Default The Hobby and Tumblr

Hello everyone

I would like to discuss the broad topic that is our Hobby on Tumblr. I myself have a Tumblr and from what I have found there are a lot of good Hobbyists online creating some wonderful content. However it seems to be very isolated. I think it would be great to have some sort of centralised way of finding these great blogs, much like the Youtuber community has.

What do you think?

If you have a hobby tumblr, post it below. Lets get the ball rolling on creating something together

I use tumblr to harass, intimidate, and generally troll social justice warriors.

This, I tried it briefly, but after SJW tried to invade my comics and argue about a medium/hobby they didnt care about until a few issues came to their attention I largely gave up.

To this day I remain admant that Spider Woman variant cover wasnt degrading to women it was a bloody homage to one of the most iconic Spider-Man covers/poses god damn it!

on Tumblr nothing and no one is safe from the SJW's taking things to far. all the time.
I am curious about your comics tho, where they about anything specific? and could I please see the Spider woman cover? I'm a bit of a fan xD

once you get past the SJW blogs, the porn bullshit, the spambotblogs, and the blogs purely made to make other people upset. there are some pretty cool people and artists on Tumblr. you just have to find them.

there is certainly a lot of potential. but there is just way to much trash to sift trough to get there for a lot of people, and for obvious reasons Tumblr tends to have a bad rep for a lot of people on the internet.

I personaly feel better off having a plog over here

Oh no, I'm not as bad as they are. If anything, I'm performing a public service because these people are angry, vicious asshats who are creating a reactionary radical right which is just as dangerous as they are. If you actually introduce these people to academically verified fact, they tend to shut up, and we're all better off for it.

I tried using tubmblr for the hobby but found the groups on Facebook to be more interesting and engaging so I mainly use it for the same thing scscofield does now days.
