I had this great idea and acted on it. I sent David Karp a letter representing all 108 million of us who post our blogs on “Tumblr.” I use WordPress as my blogging platform but have automatically uploaded each of them to Tumblr for the past 16 months.
David Karp is a young man, a young rich man now, who is only 26 years old. Seven years ago, at the ripe old age of 19 he started Tumblr. He was designing web-sites at age 11. He never graduated from high school because he was already making big bucks. He sold Tumblr Monday for 1.1 billion bucks. It’s hard to get one’s head around a billion bucks.
I can get my head around the .1. The point one stands for 100 million dollars. See how that works out…each of us who have supported and posted our blogs on his tremendously successful site could be awarded with just the .1. He can keep the billion bucks I can’t get my head around. The .1 will give each of us a simple one million dollars and we will each say “Thank you very much.”
I know it doesn’t work out exactly even, but I would just leave off the last 8 million folks who started posting to Tumblr. Only the first 100 million may apply.
The rest of us early birds get the worm…all 100 million worms.
You all may thank me later when you cash your checks.
Your Tumblr buddy, Bako Heat.
