General thank yous and replies:

Thank you to everyone who liked or commented on my vacation pictures and videos last week!  I really needed it.  I try to keep it sims related on here, but I was excited.

Also, BIG THANK YOU to people who recently followed me, messaged me, or otherwise helped me find new sims stories to read!  It is greatly appreciated.

@simmering-pancakes & @108sims Thank you for your support of my continued education! :-)

@treason-and-plot Cato had absolutely no interest in that conversation.  He just wants to be left aloneeeee.

@108sims Yeah, he is pretty messed up.  It is unfortunate.  I blame myself.

@108sims Thank you for thinking Colton and Ani are cute!  I happen to agree with you!  It was a nice little detour into people just being cute and straightforward for a while.

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.

Thank you.

I’m gonna be really sappy for a minute.

Guys. I am so happy right now. I’m not being abused anymore, I finally have my GED after trying to get it for three years, I’m starting college, I’m renting an apartment, I have the most beautiful date mate in existence, my pronouns and name are both used and respected, and (a bit materialistic) I have fast internet.

I’ve been in Pittsburgh for a week, and already I feel like I’ve done more with my life in that small amount of time than I have my entire life. I’ve gone outside almost every day for a week!

Things are really looking up, and I want to thank all of you who donated money or bought skins from me. Because of you, I was able to purchase my plane ticket to Pittsburgh, pay for my GED, buy my monthly bus pass, and pay for my state ID. You have helped me more than I can ever describe.

I love you all,

Riley Jameson

Wassup Tumblr!

I’m not too sure how all this works, I don’t really fucks with social media like that,But I thought why not try? 

My name is Cedric McCall or you can just call me Ced (Said), I’m 23 years young. I was born n raised in Detroit,MI, but currently reside in St. Louis,MO. I intentionally I moved here to help my grandmom out but shockingly this place grew on me 😂 So I ended up gettin’ a job as a professional trainer at this upscale gym and well here I am now. But uhm I’m ready to meet new people and make a few friends so don’t hesitate to hmu.

So yesterday I was sitting at my desk at work eating a rice cracker when my rice cracker became very suddenly super-crunchy (and blood flavoured)  and next thing you know I’d spat out one of my teeth, or the sad remnants of it. Ewww! 

So off I went today to the dentist, and she said it couldn’t be saved, which was fine with me, because it’s at the back and you can’t even really see the hole, really. And she drilled the rest of it out and cleaned it all up and it didn’t even hurt. And there’s no point to this story except that while I was lying there I was visited by my muse and there’s an image in my head I can’t shake of Roy’s brother Douglas with a shotgun, so I have to go in game and try and workshop it and maybe use it for a flashback scene because it’s driving me to distraction. So I’ll let you know how I go. 

YOU GUYS I’M STILL MAD

It turns out the reason I can’t acces the files on my external hard drive is because it’s formatted to a mac, which I don’t have anymore. So the only way to access it is with an ubuntu system, so now I need to find out if there’s a way I can install ubuntu on my laptop while still being able to swich back to windows whenever I like

I’M MAD ABOUT IT even though ubuntu is really cool and i’ve always secretly wanted to try it

STATUS UPDATE

Hey Groovers! I’ll be on holiday in beautiful, rugged, and freezing AF
Tasmania till Saturday 8th of July. I anticipate that I’ll still be able to lurk
on my phone, but there will be no story updates until after that date. (Two updates that I am really looking forward to posting are Raj’s meeting with Mia, and Roy’s barbecue. And then there’s also The Truth About Brent, and chapters to be written for Naomi and Alex, and Audrey and Seph, and the hard-working ladies of The Pink Pony …and finally, after only about a year, it will be revealed why Violet was a no-show at the hotel that night. If anyone still cares, lulz.) See you soon, Lovelies!! I LOVE YOUSE ALL!
