spamming your dash with the pretty

Greetings, everyone. I hope you’re having a wonderful day. I’m here tonight to present you with a short guide to Tumblr for witches who may be interested in starting a blog here. 

This post is obviously geared towards witches wandering the internet, but maybe some who are already here on Tumblr will enjoy it, too. I’ll be talking about the benefits to joining the Tumblr witch community, as well as some tips for getting started! Here we go!

What’s a “Tumblr witch?”

There’ve been culture-related magazines that have done huge articles on “Tumblr witches” and the witchcraft community on Tumblr, painting the whole thing as some kind of fashion trend or weird millennial hangout. 

I’ve been involved with the Tumblr witch community for three years, and I can say that most of these articles don’t quite reflect what the witchcraft community on Tumblr is like. 

A lot of them tend to paint it as an ideologically, culturally, and aesthetically monolithic trend, when in reality, it’s not. While it’s true that many Tumblr-going witches enjoy similar things or share fashion trends, witchcraft itself is not a trend, nor a fashion statement, nor is it the sole focus of the community.

In reality, a “Tumblr witch” is just what the name implies. A “Tumblr witch” is a witch who uses Tumblr as a blogging platform/CMS. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s true that there’s a large community of us, but we’re quite diverse

While many of us are young (millennials), not all of us as (I’m not), nor are we all of the same religion or mindset. You might even say that “Tumblr Witch” isn’t even a useful term, at all! Still, Tumblr is a great content management system for witches.

I think what makes Tumblr strong as a blogging platform for witches is that there’s an extremely diverse community here already in existence. So, in short, don’t buy into too much nonsense about what a “Tumblr witch” does or believes, because everyone’s unique. 

Again, the only real way I can see to define a “Tumblr witch” is just “a witch who uses Tumblr.” It’s as simple as that! It’s definitely not some kind of tradition or mindset for witches - it’s just a matter of what blogging platform the witch uses.

I see you reblogging crazy ex girlfriend all the time and it looks like a show I might like, can you tell me a little bit of what's it about? I trust your judgement cause you have A+ taste in shows (:

I appreciate how you said “reblogging all the time” and not “have utterly spammed my dash with this absurd-looking show, what the hell, Em?” and I thank you for the kindness. <33

The Netflix summary of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is “Still pining for Josh, the boy who dumped her ages ago, whip-smart lawyer Rebecca jettisons her New York life and moves to California to win him back.” Yeah, not exactly appealing. And also not really what the show is about. But I can forgive them, since it’s pretty hard to encapsulate what this show is in a brief sentence. Because yes, surface-level, it is a dark-ish comedy musical satire about a lawyer who quits her job literally just as she’s about to be made junior partner after a chance encounter with her ex and moves across the country to be with him and finally find true happiness, but it’s about so much more.

It’s about deconstructing tropes, particularly those found in romantic comedies, including, you guessed it, the “crazy ex-girlfriend,” and examining how said tropes normalize irrational, harmful behaviors and actions in the name of love, which, PS, is no guarantee of real happiness. Tropes and stereotypes get subverted and blown apart and shredded and it is fascinating because you never know quite what to expect. 

It’s about a woman who literally sees her life as a series of musical numbers, especially when her emotions are running high, which leads to pastiches of pretty much any musical genre you can think of. Boy bands? Done. Fred and Ginger? You got it. Big Broadway send ups? Yup! And no topic is off limits! In just two short seasons, we’ve covered the horrors women go through to get ready for a date, romanticized depictions of depression, celebrating being bisexual, falling for your sex buddy, intrusive thoughtsthat self-loathing feeling when you fuck EVERYTHING up, the truth about having big boobs, and the more joyful side of UTI’s. And that’s (literally) not even the half of it. 

It’s about people dealing with mental illness in a way that is brutally honest and sensitive but also funny at the same time. It makes the content approachable without diminishing the seriousness of the condition. (Speaking as someone who struggles with mental illness herself, I find these songs in particular to be both painfully accurate and remarkably reassuring.) And it’s about the long-term ramifications of growing up with emotionally abusive and neglectful parents. 

It’s about relationships of all kinds – romantic, familial, platonic. They’re complicated and messy at times, rewarding and emotionally fulfilling at others. And while yes, romance is a major plot point, we are constantly reminded that while yes, there’s romance and it’s a major plot point, the most important relationship in the show is between our lady protagonist and her female best friend. (Oh, but did I mention that the healthiest relationship on the show is between a bisexual man and a gay man? Because it is. And that there was a stretch of eps without a single straight white man? Because that happened.) 

It’s about an antiheroine who does objectively terrible things and who consistently makes awful life decisions, who’s impulsive and self-centered, but is still a good person just trying to find happiness, who is surrounded by similarly nuanced and beautifully flawed characters who are also at a crossroads in their lives and trying to figure out what steps they need to take to be happy. And while the situations they find themselves in may seem over the top, they’re also so relatable.

There’s a lot to unpack with this show. The content can be pretty heavy at times, and it can be painful to watch these people you come to love sabotage themselves and struggle so much with their dreams. But it’s also just such a smart comedy that thrives on taking risks, so trust me – you’ll be laughing nearly the entire time. And it’s so fantastical and absurdist at times (dream ghosts, anybody?) that it makes for great escapist TV and is literally the only reason I’m still alive and thriving post January 20, 2017.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is honestly like nothing else on TV, and you may be in a bit of shock when you first start watching. (Literally, my first time I swear I kept pinching myself and asking “is this an ACTUAL show I am watching right now what is happening HOW IS THIS HAPPENING?!”) But trust me – there are so many reasons to watch this show and it took all my willpower to not just scream incoherently in this response for 10K+ words. So go on. Give it a shot. I bet before too long you’ll be falling in love and singing right along with the rest of ’em.

i’m gonna post these together instead of spamming your dashes by publishing them all separately, since they’re all sort of along the same lines.

i think it’s pretty clear that i’m not like…blowing things out of proportion or making something out of nothing. this isn’t even all of the unpublished asks i have on this subject. people are uncomfortable with a lot of this stuff and so it’s past time that we ALL take a look at the things we’re doing that may or may not be contributing to this.

like yeah, fandom should be a fun place, but that doesn’t mean not calling out sketchy shit when you see it just because it might start discourse, because that completely dismisses the feelings of a whole other group of people

eirianerisdar? liveandletrain?

@eirianerisdar: You had me at SW and Obi Wan, who just so happens to be my favorite sarcastic/ devil-may-care/ handsome prequel Jedi!! Also your theme is really pretty?? The color palette is fabulous!

@liveandletrain: One of the sweetest people ever! Seriously you only ever seem to post positive things (from what I see) and I really appreciate that! Life’s too short for negativity and a lack of Star Wars Shakespeare. Psssst… you can spam my dash with SW Shakespeare!

Ola ola nice headcanon there ;’D *wiggles brow* And I wish I could spam your dash with art, rather than textposts, so …here you go, a ton of horrible doodles and some more. These are just thumbnails I sketch out if I have an idea but I’m pretty fond of these, even if they just chickenscribble - sometimes these end up having far more spice and soul than the clean art :’D ♥ I like chickenscribble yo! *also, thank you very much ///T_T///*

And a special fanservice one …

Throwback to one of the most beautiful colors I had in my hair. I’m considering going back to this, really! And listen… everyone should know how much I love Jisoo. Let me spam the love. 😂

I was tagged by the best of thighs, @scoupsthighs. I support the “we’re not mutuals but I’m gonna tag you anyway” system, because it actually is so nice to know that another person thinks of us, even though we don’t share the mutuality! It’s a nice feeling, heh~. Thanks for the tag, my dear! ♡

I’m tagging my most recent mutuals + my honeybuns!: @jeonghanii @seokwifey @wonwuu-u @whywonwoo @fortheloveofjisoo @joshuashong @saltyjeonghan @luheir @jihooon @pure-jisoo @hongiisoo @squishywonu @soonhosh @wonmuu @seventeenscarrot @minegyuu @wonplus @woojeez @pledisofficial @junniehui @svnten @cafewoozi @17tvs @shuasoo @officiallythe8 @jeongahn @adorexuminghao @peachgyus @17vernsol @1jh @jeonqhan-senpai @minhoetastic @kriswu 

IF YOU ARE STRICTLY AN AC BLOG (and tag your non ac posts) PLEASE LIKE/REBLOG THIS AND I WILL FOLLOW YOU ALL

it’s sad that I made this blog to be strictly AC and my whole dash is everything except animal crossing.

anonymous asked:

personally i love getting my dash spammed w cats ahah.. (i hope you are having a wonderful day your blog makes me and many other people smile a lot)

Thank you for your message! I’m glad that you don’t mind- I hope that there is no more spam though because I’ve received some pretty rude messages about how the queue is dumping posts on people’s dashboards. 

Have a wonderful day too!

So, the day is finally here…
Valentine’s Day.

Instead of making a follow forever of all my favorite blogs and everyone I love, I am instead going to make one of all the people who I shall include in my galactic army (because that is how I show my love for you… by sparing your life and drafting you into my galactic army for conquest ♡). After reaching my follower goal so quickly after remaking like really this blog is less than a year old what are you guys doing, I decided it is time to spread the shadows of my wings and move on to my next phase of taking over the universe– muhwahaha!! So the following blogs are part of my crew and fleet, and together we will be fighting amongst the infinite stars!

‟Today the skies are clear and the waves are high–this battle will decide the destiny of the empire! And believe me, this is just the beginning; we’ll vaporize anything that gets in our way! The SOS Brigade will make its name known to the ends of the universe!!“
 – as quoted by my goddess wife Haruhi Suzumiya

I am eternally indebted to one of my bestest friends Nabila for making the photoset above, she captured the beauty and subtle grace of my wife perfectly, but more importantly she is perfect.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kyoto Animation for giving me many reasons to cry this Valentine’s Day coughmatsuokarincoughcough. A thank you and kisses to everyone who believed in me, I couldn’t have become super powerful enough to destroy planets and make it to the top without you guys. 
But more importantly, thanks to all my followers for putting up with spams of weird things, and my rants in my tags and such. I’m always trying to improve my blog for the better and you guys following me and telling me nice and supportive things always makes me happy, you guys are the true heros not some nerd like me. 

Wishing everyone a happy, chocolate-filled Valentine’s Day, packed with cool space mecha fights and moe anime girls! ♡

–your fleet captain, Kiki

Olicity fans - please reblog this announcement throughout the start time tomorrow for our latest campaign!

After a very successful reblog last Wednesday (500 in an hour), we are doing it again! We need ALL of your help to make our goal of 100K in May (whoever came up with that number was VERY ambitious - but we can do it!)

Here’s how it works: much like the Twitter trends by smoakandarrow, this will be a concerted effort on Tumblr to reblog the Olicity kiss from 3x01 FOR ONE HOUR (times above). (SOURCE HERE)

To add some fun, we have been doing “Olicity/Arrow Quotes” in the reblogs (idea by geniewithwifi), and pretty much finishing each other’s sentences - so it’s more than just pressing “reblog” over and over again - it’s interactive!

Come join the fun! (And start to queue your kisses NOW! - hooksandarrows queued over FORTY for our last one)

PLEASE NOTE: If you are not inclined to join in, PLEASE, rather than unfollowing us overenthusiastic bloggers for an hours’ worth of spam, consider blacklisting “Olicity Kiss Reblog” instead, and your dash will remain (hopefully) kiss-free or kiss-light during the hour (as long as everyone tags properly).

VIXX Horoscopes: PART ONE

So I’m not a professional at all, don’t misunderstand, I just casually study horoscopes for fun, but I’m not even very deep into them. Most of my speculations are based off of personal relationships with others and, uh, Google. 

I mentioned in a previous text post how VIXX are so accurate to their signs, and since some of you think a more detailed post would be fun here you go ;D EDIT: Splitting them up one by one (asides from these two because they are the same sign) to prevent spamming your dash with walls of text and gifs! 

Cha Hakyeon/1990/6/30/Cancer & Han Sanghyuk/1995/7/5/Cancer

So Mama Cha and Satan ManHyuk are both Cancer. Now I have a good share of Cancer friends, and usually they come with stability, sensibility, moodiness and meticulousness (or so Google tells me, but this is pretty damn true). Let’s start with the Cha. He’s definitely a family-oriented man, and he wants a stable relationship with all of his loved ones. But he’s also quite sensitive on this topic because if the love he gives isn’t returned then he’ll start doubting their relationship and either lash out or become rather desperate, often clinging to others and/or messaging constantly. But he is incredibly loyal and generous, and he loves taking care of others. Loves, like have you not seen him fussing over people like a mother hen, his nickname is Mama Cha for a reason okay.

It's a follow spam!

My dash has been pretty dry lately, so I decided that I should follow more people!

If you blog about:

Clexa
Supercat
Korrasami
Hollstein
Shoot
Swan Queen
Camren
Bechloe
Faberry
Brittana
Emison
Cartinelli
other femslash ships

or the shows they came from

reblog this post, I’ll check out your blog, and probably follow you!

Note that I’ll be following you and liking your stuff under my primary blog, @hannsora, which is more like a humor, “meme-y” blog, as opposed to this more “shippy” blog!

WARNING TO MY FOLLOWERS

… and followings…

I’m truly considering about changing my tumblr name account so I’ll made some posts to warn you again but don’t be surprised and try to… not unfollow? :P

First thing I’ll be keeping my own Ilyana’s avatar to not loose you. I’ll spam your dash with this for a week and I’m pretty sorry about it but you compt to me.

Please like the post to tell me you saw it ^^ I’m really scared to loose awsome people in doing so… :/

Ok so im probably really spamming your dashes tonight. But can i talk about my crush? This is my blog, of course I can. So there’s this girl that goes to my school, and holy fucking hell she’s so perfect. She’s never not pretty, even when she’s not wearing any makeup. Sometimes she says hi to me unexpectedly, and it takes me by surprise because im never ready. To top it all off, you would think she’s a total bitch, but she has the kindest heart which makes her beautiful on the inside and on the outside which isn’t helping me much. And now that we don’t take classes together she doesn’t know i exist and i want to be her friend so bad.

anonymous asked:

You don't care when people spam your dash with self reblogs lol okay

to be honest i follow 4800 people so it’d be pretty hard to actually spam my dash unless you reblog a post like 10 times in 5 seconds but no, I don’t care. if it actually gets to the point where someone is on my dash so much and i can’t see anything but them, i just unfollow them. but just seeing a post that someone reblogged from themselves doesn’t bother me at all. idk why people act like it’s such a horrible thing like if i posted something a month ago that i think is cool and I really want her to see it, i’m gonna reblog it again. live and let live yo stop being so judgmental
