Tumblr, I want to like you. I am determined to do so, in fact. I am already on board with your name, even the missing letter! Shine-on-you-crazy-diamond and so on. But I wanted to add a fancy background to my page and you won’t let me.
Look, I know we’ve only just met, but you need to know this about me: I’m a bit of a fancy lad. I like things to look, to use 20th century parlance, “neat.” And I tried, in vain, to upload about six different background patterns, and nothing happened. Can you imagine how that felt? I mean, I was mortified. Is it my fault that I invited several friends and family members and two potential bosses over to my computer to watch a fancy background pattern being uploaded to my Tumblr? A case could be made. A case could be made.
But the issue remains. And now here we are. My first verbal post here, and it’s about images. WHAT A PIECE OF WORK IS MAN AND ALSO TUMBLR!
