Dear Tumblr, A Fond Farewell. Love, WPT
To our 40,013 loyal Tumblr Followers,
We’re celebrating our five-month anniversary and 2000th post with a big change!
First of all, thank you! It has been wonderful to be a part of this community and be a liked, reblogged and followed by so many. The support of the Tumblr family has been enormously important to our website’s popularity and we cannot thank you enough for sharing WPT with your friends and family.
In order to provide you with a more interactive space, however, will be switching over to our own network. Tumblr has been a great host to us over the past five months and we will be sad to leave such a user-friendly site and vibrant community.
In the new site, we have tried to integrate your suggestions and consider your feedback. Thank you for your comments and please keep them coming! The NEW When Parents Text will have fancy features, expanding sections and continued hilarity.
We hope you understand our move and will join us over at the new www.whenparentstext.com
Keep visiting! Keep submitting!
