SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
reblogging again for this ^
Hope this doesn’t happen!
Hell no. This can not happen

Do NOT stress okay!! One binge will not ruin any progress or cause you to gain any weight! The worst thing you can do is stress over it and make a big deal out of it! You need simply move on. Just pick yourself back up and keep going!! If you let yourself stress and get upset about this then chances are the binging will continue because you will be disappointed and upset! Just move on and keep yourself going!!
You should not weigh yourself the next day - you probably consumed a lot of sodium which will cause you to retain water and the scale may look a bit higher. But if you get yourself on track, drink lots of water, and exercise then your weight will go right back to normal! So do not be worried if you happen to weigh yourself and it is a bit higher right afterwards!! However, you really shouldn’t weigh yourself afterwards or frequently anyways! The scale doesn’t matter guys- you are all beautiful and the scale doesn’t measure your worth!
No - you should NOT purge!! Not EVER!! I get asked this a lot- it really surprises me! But purging will do you no good! It is not good for weight loss, health, or anything!! Do NOT do it! Purging destroys your health! It is bad for your throat, stomach, teeth, and esophagus, and it can cause ulcers, mouth sores, swelling, broken blood vessels, and much more!! It is not worth all of the negative effects and it honestly will not help you! Just get yourself back onto the healthy path!
You definitely did NOT ruin all of your progress! As I said above- you may gain water weight but that will go away! And if you get back on track you have nothing to worry about!
Do not fast! Fasting/restricting is such a bad idea! Especially after a binge! Restricting often causes binges. Typically when you restrict, if you mess up then you feel guilty and binge again, creating an awful cycle!
Do not ever hate yourself for binging! Do not give food the power to make you feel that way!! Everyone has slip ups and you just gotta make the best out of it and use it as a way to keep you from doing it again!
If you feel sick after a binge try doing something relaxing and drink some water! You will feel better soon!
You are NOT a failure!! You are never a failure and you should never feel like one after a binge!! Everyone has slip ups- nobody is perfect! The best thing you can do is move on and not let yourself feel like this! If you turn this experience into a good one and deal with it well you will make your self so much stronger and more disciplined! Just be proud of yourself for what you do right and never dwell on mistakes-just learn from them!
AND NEVER EVER GIVE UP! You are worth it ! And so is your health and happiness! You will definitely pull through- it may not be easy but you will make it! I don’t care if you binged once or if you have binged everyday for years! You can overcome this!! It is never too late ! You just have to believe in yourself and find support! Everyone is capable of it and deserves it! Stay strong everyone you’ve got this! xx
