Tumblr and the Older Blogger


I really enjoy this thing called Tumblr. David Karp was on to something when he and his team started this social blogging platform. The number of people here with varied interests is amazing. Creating a sense of community here can be fun.

Being an “older” blogger here can be a interesting experience. My “about” on my blog says I am 40-something. This fact led me to ask the question, can younger and older bloggers find common ground and have a shared experience that brings them together. How much in common would someone in their early 20’s have with a person in their 30’s, 40’s and lets say 50’s. Tumblr has a large younger demographic. However there are many of us who skew older than lets say 18-25.

I enjoy my time here. This platform can be open to people of all ages, races, orientation and interests. Blogging can keep you younger and can keep you relevant in today’s changing world. What are your thoughts on this?
