The more I joke about starting a "smutlr" tumblr clone for only adult content and that sweet adult ad revenue, the less it sounds like a joke and the more it sounds like I'm waiting for a venture capitalist to call me on my dare by financing it.

@max I heard that PornHub was directly advertising to try to get all of the tumblr cast-offs. So you already have competition.

@doolbneerg I also realize that Fetlife exists. None of them quite have that "I just upgraded my Angelfire site to a LiveJournal somehow hosted on MySpace" vibe that made Tumblr ~special.

Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
