Been thinking about my blog here on Tumblr since I posted about Kottke.org yesterday.
I’ve been writing down words, sharing thoughts, music and photos for 11 years on this Tumblelog, powered by Tumblr.
Tumblr ran independently for 7 years or so and then was acquired by Yahoo about 4 years ago.
Yahoo was then acquired by AOL which is owned by Verizon.
Verizon then combined AOL and Yahoo and called that newly combined entity Oath.
I looked up the definition of the word oath:
It means a solemn promise
So what is that solemn promise Verizon is making to it’s customers.
Are they making a promise to Tumblr and this community?
I really hope it does but they recently sold Flickr to Smugmug which makes me feel like they aren’t investing in their current products and current customers.
And it’s not a great sign when a CEO doesn’t use their own products*
So I don’t know what I’m going to do with this blog. I’ll let you know when I do.
