What has tumblr done for you with regards to your work?
Tumblr is a great place to find inspiration. I found a lot of photographers and other artists that I admire and look up to, and it is the best motivation to keep going even when you feel you’re not creating anything good. Using tumblr is also very easy. I started my blog when tumblr wasn’t half as big as it is now, so there was zero pressure (as opposed to, for example, flickr or 500px) and instead of focusing on exposure and popularity, I just focused on doing good work and improving at my own pace. I like to believe it worked :)
