Tbh I find this whole url culture Tumblr’s formed to be less annoying and more interesting. Like it’s just totally mind-blowing and genuinely fascinating to me that urls have developed their own barter system in the Tumblr community. People hunt down urls and keep them to themselves, and trade them for urls of “equal or greater value”. What determines value for a url? On what scale is it being measured, if any? Do people with lots of hoarded urls have more value on Tumblr than people like me who only have the one(s) I use right now? This is really cool I’m kind of excited I’ve finally got a window into this Tumblr black market, I’ve always had glimpses at it before but this is the first time I’ve ever really gotten into the nitty gritty of how it works.
Why do I blog this? Yesterday I found this term “URL culture” while browsing and I find it clearly encapsulates something intriguing about our current culture. “hoarded URL”, that sounds great.
