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.

plumriice  asked:

I’m just a tiny frog in the gigantic pond that is the simblr community!! fo reals, i am no legend, there are a bajillion simblr blogs out there that are a thousand times more legendary than mine!! I’m still a little bean of a blog- I still fangirl whenever @zauglom@femmesim & @nicotinc like my posts because they are my simming idols!!! & I legit died when WMS first followed me 💀

So girrrrl, why wouldn’t I follow you!? I’m here to support all simblr blogs!! no matter how big or small!! If I like your content I’ll give you a follow!! Also!! I usually follow people who regularly like/reply to my posts, because they are giving me love?? so I gotta give some back!!  Also sometimes if I see those “Hey, I’m a new simblr” posts, I give people a follow because hey!!! they need support and love like everyone else!! I just think back to when I first started my simblr and every single time I got a follower I nearly cried with happiness (which I still pretty much do, but w/e) !!! 💕

How to make a legacy family page.

Hi guys i’ve created a mini tutorial on how to create a page on your simblr because i get asked about this a lot (its my most frequently asked question). And i always end up repeating myself lol so i decided to create a tutorial : ) its probably shitty because i’m not very good at instructions lol. 

1. You need to find the edit theme button on your simblr, it usually in the top right corner of your page. 

Once you have clicked on  it is should take you to a page that looks like this 

Scroll down and click add a page

this will lead you to 

What you need to then do is type in whatever the name of your page is so for example if you wanted a specific page for you legacy you would type tagged/legacy as highlighted above

* You only put tagged if the page you want to show is a page with that specific tag.*

If you wanted to do a downloads page, for example, you would put downloads (just like that (nothing else). (explained below) 

After this make sure you give your page a title and make sure “show a link to this page” is selected as seen below 

Then press save. 

Depending on your theme you may not need to do anymore but…

If you are using a custom theme the page may not show up in order to get it to show up on a custom theme you need to go back to the edit theme page and then scroll down to where you see links..

this will allow you put the name of your link and the link to it. 

under link 2 you will put the name of the page so in this picture this is my downloads page. 

As i mentioned above you will put /tagged/downloads if the page you want it to be directed to is tagged as such (e.g #downloads). (i really hope this bit makes sense.LOL) 

After all this press Save. 

your pages should like this on your main page (test them to see if they lead to where you want them to.) 

This may look different depending on the theme you use. 

i really really hope this makes sense!! Happy Simming. 

So yesterday I was tagged in a post by ‘Lunalisa / Simmakerluna’ warning me and some other people because we didn’t answer their asks..(ik, what the actual fuck) The one time I got an ask for this person I answered it privately, so they just wanted to gain attention by me answering the ask publicly. In the post they sent themself an anon asking wich simblrs blocked them “for no reason” (even though they made some very fucked up jokes, some including holocaust jokes.) and wich simblrs are not answering his asks. So then they continued to send these other people they tagged anon asks calling them hypocrites because “they didnt answer their asks”. So now this person made a whole post basically doing what Plumbob Positivity is doing but only for small simblrs because “big simblrs dont look at them” and “Plumbob Positivity is doing them wrong”. And now this person keeps on doing problematic shit. I sent them a message telling them to not tag me in those posts to “warn me”, because wtf, and they just answered with “OK.”, but they continued to send anon asks to simblrs calling them hypocrites for not answering their asks (publicly, because I answered privately and they were still “warning me”). So yeah, this is a mess.

I’m not asking anyone to go send this person hate, don’t, but I’m just sick of their shit.
