thememaking

anonymous asked:

Hi.. I'm new to studyblr thing. How do I get more motivated and noticed? Do you have any advices?

hello! really sorry for such a late reply, was super busy with exams.. anyways lets get on to your question!  

  1. An appropriate theme. having a theme that’s minimalistic, clean, and appealing is the best way to enhance the illusion of productivity ++ it’s really popular on many studyblr blogs! some examples of popular thememakers are neonbike themes, micealis, and odeysseus themes or you can find others too.
  2. Make an Introduction Post. this allows people to get to know you! you can include what school system you’re under, how old you are, your hobbies etc. you can also tag studyblrs who have inspired you to make a studyblr!
  3. Original content is what i recommend to get others to ‘notice’ you, and also to motivate yourself! i find that posting my notes motivate me to make and post more of them! if you think your notes are not ‘acceptable’ or not ‘pretty enough’… nah man. what matters is that you got work done. a few things you can participate in/post are: 
    1. the notes you got done that day
    2. motivational graphics 
    3. masterposts on something academic related
    4. join the 100 days of productivity!
  4. Tag people in your original posts! many studyblrs have tags they follow! so they’ll reblog your posts and maybe even check out your blog! a few people you can tag are: 
    1. @elkstudies (#elkstudies)
    2. @genspen  (#heygen)
    3. @studypetals (#studypetals) 
    4. @obsidianstudy (#obsidianstudy) 
    5. (( you can even tag me #natlookhere hehe ))
  5. Talk to people!!! everyone loVES talking to other studyblrs trust me i’ve made so many new friends through this community!! the studyblr community is filled with loooovely people. so you can interact with others by
    1. sending asks!! if someone reblogs an ask game, you’ll definitely be noticed if you send em something
    2. message them! the tumblr private message is actually a blessing.. it’s so much easier to talk to people like this
    3. i met so many amazing people by just going up and talking to them… though it may seem daunting, i can confirm that even the studyblrs that post the most breathtaking content are just huge nerds when you talk to them (see: @love-adore-study-more who i’ve actually met irl what a blessing. see: @asazora who’s probably the hugest dork ever. see: @obsidianstudy what an actual cutie. see: @genspen probably the sweetest human being ever) 
  6. Networks and communities are also very helpful with getting to know people. a few communities include: 
    1. the Studyblr Network
    2. the Studyblr Index 
  7. As for motivation, a good way to start is to list down what motivates you. refer back to this list from time to time, or when you feel unmotivated. other ways include:
    1. Forming habits. Because while motivation fails you somedays, discipline makes you get it done. a few printables allow you to track your habits! (this one by @educatier is my fav!)
    2. Trying different note taking methods is also helpful in finding out what’s best for you! methods such as mind mapping, dot point notes, and the blank sheet method are a few examples!
    3. listen to pump up music while studying!! (pls listen to i can feel it by hey violet)
    4. there are many motivational graphics circulating the studyblr community. print some of them out and put them on the wall of your study space and look up at it whenever feeling unmotivated!!! 
    5. masterposts on motivation!! are super!! helpful too!! a few of these masterposts include:
      1. motivation by @asazora
      2. focus and motivation by @katsdesk
      3. motivation by @areistotle
      4. motivation masterpost by @elkstudies
  8. Other new studyblr masterposts include:
    1. Tips for Starting a New Studyblr by @theorganisedstudent
    2. How 2 Studyblr by @areistotle

i really hope this helps!! im really sorry for the messiness of this… >.< but feel free to drop by anytime if clarification is needed!! or even just to chat :) good luck with the whole studyblr thing, im sure you’ll be just fine~

love, nat
