"I’m the type who’d be happy not going anywhere as long as I was sure I knew exactly what was happening at the places I wasn’t going to. I’m the type who’d like to sit home and watch every party that I’m invited to on a monitor in my bedroom."
The mass post editor, now called the mega editor, can be found here.
I always think it’s funny when I follow the blogs of people I know in real life. I get to see who they really are in person and who they want to be on their blog.
Tumblr Pet Peeve #1
When people link all of their posts back to their own blog without giving the source they got it from any credit.
I just came across a blog (I’m not naming any names here) that I instantly liked whose page was topped with something along the lines of, “I really love photography”. I noticed that every single image linked back to the main page of the blog, however, and fell out of love with it just as quickly. Not giving someone the proper credit for something they’ve created or captured, whether it’s a photograph, illustration, piece of writing, etc., is like stealing. It’s lame to remove credit and make it difficult for people to find the original source so that you can get more notes, anyway. If you really love anything that you post you’d give the source credit.
A couple months ago I realized my liked posts had gotten to such a ridiculously high number that it was near impossible to view them all, so whenever my dash is dead I go through them and unlike the ones I’m not as fond of anymore. I’m finally down to 2,193 posts, but it’s still a pain in the ass once I get past maybe 1,000 posts.
Tumblr should really consider giving users the option to go through their liked posts in pages or like they do with archives and the master post editor.
I took the anon’s advice to turn of endless scrolling (in preferences), which has made this process a fuck ton easier, and am now down to 1,884 liked posts! Wahooo! It’s really fun going through them, too. It’s like digging through the past.
JSC Tumblr Master Post!
Here’s a compilation of all the tumblrs run by my friends and fellow JSC-ers! They’re all awesome people and badass blogs so I suggest you check them out! I put them in alphabetical order by URL, if you were wondering. If I left anyone out or you’d like someone to be added to the list just let me know:
…THE FUCK, DASHBOARD?!
Yippee- I’ve been on tumblr for a little over a year now!
At first I was just like, “…what is this?”
Then I realized this was no error; they were changing the dash.
I got upset.
But now I’m just frustrated.
And sort of pissed off.
WHY, TUMBLR? WHY?!
I just want to say thanks to all of my friends and followers for enjoying what I post and being a pretty cool group of cats. I also want to thank many of you for sticking with me through all of my complaining, whining, ranting, raving, digression, depression, confessions, confusions, opinions, perspectives, and other personal ramblings. Some of you have even offered me your advice or opinions before and it means a lot to me that you’d take the time out of your day to try and help. Even if it’s just been little things like comments or conversations here and there, it’s the little things that matter to me. You guys are the best!
Recently I’ve been doing some brainstorming…
…and it has resulted in what (I believe) could be a neat little photography project!
I’d really like to get some of my friends together and purposely take our own (stereo)typical tumblr pictures. You know; the arms-sticking-out-of-a-shrubbery-with-nothing-else-exposed type, the back-of-a-girl’s-head-in-a-kitschy-setting ones, and the this-is-my-gourmet-breakfast-food-and-tea shots. The polaroids-of-seemingly-random-yet-ornate-objects, the care-free-white-girl-walking-through-a-field photos, and the cat-or-other-like-animal-doing-something-utterly-adorable snaps. I think this would be an especially fun project to try and do all in one weekend. It would be a sort of like a photo-scavenger hunt, running around, trying to find certain items and locations to make the photos the most generic they can be.
Just an idea in the works, but I thought I’d share it.
