So I haven’t posted any art in a long time, mostly because I’ve felt like it isn’t worthy of posting. But that’s dumb, so I’m going to try and post at least one sketch a week. To try and get going again. So here’s just a few sketches to get started. Thanks to everyone who’s still stuck around!
With a population of only 330 people, Aka Island is one of the most beautiful and secluded places in Japan. The beaches feature healthy coral reefs, with plenty of diverse sea life. Between January and April, Humpback Whales can be spotted not far from shore, as they come to breed, and in summer, turtles come to lay their eggs on the sand. Kerama Deer are a unique species of deer that also live on the island.
Guest houses rent bicycles to tourists, providing a great way to explore the forest further inland on the island.
Hi everyone! I’ve had this blog for a little over a year now, and it has made such a huge difference! I remember feeling overwhelmed when I made this blog, so I thought I would make a little welcome-to-the-community guide for those of you who are looking to make a study blog of your own.
Why start a study blog (aka studyblr) in the first place? Because you want to be motivated to do better in school, want to find new ideas, or just because you like pretty stationery. There are a ton of good reasons to start one, so go for it!
What do I have to do to be a studyblr? Make a blog and follow some other study blogs. That’s pretty much it. There are no GPA requirements, supply lists, or complicated rules.
how to start a blog
You can either start a whole new blog (make a new account), make a side blog, or start posting study tips from your current blog. It all depends on your personal preference and how much you use the blog you have now.
Your url is an important part of your blog because it lets people know what you’ll be posting about. Your name + studies is a common url to see, but you can get more creative if you choose!
I suggest avoiding tumblr default themes and instead finding one you like from @theme-hunter. If you don’t have any experience with coding, you can pick up the basics you need to install a theme from Youtube.
After you have your blog all set up, make a post introducing yourself. Include a little bit about yourself like your name, grade level, major (if you have one), interests, and tag your favorite blogs so that they can help get the word out about you!
connecting with the community
Message/send asks introducing yourself to other blogs. It’s easy and it works, study bloggers are usually really friendly and welcoming!
Enter blog of the month or blog awards to get your name out there.
Send random asks, just because. It makes people smile!
creating original posts
You don’t have to make your own posts, but it helps to get your name out there and it’s nice to be able to share your own study tips.
For pictures, try posting your notes, study setup, or favorite supplies. Good lighting and editing with an app like VSCOcam will make them more appealing and get more notes.
Making masterposts is my favorite way to create content. Think of any topic that you know about or would like to learn about, and write out a post of resources or tips.
Canva is a great free site for making graphics
Tag your posts with relevant tags like #studyblr #studyspo, as well as the urls of different blogs as people will usually reblog posts they have been tagged in.
making your blog work for you
Above all, having a study blog is about improving your study habits.
Create a good tagging system so that you can find posts later. It should be simple and easy to remember (this post would go under #masterpost #new studyblr #tips for me).
Find a study buddy or group to keep you motivated
Reblog only things that you find inspiring, regardless of how you think your blog should look.
Start the 100 days of productivity challenge to stay accountable
Install a site blocker so that you can log off and focus!
Welcome to the community! I hope that you find it as beneficial as I have, and I look forward to meeting some new faces!
Jyn didn’t think much about Cassian after he left her. Yes, she had a few bad moments at first, felt shattered for a good long day, but she quickly understood what he was: not the selfless, talented, purposeful man she’d thought, whose unyielding conviction made it all seem worthwhile, but passive, blindly obedient, as pliant and ruthless a tool as any stormtrooper. So she forgot about him, or something like forgetting.
(Partisan!Jyn + fusion with Persuasion, written to the Chaucer meme [seven sections of seven sentences each] to keep it under control. Inspired by this Persuasion AU, which I love; it got me thinking about how the inverse, with Jyn as Wentworth and Cassian as Anne, would work and… this happened.)
I can be your angle… or yuor angle… bc i cannot be mean // I have seen so many pretty peeps today at the dghda meetup tag that i might just cry?? And I RB the post so here is My Face I look so tiny!!! Please forgive I am a Tiny Guy // SO YEAH I love Dirk Gently?? All the characters are so Amazing?? I might just cry //
i like to think that my dwight has just been in the entity’s realm for so long he’s grown super abrasive…..
yet still gets these internal tugs from his original self (aka wanting everyone to get out alive) and at last minute makes really bad decisions which cost him his life in exchange for the other three survivors to get out :^)
see, that’s a tricky question
in my experience there are two sides to IT Tumblr: 1. *actual* italian Tumblr aka weird hipster kids that mostly post in italian and are obsessed with grunge/pastel aesthetics and romanticizing mental illness and either pretentious indie singers or obscure rappers = dramatic fake deep teenagers, they scare me a bit
2. “‘international”’ italian tumblr, aka people that mostly blog in English and have various kinds of fandom/aesthetic/other interests blogs but we usually all bond over shitty politics, shitty discourse (Dante is fanfiction/sicilians are POC and such), Medici, Eurovision and national memes = literally 99.9% great people, hella chill, hella sarcastic, socially aware while still being critical of black/white us centric sj thinking. love them all
