If all you do is reblog and don't have any content of your own to add...
You’re only showing that you have nothing to contribute. Your blog isn’t even yours, it’s everyone else’. It’s okay to reblog some things, but EVERYTHING? This is why I follow the people I follow (a little over 100). I love what you guys have to say and post. I mean, that’s what I feel like a blog is supposed to be. Sharing your thoughts, opinions, frustrations.. etc. Not everyone else’.
Venting about people on Tumblr who reblog 80 things a day without even making a comment about how it makes them feel, or what they thought about it.
This article is definitely worth a read. Where are the surge of activists from two weeks ago, now?
I mean, it was only two weeks ago when almost every white person I knew was tweeting about stopping a brutal African warlord from killing more innocent children. And they even took thirty minutes out of their busy schedules to watch a movie about dude. They bought t-shirts. Some bracelets. Even tweeted at Rihanna to take a stance. But, a 17 year old American kid is followed and then ultimately killed by a neighborhood vigilante who happens to be carrying a semi-automatic weapon and my white friends are quiet. Eerily quiet. Not even a trending topic for the young man.
