just was content with stuff on my dash

So it appears we’re in one of those booklr renaissance modes. Don’t get me wrong, I do love when these kinds of discussions happen because that’s how I found a lot of my tumblr friends, but it all seems so very cyclical and I’m frustrated by it.

And I feel this way largely because I have found my crew. When people say they feel like booklr is dead, I shake my head because I struggle to keep up with my friends and their content. If they are so alive, how can booklr be dead?

True, some of this despondent sentiment comes from bloggers who have been here for years who very legitimately feel sad that many of their old friends have left (I feel that too), but there are new people who are filling those gaps. New bloggers who are creating content and chatting left and right. Go find them. Befriend them.

So today’s lesson is:

Find your crew.

Everyone is looking for something different from this website, so finding friends will look different for everyone, but here are my tips:

  • Seek out the smaller blogs. Following big blogs won’t make you friends. I’m not saying it’s impossible, but it’s simple math. When you have that many followers it’s hard to keep up with everyone. There are many great and wonderful people who run large blogs and by all means follow them, but if you want friends, your best bet is the smaller blogs.
  • Look for blogs that start the interactions. Look for blogs that send asks. Look for blogs that play tag games. Look for blogs that participate in challenges (especially the 100 Days of Booklr challenge). These are bloggers who are doing things and befriending people–and they’ll likely want to befriend you too.
  • Keep track of people. If you’re bad with names (like me), write shit down. Everyone feels good when they’re called by name or tagged in something relevant to their interests. At one point, I kept a spreadsheet with my mutuals and their names and what books they liked, etc. because I knew I had a bad memory for that. You don’t have to be that nerdy about it, but making the effort can go a long way in building friendships.
  • Search the booklr tag. I look through the recent booklr posts at least once a day. If I see someone posting a question or asking for recommendations, I do my best to respond. Sometimes I’ll just boost a post because I know I have followers who will jump in. I find a lot of new posts, blogs, and friends this way–and you can too!
  • (Tangential related) Find fresh content. Maybe booklr feels dead because it feels stale, like people are all reblogging the same posts for the hundred-thousandth time (literally). To fix that, don’t just rely on your dash because that’s going to be a feedback loop. Look for new posts on the booklr or other tags. A) it’s new stuff that no one has seen before and B) it’s supporting smaller blogs who may not get seen otherwise! Win-win! Doing this won’t necessarily build you a crew (it can help though), but I think it’s crucial to making booklr feel alive again so that’s why I include it here.

A couple last things to remember: not everyone you try to befriend is going to click with you and that’s ok. But I do think that we all can find friends on here and friends are what makes booklr a community. Just sometimes you have to be very deliberate about building that community for yourself. And also, there’s nothing wrong with being anxious about talking to people and wanting to just be a lurker. You can still make a difference. Stick to the last two tips and let smaller blogs feel loved with your likes and reblogs. Good luck!

HEY so i just did a mass unfollow of every single blog i follow. and so…. i need more stuff on my dashboard SO

Hi omgcp fandom, I’m looking for some new blogs to follow.

  • Must be ace/aro positive!!!
  • Even if you don’t post/reblog ace/aro content, I just need to know that you’re ace/aro positive (and also if you reblog stuff related to The Discourse™ I’d appreciate it if it’s tagged so I can choose to avoid it on bad days)
  • I don’t mind what pairings or characters you like :)
  • Not required but definitely a bonus if you also post Yuri on Ice stuff
  • Also not required but a slight bonus if you happen to be online outside of the standard US time zones or have a queue or something since I’m Australian and my dash is very quiet of an evening

So reblog or like this post and I’ll check out your blog!

(And btw follows would be from my main, warriorqueent)

(excuse the Very Bad banner lol i kinda wrecked it beyond salvation so… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

hello!! i’m nat and welcome to my first ever follow forever! tbh i’ve been wanting to do this ever since i hit 300 followers but then school and exams got in the way and now i’m already past 600??? (628 to be exact) it might not seem like a lot to some but it’s a lot to me & i’m very grateful for every single one of you here!!! 

february 17 also marks the 1 year anniversary of this blog officially becoming glitchyoongi! 🎉 (and i guess the 1 year anniversary of becoming an official army/stan) in just one year i’ve managed to gain a lot of nice mutuals and a few close friends, and also release a lot of self-made content (gfx, edits, vids, memes etc) which i’m very happy for all the love they got! thank you all for following me and/or liking/reblogging my stuff :’) all of you make my dash a much more enjoyable and wonderful place :’’’) i love and appreciate every single one of you!! 🙆

anonymous asked:

How do you make time to read so much AND be online in your free time?! I have so much I wish to read, but life and obligations and unexpected appointments keep getting in my way. There are days when, in my only bit of free time, I am just too exhausted to read. Do you have any advice on how to juggle these things?

I’ve been thinking how to answer this because the answer is wrapped up in a lot of shame and defensiveness though I know that wasn’t anybody’s intent. 

I have a mental illness that involves things I generally don’t talk about with people such as paranoia, delusions, hallucinations, mixed with a mood disorder that adds its own complications. Due to this I’m unable to work, socialize with people outside a few, participate in what most people think of as daily living. I’m not a shut-in though I would be if it weren’t for some exceptional people in my life. 

I’ve been dealing with mental illness in some way since i was about eleven but I used to work, got my degree, ran an at-one-point large online support group & resource for those who engage(d) in self-destructive behaviors, advocated for and participated in studies involving self-destructive behaviors, media stuff like interviews for articles, wrote content that I put online, all of which also involved being sysadmin and programming, 

I shut down the support group/website in Fall 2016 after having run it since my teens and turned my attention to this blog, some other related social media projects, and reading lit, side interests that kept growing larger and that I wasn’t burned out on.

Sorry for writing so much but I have extra time for reading for the above reasons, It’s not something I do entirely for pleasure but neither is it to just fill up time. I rarely look at my dash or just browse for pleasure because of the guilt.

So I can’t answer your questions because from the sound of it we live in entirely different worlds. Again, sorry for writing all this.

tumblr’s new safe mode sucks a whole entire Ass lol every other post on my dash is fucking blocked from my view and I KNOW there isn’t that much nsfw content on my dash at all,,, I’m just a gay who wants to look at gay stuff but I guess I can’t participate in my own community since I’m still a child and gayness is inappropriate for my delicate sensibilities 🙃🙃🙃

PIE’s #1 following spree!

aghhhh okay, my dash has been kind of dead lately, so i really need some blogs to follow!!! i’ve never done this type of spree before so bear with me if i’m not doing this perfectly, but yeah! basically, if you post any content (mainly art/graphics/gifs/edits) about the following, please reblog this post and tag what you post in your tags so i know what to look out for on your blog! also, if i end up not following you — don’t feel discouraged, i’m sure your blog lovely!! i’m just very picky about what kind of stuff do i want to see on my dash.

now, for the content that i’m into/am looking looking for:

-  91 days
- akagami no shirayukihime
- bungou stray dogs
- danganronpa
- drakengard 3
- erased
- final fantasy (13 and 15 in specifically)
- hakuouki
- inuyasha
- k project
- kyoukai no kanata
- nagi no asukara
- nier (1 & 2)

- servamp
- shingeki no kyojin
- spiritpact (soul contract)
- sports anime (haikyuu!!, free!, prince of stride, yuri on ice, etc.)
- ten count

bonus points if:

- you have a tagging system (i’d say this is a must, but i’ll consider your blog even if you don’t have it!)
- you’re willing to be friends/are already following me! 

i would kindly ask my dear mutuals to reblog this to spread the word, i love you guys so!!! <3

thank you! <3

okay, i got tired of the slow dash and the content of it because look, my anxious ass can’t see the same content for a long time, and i want more mutuals, so, please, like/reblog if you post mostly:

  • aftg because i just finished the books and i’m like okay violeta, you can’t reread it AT THIS POINT of the school year 
  • basically books (pjo, trc, aadtsotu, tsoa, idk, just ya lit in general, i would ask for lgbt main characters but i already know how this website works lmao) 
  • tv shows (skam, the get down, u know)
  • aesthetically stuff, photos, idk
  • AESTHETICALLY anime edits??? (khr, yoi, k project, ghibli movies…) 
  • im still in need of mythology lol 
  • poetry 
  • lyrics/edits (halsey, troye sivan, lorde, years & years…)
goodbye.

it was a good run.

i’m going on an indefinite hiatus from tumblr. if you want a detailed explanation as to why, you can read this post and i guess this one too. beware, though, they’re quite lengthy and detailed. i am bidding farewell to a very important part of my life so i felt it was necessary to get out all my emotions in order to move on.

i also apologize for making a lot of those situations about me when i wasn’t a part of them, but i can’t help my feelings. observing terrible things that happened to people i care about from afar has taken it’s toll on me. seeing people in pain and being unable to console them no matter how much you wish you could take their struggling away is some of the worst pain in itself.

despite ending on such a glum note, i cherish the time i had on this blog with all of you. it was wonderful and i’m glad i got to interact with such amazing people. it was a good stress reliever while my physical health kept deteriorating, and through the family issues that popped up in recent months. it was a fun way for me to share my content with others and bond over our favourite groups.

i’m so fond of everyone that decided to hit that follow button. it meant and still means the world to me. i appreciate every single person that took time out of their day to read my work, to send me asked, to reply to my posts, to support me. i will never will be able to fully express my gratitude. just know that i appreciate you so much.

i’d also like to mention some people.

these are only a fraction of the blogs i wish to thank. you made my experience on tumblr so much better and i enjoyed having you all on my dash. seeing posts from you made me smile and i’m glad i was fortunate enough to stumble across your blogs.

my content will remain up save for my art which i have already deleted. and that is not an invitation to steal my work as i will be keeping an eye out for plagarizers. i will be leaving all my networks but this blog will stay up in case i ever feel like coming back. who knows, it could be in two days or when there’s a comeback i need to yell into the void about or maybe never. if ever, i don’t think it will be anytime soon. if any mutuals would like to keep contact with me, please message me and maybe we can exchange social media handles.

i’ve thought long and hard. i didn’t want to leave, i didn’t want to let go. i tried my hardest to detach myself from my doubts, but i also have to think about my own well being. i have to think about what’s best for me. this was my last resort but with all the progress i’ve made the past few months, i cannot sacrifice my mental health to stay on this site.

i wish you all the very best. i hope you all live relatively happy lives and work to achieve your goals. i’ll always be rooting for every one of you, even if i’m not on tumblr. again, if you would like to keep in touch, please message me. i’ll be here for another 48 hours before i log out for good. i will always love and cherish all of you.

i’m sorry it’s come to this. i will miss this space but i don’t want to be here anymore, at least not right now.

goodbye.

I'm so happy that you are rebloging so much stuffs, I like seeing you happy <3 and thank you, I was feeling down but the Finn post was just to pure

yeah, I feel a little bit better and good content on my dash is making me smile and thanks to my friends I already am at a better spot than a few days ago. 
I’m glad it helped you too <3

when you didn’t want to start watching the season 3 of yowapeda because you can’t deal well with having to wait for new episodes for a whole week but you get to watch till ep 24 in time to watch the last one with the rest of the fandom because you watched the 24 episodes in 2 days

I feel like the bumbleby community is dead at this point in time.... I want the fandom like it was before bmblb....

All it will take is the reunion in the show to bring it all back. That’s the problem with the song is everyone latched onto a song (just like they did with Arryn’s tweet), when it’s the content of the show that matters more than anything else. I still see active bees posts on my dash and new arts and people excited. Don’t let the fandom make or break anything for you because this stuff is going to rise and fall every season/off season. 

It’s certainly not dead though. The tag may be trash but tags usually are. Bees fans are still here. 

Hey! My dash is kinda meh lately so could you reblog this and tag what you post from the list so I can check your blog out? (I’ll be following with my main blog, @galraempireofficial)

  • Voltron
    • Klance
    • Hance
    • Anything with Lance, especially angst bc I like to suffer
    • Hunk!!
    • Shance is gr9 too and shklance is aight
    • But I’d prefer if you’re blog is relatively discourse free! I don’t have the energy to deal with voltron drama! 
  • Haikyuu!!
    • Oisuga
    • BoKuroo
    • Anything with Daishou tbh
    • Also I love Oikawa and he’ll always have a special place in my heart
  • Other fandoms:
    • Noragami
    • Soul Eater
    • Yuri!!! on Ice
      • Again, preferably minimal discourse with this fandom please
    • Naruto
      • NaruGaa
      • Literally anything with Gaara or the sand sibs and I’ll probs love it
  • General fandom inspired aesthetics!
    • I love voltron moodboards
    • Also I have a separate aesthetic blog for nature stuff and I love to see that around!! (It’s @f0rresting, for those who are curious)

Hey guys, I wanted to do something nice for my mutuals and thought since with all the negativity I could do a compliment and let you all know that you’re all appreciated and awesome. People in bold will be my main cupcake mermaid crew who I love and will fight for!  Please ignore the hideous banner! This will be in alphabetical order! If I miss a mutual out! I’m sorry. 

If there are similar compliments it is:

a. because it is all very true! You’re all incredible and there are not enough words to describe it. 

And b. because I am awful at words and English.

I spent the last hour or so going through my mainblog’s “the foxhole court” tag, starting from when I joined the fandom in January 2016, looking for a specific headcanon and -
It is so bizarre to see posts with like, thirty notes, being the norm. Posts that started fandom-wide conventions such as the josten-minyard rivalry getting seventy notes. The fact is I joined in a transitional stage, when the fandom was turning from a small group of people and @coldsaturn who I bet Nora could mention by name to a fandom that was so widespread that posts could get thousands of notes. In a way, when I joined, the fandom was both at the same time. I remember getting tagged with a MASS of people in a post that explained that we should use tfc and not aftg as a tag.
And it’s weird, because most of my fandoms are fleeting. I’m obsessed with being obsessed with stuff.
But this book series has stuck with me for a year and a half. And I’ve seen this fandom on my dash every day. All the content and the people. I’ve dabbled in creating my own content for the fandom, and it has received a moderate appreciation, which, considering the amount of it being so low, was great.
And I just wanted to say: thank you for a year and a half of discussions and headcanons and fanfiction and fanart. I love this fandom, and here’s for another year and a half.

anonymous asked:

Hey, I just wanted to say I love hp and this blog is cool, but I just don't feel comfortable with all the discourse :( I blog almost exclusively on mobile so I can't block or blacklist non hp stuff, and I think a lot of ppl have the same problem. would you consider having another blog for political/discourse stuff? I really like the hp content, but right now discoursey posts are all over my dash. Obviously it is your blog so I can't tell you what to do, just a suggestion. Have a nice day!

Hey, if you use mobile, you could consider using the app/website “Washboard” which allows a blacklist for mobile. Other than that, we’re not really comfortable with just… not handling any form of discourse on our blog, as we think it is useful for the community as a whole. We think that by having a discourse sideblog, it would make little change to the community as a whole, because bigots have no intention of following a blog specifically to be told they’re wrong. Whilst somebody who doesn’t like it can block it or, otherwise, scroll past, somebody who finds it useful won’t be able to access it if we stop producing it, and people who find it useful by happenstance definitely won’t find it any more.

If you feel like you have to unfollow that’s completely chill and we get that, though. Thank you.
