Ok, yes, I've done a deep dive into Tumblr.


  ::   Wow, there are a lot very young people on Tumblr watching SPN.  One girl (I assume) said she'd been watching since she was 8 years old.  *I feel old*

  ::  As I knew from last visits to Tumblr - a lot of pretty is out there.

  ::  I feel conflicted.   On the one hand, I haven't seen this much online activity regarding SPN in like forever (*mourns LJ*).   On the other hand, I feel disloyal to LJ.   (Does it make it better if I bring stuff back here???)   On the third hand, it's been a long time since I've felt a level of excitement towards SPN and I find myself wondering if it's the very lack of activity on LJ that is helping to bring my SPN squee down?   On the fourth hand, I would think it's hard to make connections in an environment that seems so "sound-bitey" (if that makes sense.)

  ::  And what especially surprised me.  There are a LOT of people who are JUST NOW starting to watch this show.   I was really surprised at the frequency of posts from people either just starting S1 or in the middle of S3 - S4.   Of course they all may be 14 years old.   But still, this much new traffic for the show can't be all bad can it?

  :: And I had to stop myself from chiming in on a post where two people got into an argument because a person was remarking on the fact that SPN filmed in Canada and someone chimed in to say that SPN did not ONLY film in Canada, some of it was filmed around the state of Washington and in Spokane.  Spokane?  Seriously?   And the original person remarked that yeah, she knew that but they didn't have to take her so literally?  :-/    Then there was another post were someone said they didn't know that "Danni & Jen" had been in a movie together.   I feel both old and also like setting up an SPN 101 Primer for Tumblr - like some SPN Crone or Magi on the Hill for the younglings to come and learn all about the history/lore of the making of SPN.

  :: And finally, you gotta know the average age of people on Tumblr is 14 when everyone's theme is taking up only 1/4 of an entire screen with size 5 pt font which is in light grey on a white background.  :/
