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.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any tips for writers who want to write sim stories but don't know how to get them posted in order?

Hi Nonny! I’ll be honest, I wasn’t 100% sure what this question was asking, but I don’t like to give advice that isn’t at least somewhat well-thought out. So here are my tips for starting out and how to format/order your posts (or something like that.)

Jade’s Super Awesome Tips For Getting Your Simblr Story/Legacy Off the Ground i.e. Potentially Helpful Formatting Tips For New Simblr Writers

First of all: If you want to do a sims story, DO IT. They’re great creative outlets, and someone will want to read it! And remember, it is your blog, so do whatever you want, and don’t feel pressured to have to make things a certain way. But, if you want to be organized, these are some guidelines: 

1. Identify your posts in some way. Doesn’t matter how. Some simblr writers use episode, some use chapters, some use a mixture of both (i.e. Chapters for longer portions, like an entire arc, and episodes for each individual scene. Example: Chapter 1: Episode 1, Chapter 1: Episode 2… etc.). This is helpful in letting regular readers know if they’ve missed a post, and follow along linearly. It’s just helpful all around.

2. Linkage. My dudes, this is so important, which is why I made a previous post about it. A lot of simblr writers are already doing previous/next links on their posts, and that’s GREAT. Everyone should definitely be doing this. Personally, I really think the movement should expand to include “beginning” links. On my own posts I have all three, a link to to the start of that particular story, the previous post in the sequence, and I update all posts to include the “next” link once I have it posted. Tumblr’s post formatting makes this SO easy, there’s no real reason not to do it, because it’s super helpful to readers, and trust me, people want to read from the beginning. Maybe not everyone, but you also don’t want to turn people away because they couldn’t find the start of your cool story. So, I repeat, all stories should have this format: Beginning/ Previous / Next links on each post. I’m beating a dead horse here, but it’s so nice, as a reader, just to be able to flip through someone’s story via easy linking, because I don’t have to break my immersion of the story by tabbing out or looking around, or scrolling through your posts to find the next one in line.

  • Helpful side note: If you’re the type of writer who posts things out of chronological order, using these links would still be a good idea, because you can go back and edit them at any time, and you can link to any post on your tumblr, so if you post something later down the line that you think should have happened at an earlier time in the story, you can just rearrange your links to reflect your correct chronological timeline.  
  • Here is my tutorial on how to link your story posts with beginning/next/previous links!

3. Tag correctly. Some simblr writers have more intensive tagging systems than I do, so I won’t speak too much about this, because as a reader, I don’t really use tags to navigate new stories I read. But it is still important to tag all posts in a story the same, so either with the title or legacy name, and then you can tag individual chapters or episodes if you want to. Also be sure to tag if you’re doing a story, or a legacy, or whatever type of story. I use #ts4 story #sims story #ts4 storytelling, there’s a whole other slew of legacy tags which I don’t use, cuz obviously I am not a legacy simblr.

4. Have a table of contents or story page of some sort, especially if you’re doing multiple stories/legacies at once, but even if you’re not, it will help people who are lurking around your profile navigate through your story. If you’d like an example of how to format them, here is my story page and here are my table of contents pages.  As I am not the be all and end all for formatting, I think another great example is @beverlyallitsims index page (she made it SO easy to catch up on her MLSC story and now I’m just another Randy fangirl. I’m a living testament to this process working wonders!). 

5. Billboard advertising. Okay, now this one is totally optional, but if you are doing a legacy or story, it’s a really nice little touch to have a banner or some tell, even if it’s just a small one (you don’t need to be some Photoshop wizard), to let people know that this is an ongoing thing you’re doing, not just a random collection of photos (those are cool too!), but some people go looking specifically for stories and/or legacies to read, so having a banner or something with your story title or legacy name (generation number) is a good idea, too. 

Bottom Line: Make your stuff accessible! Unless, of course, you don’t actually want people to read it lol, which is totally fine, too. Some people like to use their blogs as a personal outlet, and don’t need to be noticed. But there’s nothing wrong with trying to be visible, and if you do have a small pool of readers, be generous and help them along. Total strangers want to read your work, put in a little extra time to make sure their stay is a pleasant one. You know, before you rip out their hearts with your edgy theatrical sim-drama. 

Again, idk if this answers your question, Nonny. But I do want to help! If anyone has any questions or is looking for advice, feel free to message me, either privately, or on Nonny, I don’t mind. My inbox is always open. 

The Two Week Notice

Previous

3:18AM

All i could do was sigh in relief after we finished. Cam and i had gone three rounds and i was exhausted. My sex drive probably could’ve gone three more, but physically that was all i could give. I plopped my body onto his, sweaty but satisfied. He seemed pretty satisfied too. We both just laid there not even moving or saying a word for the first few minutes. Cam had worn me out, yet again. 

I stayed on his chest as he caressed my back with his fingertips, relaxing me even more. I wasn’t used to cuddling after sex. Stefon never would. He’d bust his nut, turn over and go to sleep, most of the time leaving me unfinished and un-appeased. But i liked how considerate Cameron was, he always made sure i climaxed (which i had no problem doing with his stroke game). I was glad he took me up on my offer of a friends with benefits relationship, it was nice to have someone finally be able to scratch the itch that had been left unattended for over three months. I felt like a fiend, craving him when he wasn’t around. 

“I needed that..” i said finally breaking the silence

He smirked. “I thought you were asleep. You got quiet.

“No… just laying here enjoying you.”

He continued running his fingers down my spine for a few more minutes before he started  moving around. He slipped out from under me and walked into my bathroom. i laid there waiting on him to come back to the bed so we could finally go to sleep. To my surprise, he walked back out the bathroom and began reaching for his clothes. 

“Where you goin?” I asked popping my head up 

i gotta go.” he answered straight faced.

“you don’t have to leave Cam, i’m not kicking you out. It’s late. I want you to stay, we can rest then go again when the sun comes up, maybe even take a shower later.” i said smiling mischievously

As tempting as that sounds, I actually can’t. I have to report to the Base this morning, like 8-ish.

“oh… well why didn’t you tell me? i wouldn’t have called you over so late.”

Nah you good, I wanted it too, so i’m not trippin. I wanted to get in one more session before i had to report for two weeks.

“Two Weeks??”

Yeah… that’s my new schedule now. Two weeks on, two weeks off. It’s not bad. get it over all at once and be done till the next time.

I put my head back down on the bed mad af. Just as i start getting some consistent dick, he leaves for two weeks. But i understood. His job was important and i’d rather have him gone for two weeks doing something legitimate than running through Brooklyn’s streets facing danger at every block. But one thing’s for sure, after being with Cam, a vibrator isn’t gonna do it anymore. I need the real thing. Shit, he was turning me into a damn junkie and he was my drug of choice.

I watched as he got dressed, putting on his sweats first then searching the room for his hoodie that had been tossed carelessly in the heat of the moment. I sat up on the side of the bed and put my clothes back on so i could walk him to the door. 

“This was a literal booty call.” i said laughing as we walked to my front door.

Ha. But hey, that’s what you wanted right?” He asked changing his tone to sarcasm.

“I guess so…” i answered feeling slightly salty 

He stood close towering over me and grabbed a handful of ass. “So you gonna be able to manage for two weeks till i get back?”

“Of course. I’ll just call my other dude.” I said being petty trying to get him back.

He tried to hide it, but i saw his face change to a serious demeanor. 

“I’m kidding!” i said laughing and giving him a hug.

Got jokes huh?

“Yep. You not the only one.” I snarked referring to his sarcasm earlier.

Touche.

“Keep your phone on you Officer, you just might get some pictures.”

He raised his eyebrow in excitement. “Oh forreal? Alright then. Will do.” 

In the back of my head, i liked the fact that Cam got a lil jealous but at the same time, i didn’t want him catching feelings. He was the type of dick that was hard to find and i wasn’t about to let feelings get in the way. In one way i’m glad he didn’t spend the rest of the night because that might lead him into thinking things were deeper than they were. We needed to keep this a strictly physical relationship. Not only for him but for me too. Cam was a good guy and i didn’t want to ruin his heart by me being stuck on Stefon still. As much as i didn’t want to believe or admit it, if Stefon got his act together, it would take time, but i’d probably take him back and i didn’t want Cam to become collateral damage in the process. Stefon was my first real love and as much as i tried to stunt in front of the people who knew what was going on, i loved him more than even I could understand.

Cam stood there for a moment admiring my face like it was the Mona Lisa, then kissed my forehead. “I’ll see you in two weeks babygirl.” He said as he proceeded to walk out the door.
