I’m going to try to find a way to get my sideblog moved to a primary through some form of bribery or whatever it takes.

But it’s just incredibly disheartening to look at my follower count.  I’ve got about 1000 followers, which is about 950 more than I ever had on LJ.  And yet, there are only about four or five people who even seem to care that I’m posting anything.  My social interaction on Tumblr pretty much consists of shouting something into the void, and the refreshing for an hour, going, “gee, I hope somebody sees my post this time.”  At least on WP, I know I don’t have any followers, so knowing that nobody cares is a lot easier to deal with.  But that is what it boils down to.  Nobody cares.  It’s pretty plain at this point, so I no longer care.  This post will get six views, and maybe one like from an external source, because that’s what all my posts that aren’t fic notes get.

And it’s the same with my fic, tbh.  Even worse, because I can see on the stats how many people are actually looking at it.  But the only reason the comment count on any of my fics is as high as it is is because I respond to people and try to spark up conversations.  Not that it ever works, because nobody wants to talk to me.  I want to finish these fics, but at the same time, I don’t see why I should.  If nobody cares about them, why am I bothering?  I’ve got better things to do with my time, and I’m starting to wonder why I even come back to try to finish these WIPs.

This is funny, normally I'd write to the author in hopes to start a conversation and then nothing would happen. Where have you been all my life?? :)

I haven't met anyone new through Tumblr. I met people at a convention and we've followed each other on Tumblr but that's it. Anyone who says Tumblr is a social platform is smoking the good stuff....

I think I'm already as Pacific Northwest as I'm going to get since I live in Alaska. :) The good stuff has been legalized in our state, now we just have to wait for them to finish figuring out how much they'll tax us for it.
