A tumblr checklist to avoid the worst

This is a reminder that you should not post your precious original content only and foremost on tumblr or any other free platform. I’ve chosen tumblr.com as an example here, because of my experiences with it.

The 3Dx community loves tumblr. Every day new 3Dx accounts appear on the scene, reposters as well as creators. The reasons are simple, tumblr is free, looks cool, is easy to handle and there’s a huge community. It feels great to receive likes and reposts quickly.

Long story: I was a tumblr for many years, joined when it was brand new, and i liked it.
