Switching to Blogger

Who would've thought I'll be back in blogging? Blogging, as one of my favorite pastime before, has finally come back to my senses. After a long time of  being idle, I'm back but with a different platform.

I started using Tumblr since April 23, 2010. That time varieties of social media were staring to rise & made to use for public (& let's not forget about wifi!!). I already have Facebook & Twitter that time, but most of my friends were still not aware about Twitter. Browsing the internet had become my addiction & since I already have my very own laptop that time, I had no limitations. Like seriously, I can use the internet first thing in the morning even w/o washing my face or brushing my teeth. That's how my vision got blurry, thanks 2010 me!

I never knew that Tumblr was for blogging, well to be honest I don't have any ideas what was blogging that time. Reblogging  was what I did in my first months in using Tumblr, but after a year or two with Tumblr I decided to create my own posts. I discovered lifestyle bloggers & they became my inspiration to switch my Tumblr blog into a "real" blog from being only a "reblogging" blog. I've shared a lot of memories & made new internet friends. Tumblr is the reason why I got so clever in codes, html & etc., it's also the reason why I listen to my Computer subject when I was still in highschool. 

A time came that I didn't open my Tumblr due to busyness to school, a blog burn out & a lack of ideas on what to post. Although most of my free time I still visit blogs just in case my blogging sense comes back to me but unfortunately it didn't. I was on hiatus for months, I even lost my tumblr friends because of that.

After being addicted to Tumblr, I was on Wattpad making stories. I saw a famous wattpad writer using a blog named 'Weebly', and not long after that I made a 'weebly' account to put my stories there. I didn't realize that Weebly was a blogging site that time, but it exposed me on editing like how we customize blogspot now. But I didn't leave Tumblr, I was so loyal to Tumblr that I said to myself I wouldn't change to any other platforms even if it's hard to customize a Tumblr profile.

   Maybe the reason why I stayed w/ Tumblr is the reason why I'm leaving it.

Am I too emotional? Haha! I apologize, it's just that Tumblr has been with me through hard & happy times. I bond w/ my Tumblr almost one fourth of my life, I may had those breaks that I didn't use it but it helped me w/ my problems, well not literally though... Haha! But this time I need a (platform) change. I will not deactivate my tumblr, but my main blog will be this blog from now on.
