Anonymous said: Hi: I hope this isn't rude but could you say how old you are, or give a ballpark decade? I ask because I feel horribly old to be on tumblr myself and am curious if you are around the same age as me (born in the early sixties).
I am a bit younger than you — I’m actually the average age for a tumblrite, 34, though I’ll be 35 come Saturday :D
But you are not alone! There are far more people out of their thirties than you think. As my friend spiderine keenly points out, people over a certain age a) cause a lot less fuckin’ drama, so they’re less noticeable, and b) don’t often reblog “reblog this if” posts, making them more difficult to tally. But I personally know of many people on tumblr who are as old or older than you.
Plus, I mean, If you’re in your forties or fifties and you’re on tumblr, you’re fucking hip, right? You are on the cutting edge of social media out here in the wilderness, be proud of your youthful and elastic brain.
