because i can tag my posts how i want

anonymous asked:

please don't tag your fanfic #therapy. That's not what the tag is for and no one in the therapy tag wants to read part 58 of a random fanfic

Please don’t tell me how to tag my posts. 

I kept it out of the first five tags so it wouldn’t show up in other places. It’s not my fault Tumblr put it there anyways. I will tag my stories with what’s in them, and there’s ther//apy in this chapter.

By the way, if this pops up in the tags again, it’s because of you and not me. It’s not too hard to ignore a post. If you want you can block me so I don’t pop up at all, but I’m not going to remove the tag. 

She’s the betta half of the two

I saw a few people in my recent tags asking HOW and one kind sweet user asking what bears the most money so I’m going to share my success story. I’m tagging @alice-elizabethscott , @xxkalleexx , @drunkenwhaleer , and @seismitoadsbutt,    cause I saw y’all in the notes There were a lot more but they were anons

SO Y’ALL WANNA KNOW HOW TO DO THE THING? LEMME SHOW YOU

You will need a game year, roughly 928 Starfruit seeds, the greenhouse, 6 iridium sprinkers, as many kegs as you can possibly craft, 157 casks, your favorite music, and a LOT of patience.

I’m putting it under a readmore because hot dang it’s a long post. It woudln’t be as long but I wanted to put pictures in

Hey guys, my Conspiracy crew, can you do something for me? For yourselves? For literally everyone on this site? Please don’t fight with strangers on the Internet. After all these years I still don’t understand why we’re doing this. There are SO many people on this site that don’t like what we have to say and you know what? That’s perfectly fine. Don’t fight them. Don’t call them names. And you know what else? Don’t stick up for yourselves when they do it to you. Yeah. I’m suggesting you take it.

Everyone on this site is trying to have fun. I get dragged all the time but I’ve never once, not once in a year on this site, engaged someone who vehemently disagreed with me. Anyone can check my blog, you’ll never find an example of me 1) attaching myself to other’s posts to disrespect them 2) publishing hateful anons 3) Calling anyone names 4) giving the microphone to people who don’t like me. It’s not hard.

I once lost 40 followers in one day a few months ago because I stuck up for a Sheriarty blog who, I believed, made a good point. And you know what? Good. I didn’t want those people on my blog anyways.

People are going to attack you all day long. Stay in your own lane. Use the appropriate tags. Don’t take everything personally. We’re here to have fun. How can you possibly have fun arguing with strangers about a TV show? Block who you need to. Avoid certain tags.

People are going to read your blog. They decide if they like what you have to say or if they don’t. The choice is always theirs. No need to assert your ideas to people who don’t agree with you or don’t like what you have to say. Those who want to listen, they will stay. And, honestly, most of those bloggers you don’t like will leave you alone if you leave them alone.

You don’t have to listen to anything i just said, if you don’t want to. This is just a suggestion. But I’m having a great time on this site because I get back what I put in.

Hey there!

This is a new blog, hell yeah! I made this tonight after concern about recent hate and negativity I’ve seen being spread in all types of tags and making its way to people’s inboxes in the fandom SO I decided to counteract that that with a positivity blog! 

What will this blog function as?

  • Essentially you can send in a url and a kind message about them or whatever positive message you want to give them!

How will they be posted?

  • I will be posting them as separate posts on nicely typed images because all the lovely people deserve nice things <333

Anything we should know?

  • Be patient with the posts as they will each be individually typed out, formatted, and posted.

Who the fuck are you?

Anything else?

  • Love and respect others and don’t put hate and mean stuff in tags. It can really ruin a persons day!
  • Be positive and spread kindness!!
  • Help spread the word about this blog!!

Been seeing a bit of discourse over the fact people think shipping Link with anyone is wrong because he’s (mild spoiler) probably 15 or so like it’s mentioned that Zelda is in a memory.

Realistically though if Link functioned like a real human, needed to sleep, took time to recover, couldn’t die and come back etc; it could take him years to gather all the shrines and save Zelda.

He’d be older by the time he got any leisure time to spend with Sidon if he kept at his quest for a few years diligently. Plus I don’t see either of them rushing into something especially when Link is a mostly silent guy, it would take them a lot of time spent together to even build a close friendship let alone something more.

At least that’s how I see it, kinda wish people would focus more on real issues instead of policing people’s fictional shipping choices. I’m sure there are people out there purposely shipping this problematically but I don’t appreciate when people lump me in with them just because I ship something in my own AU way.

As I’m sure some of you have seen from my previous asks and posts that I advocate for fictional freedom, but that does not mean people should be putting shipping content in the main tags. Be aware not everyone enjoys the ship, it can be a struggle for new blogs wanting as many notes as possible to not put it in the main tags but you are making non shippers uncomfortable and bringing negative attention to the ship.

Never really talked about it this way, a convo made me think: how much are people aware about Wakfu and its fandom? How many people feel lost, confused, out of touch. Some don’t even know what Wakfu is, although it’s mostly what I post here.

So let me explain and tell about the tumblr Wakfu community a little! \o/ Like it’s my own home and I show you, here’s the living room, kitchen here, bathroom here. x’D I’m one of the oldest fandom members that are still active, and my blog receives a decent user flow, so I thought making such a post would be fun and helpful.

A standard introduction: Wakfu, along with Dofus and several other products, is a part of cross-media called Krosmoz, vizualized by the super talented french guys, Ankama.
Cross-media is: several animated series, short animations, a film, comics of many different styles, and, of course, games. I’m primarily on the gaming side of the community, though I watched (and rewatched) all the animations. Here you can find and watch/read most of the media for free. Other titles can be easily googled.

What initially drew my attention, is this trailer. It was my “door” into the Krosmoz universe. Ankama’s visual style is just flawless, they had me the moment I saw it. So, if you’re hearing of Wakfu for the first time, give this trailer a shot.

If you’ve been around for a while but feel there’s no fandom or it’s too tiny or scattered, check out the Wakfu tag. It’s still alive, even to my own surprise.
When I joined in 2012, there was something like a cozy family that played the mmo, roleplayed and talked about their characters. Those people are mostly gone by now, but they made the best first impression for me. Lately, there was a noticeable activity increase and new user flux, so I thought it’s the right time to make such a post. The tag lives again, yay! \o/

Everyone’s up to their own business, but sometimes you see a few posts tagged as Sacrier Saturday and such on. I saw people being confused and asking what’s that, uh.. It’s just an unspoken tradition started by hell knows who. :D A fun, silly little celebration.
There are, to my knowledge: Masqueraider Monday, Toddler Tuesday, Feca Friday, Sacrier Saturday and Sadida Sunday. (psst you can come up with another day idea)
They’re unofficial, fan-driven, recurring mini-events. You draw, talk, post any type content about a certain thing on a certain day. Visit the respective tag to see others’ stuff and feel good, that’s just it. <3 

Recently I had a talk about artists, how barely visible they are. This post’s initial purpose was to actually give a spotlight to my favorite Wakfu artists, so that they can get the love they deserve, and people can find more cool creators to follow.

Off the top of my head. Mid to high quality art, those who post at least once in a while. There’s actually more awesome peeps and hopefully you’ll find ‘em. C: You can reblog and add your personal favs!

If you’re not okay and want your name removed from the list, just message me >////< I wanna spread the love, you guys make me happy whenever I see you in the tag. You might not even know how much I adore your arts and OCs because I mostly never crawl out of my shell and communicate. Let this post be an exception. I love your stuff and you’re the best. <3 Keep rockin’!

dream-hotel  asked:

Do you think you could not tag your posts with rupi kaur because I dont really want to see a white guy when I look for feminist poetry 😬 I dont see how you can call yourself a feminist and promote yourself using a woman's name

Hey Hannah

Interesting take, by your logic a white male cannot be a feminist. I am in social work so I believe in equality for all. I promote this in my practice as well as in my writing and life. Being raised by a single mother who suffered at the hands of a sexual abuser most of her early life this is important to me, as I have no only seen the bullshit she has had to deal with, but the strength she had in dealing with it.

I tag my poetry with Rupi Kaur simply because our poetry is similar. Not only that but we are both Canadian, growing up in towns 20 minutes apart. Her poetry has inspired pieces by myself. I do not see how this could be construed as anti-feminist. We are humans, we are writers, we are equals–our works are similar. It would seem you have some sort of warped view of feminism if you see anything other then that. 

I am a white guy, I am a proud feminist, I promote this in my writing and in my life, you’re going to have to deal with seeing my face.

anonymous asked:

Can we also talk about how Bakugou went from "weird haired guy" to "Kirishima. Change of plans". Oh man I didn't realize how much I missed the anime *cries*

BOI CAN’T WE I just spent the whole morning crying over seeing the moment Bakugou recognizes Kirishima as an equal animated nbd at all r i p me - I think this might be the first time Bakugou calls anyone by their name, actually, and I just!!! that’s because Bakugou heard Kirishima’s words and recognized him as a good partner and a worthy hero and someone whom he could respect and I’m gonna be grateful for chapter 133 for the insight on this for the rest of my always I !!!!!! have feelings g a h

Anon said: ok ok ok ok but but listen what about BAKGOU AND OCHAKO they are the most popular couple and the most cutest , i think you should try to draw them once i would love love to see this !!! of course just if you want hehe thanx

Ahhh sorry anon but I really don’t ship that - I mean, it’s true that I ship Bakugou with a bunch of people aside from my main two, but if they’re part of Deku’s group you can fairly assume they’re not between my Bakugou ships? And I only romantically ship Uraraka with Deku, Tsuyu and Iida anyway so! You’re probably not gonna see any romantic baku/ocha from me, sorry o<-<

Anon said: Since we know what Bakugou’s parents are like, what do you think Kirishima’s parents are like?

I have a similar ask somewhere asking about Kaminari’s parents as well, so I guess I’ll answer both here?? As a general rule I don’t really like making headcanons over stuff I’m sure the manga will give me in the future, so I can’t say I’ve thought about this too much - there are a few things I work under the assumption of while drawing, like for example I’m taking for granted they both have at least functional families, considering Aizawa personally visited their homes to ask their guardians about allowing them back to school, and if anything had been weird he would have noticed

I like to think Kaminari got his quirk straight from one of his two parents with no mixing happening, and got the Kaminari surname from them as well, but that’s all I ever allowed myself to settle on as far as Kami’s family goes, everything else changes based on what I need for the current scenario I’m thinking about… I do often end back on him being an only child, though - in the same way depending on how angst or lighthearted I want it to be my ideas for Kirishima’s family change a lot, but generally I think I mostly fall back on the idea of him having a big family? In a scenario like that his parents are kind and love him a lot, but having many children and needing to split their attention on all of them might cause them to overlook him a little (it would explain his obsession with being flashy, for me) then again, who knows? I don’t know how canon you can consider the infos SMASH gives, but in one of the strips Kiri mentions working part-time, and the fact that he doesn’t seem to have problems with money kinda makes me believe he might be independent from his family like that (unless he’s a rich kid, also very entertaining as a possiblity)

I’ve seen a lot of headcanons floating around about both of these guys’ families and possibly being related to villains, that would be cool too, though I’m not sure how much I believe it

I’m sorry this ended up being little to no useful at all lol as I said, I just shift between scenarios a lot - imagine settling on one and growing attached and then having to let it go once Hori proves it wrong, that’d be terrible for me

How To Get Christmas DLC Secret Route

yoooooo okay so I noticed there’s been a lot of confusion on how to get Unknown/Saeran’s route for Mystic Messenger’s DLC. I have gotten the Unknown route, so these steps will for sure get you into his route.

So with my gameplay, I didn’t participate in any of the first day chats. I started the DLC around 11:00 p.m. (21:00) and just read through all the missed chats. The only required chat from Day 1 is the 23:01 Christmas Soon! chat with 707 and Jaehee because after that chat, there’s a gamebranch. Overall, on Day 1 I got 9% participation. Therefore, I don’t think you need to specifically go for 707′s route, or anyone else’s for that matter. Of course, I didn’t get any Visual Novels on the second day because of the 9% participation lol. 

For Christmas Day, the 00:01 Ungrateful Christmas chat with Zen and 707 has specific answers that get you hearts for Unknown. I’m not sure if you need to choose those ones to get the route, but better safe than sorry. There are only two choices in that chat that give Unknown hearts:

  • Does that mean you have to practice all over again? That’s too much.
  • That’s right. I hope they treat their actors with more care.

After this chat, you will receive a text from Unknown. I chose “Yes. I want to know who you are.”


You have to participate in two other chats to get texts from Unknown: 

  • 08:43 Yoosung and C&R chat with Jumin and Jaehee
    • Choose “I’ll send you the address for the event. [Send address]
  • 16:07 All because of [Name] chat with 707 and Jaehee
    • Choose “It ends at 9. I’ll be waiting. You said you’d come find me soon.”

Participating in the  00:01 Ungrateful Christmas08:43 Yoosung and C&R, and 16:07 All because of [Name] chats are MANDATORY if you want to get into Unknown’s route. If you don’t answer them or get all of them, you won’t get his end. 


You’ll know if you got into his route if the 18:10 Reached the Goal chat appears. Have fun~~~ 

spread to your buds if they’re having trouble :)


NOTE: This is ONLY based on my gameplay. There are other ways to get into Unknown’s route!!  I only missed all of the first day chats because it was my fourth attempt to get onto his route, so I didn’t want to waste another full day. I reblogged this post and added some other info (mainly ways other people got into his route that were different from my method and some clarifications on my instructions), so if you don’t want to do what I did, you can check there too! It’s under the tag #CLARIFICATIONS. I haven’t tried their methods yet (I’ve only played for Unknown once), but if you’d like to try how they did it, go ahead! I also tagged them in it, just bc what they said to me were a little vague, so can send them questions if you want to. 

Honestly, my method was a pain just because I didn’t have the MAX SPEED button D: but it only took me around thirty minutes to go through all the missed chats instead of doing the whole day, so I thought that was fair LOL. 

University Project: Update (Updated!)

Thanks so much to everyone who has already responded to my post  (I will get back to you all soon!) 

You can still send something in or ask any questions by emailing me at

starwarsvillains@outlook.com

Here’s the run down if you missed the posts from last night:

I’m putting a fanzine and blog together for a Uni project. It’s all about women in fandom and female representation in movies, TV, games, comics etc.

A large part of the project is about shining the spotlight on our favourite female characters. So I’m asking for people to send in their fanart, meta, cosplay pics…maybe even fanfic? Anything that celebrates their fave, really!

This is open to all fandoms, not just Star Wars and your work could get printed! (with proper credit, of course)

Some brief guidelines for sending stuff in:

  • Whatever your submission is, female characters have to be the main focus. They can be from any fandom!
  • If you’re sending in fanart or cosplay pics, please include a few words with it saying why you appreciate this character/these characters so much
  • *New: If you want to send fanfiction, please keep it short. I won’t have enough space for a multi-chapter fic. One-shots/standalones/poems/drabbles are fine! Sorry for not mentioning this earlier.
  •  Let me know how you want to be credited. What name/alias do you want to go by? Do you want a link to your social media next to your work and so on…
  • Finally, please don’t send anything that’s NSFW (because my university teachers have to see this haha)

If you have any more questions just ask. I’ve had some really great stuff sent in so far, I hope I can make a zine that’s worthy of showing it off. Check the University Project Tag for more updates and info!

anonymous asked:

i remember back when ppl were trying to frame sh@llura as amazing and progressive like "don't call it a boring het ship! interracial het couples are important!" but now that k@llura is seen as a possibility it's all "it's a boring forced heteronormative relationship" like... guess interracial het ships are only progressive when they don't get in the way of kl@nce lol.

antis don’t give a single shit about representation and being progressive, it’s only relevant when they tear others down. and the fact that they’d rather not have an interracial couple be canon just because it’s not theirs is, frankly, fucking disgusting.

Need Some Help! (Signal boost this!!)

So Ethan decided to give me a heart attack and reblog my idea for a meet up when he’s close to reaching 300k subscribers, so I need some people to help me out because I can’t really be here this week. I can try for maybe an hour a day or so but it might not be possible since I got school and work which is my priority to handle.

I know he’s pretty close to the milestone at the moment but I cannot do this without some help from you guys. I’ve never done anything like this before and I’m really afraid for how to go about this because I’m just some random person honestly, and not exactly an Ethan blog either. (what even is my blog anymore lmao)

If you are interested in helping me out, or just want to give suggestions for what we can do, please send an ask or message and I will take things into consideration before the end of this week. Soon enough I will post a final thing for the meetup tag, what day and time this will happen, etc.

Oh and before I forget I really want to take this over to the community from twitter very soon. My account is at @/crankyblumuffin if you want to know ahead of time when I tweet about it. It’s a new-ish account so the only way people will know about it on there is if you guys help out and retweet! ^^

I hope this can clear some things up for what I have planned. Thanks for reading, and have a great week! See you soon!

anonymous asked:

Do you have any tips for writers who want to write sim stories but don't know how to get them posted in order?

Hi Nonny! I’ll be honest, I wasn’t 100% sure what this question was asking, but I don’t like to give advice that isn’t at least somewhat well-thought out. So here are my tips for starting out and how to format/order your posts (or something like that.)

Jade’s Super Awesome Tips For Getting Your Simblr Story/Legacy Off the Ground i.e. Potentially Helpful Formatting Tips For New Simblr Writers

First of all: If you want to do a sims story, DO IT. They’re great creative outlets, and someone will want to read it! And remember, it is your blog, so do whatever you want, and don’t feel pressured to have to make things a certain way. But, if you want to be organized, these are some guidelines: 

1. Identify your posts in some way. Doesn’t matter how. Some simblr writers use episode, some use chapters, some use a mixture of both (i.e. Chapters for longer portions, like an entire arc, and episodes for each individual scene. Example: Chapter 1: Episode 1, Chapter 1: Episode 2… etc.). This is helpful in letting regular readers know if they’ve missed a post, and follow along linearly. It’s just helpful all around.

2. Linkage. My dudes, this is so important, which is why I made a previous post about it. A lot of simblr writers are already doing previous/next links on their posts, and that’s GREAT. Everyone should definitely be doing this. Personally, I really think the movement should expand to include “beginning” links. On my own posts I have all three, a link to to the start of that particular story, the previous post in the sequence, and I update all posts to include the “next” link once I have it posted. Tumblr’s post formatting makes this SO easy, there’s no real reason not to do it, because it’s super helpful to readers, and trust me, people want to read from the beginning. Maybe not everyone, but you also don’t want to turn people away because they couldn’t find the start of your cool story. So, I repeat, all stories should have this format: Beginning/ Previous / Next links on each post. I’m beating a dead horse here, but it’s so nice, as a reader, just to be able to flip through someone’s story via easy linking, because I don’t have to break my immersion of the story by tabbing out or looking around, or scrolling through your posts to find the next one in line.

  • Helpful side note: If you’re the type of writer who posts things out of chronological order, using these links would still be a good idea, because you can go back and edit them at any time, and you can link to any post on your tumblr, so if you post something later down the line that you think should have happened at an earlier time in the story, you can just rearrange your links to reflect your correct chronological timeline.  
  • Here is my tutorial on how to link your story posts with beginning/next/previous links!

3. Tag correctly. Some simblr writers have more intensive tagging systems than I do, so I won’t speak too much about this, because as a reader, I don’t really use tags to navigate new stories I read. But it is still important to tag all posts in a story the same, so either with the title or legacy name, and then you can tag individual chapters or episodes if you want to. Also be sure to tag if you’re doing a story, or a legacy, or whatever type of story. I use #ts4 story #sims story #ts4 storytelling, there’s a whole other slew of legacy tags which I don’t use, cuz obviously I am not a legacy simblr.

4. Have a table of contents or story page of some sort, especially if you’re doing multiple stories/legacies at once, but even if you’re not, it will help people who are lurking around your profile navigate through your story. If you’d like an example of how to format them, here is my story page and here are my table of contents pages.  As I am not the be all and end all for formatting, I think another great example is @beverlyallitsims index page (she made it SO easy to catch up on her MLSC story and now I’m just another Randy fangirl. I’m a living testament to this process working wonders!). 

5. Billboard advertising. Okay, now this one is totally optional, but if you are doing a legacy or story, it’s a really nice little touch to have a banner or some tell, even if it’s just a small one (you don’t need to be some Photoshop wizard), to let people know that this is an ongoing thing you’re doing, not just a random collection of photos (those are cool too!), but some people go looking specifically for stories and/or legacies to read, so having a banner or something with your story title or legacy name (generation number) is a good idea, too. 

Bottom Line: Make your stuff accessible! Unless, of course, you don’t actually want people to read it lol, which is totally fine, too. Some people like to use their blogs as a personal outlet, and don’t need to be noticed. But there’s nothing wrong with trying to be visible, and if you do have a small pool of readers, be generous and help them along. Total strangers want to read your work, put in a little extra time to make sure their stay is a pleasant one. You know, before you rip out their hearts with your edgy theatrical sim-drama. 

Again, idk if this answers your question, Nonny. But I do want to help! If anyone has any questions or is looking for advice, feel free to message me, either privately, or on Nonny, I don’t mind. My inbox is always open. 

What it is like being a studying poc with anxiety to the highest capacity and how I deal with it.

The first thing I have to tell you is that - your family may not understand and that is okay. Do not blame them for not understanding what anxiety is, the environment you grew up in and the environment they grew up in are completely different, also we have different pressures that we are facing. For example, my father and his entire family were fleeing a genocide - and the last thing on their mind was mental health and personal care. However, as a first generation living in the United Kingdom - mental health is the most important thing to me and being students, I know we put a world’s worth of pressure on succeeding and doing well. This may not always be good for us (unless you work well under pressure, do you). 

Let me just talk a bit about my anxiety here. It is mostly situational anxiety - for example when it comes to exams or public speaking (my role on the school head girl team meant I had to just literally speak publicly every other day - I will make a separate post about this and how I overcame that fear) exam season and revision. 

These tips won’t make anxiety go away completely, but studying with anxiety can be made easier - yes, I know it sounds insane, but it has really worked for me. 

1. Make your desk a safe space. 

Make your desk as soothing for your anxiety as possible. This may include having some plants around, decorating your desk with a particular theme - make it work for you! Let the theme be relaxing, have pictures of the ocean! Let it completely sooth you when you sit down to study. I personally have my desk next to a window so I can get fresh air when I need it. That is another thing… Let yourself breath - do not make your desk too cluttered, have it super minimalist, the less you feel claustrophobic the better. 

2. Try and get into a routine. 

This is does not always work for me because I work in bursts - but it has worked for many of my friends. When you have a routine, you won’t feel blindsided when you have to study - for example, I get super anxious when I can feel the amount of work I need to do. But if you have a routine, you know that you are studying at this specific time and nothing is being thrown in your direction - you can plan for it therefore remain completely in control. 

3. Avoid caffeine - seriously. 

I know that coffee looks super cute for the aesthetic tumblr photos but - avoid it at all costs! Caffeine is a psychoactive drug.  Lets call it what it is and it is mega terrible for your anxiety. It will cause and/or exacerbate your anxiety symptoms. I can not stress this enough, stay away from caffeine. 

4. Take your medications - if you have been subscribed them!

I am not ashamed to tell the world, loud and clear - I am on Propranolol for when my anxiety becomes uncontrollable (lets start publicly making it ok and safe for people to take medications without any stigma please, thanks). Yes, it is a super strong tablet. For those who do not know, its a beta blocker and it stops you from physically having a panic attack by keeping your heart at a consistent rhythm or beat I don’t know the correct terminology (medblrs come through) - do not be ashamed, be proud that you are taking the necessary steps to gain control again. 

5. Take regular walks and control your breaking.

I walk to the breaths I take - a bit like walking to a beat, but its more relaxing. With anxiety, breaking is the key to mastering it. Master your breathing! I’ve noticed that being deeply connected to my breathing means I sense any tension in my body and sensing tension is the first step to identifying if you are feeling anxious or if you feel a panic attack coming on. 

6. Keep a close eye on your stimuli! (Yes, I did just rhyme)

What is making you anxious? Do you have triggers? If you do - learn to minimise contact with them. Be it a person, a place, an object. You do not need to stay in environments that make you feel uncomfortable (unless you are forced to stay - for example dealing with anxiety in class, I’ll make a another post about how to deal with that) I had a friend who used to make me super anxious and I don’t spend that much time with her anymore simply because she wasn’t good for my mental health. Which brings me to my next point - people can be triggers to your anxiety and staying away from them is OK. 

I don’t know if this is helpful but if even one person benefits from this - putting myself out there and owning my anxiety disorder is so worth it. Suffering from anxiety is hard, it is really hard and I just want to say - to all those who suffer from anxiety, you are going to be ok. Whatever coping technique you have or however you deal with it, I am proud of you and you are doing great. 

My message box and ask is open to you. Sometimes talking to another sufferer is easier - I understand and I’ve got you, message me, rant to me! It is better out than in. 

This is my first - really official post on tumblr and I want to know if this was helpful, please give me feedback. I want to learn how I can help and get the message out there more effectively. 

And because it is my first post - I’m going to tag some of my favourite blogs (not the most subtle introduction haha, but super important)
