thanks for tumblr, a platform i have grown to love over the 6 years that i’ve been here.
i understand this is your project and i’ll understand if you sell it. but i wanted to point out, you left money on the table when it came to me.
i’d have paid a small fee to have a “no-ads” dashboard. you could have added all the ads you wanted ($$) and i’d have given you money ($$) to have them not show up for me. money in your pocket both ways.
i also would have paid a small fee for premium features ($$). all that time wasted on trying to get me to not use ‘missing e’ could have been put to better use asking me to pay a small fee ($$) for a better user experience within tumblr itself.
there are several other ways you missed making some solid dough on a tumblr fan such as myself, but i think the point is made.
you left money on the table with me. i hope you don’t do that with yahoo, or whomever you may sell to.
tumblr is a neat place. you did something really great in creating this software. however, we did something great in being the community that used it. you made tumblr worth something, and we’ve made it worth more.
good luck and thanks again.
