how to add music on your blog

peachystorm  asked:

hi! im a new simblr, can you give me any advice to start off? i love your page and theme, by the way. :)

Sandy’s Masterpost for starting a new Simblr! 👍

Welcome to the community! I’m so glad you like my blog! Just a few months ago I was also new to the community so I know how daunting it can be! Below I’ve put together a bunch of helpful tips and links that I’ve either used in the past or believe will be useful to you, and any other new/aspiring simblrs! Obviously, everything is subjective- what works for me might not work for everyone else!

🎁 The Basics:

  • Make your tumblr a seperate tumblr, not a sideblog under your main/personal blog. It will make everything easier in the long run, trust me!
  • Use your description to advertise to others what you and your blog are all about. Also having either your URL or your avatar sim related will quickly advertise to others that you’re a simblr! 
  • Enable replies and asks in your blogs settings, if you want people to be able to interact with you and your posts! Bare in mind an interactive simblr is much more approachable!!
  • Keep it sim related! A few personal posts every once and a while is perfectly fine, but post a lot of unrelated stuff you could lose followers. 
  • Network! Follow other simblr’s, like their posts, leave friendly and encouraging comments! Making friends in this community is a sure-fire way to get started. I would be nowhere without my simblr friends!
  • Don’t become disheartened if it takes you a while to take off! Every simblr grows at a different rate.
  • Don’t mistag your posts! Failing to tag your NSFW content or tagging posts that aren’t cc posts as ts4cc will make you very unpopular.
  • Keep your blog atleast 80% original content! It’s much easier for a blog that tries to be original to gain traction in this community! 
  • Don’t get caught up in how many followers/notes you have! Just post what you post because you love it! Don’t worry what other people think.
  • Everyone at some point or another will recieve anon hate. It’s sad that there’s so many negative people out there, but my advice is just to delete it. If you do want to post it, handle it with grace and dignity! (think of Audrey Hepburn!)
  • This is more a personal one but: try your best to avoid the drama!!
  • Finally, treasure your followers & always stay humble!

🎁 Common Simblr Terms Explained:

  • NSFW: Not safe for work. This is used for any posts that contain nudity of adult themes! It’s very important to tag these posts.
  • WIP: Work In Progress. This can refer to any sim related project that is unfinished. 
  • WCIF: Where Can I Find? If someone sees a peice of CC in one of your posts that they like they may send you a ‘WCIF’ through your ask box, they’re simply asking where they can find that certain peice of cc. Not all simblrs agree to answer WCIF’s but it’s certainly very nice to!
  • MM: Maxis Match. Refering to custom content that matches the general aesthetic of the game.
  • Alpha:  Refers to hairstyles that don’t fit the aesthetic of the game, as they have alpha layers which allow certain parts of the mesh to be transparent. This is what makes alpha hairstyles more realistic looking.
  • Clayified: Refers to Alpha hairstyles that have been retextured to look more maxis match.

Okay guys so Robin’s birthday is coming up in June so I’m starting this now so that we have plenty of time to get this going around and get this started. I’m going to be making a fan video to say happy birthday to Robin Lord Taylor June 4th on his birthday, so what I need from you is some videos saying happy birthday! 


  • Video’s must be 10 seconds or under (I may allow a few more seconds slip depending on how many submissions we get) 
  • Submissions must be in BEFORE May 15th 2017 so that I will have time to edit the video together
  • You can say anything you want in your message, but as expected, please be respectful, watch your language, etc. 
  • You can say anything you want in your message, you can say more than just happy birthday, but as stated above, please be respectful, and please keep it within the 10 second area. 
  • Please save files with your username or name you want to appear in the description as the title of your file
  • If you would like a link to your blog in the description on youtube, add that into your email when you send it and I will add it in.

The video itself will be given to Robin via Twitter and uploaded on youtube on his birthday. Whether he sees it or not, we’ll see, but I think it would be a nice little project to get the community together, and tell him just how much we appreciate him. 

Please submit videos to the sooner the better! 

And on a side note, if anyone has any non copy-written music we could use in the background, something that would be suiting for a video compilation like this, that you would be willing to let me use, feel free to send that video email as well, I will credit you in the youtube description. If not, then it will be musicless, which isn’t a big deal, I think it’ll be great either way.

follower milestone♥

I can’t believe it!

Today I woke up to 40.000 followers. So many wonderful people interested in my content, thank you all so much! You can’t imagine how much you all positively influenced my life and motivated me in all aspects. Still can’t understand how I have deserved this.

Of course, I want to give something back to you! You get to choose between music/book recommendations based on your blog, text aesthetics based on your name or a collage/mood board based on your blog, interest, etc!


  1. must be following me
  2. send me an ask with the following info:
  • book/music rec, OR name aesthetics, OR collage
  • if book/music rec: preferred genre if you have one
  • if name aesthetics: your name, obvs
  • if collage: MBTI type, zodiac, Hogwarts house, colors, anything you’d like me to consider really
  • please add a [40k] so I’ll know it’s for this special! 

Please notice that I will be preferring non-anon requests!


Thank you all for your support!

hey guys

it’s been awhile. just wanted you all to know that i’m still here, i’m alive, don’t worry. i needed a break from tumblr for awhile because it turns out the safe space i had made it out to be is not completely accurate. these past few months i took time to get my mental health in order, and i am now seeing a psychiatrist. i’ve never been doing better in school, i’ve been going out more, and things are starting to look on the way up. i’ve since decided that with my health in better condition, only now could i return to this little blue website. 

but there will be some changes (don’t worry, i’m still the same person, this blog won’t be completely remodeled or anything !) 

  1. after quite a few months of dissatisfaction with my name, i’ve decided to go by ezra, this is my new name now !!
  2. i may not be quite as active in the gif-making field as i once was. i’ve found that i was relying far too heavily on the validation it gave me instead of actual joy.
  3. BUT i’ll still be active on the blog in general, though probably not as much as i was in the summer (it’s senior year, i’m aiming for valedictorian, and too much time on the internet just isn’t good for me and my health)
  4. i’m aiming to get away from drama (i have it blacklisted) because it’s just not worth the anxiety
  5. i will definitely be even more active at my new blog @cosmicology – this is where i’ll be the most open and raw. it’s a mix of aesthetic, art, a lil bit of music, and just all the things i like and calm my heart. it makes me happy :’) 
  6. i’ll still be able to contact you here, @cosmicology, and you can add me on my snap @/bestfrens !!

so i think that sums up the past few months, thank you all for your incredibly sweet messages, i can’t tell you how much it means to me !! love you guys, as always,

apparently i have written quite a few guides/tutorials - O_O - here’s a list of the code tutorials so far… no doubt, this will be added to - make sure to check the ‘resources & tutorials’ page for more…

Bottom!Genos week 2k17

alrighty boiz you suggested it so here it is lets get crazy. No banner for this or anything because I am 1. uncreative and b. lazy.

Bottom!Genos week is, as you might’ve guessed, a week totally dedicated to Genos getting rammed. Anything with Genos taking it up the ass is perfectly fine here- there’s no specific pairing or anything you need to draw. Saigenos? Hell yeah. Genosonic? Yes please. You want Tastumaki ramming Genos, you got it.

Lets go over some rules first, I guess.

1. Bottom!Genos week will take place from February 5th to February 11th.
2. Although this is inherently nsfw/explicit, your posts don’t generally have to be nsfw/explicit! 
3. All forms of creativity are allowed- fan art, fan fics, cosplay, music, macaroni art, you bet. 
4. This isn’t really a rule but more of a reminder. All posts will be posted to this blog, genosisabottom. You must tag your post as #bottomgenosweek2k17 or else there will be no guarantee that I will see it. 

If I think of any more rules I’ll add them but I think that’s good.

We got some daily prompts, too. How nice. As you can see, I’ve split them up into two per day. The first one is a more vague prompt- be creative! I’ll love to see all the cool things you can come up with. The second one is optional, if you need help coming up with something or you just want to do one of the things I’ve suggested!

Day 1: Firsts / Sex Toys
Day 2: Alternate Universe / High School
Day 3: Role Reversal / Alpha and Omega
Day 4: Emotions / Make-Up Sex
Day 5: Something Different / Tentacles
Day 6: Fun / Lingerie
Day 7: Free Day! Do whatever you want to do for this day.

I’m hoping this will turn out good. This is my first time doing any sort of week thing, so I don’t know what will happen- hopefully this will be a fun experience and lots of people will participate! Start working on your submissions and prepare for February 5th!

godcanthelpyou  asked:

Hi! I just found out your blog and I think it is super cute, I created my Tumblr like two days ago and I would love if you gave me any advice on how can I make it better! Thank you💕

🌸 Hello! If you’re not going to go for a themed blog and keep it more personal, then this is a little easier. All you have to do is make it so it reflects you! Head over to theme hunter to find a theme that fits your taste. Add a music player with your favorite songs. Post anything & everything you like. Do whatever you want honestly. 🌸

But if you did want to try for a certain theme/aesthetic, then let me know! I can point you to some sources.

anonymous asked:

hi, how can i put music in my tumblr when i use your template?

1. Go to & make an account, or login if you already have one. Then, you need to make a playlist. 

2. Then click ‘Create Player’. Choose ‘classic player.’ 

3. Under ‘Player Color Scheme,’ click custom. Choose the colors you want. Then click ‘small.’

4. Click ‘get code.’ 

5.  You’ll be taken to the following page- ONLY COPY THE GREEN HIGHLIGHTED TEXT. In other words, leave out the last line.

6. Go to your blog and click customize. Now, paste the code where you want the music button to appear. Most people put it after the description, so that’s what I’ll do here. 

And you’re done! I hope this helped, make sure to check out my themes page often as I will be making a new one soon!

following: forever your blog is super cute💕

i really enjoy looking at your blog is so pretty

10/60 , want a blog rate?

anonymous asked:

this may sound really stupid but how do you get so many followers like I've been on tumblr for about six months and I've only gotten around four hundred followers any advice

not stupid at all - i’m still confused to this day how i got so many. i never expected it

i’m not sure what i did differently than others but here are some tips. before you do promos/get your blog out there, you need to make sure the blog itself is marketable for a follow. what i mean by this is:

  • you need to stick to a general theme - by sticking to a theme in your posts, someone will be more inclined to follow so they see more of what they like on their dash
  • you need a banner - something bold, possibly colorful, a cool font/design, whatever it may be. a banner really makes a difference 
  • you need a nice layout - something clean, simple, organized. make sure the blog theme you pick matches the kind of posts you reblog. i would pick a different theme if i had a fashion blog than i do with the blog i have now. it’s all about the theme
  • install a nice font - my personal favorites are ‘short stack’ and ‘courier new.’ make sure your font is legible but more interesting than sans serif/arial
  • pick a nice color scheme - it should go with your banner, and find 2 (maybe 3) colors that compliment each other nicely
  • personalize your blog - add links (faq, ‘me’ page, ect); add a hit counter; add an updates tab, music player, whatever you want; put a description under your banner. it could be short and sweet, or it can be something personal like a quote or something about you
  • reblog posts consciously taking it consideration how they go together. maybe it’s just me, but when i reblog, i think about the last posts i reblogged and how the colors will go together

now onto getting your blog out there (it starts off slow but don’t let it discourage you):

  • reblog a lot
  • reblog a lot of promos
  • do your own promos - once you have 1k, do small ‘first 5’ promos and build your way up. once they start to reach, go to ‘first 10’ and so on
  • ask people to check out your blog - be polite about it
  • as you get more followers, build up your identity as a blogger - let your personality show in your personal posts (about your day or feelings); you won’t be getting a lot of messages for a while, but when you do, let your answers reflect your personality
  • post your own pictures (of yourself, so people can put a face to your blog) and of anything you think is interesting/artsy enough for tumblr. a single post might be your “big break”; you never know

hope this helped!!

naopleon  asked:

hey, how did you get the music player in your right updates tab? or did you make it yourself? thanks :)

Hey! :3 I’m pretty sure I put a link to her blog in my updates tab but here’s the tutorial just in case. :3

I have seen (and listened omg they’re so good) your playlist and you have 37 songs - so you need to adjust, add, and edit some things from what she said in her tutorial.

For it to work, you need to have a good Direct Link website to start with - and since, MP3 Skull doesn’t work for me, I use this, which is as good as it gets, I guess. But if you already have a Direct Link saved up, use that. ;)

*Note: I used a music player just like yours before and this is VERY much different than that. A direct link is NOT the same as the audio link you would put in your player SCM Player - because when you are using the SCM Player, any youtube link is fine, as long as it has High Quality. But now that you’re using the Billy Player, you have to download ALL the songs you are using, put them in a folder for faster coding, and go to your direct link site and upload + get the direct links (like in the Reichenbach Lullaby, or your Toy Box Theme, my direct link is’s Theme violin cover from BBC Sherlock.mp3).

**Note: If you are using the one that I use, make sure to register so you can easily file up the songs + links. ;)

Also, it doesn’t work quite well if they’re in list form - it says in Elizabeth’s tutorial that the finished code would look like this:

But when I tried it out, it didn’t work, so I bunched them all up in one HUGE paragraph of coding. So my code pretty much looks like this:


If you are trying for the multi - playlist tab like mine, where Fandom, Musical, and Zombie-Killing Playlists are separated with their very own music tabs, just make separate playlists and lists. ;)

Reminder Thing: It’s easier to have your songs + direct links gathered in one doc so you can go through it pretty quickly and you can list your songs in the correct order.

… and there you go! :3

Sorry if that sounded a bit complicated, I tend to over - complicate things. :(

Hey, hey, hey Tay!

After you followed me two days ago (yes, I’m still DEAD) I thought I should introduce myself to you…my name is Lea and I’m a 17-year-old girl from a little town in Germany. I looove playing guitar and I also write my own songs. I started writing lyrics at the age of ten but I wasn’t able to play the right instrument to make songs out of my words (I learned cello at this time but that wasn’t THE instrument for me…if you know what I mean…) and then I learned playing guitar when i was twelve years old…nearly the same time I fell in love with your music. You are the reason why my love for music became more than that…a dream for my future. Because of you I know that I have to work hard for what I want. Everytime that I have a gig and I am really really nervous I tell myself: Taylor does this in front of thousands of people…and now go on this stage and do what she would do without being nervous!
So thank you for giving me this confidence and strength. Right now I am making my own CD and this is SO exciting. It’s fascinating how a song changes when you record it and add a bass and add piano and add drums and so on…then suddenly the song you played in your bedroom becomes what you imagined it to be. I’m really proud of myself that I make music on the street to earn money to finance the record… I can not wait to hold my own CD!
I have also written a song for you a while ago which is on my blog and it would mean the world to me if you’d hear it!!! (the audio is not the best quality but I wanted to share it with you)                                                         Taylor, thank you for being my role model and more than that: a friend!         Thank you that I can count on you and thank you for being there for us all the time even if that’s not your job!                                                                On June 20th a friend of mine and I will see you in cologne (YAS!!!) and we’re hella excited and talk about it every single day…we can’t wait anymore!!!!       Maybe someday I’ll get the chance to meet you and I really hope this dream will come true but until then I just want you to know that I am so so proud of you taylorswift! :)

Love, Lea


Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPspooky

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

Inspired by Halloween in the United States, the goal this weekend is to create spooky videos filled with suspense. Here’s how to get started:

  • Natural sounds play a big part in hair-raising moments. Whether it’s chilling silence, or the creepy creaking of a floorboard — find ways to incorporate ambient noise in your videos that adds to the scariness of the scene. If you use music in your video submissions, please be sure to only use music to which you own the rights.
  • Build up suspense in your videos by starting with a quiet scene that culminates in a shocking payoff. Make videos with surprise spooky endings — and don’t be afraid to use humor for a more playful ending as well.
  • Costumes and props are central to Halloween. Dress up with your friends to create frightening-looking characters, and film a bone-chilling video around them. Be sure to find a location that adds to the haunted vibe.

PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPspooky hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured Monday.

Want to join the Bethyl Army? Here’s your chance!

So if it wasn’t obvious from my URL, I’m a huge fan of Beth and Daryl from The Walking Dead. Over the last few months, I’ve watched as the Bethyl tag got more and more popular with pictures, GIFS, videos and much more. Now that a lot of people have began to ship these two beauties together, I decided it would be a great time to make an exclusive group for Bethyl fans.

What is the Bethyl Army?

The Bethyl Army is a group I decided to create to connect with other people who have Bethyl blogs or ship them as well. I thought it would be awesome to make a side blog, which will be password protected, and add all the Bethyl shippers to it so we could interact. I know sometimes a few anti-shippers like to post bullshit in our tag, which is one of the main reasons I decided to make this group. We’d be free to talk about our love for these characters without drama. 

What can we expect to see if we join the Bethyl Army?

Not only will you be added to a private blog, we’ll also have our own tag: bethyl army. So that other people in our group can see your posts. We’ll also have scheduled tinychats three times a week where we’ll all meet up and chat there as well while listening to music, watching videos and much more. 

How can we join the Bethyl Army?

It’s simple! All you have to do is follow my Bethyl blog; here. Reblog this post and send me a message saying you want in on the group. After that, I’ll send you a link to the side blog and add you to the Bethyl army tag on my blog. Later on when we have a significant amount of members, I’ll ask you to give me a few bits of information to add to the page. (Your name, an icon of your choice and why you like Bethyl, etc.)

With that, I hope you’ll join in on the fun and that we’ll talk soon!
