Lana CC Finds blog exists for almost 3 years, during this time we collected and organized nearly all of the Custom Content for Sims 4, Sims 3 and even sims 2. This blog has already over 100 000 posts, it required a lot of time, effort and a huge amount of hard work.
For all this time I’ve never complained, never tried to start any conflicts, never threw any accusations. Over the past 2 months, there have been certain situations, that brought the need to write this letter.
1) At first
Tumblr Community Management (tumblr) sent me this message as to why my blog was terminated “In the future please refrain from from posting links or content from sites that violate our policies on Spam & Deceptive links”
Now…the question… was I the only person who did such reblogs?
No, there’s hundreds of blogs who make reblogs of such posts and yet it was only Lana CC Finds who got terminated.
The answer is simple - someone complained about my blog on purpose.
2) Further there were several posts of certain simblrs trying to discredit the blog Lana CC Finds.
3) Then similar attacks acquired on http://simsecret.livejournal.com/ Here’s one of them…
4) And now one more attack. What do these words mean? Is this not a threat?
I understand that the goals of CC Fids blogs are also different, some want to get personal fame and popularity, to help distribute their own CC (personally created work).
Others simply collect the CC for their favorite game, help little-known authors find their followers, support creators by spreading their work via reblogs. And simply create a place where it is possible to come (I do it as well, I go so in my own blog and use tags to search for CC) and find everything that is created by various creators for all the sims games in ONE place -
Lana CC Finds
Please help to save and protect Lana CC Finds blog from such attacks and bullying!
I see a lot of these asks with other Simmers and in the distant past have had a few too. New to the Simblr world and want to start a Simming blog that is popular etc. Now I’m not a hugely popular Simblr, I have around 3600 followers I think. They’re far bigger out there, but the main advice is this;
DO WHAT YOU FREAKING LOVE
Whatever you absolutely adore be it Vulcans/Star Trek (like me), Berry Sims like @berrysweetboutique, super hyper colourful aliens like @divadoom, chill Maxis Match like @servobride, loving everything with alpha and Maxis Match like @maimouth or maybe you’re more into Vampires or horror stories or reality TV like @quiddity-jones. Maybe your passion is storytelling, which can be done MANY different ways using the game we all love. Choose what you adore and you can’t go wrong, that will show in your imagery etc.
Can’t say this enough. New to Simblr? Notice how other people tag their posts. It gives your followers a choice to follow some posts and avoid others. Also tags can be used for people being able to find a story or legacy etc super easily on your Tumblr. Lastly, don’t tag anything as a custom content (s4CC) post if it’s not. That’s just begging for people to be pissed off with you.
After all the shit I put my mamãe through when I was younger I’ll honor her forever but its still good to have an official holiday for it. I’ll never forget growing up and hearing people tell you “for a black woman, you are very beautiful” or call you dirty and ugly for being poor. You worked your ass off to take care of me and Mariah and I’ll return the favor every day for the rest of my life. Feliz dia de Mães.
