Many of you tumblrs out there aren’t disposed to posting original materials of your own, you either ‘reblog’ or search the internet for interesting works, or just post or reblog what catches your eye. Much like anyone that presses a shutter and captures an image, even if only once in their life, for that moment they are a photographer, and if you post other’s work, or reblog, you are then a curator. As a curator, you shoul do the same as any museum curator does, and make sure the material after acquisition is acquired and displayed properly, given appropriate attribution (credit), and supply all links or maintain the links, titles, captions or comments of the original artist. It’s just being polite, and actually it’s the way copyright laws are written, so not only polite, it’s also the law. please post and reblog responsibly.
Be aware, we artists do appreciate you promoting us. Few of us have the time to promote our selves. If we spend all of our time promoting, we wouldn’t be producing artwork to promote. As such your reblogs and researched posts are our life blood. That in mind, keep doing what you do, and never feel that what you’re doing is less important than the posts of any artist. You guys rock in your own way! Tumblr wouldn’t be as great as it is without you.
