My Other Happy Place on The Internet

Apart from this little blog of mine, I have another world of my own on the internet and it’s called Petrichorials. It’s a Tumblr photo blog and that is where I reblog photos that I like, quotes, poems, music and sometimes I post my personal writings there as well.

I was 15 when I first discovered about Tumblr. That’s where The Wallflower Secrets even started. When I moved on another platform, I couldn’t just abandon my own space there. So, I made it into an inspiration blog where I can post anything I want. The people I met there might have left already but that doesn’t stop me from posting. After all, I just blog for myself. It’s just nice looking at photos after a long day. It’s my happy place and sometimes, this is where I draw inspiration to blog, to write, to create something.

This blog reflects my mood. When I’m sad, I reblog sad photos and quotes and when I’m happy, you can sense it as well. Right now, you can tell that I am happy and in love.  Petrichorials is kind of personal without letting people know the exact details of my life, if that makes sense.

My Tumblr blog has been my creative/emotional outlet for years. And I don’t think it will ever stop.


Do you still blog there too?

    I recently moved to blogspot after being in Tumblr for almost 7 years. I am still contemplating if whether I should continue posting there or altering it into a reblog blog. It’s sentimental and has really been my place of comfort through the years, and I am having a hard time letting it go. I am not regretting the move I’ve done but .. I think you know my dilemma, hehe.

      I see what you mean. What I do is, I just convert it to a reblog blog but I sometimes shae my post here on there as well. So that you can get more readers or maybe if they can relate, they will click it 😀 Love your new blog btw 🙂

        Thanks! BTW, if you don’t mind my asking, what does Petrichorials mean? I’ve been curious, hehehe.

          Petrichor is the smell of the ground after the rain. So I played with that word and I came up with Petrichorials since I want my tumblr url to have one word only. 🙂

    I still have my tumblr up. I visit/update it once a week or every other week and you’re right. It’s kind of a personal blog without being too personal. That makes sense.

    I love Tumblr! I stayed there during my long hiatus from blogging, although mine isn’t nearly as pretty as yours. I tend to reblog silly fandom stuff and meme. I wish I could have an aesthetic, but it doesn’t exist. :’)

    I still blog on my other tumblr, I actually have three, but one is not published yet. One is the sister blog to my lifestyle blog, and the other is my main blog which consists of photos and such. Haha! xD Tumblr is definitely filled with inspiration. And I love how your blog matches your other blog! The color scheme is very pretty. 🙂

    Waaaah! I missed my tumblr account already and I would probably go back to blogging there as well. Reblogging lang naman dun eh. Ang maganda lang sa tumblr, you could communicate with your viewers and faves eh.

    Yes I still have my Tumblr blog! It has become a photo blog since it’s connected with my Instagram account so all of my IG posts are there. I still reblog some stuff as well. And just recently I publicized my WordPress posts so it’ll automatically publish on my Tumblr blog too. 😀

    I miss the old Tumblr days! <3

      I miss it too! But we need to grow as a blogger 🙂 I often forget to post my wordpress posts there. It’s a great idea! 🙂
