A few of the blogs I follow are starting to tend towards self-promotion recently. If it continues, I’ll probably un-follow them. It’s not personal. I just prefer not to see certain people in such a light. Physical appearances taint our interactions with others in daily life, while on tumblr, I tend to appreciate the sincerity of opinions, albeit annoying ones at times, that are offered without care or concern for how the person would be perceived by others. Once the whole personal promotion thing gets out there, it becomes a blog of facades rather than sincere thoughts or views. That is often easily reflected in the change in tone and quality of the posts and usually ends up appealing to groupies, which I despise. Hence my aversion to such blogs.
Just thought I’d share that.
