Debunking the myth that Tumblr is only used and populated by kids.
Age Ranges of Tumblr’s Global Audience:
Tumblr sees about 150 million global unique visitors monthly. comScore, an Internet analytics firm, averaged Tumblr’s age ranges over the first quarter of 2014 for both Dashboard and blog network traffic worldwide:
- Ages 13 to 17: 15%
- Ages 18 to 34: 41%
- Ages 35 to 54: 29%
- Ages 55 and up: 15%
"People are often really surprised to note that we have the same percentage of 55-plus-year-olds as we do 13-to-17-year-olds," said Danielle Strle (strle), Tumblr’s director of product for community and content, in an NPR webinar. “But over half of our audience is solidly in the 13-to-34 demographic.”
OLD PEOPLE REPRESENT! [swings cane around like it’s a light sabre. Come to think of it, a cane that looks like a light sabre would be kinda cool.]
[I don’t use a cane. Yet.]
YES! Take that, haters. Solidly in the 29% camp.
Two age-themed posts in a row? I must be getting old. :D
(I’m the only one of my kids’ friends’ parents to be on tumblr, fwiw, but I was also the only one of my kids’ friends’ parents to be on Livejournal, and I was in my 20s then….)

everyone needs a waving snail on their blog
i feel that if I scroll past this and don’t reblog it the snail is going to look to the ground and cry
gotta do it now
I’ve just been emotionally blackmailed by a cartoon snail.
My thighs are huge cuz they’re full of secrets
Wrap them around my ears and let me hear them all
You smooth motherfucker
When people turn to fictional characters,
it’s often because they want an escape.
The stories of these people shelter us from the storm of our daily lives;
they save us,
if only for a little while.
But when we really give in,
let ourselves be vulnerable,
We begin to feel that we know them.
It’s no longer just an escape,
but part of us,
something that makes us who we are.
These characters teach us that incredible adversity can be overcome.
That people can love each other forever.
That life can be an adventure.
That magic can be real.
And even if these miracles have never happened to us,
we begin to go through life believing that,
