I just made my blog a week ago and since yours grew so fast I was wondering if you have any advice for people like me on how to build your following? Also youre the best :))
so I honestly still have no idea how my blog went from brand new to 5.5k in like four months (holy shit how) so I’m probably not the best person to ask but here are some things I did that might help I guess:
make original content. this is probably the biggest one just because it gives people a reason to follow you rather than the people you reblog from, sets you apart as an individual blog with something unique to offer.
be engaged in the fandom. send asks. reblog selfies (if you want idk I know a lot of big blogs don’t). try to make friends. don’t be scared to reblog content similar to your own (I emphasize that because I used to be this way and … don’t. it’s just way more fun in general to be engaged).
uh … depending on the type of blog you want doing ask games or posting personal things might help ??? idk I like coming off as more than just a gif maker so I do that.
retags !!! idk I love when blogs write in the tags it makes me smile and more likely to follow tbh
have a good theme that people can like understand how to use and can easily read and stuff
I honestly dk beyond that though. I got lucky tbh. a few big blogs followed me really early on (like one of the most known blogs in the fandom followed me before I even hit 20 followers so them rbing my stuff helped a lot). and I came into the phandom already knowing how to make gifs and write fics so I wasn’t really learning from scratch to make original content and stuff. idk.
okay so this is only a little embarrassing since i just made an intro for another sojung several weeks ago, but!!! hello!! it is i, matt, aka the mun behind rkdawon and jihyork! only this time i’m bringing you rkexy, who’s only kind of evil. okay, so she’s not totally evil, but she’s not the best either!! but pls love her anyways bc i know that i sure do!!
she’s the type of person who will be nice enough to you so long as you don’t get in her way!! she loves to hear herself speak, loves the idea of being a triple threat, and loves the adoration of others!! i kind of feel like she’d be pretty darn good to you so long as you’re her friend (and she definitely needs a few of those, wink wonk this is a potential plot)!!
okay, so!! please like this to plot and i’ll fall into your inbox sometime soon (i promise i’ll be reliable this time)! my main computer kind of broke recently (which explains my recent absence + why jihyo will be taking a hiatus), but i should be able to be around enough to plot and stuff!! so, speaking of, you can reach me on twitter (@dawonsbf) if that’s something that works for you!!
It came to my attention yesterday that some have been pointing to my videos and saying that I am giving credibility to the anti-Semitic movement, and my fans are part of it as well for watching. I don’t want to cite the sources because I don’t want to give them any more attention.
This originated from a video I made a couple of weeks ago. I was trying to show how crazy the modern world is, specifically some of the services available online. I picked something that seemed absurd to me—That people on Fiverr would say anything for 5 dollars.
I think it’s important to say something and I want to make one thing clear: I am in no way supporting any kind of hateful attitudes.
I make videos for my audience. I think of the content that I create as entertainment, and not a place for any serious political commentary. I know my audience understand that and that is why they come to my channel. Though this was not my intention, I understand that these jokes were ultimately offensive.
As laughable as it is to believe that I might actually endorse these people, to anyone unsure on my standpoint regarding hate-based groups: No, I don’t support these people in any way.
Like I said in thispost, I have more CC to release with you all and the first thing I’m going to release is an eyeshadow I made colored in @smubuh‘s Freshly Brewed Palette (hence the name of the eye shadow :P )
It’s interesting because Star Wars continues to evolve and George when watching that scene, he really liked it, but then he went “Uhhh, we have to take that scene out.” “Why, George?” “Because the Sith can’t become ghosts. That’s not what they do. They’re so concerned with their corporeal existence, and wealth, and power that they can’t think beyond that. They don’t think about the afterlife. That’s why they’re all afraid to die. That’s why they’re always trying to figure out how to cheat death.” […] So that scene was cut. But that’s the cool thing about The Clone Wars. It’s the last George Lucas produced Star Wars. And there’s so much you can learn about that mythology by watching that show very carefully.
So a few weeks ago I got interested what made us human apex predators(cuz lets face it we don’t look intimidating). One of the obvious is superior intelligence but that can’t be all. I figured I put a list together for any writer that want to use this information. (these are all google facts so feel free to do your own research or correct me)
Also disclaimer: This post excludes anything that has to do with our above intelligence(like use of weapons) and dexterity thumps, because those are a given. I wanted to concentrate on what else helped us survive in the wild. And this post does not say that the modern human is like this, its about people that still live out in the wilderness or 10 000 years ago.
We humans are persistent hunters, so instead of the typical predator approach by stalking our prey and kill it fast, we let our prey know we are here. We tried to hit it with rocks or spears, if the first strike didn’t kill it, we would just calmly walk after it and try again. This goes on over hours, usually during the hottest time of the day, not giving the poor thing a chance to rest until it’s finally to exhausted to run away. We would literally walk our pray to death. There are other animals that hunt like this(wolves) but we humans are the best at it.
Insanely Good Trackers
This is tied in with our intelligence but I wanted to give it an extra point. Most animals track by smell, which we don’t. We track foot print and things like fur on branches or broken twigs. Water or rain will wash away a scent but following broken twigs is a bit easier in the rain.
We can’t out sprint any animal but we can outrun them. Humans are within the top 5 animals that are able to walk/jog/run long distances without needing a break. And we are the only predator in that list.
Incredible Aim (hand eye coordination)
Out of all the animals we have by far the best aim. Other species with similar abilities just don’t have the same success rate.
We are one of the best climbers there are and if you don’t believe me watch a parkour video.
We eat everything (and i mean everything)
We eat many things that are either unenjoyable for animals or poisonous. Our digestive system is unique and allows us to digest these poisons without a problem. While some of these poisons would be dangerous enough in large doses, it is literally impossible for us to OD on them if we eat them as food. Here’s a list:
Spicy food (is not deadly just unenjoyable)
Milk (Humans are the only animals on earth that are lactose tolerant when we grow into adulthood)
Our flesh wounds stop bleeding relatively fast and heal fast too.We heal so well that a broken bone is considered a relative minor medical issue. A broken bone is a death sentence in the animal kingdom and even for modern days vets its impossible sometime to heal an animal’s broken bone. Not only do our bones heal fast but it grows stronger afterward.
Lack of Fur
Animals that don’t sweat need to regulate their heat by panting. Humans have much better way at regulating heat: we sweat. Sweating happens parallel to whatever activity we do and allows us to perform these task without needing a break. If you made a dog do sports like a human it would have a heatstroke.
All in all we are a species that can adapt to any sort of environment thanks to these traits.
