As a part of Spread the Love Day, I want to highlight those that I stalk the most. These people bring me LIFE on this website. Seriously. Let me tell you a little about each of them.
@saucynewf - I am pretty sure that Pam is determined to remain #1 on my list. She supplies me with as much Dean Porn as a girl could hope. I never know what I’m going to get, and it makes following her that much MORE exciting. If you would like to get your Dean fix on, head on over to Pam’s blog and FOLLOW HER.
@blacktithe7 - I LOVE Erin. She knows how to write Jensen and SUCK ME IN. I recently re-read her Rockstar! Jensen AU Silk and Rough Velvet.If you, like me, have a thing for Jensen singing, you need to give this series a try. It is SUCH a roller coaster that you won’t regret. Then you need to read her NEWEST Jensen series Forward. It has been absolutely delightful. I’m enjoying every damn second of it. Follow Erin RIGHT NOW.
@deansdirtylittlesecretsblog - Mimi is absolute fanfic ROYALTY. Just saying. I love pretty much every bloody thing she writes. Let me just lay it down for you. An Unassuming Life Series is a Mechanic! Dean x Reader AU in which you will absolutely lose yourself. Then she writes THE BEST Dean x Donna pairing EVER. It’s my drug, and she is my supplier. I swear. I CAN NOT get enough. Then there is The Arrangement. A Mechanic! Dean x Reader series in which you will LOSE YOUR SHIT. It is so damn good. So, why are you still looking at me, go follow her and readall the things.
@ravengirl94 - Let’s talk about Emily, shall we? I discovered her blog just a week ago and all I can think is, “Where the HELL has this been all my life?!” Holy Toledo, Batman. This girl CAN WRITE. The first thing I read was her Billionaire! Dean x Reader AU The Arrangement. I’m so in love with it I can hardly function. It brings me life and makes me smile and feel all kinds of things. THIS is like a book. It’s so well written and sucks you in. And it’s way different than almost anything out there. Then the way she writes Jensen is utterly AMAZING. Check out her I Want Crazy Series. It will not disappoint. Then while you’re at it, just FOLLOW HER ALREADY.
@justjensenanddean - My supplier for EVERYTHING Jensen and Dean. Whether it’s Jensen singing or being an AMAZING father or Dean in all is beautiful glory, this blog makes sure I never go without these two men. Bless you, my friend. Thank you for always creating and reblogging THE BEST stuff. Ugh, go follow this blog, you fools!
@torn-and-frayed - You made the list again, Steph! :p I can not say enough about this woman. She has a masterfully executed Series Rewrite in which she has inserted the reader into now up to FIVE SEASONS of Supernatural. I don’t know how in the hell she does it, dudes. Then there is Daddy’s Little Lovebug. I LOVE It so hard. And we can’t forget her Send the Pain Below Series. It’s a Jensen x Reader, and it hurts so good. She is basically the queen of angst and making your heart HURT. Go follow her. She is bloody brilliant.
@impala-dreamer - Let me count the ways that Bekah drives me wild. Let’s start with ALL THE SMUT. She sure knows how to drive my Dean fantasies WILD. Enchanted Encounter is a completely wonderful example of that. The reader gets cursed and all kinds of wonderfullness ensues. Goodmorning, Princess and Goodnight, Princess are both PERFECT examples of how I want to wake up and go to sleep EVERY DAMN DAY. Then there was the time that Bekah made me HATE HER with The End of Time. I’m telling you, get some tissues. I was so damn pissed at the end of this one, I cried for a while, then lashed out. Everything Bekah does is GOLD. She also writes Sam, blah blah, and it’s not so bad either. *rolls eyes* Go follow her talented ass. NOW!
@jacklesonmymind - Constantly reblogging ANYTHING and EVERYTHING Jensen and Dean. Bless her for making sure I don’t go anytime without seeing his beautiful face on my dash. I don’t know what I’d do without some of these wonderful trashy rebloggers. They bring me LIFE. You are AMAZING.
@misswhizzy - Liz, Liz, Liz… You make sure that if I missed it the first time around from someone, that I’m going to see it once you reblog or post it. I feel like there are so many wonderful gifsets that I would have missed out on if it weren’t for you and your wonderful eye for beauty. You have a wonderfully run blog and it fills my dash with joy. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
There are SO MANY MORE great blogs out there, but today these are the wonderful souls I am featuring. What are you doing still reading this!? Go Follow their wonderful asses!
So as of last week I'm off work because of my health (I now can't stand for long periods of time without passing out) do you know of any ways I can be making a little income to pay some bills while I'm getting treated?
How To Make Money From Home (For Beginners)
I went over this a little in this post, but I can make a list of recommendations since I do a fair amount of work from home. Keep in mind that I found a few things that worked well for me off the bat and had a full-time job on top of them, so I cannot personally attest to the success of all of these. But I’m going to list to a bunch of resources to help you figure out what works for you rather than specific jobs.
What Kind of Jobs Are There?
In terms of working from home or earning passive income, I would recommend:
phone, email, chat, or social media support
search engine and website evaluation
freelance writing, design, photography, etc.
social media management
Bolded items are the jobs I’ve personally had.
I really like Fiverr for design work and writing Kindle ebooks (I’m hoping that’ll be my primary income by the end of the summer). And even though it’s tedious work, I think transcription is very reliable once you make good connections. Amazon’s Mechanical Turk and similar services like odesk are also good for tedious unskilled work that can only be done by human beings, like transcription, social media management, or proofreading.
Blogs and Resources
The links I included in my previous post provide a few employers or job posting aggregators for each of these jobs. This one in particular has picked out some of the most reliable work, and this post from the same blog has a good rundown of flexible schedule WFH employers/contractors.
I mentioned in that post about online work that if you’re in college, it would be wise to keep an eye on stay-at-home mom blogs. As a student, you’re working with roughly the same amount of work experience, education, and available time as a mommy blogger.
I’ll probably talk about mommy bloggers a lot, but that’s because they know their shit when it comes to making passive income online. The blog I linked to above also has a post about how teens can make money online, which would definitely be a great post to check out if you don’t really have a lot of experience or employable skills.
These subs have a lot of great information about getting started working from home or being a telecommuting entrepreneur.
If you’re just looking for easy passive income to get a couple hundred a month, this post on /r/beermoney is a good rundown of the most popular online gift card and minimal income providers. Each of the subs has some kind of FAQ/Getting Started post pinned so definitely start there to see what your options are.
If you’re looking to get into writing erotica for Kindle, your first stop should be /r/eroticauthors/ as I noted in my blog post about getting started in the genre. (Tumblr-rebloggable post here.)
Do you read/write fanfic? This is a pretty good route to take. It takes a little SEO knowledge and market research, but once you hit the right market you can make five figures a month. I’m serious.
If you’ve followed me long enough or have talked to me before you know I’m nowhere near as active as I used to be on this site or the communities here (if I ever was lmao). This is mainly an update post on how to contact me more than anything.
If you have questions/comments/feels you want to scream at me try tumblr IM or my twitter!!
EDIT: My twitter is the first 🌱 emoji in my sidebar, I just prefer not linking it on a rebloggable post lol. It should be clickable on both desktop and mobile versions.
Some unnecessary personal updates/explanations below the cut for those who’re curious.
As ridiculous as that title is… I am making a list of all the lists I have made for spells. *insert “yo dawg I heard you like lists” meme…*
SO, these are links to the lists of spells I have made for these topics; the first will bring you directly to my blog page, the second “rebloggable” link takes you to the posts that you can reblog and have access to on your own blogs.
I’ve come back to the Tumblr writing community because I’m confident that this diverse group of people are both talented and genuinely care for each other. It’s because of this that I’m asking you for your advice.
I’m going to begin working on a novel. I’m not asking you to buy it, it may not ever go anywhere but my laptop screen but I’m documenting semi-fictionally a piece of my life. What I’m wondering is, what advice do you have for embarking on a process like this? Are there things you do to prepare? Do you map it out in very general terms first or just jump in and write page after page? Give me the good, the bad, the ugly. Feel free to share your experiences. I appreciate any help and any reblogs to signal boost. <3 I’ll be tagging some of the reblogger groups to make sure this hits their radars as well because I’m shameless. ;)
Hi!! I just wanted to make sure that you were okay with people rebloggging your fics?? They're just so cute, but I wanted to make sure you were comfortable with it first!!
Aw, that’s sweet! Yes, I am totally fine with anyone reblogging my fic. Generally, if I don’t want something reblogged, I won’t post it on here because there’s no guarantee that something put on tumblr won’t be reblogged by SOMEONE, you know? If I need to get something private out, I generally save it for a group chat or Slack.
(When I was in grade school a zillion years ago, my mom used to say “don’t write anything in a note [you’re passing to a friend in class] that you wouldn’t be okay seeing on the six o’clock news,” and that tends to be the attitude that I take w/r/t the internet, especially now that IRL identities are linked more obviously to internet handles.)
ANYWAY, it was sweet of you to ask and I’m glad you like them 💜💜💜
Requested: “Well I’d like a Niall one please x
Could it maybe be your first time and your really shy?
Idm tho” - @nutellaxwifix
Summary: She’s worried–worried of making a mistake, of not impressing him, of showing him all of her. But she won’t have to be worried much longer, because everything she does manages to blow Niall away–no pun intended.
The bag had felt heavy in my hands, although it was possibly the lightest thing I’ve ever held in my life. It was just because I was so unused to it–lingerie was so far out of my norm that even I didn’t expect it of myself.
The whole situation with it was a mess. I had gone to Victoria’s Secret having never bought any lingerie in my life. Of course I had lacy panties and bras, but they were never intended to be seen by other people. That made this different. I bought the white ensemble just for Niall, so he could see it and rip it right off me. I wanted to make my first time special, and that was the only way I knew how.
He hadn’t expected it at all. He had been sitting on the bed, watching James Corden when I approached him. “Niall?” I asked tentatively, my voice softer than the rambunctious laughter falling from both the television and my boyfriend himself. I wasn’t surprised, therefore, that he didn’t here me. “Ni?” I tried again, walking deeper into the room. This time, his head shot up, and he held out the remote to turn off the TV.
“Hey,” he grinned. “C’mere.” He motioned towards himself and I complied, crawling onto the bed beside him. “What’s up, darling?” He requested, wrapping an arm around me.
I grinned, lifting my head to press my lips against his softly. His hand rested against my jaw, holding our bodies together. After a few moments, I pulled back, tucking a strand of hair behind my ear. “Ni,” I started, biting my lip. “I think I’m ready.”
Super duper large tag list here. My first actual post on tumblr, simblr at that. I don’t even know how this thing works but I figured out how to tag so *whoop*!
I have to give a million thanks yous to everyone listed below and all the people I forgot to mention (I just haven’t found your simblr yet).
Thank you thank you thank you so much for the amazing cc/mods, recolors, or reblogs that brought me to amazing cc. If you are a creator/retextures-ist/ or cc reblogger, many thanks for making my game beautiful! Please keep it up and keep pumping out your gorgeous cc you wonderful people.
EXO reaction to their girlfriend performing at an award show.
Requested by Anonymous: Can you do an Exo reaction where their reader girl friend is from England and performs at an award show *i have asked all around for this one please*
A/N: I don’t really like adding anything specific to my reactions about ‘You’ just so more people can enjoy it, so I hope it’s alright that I leave out the part about her ethnicity. x
Masterlisthere. Rebloggable mobile masterlist here.
You’re slightly nervous to be performing in front of such a talented audience at first. Then you make eye contact with your boyfriend, who sends you kisses and hearts throughout your entire performance, being an embarrassing boyfriend, but it helps you get through the performance without a hitch.
The very second that you choose to have a child of color, each and every one of your views must change. The facts that you have learned as a white woman are not invalid, and they are not irrelevant but you must acknowledge the vast and complex differences between your life and your child’s.
So white mothers, I must plead; please do not speak for your children. You may speak up, I encourage you to speak up for your children, but not over. Your opinions and view points are entirely different than that of someone who has faced a completely different prejudice. Do not take words from their mouths, and do not take the air from their lungs.
Each and every day your child will pick up micro-aggressions that have been ingrained into you as normal; listen to them when they point them out. They notice the way that other white people’s eyes linger on their skin, the slant of their eyes, the width of their nose. They know the way that this country hates them.
You want to raise a child who is intelligent, and fair. That’s good, but the first step is to inform them of ways to make sure this world is fair to them. Again, I plead. Listen to your children. For gods sake, hold them close and listen to every word that comes out of their mouth.
You may cry, you may stomp, and you may be afraid. But never let that get more important to you than your own child’s worry.
From a Woman of Color who used to be a Child of Color who’s opinions were silenced by her white mother.
Okay I can’t find my last list post. That one got a little crazy anyway, and people got a follow after they reblogged it, so I’ll make a new one! First 100 rebloggers will be on a list, promise. I’ll try to get as many of the ones past that as I can!
(You don’t have to follow me to be put on the list, but I will follow you back)
i want to thank everyone for helping me get back on fot after getting hacked. i got 2300 followers in 24 hours. when i first got hacked i just simply wrote about it on my mod blog and was planning to move on, make the blog over again with maybe 100 followers but then suddenly catfood mcfly took action and informed people about what happened. and then suddenly everyone i have gotten to know on tumblr over the past year started imforming other and it was just so great knowing that so many people actualy cared enough to reblogg and protect my art. in the picture above i drew some of the people reblogging but there was way more people i want to thank but i cant put all of them in one picture. but THANK YOU so so much for everything you have done for me today! i have done nothing but thinking about you guys for the past 24 hours and i just cant thank you enough.
A few monts ago I decided to make a page about reposts because this is something that bothers me a lot and I’m always complaining here (because people don’t have morals and always need to get followers using me). Now I’ve been asked to make it rebloggable. Be aware that english is not my first language, so, sorry for my mistakes.
What is a repost?
When you go to Google or We Heart It or even Tumblr and see an edit that you like, you usually will save it on your computer, right? A repost is when you save it on your computer and post it on your blog to get notes with it (and followers). A few people do it because they want to share the image bla bla bla. But there are lots of people here who do it just to get followers and notes. They don’t care if it yours or not. They don’t care if you spent a lot of time making that gif that you are so proud of. They just repost it, take the credits for it and don’t care if it makes you sad or not.
I like to reblog posts, does it count as a repost?
Not at all. This is why we are on this website in the first place. When you reblog, you share that post that you loved and the credits go to the poster! Reblogging is totally fine (unless this is a repost, them it’s a bit more difficult).
Why do you care so much about reposts?
Because I love editing and making gifs. I don’t do it only because I want followers. I do it because it’s my passion. I feel better when I edit a pic. I spend hours (HOURS) making gifs and I don’t mind at all. Can you imagine how bad it is seeing a repost of my work? That edit that made me so happy because I made it the way I wanted? They take the credits for what I do. That’s why.
What do I do if I see a repost?
You have two options:
1) Ask the reposter to take the post down;
2) Ask Tumblr to take the post down.
You need to have the link of the original post AND of the repost, specially if you ask the tumblr to delete the later. To ask to Tumblr you need to go on Help, write “reposts”, then you click on Contact Support and write an e-mail with the link to the original post AND to the repost. The subject of the e-mail needs to be “reposts”.
If it’s not yours, you can tell to the original poster, they’ll know what to do or what they want to do.
Do the reposters always take the post down?
No. Some of them use the argument “it’s on the internet, if you don’t want it to be reposted don’t post it on your blog”. Which is ridiculous because this is my blog, this is where I share what I do and since I made the edit/gif, I want it to stay on my blog, thank you very much.
But, of course, you might find people with good heart..
I repost, but only when the edits don’t have a name/watermark. do you think it’s reposting?
Yes, it is. Some edit/gif makers don’t like to put watermark because they think it’s ugly (I do) or weird etc. But it’s still theirs. It’s still a repost.
What do I need to do to not be a reposter?
This is easy. You know that edit that you saved? That amazing gif that makes you smile all the time? Don’t post it on your blog. It doesn’t matter if it’s beautiful, if you want to share etc. Don’t post and don’t share. Stay with it on your computer, only on your computer. Did you make it? No? So don’t post it.
Reposting is now against tumblr’s terms and policies. You see, now it’s not only our thing. It’s not about edit/gif makers complaning. It’s about tumblr now (and I’m happy, I have a new argument against reposters yay!)
There is a lot of confusion and false information out there about tagging posts correctly. With “correctly” meaning: So that your post can actually be found.
After I launched this post on photosworthseeing (please check also this post, for it contains a lot of new information), a lot of things happened: Comments, reblogs with comments, messages, clarifications, and even more confusion.
So I talked with people who know people, who previously talked with other people. And this is the result (comments are welcome):
There are 2 ways to find original posts (not reblogs) on Tumblr:
Big thanks to Mykl from unwrapping for the very detailed and patient explanation! unwrapping is a blog every blogger on Tumblr should follow imho. Lots of most useful tips to make your Tumblr experience a better one. Also big thanks to adamreeve for pointing me towards this all and his explanations!
Only original posts can be found with the search and tagged pages. Prioritize your best five tags first, then make sure your total tags do not exceed 20.
So, which tags are the “important” ones?
you’re an original photographer and want your photos to be found by
rebloggers, the tags photographers on tumblr, original photographers, original photography, and artists on tumblr seem to work pretty well. From my experience photographers on tumblr and original photographers seem to be the most important ones.
Some rebloggers (like lensblr-network, imiging and telescopical) also track specialized tags. Most
of them have their specialized tags on their page. Please note: There is no need to use a
special tag for “PWS – Photos Worth Seeing” (except for the “no edit
friday” tag. If you want to participate in “no edit Friday” use “no edit friday” as one of the first 5 tags if you want to get sure but in all cases as one of the first 20). PWS only
tracks “photographers on tumblr” and “original photographers”
