However, I’ve decided that in the future my posts will be more rambling, and more pointless. I think part of what I don’t like about the older posts is that they are sometimes arguing a point or something, but my real point (or my intention, at least) is just to share some kind of idea or thought, not convince anyone of anything.

I think the problem is that traditional platforms are too much for most people. They are confusing and odd in many ways. And they put this heavy expectation on the writer to come up with a long form post. 

The magic of Tumblr is that it gives you a hall pass to share short form posts or whatever you care about. And it does so with grace.
