A lot of people are talking about this article on Tumblr.
I read a lot of articles on the internet, and I don’t have time to read everything I’d like to. As I begin to read an article, I quickly evaluate whether it’s worth finishing or abandoning in favor of better things to read.
I stopped reading this article here:
Nothing posted on a tumblelog is original content. Tumbleloggers are a bunch of people sitting on the internet, expending just enough effort to click a button on their bookmarks toolbar and typing in “Awesome, found on Digg.”
Without elaborating past the point of boring my readers, that’s far too ignorant, short-sighted, and generalized to lend any credibility to this author whatsoever. It’s not worth my time to finish reading an article from someone who actually believes that.
