As you may have noticed, my 'check out my Tumblr' sidebar thing is gone.
That is because my Tumblr is gone.
No more Tumblr. I made a post yesterday saying it would be my last, and it was. This morning I went into my account and deleted it. Which was a serious process. Tumblr gave me like three chances to turn back.
Why did I do this?
A lot of reasons.
1. Tumblr, as you may or may not know, is a horribly LIFE-SUCKING website. Its constantly updating with new posts. You could literally be on Tumblr for the rest of your life and not run out of new posts if you follow enough people from enough different time-zones. I'm not even kidding.
2. I was neglecting this blog because of Tumblr! I'm sure you've noticed...I hadn't made a post yet this month. And believe it or not, I always liked this blog better than Tumblr.
3. For a long time I've been praying about my Tumblr, about whether or not I should stop going on or unfollow a bunch of people. I gave it up for Lent, and my life was actually a lot rosier. Tumblr was actually stressful for me, and it took up SO MUCH TIME. I could be on Tumblr for two hours at once time, and usually I should have been doing something else. Praying about it, I finally just accepted that I kept feeling like I should delete it because I SHOULD delete it. It was keeping me from growing in holiness. It had to go.
Tumblr is a great website, but for a person who doesn't have much self-discipline, it can be a black hole of mindless internet surfing. *DRAMTIC MUSIC*
I decided if I didn't get rid of it completely, the distraction would always be there.
So, here I am, dear Blog! Back again to stay!
