Hi!! ive been on tumblr for a while (and following you for a while haha) and i just haven't been growing. im active and posting alot of my own pics but i havent gottan any new followers in 2 months! do you have any tips?

hello! first of all thank you so much for sticking around yay love yaaa! 💟 here’s a slightly elaborate (and quick) list of my tips to gain more audience:

1. ask ppl to check your blog! a little note that some people might find this annoying!! i find this okay bc i constantly feel the need to find and discover new blogs! however, that is not always the case for everyone. please do check the faq of every person before hitting up their asks!
2. make/post your own content. simple ones like cute photos, selfies, thoughts, etc. please do tag other people who can reblog it for you too! in my case, my tag is: peachisty! this really helps in gaining more notes i believe. this is because more notes = more audience!
3. get a nice lay-out, personalize it. dont just settle for the lay-out you took from the theme-garden. style it! literally the codes are everywhere in google! but if you have no idea where to start, feel free to hmu! i know lots of css stuff and im p much skilled with web designing so yeah :~)
4. choose your blog style and stick with it! in my case, it’s personal/art/positivity i guess? changing your blog style once a month doesn’t help tbh bc people want consistent content! and having literally super random stuffo is chaotic i believe?
5. get a nice, catchy url and dont just leave it around!!! dont change ur url everyday! my url is p much a gem so i dont rlly think i will ever ever change it tbh haha. i do have some saved ones that are centuries old btw!! if u dont have something in mind, feel free to hmu so i can give em to you
6. talk to your pals !!! may it be thru saying: “if u ever need somebody to talk to im here!” or thru posting updates about you or your day!! i think it just makes me feel safe and happy to read regular updates about ppl on my dash!!! i guess the same goes for other ppl!
7. make your own tag and reblog the stuff ppl tag you into!!! usually, your tag may be your url bc it’s easier to remember! i think this helpz bc u can gain pals thru exchanging of posts tooo
8. make a faves page! haha idk, but faves page made me discover tons of really cool blogs!!!!!! this assures u new mutuals too!!! mutuals that match your aesthetic! ;)
9. join networks. this did not entirely help me in gaining followers but it did help me gain friends!! this is bc networks treat each other like family!!! and idk!! that’s the very reason why i made tumblr tbh!! to meet new beautiful ppl that have the same aesthetics and passion as mine!! networks give u that! along with it, u can do group blog rates, follows, etc!
10. follow similar blogs! this is p much obvious! u follow similar blogs in order to have similar posts on your dash that u can easily reblog! also, if u have the same content, there is a huge possibility that the person will follow u back!!

last note: i want you to know that it is never about the amount of followers!! if you’re using tumblr as a platform to showcase your art: im pretty sure it feels more validating to have sum ppl recognize your talent but please do not entirely depend on it! dont stop making art just because you dont have lots of audience! the amount of ppl who sees your art =/= your skills ok !!!!! :0 at the end of the day… if you come to think of it… i can delete this blog and im back to 0?? i mean… do you get me? you’re still youuu! :)

i hope this helps !! good luck on your journey bb 🐝

Yo, question, im self publishing a short story but how the actual f do i go up to editors and be like, hey so heres my finished manuscript can u check my spelling and stuff without making me wanna chuck it in the river and never write again??? Im extremely anxious about it but i dont want to just have friends proofread my manuscript. 😢😢😢

Depends on what you want to hire them for, is it copy of proofing or both?
(Copy being they are checking for consistency and plot holes and may recommend restructures or suggested edits to improve the text, proofing being “yep your spelling and grammar are correct, here you go!”) 

Usually when people want to hire me they want both, they just don’t know how to word it. Which is why I will always ask them “what do you want from this editing experience”. Do you want me to pick apart the story to make sure it all fits back together again, or do you just want me to make sure it’s well punctuated and spelled correctly? Sometimes they’ll start out with “oh just grammar and spelling is fine, I think I’ve got everything pretty down, but y’know if you have any suggestions” which is when I have to very gently tell them they actually want a copy edit, and this will be a lengthier process than me going through it on a speed run basis. So also allowing yourself ample time to have it edited before a deadline, is a good idea. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve agreed to a project, asked them when they want it by and the email I get back says “well the deadline for open submissions ends tomorrow so if you could just” and I have to tell them no, this is not a thing that will be happening.

You may also want to ask your editor to do a read through first (offer to pay, even if they don’t want payment for it, it’s still the polite thing to do) to see if they have any suggestions as to what you can fix before they start combing through it with a fine tooth comb. This will also give you a vague idea of how they work as an editor and their approach to criticism. 

Some editors only ever leave the negative feedback, short little sentences at the side like “This doesn’t work, fix it.” which to my mind, is one of the least helpful comments you can leave at the side of something. But I’ve also worked with editors who do that and shrug when you tell them that and say “it’s not my place to spoon feed them, if they can’t figure it out they shouldn’t be writing” which I mean, that’s one way to get your coffee spiked I suppose.

Personally I like to let the author know I am enjoying their work. It helps boost their morale a little bit, and means when you do need to tell them “hey this doesn’t really work”, it can soften the blow because I know, I know it’s so easy to look at something and hear “this is shit, why did you even write this”, when what I am actually trying to tell you is “you’ve written something really good here but this part lets it down, why not try rewriting this or consider cutting it entirely”. I have actively squeed in the comments section of manuscripts when I have figured something out or when the characterization is on point, and part of this is because I am expressive, but another part is because I just love words, I love seeing the clever ways people fit them together and I really don’t see the point in not telling someone they did a good job. 

So, how do you approach an editor? Send them an email.

“Hi, my name is XYZ and I was hoping to engage your services for a final draft of my manuscript which I hope to self publish/submit to a magazine/competition/open submissions call/pitch to an agent*. It’s a sci-fi/fantasy/literary/romance/contemporary piece and I’m primarily looking for copy/proofing workand was wondering about your rates. I have an open timeline/approaching deadline so a rough estimate of how long you think it would take would also be welcome. If you’d like to review the manuscript first I would be amenable to paying a reading fee for your time.
Thank you, I hope to hear from you and look forward to working with you,
Best, XYZ.”

Or as some people do on here “ @ joy I need help lmao how much money do I need to throw at you to fix this???” which has also worked :P

(*these are important distinctions to make, it helps us to tweak your work)

Sketch Dump of Dreamon stuff.
These arent clean or anything but this is usually how I figure out body types and the looks for everyone as well as how to draw them. I thought they’d be nice to show though because I dont know when I’ll get around to making final finished art for all the Dreamons so maybe at least catching glimpses of them here and there will help.

These are not final designs either in terms of outfits and stuff just again mostly body type studies.

HOW DO YOU PEOPLE DRAW HANDS SO GOOD? MINE JUST END UP LOOKING LIKE MITTENS

I included a quick chibi hands thing there because, in general, they ARE easier, and they’re a good stepping stone. 
anyway basically i box out the basic shapes and then draw noodle fingers. 
it’s best if you know how wrists work, it makes it all a lot easier. And how the thumb attaches to the fingers/how big fingers are compared to wrist/etc. That makes using the box method a LOT easier, u stop making rookie mistakes if you know those things. 

ofc i always fix things in lineart, none of my sketches are spot on.
(NOODLE FINGERS)

heres a facepalm feat. dan

please dont attack me for making a tutorial, I know my art isn’t perfect ;-;

-Tuna


this is my two step process of how i draw hands in my pixel style.

and with normal lineart i usually use shapes and stuff to make my hands

~mod daggers

aaaaaaAAAAAA!!!

I can’t thank you enough!! it makes me feel so good to know there are all these people out here who love this boy as much as I do! Thank you so much for sticking around! <3

i made a huge huge HUGE breakthrough with Loki on my personal growth and I feel so so good about Everything so I’m less stressed now about how this community [tumblr pagans in general] can be. it really fucked me up before, thats why i disappeared for my health but i mean it this time i really wanna blog more ❗ idk how soon ill be back to talking AS much so if i were to get messages again dont hold your breath for me to respond quickly rn unless you dont care when i respond or not. but yeah :) i was struggling for awhile but as usual Loki saved my ass ~ ~ ~

boaringday  asked:

I was wondering. What episode(s) do you think has the best writing?

LOL i honestly dont know? im not good at that stuff, and my judgement for ‘good writing’ usually comes down to the basics-ie, everyones in character, the plot isnt contrived bullshit, people arent holding idiot balls, and it keeps my interest(bonus points if the jokes make me actually laugh).

i give chaotic a lot of shit here and there but i find most episodes pretty damn solid. I havent finished my rewatch yet so i cant really answer this yet.

what do you think fellow followers? Best written episode is what?

peetamellakr  asked:

/post/149085502052/sometimes-people-dont-really-say is there anyway you would be able to do a tutorial/tell me how you created this picspam? its gorgeous!!

hey, okay, i’m bad at explaining stuff, but i’ll try my best!

first, you have to choose your colour palette (i usually find something good here) and colouring; i used the same colouring on all the pieces of this picspam (it’s a sony vegas colouring, i put it on before making the screencaps).

Hey I saw you share an anti straight guys post. I just wanted to say - thankyou. Thankyou for supporting that people be more divisive and that we go back to persecuting people. Thankyou for helping pave the road towards discrimination. After all, it's not like men are different to each other. Or that straight people are one grey mass. No I guess at the end of the day anyone who's different from you is deserving of contempt regardless of how hard they work to be their best. It's sad.

ok, let me say: i thought it was just hyperbole on the op’s part. 

i dont hate all straight guys and i was p sure op was just overgeneralizing cuz when ppl make these posts here they usually mean the ones that suck not all of them and shit like that. thats why i rbd it i guess. im p sure i know who you are i think its best if you dont follow me anymore because i might upset you further and i know you’ll probably dislike some stuff i rb and itd be better for your own sake if you didnt continue following me. i took the post as hyperbole. there are straight guys who are generally cool dudes and i thought that op was just exaggerating and hyperbole-ing about it and i only rbd it bc i agreed with the op about the dress code stuff. its 4am i do not wish to exacerbate this whole mess so i’ll leave it at that. you can block me if you want i literally dont care. i hope you have a nice rest of your time remember to drink water pal :D

Sorry for the apparent inactivity lately! Im in LA and its SUPER busy so I dont have much time to check things. Not only that but when I DO reblog stuff here on my phone, Tumblr doesnt actually do it which makes it seem like I’m dead! I swear I’m not, look!! *waves arms around* I’m alive!!

But I apologise for seemingly being absent. Im usually super active so its always weird to not be able to be AS active! I’ll be back home again soon :) miss you guys!

what is your otp for your character?: ashe & hux aka the only ship

what are you willing to write when it comes to shipping?:  a lot tbh but like i dont have to worry about it because there’s only one person i’ll ever write this ship with and we’ve known each other for 7 years so like we know what we’re both comfortable with

how large does the age gap have to be to make it uncomfortable?: like 7 years is usually my cut off

how far do steamy moments have to go before they are considered ns.fw?: tbh i dont do smut on here just because im generally not comfortable rping it publicly? like ill reblog pictures and stuff but i tend not to have ns.fw threads

who are the characters you ship your character with?:  uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hux

does one have to ask to ship with you?: no, only because this blog is single ship ( as far as romantic / sexual / goes, but im open for friends/enemies whatever! )

how often do you like to ship?: because ive developed this character and this couple with @starkillergeneral / kat for going on two years, its not a matter of ‘often’. i just dont ship ashe with anyone besides hux ( specifically hers )

tbh you make ppl feel like they have to walk on eggshells around u like you have all these people telling u how amazing u are and then a fan says that you were giving off a weird vibe (literally nothing bad about that) and you go off about not understanding why someone would say that and that it makes u self conscious ..? anyways dont and a solution for greasy hair is dry shampoo dont try to avoid the problems you know are there it just makes it worse

i get a lot of mean stuff on here and i can admit that that particular instance i was in a sad mood and misunderstood and overreacted. i haven’t heard the eggshells argument from anyone else. and judging by the consistent amount of critiques i get every day on here i’d say it’s probably not a fair assessment. also my hair doesn’t really get that greasy i’m usually joking about that. it gets sweaty in my videos because i sweat when i talk loud for a long time but i don’t really care. the grease thing is kind of just a running joke in my videos now. 

HOLY FUCK

SO MY CLASSMATE POINTED OUT THE MSOT INTERSTING THING IVE EVER SEEN

pleasE PLEASE READ THIS HOLY MOTHER OF GOD

SEE THAT FUCKING HAND? ????? U MAY THINK OH THATS JUST GRUNKLE MAYBE EVEN SOOS BUT NO DUDE

ITS A MOTHERFUCKING SIX FINGERED HAND

HERES AN EDIT SO U CCAN SEE BETTER

ENLARGE LOOK AT IT MESS WITH THE CURVES YOU WILL SEE IT EVENTUALLY BECAUSE IT IS THERE

YOU MAY THINK IARINA YOU FUCKING IDIOT THE BUILDINGS OLD ITS MAYBE FROM 30 YEARS AGO

AND ILL REPLY

YEAH IM AN IDIOT USUALLY BUT NOT THIS TIME SUCKER! BECAUSE IN GIDEON RISES THAT HANDPRINT WASNT THERE! WHOS THE IDIOT NOW?

OH YOU WANT PROOF? SHABAM!

LOOK AT THAT PROOF

THEN YOUR SORRY ASS MAY SAY OH IARY BUT WHAT IF ITS JUST GRUNKLES HAND AND HE LIKE FORGOT THE GLOVE ON???? WELL YOU KNOW WHAT ILL REPLY? NO YOU IDIOT BECAUSE TO MAKE THAT HANDPRINT HE SHOULDVE HAD ALL OF HIS FINGERS IN THE GLOVE! 

heres the thing, i dont know what to do with that information but you guys usually do. heck someone may have spotted this and made the connection even earlier, then yea id be making a fool of myself bla bla. but i really want people to discuss this. if u have a forum account please also post it there. 

like, ok, i want to b clear abt where im coming from with this, bc i dont think its going to be the same for everyone, and, me personally, im a 17 y/o lesbian. and for the past couple years ive been in this rut where its like, unbelievably hard to enjoy straight media. and it gets harder every year. i go thru periods where i just Won’t read or watch or listen to etc anything that doesnt have lgbt characters. it’s so frustrating to not be able to see people like you in media. and like honestly this is probably bc im so much more self aware & also aware of how much i am begging for scraps here? there isnt a lot of media that caters to me and, to be honest, a lot of what is out there is stuff i don’t love. it’s more nuanced but a lot of it does come down to the usual, “i dont always want to read lgbt fiction, i want to read genre fiction with lgbt protags”

like that is such a prevalent opinion, yet people still say they wont make characters lgbt bc it’s not a part of the plot. it really really doesn’t have to be part of the plot. all it takes is a pronoun. if we’re sticking w podcast examples, take maureen from wtnv- she states a few times that she doesn’t like boys. it has almost zero plot relevance except to Maybe clarify that she isnt dating chad? we dont see her with a gf or any romantic relationship- we just know she’s gay.

and speaking of podcast examples, maybe it’s unfair to use night vale, but like, they are hardly the only ones. it’s one of the things i fell in love with abt audio drama- it seemed that everywhere i turned there was something for me. the black tapes and tanis could hardly be called anything like lgbt fiction, and the inclusion of amalia’s sexuality doesn’t change that. caleb & adam’s relationship in the bright sessions doesnt drastically change any plots bc they’re both boys. the message actually surprised me the most, because i never expect nonbinary characters, let alone from something that felt like a long-winded GE advertisement. and that’s only a few. i recently helped build a blog page with a list of lgbt podcast characters and it was saddening for me to think of the titles we can’t yet add to that list.

it really really means a lot to be able to read about or watch or listen to lgbt characters. i don’t really know how to describe it but i feel like everybody who isn’t a straight white guy has felt some approximation? personally, i went my entire childhood and practically half my adolescence without any positive concepts or characters or understanding to associate with being lgbt, and when i am able to see that it fills me with a kind of hope and happiness.

i want to be clear that this isnt an attack. i’m not trying to go to anyone and be like, shame on you, you’re bad because you dont do this, im gonna tell you how to do your job, etc. i jst think like its a conversation worth having. and the creators have shown that they’re awesome writers, that they have the ability to make these complex and beautiful characters that we fall in love with. and i hope in the future maybe they’ll think about including something like this. im still going to listen and love it either way.

lol im nervous to post this and probably wont put it in the tag but idk im venting i guess

tbh I don’t know how to say ‘if you only concentrate on the negative sides of society and feed into a constant loop of negativity it’s going to seriously affect your personal wellbeing and perspective’ without implying that I don’t also recognise that a lot of the issues addressed are real and serious. I’m just worried this site is encouraging constant distrust and hatred in a lot of young, impressionable people and because the seeds of negativity are based in real things that it’s okay to continue to water them day after day. 

honestly just stay safe out there everyone and try not to forget that there is a lot of good in this world that is easily forgotten about.

I came here from Romania when I was 12 years old. I had an accent. High school was tough a little bit for a few years. I wanted to fit in. I wanted to be liked. I wanted to be good-looking. I wanted to be popular. I spent a lot of time thinking, ‘What are these people going to think of me?’
