I was up late last night reading follower bios, you guys are so interesting and cool! I know I don’t follow back a lot, it gets too overwhelming, but I do pop around and read, and I have some subscriptions in RSS so they don’t show up as follows. God I sound like a celebrity, ugh!

Anyway, my meds, my red tide, and my semi-isolation are making me very sappy and emotional and I LOVE YOU FOLLOWERS. And I want to know how we came to be together on Tumblr, plus I figured out how to do an ask post, so here we are, with this timid question:

ETA I see you sneaks liking the post and NOT ANSWERING. As I am on a deadline, I need validation and distraction. Although if you follow me for a bad reason, that could be interesting.

Why do you follow me?
