    I don't know if this article has been shared here as it's fairly recent (couldn't find it in search). It's a pretty good read that describes how some teenagers were making money off of Tumblr (and how they lost their revenue). I think it might resonate with a few people on here.

    I absolutely enjoyed that article. I agree that I think teenagers are morons. And I'm not going to stop thinking that. As a whole, they are idiots, and nothing will ever change that. However, some of them are extremely smart. These kids fell into the same trap most marketers fell into. But the fact that they made $52,000 in one month off of tumblr - ngl, that's impressive.

    I never understood tumblr. And after reading that article I realize it wasn't for me to understand. These kids figured it out and monetized it. For a few years they were King of the Hill. That's more than most online marketers can ever say.
