The Poster genus is an incredibly diverse one, encompassing a healthy proportion of Tumblr’s extant fauna. They populate the undergrowth and the overstory, the tagged regions and presumably the untagged as well.
Tumblr’s reblog feature affords this hugely populous species its means of subsistence. Indiscriminate omnivores, the Reblogger spends its time seeking out posts to reblog. Gif sets, text posts, graphics, videos, memes—anything and everything is fair game. They are an essential part of the ecosystem, forming the bulk of the notes on any healthy post. Glimpsing a Reblogger’s home territory is like seeing the landscape of Tumblr in miniature.
Poster reposteris moves quickly, jumping eagerly from interest to interest. Their blog may not be the same today as it is tomorrow.
They are not very vocal; rarely will they add extensive comments in captions or tags.
They delight in volume: when they reblog, they reblog A LOT.
Their home blog is a comfortable nest, built up through years of effort, layering post over post.
