Do you have any advice for someone that wants to start a simblr? 😊
Do what you love to do! Not a single Simblr you follow started out with thousands of followers, no matter how big they may be now! I know some people may roll their eyes at the standard advice I am going to give you, but remember to have fun and create/do what you want to create.
Before the new year, I had a period where I felt like I HAD to do every request and suggestion I received, that I somehow had to fulfill the wishes of everyone that asked me to make/do something, because they trusted me to execute it well. Having this attitude sucks the fun out of the game. The truth is that we are all different people that like different types of aesthetics, like to play their game differently (or not play the actual game at all, just play around in CAS and build mode like I did/do) and that come from a wide variety of backgrounds.
Start simple! Make a blog (I’d advice you to make a new Tumblr account as opposed to making a sideblog. This is one of my biggest regrets making this blog - since it’s tied to my main blog, I can’t reply to replies or send people asks), pick a theme you like and customize it the way you want to. If you’d like, you can make a Sim or even a Simself for your avatar. Then just start posting! Do you want to post gameplay pictures? Go for it! Want to make your own CC? Do it! There’s thousands of people browsing for new CC every day (including me), with very different tastes and games. There’s bound to be a following for you out there and the CC you want to create. <3
Also, I can not stress this enough: be nice. Even if it is a scary grayface sending you an ask: chances are, it’s a human on the other side of the computer. If you particularely like a piece of CC or a gameplay picture someone posted, let the person know by reblogging it and adding a comment (in the tags if you’re shy!), and reach out to people. I met so many wonderful people on this website just because I sent them a message telling how much I loved their work and the stuff they did, and people have done the same to me. I know the community seems like an absolutely awful place sometimes, but for every bit of foulness there is a whole lot of love, creativity and friendships to be had.
