So, the talk of the town is the tumblr apocalypse, and I could talk to you about it for a long time. It hurts queer people. It hurts sexworkers. It hurts everyone.
But other, smarter people are having this conversation with much greater nuance. Tumblr is a platform I never quite meshed with for one reason or another, so I don’t have a lot to say about it besides that I did promo there, met some cool people, and tried to get more people to know about my Discord channel (Mind Control Literature — join now if you’d like!) but that’s about it.
So mainly I think we should all be working to find ways to support those harmed by the tumblr collapse.
I’m on twitter, and you can find me under @carin_mcleoud and @madamkistulot –I recommend following only the former if you can only chose one. I post a lot more there, though you’ll get a fair bit of shitposting.
I’ve heard pillowfort, dreamwidth, and reddit are all places that people are going to. The Secret Subject has a reddit that allows promotion, and you can find it here: The Hypnobunker. Tell them the Madam Kistulot sent you.
Nah, just show up and have a good time! 🙂
This is a good time to remind people that FOSTA, SESTA and Apple are all factors you can look to for tumblr’s problems. Apple’s fear of adult content encourages platforms to not have adult material. FOSTA and SESTA are both things supposedly for sex trafficing that hurt everyone else–especially queer people and sexworkers.

That’s all there is from me today. My poor sweetie Chelicerate is sick today so I’ve been working at taking care of her a bit but this month seems to be going well! I’ve hit over a million words written this year, can you believe it?
Until next week, take care of yourselves, and each other… and let me know if you see where all of the MC community is going!
