Apparently Tumblr’s unfollowing people? Hasn’t happened with me yet BUT if you see I’ve unfollowed you please know it’s not me doing it. If this happens let me know and I’ll refollow you.
ahaha before tumblr
a little bit of gay for everyone!
I’m the real, now.
<sup> makes words go like thiiiiis.
<sub> makes them do thiiiiis.
<small> makes words go little. The more <small> you have the smaller the word.
Same thing applies with <big>.
<u> makes underlines.

Of course these are just basic things. You can also look at the HTML button for the codes if youre not up for searching through Google for them.
The button is here:
you betray the secrets of the trade
for those who never learned
<code> makes your text monospaced, <pre> puts your text in a grey box
This tool provides you with characters that match what you draw.
This tool lets you draw in monospace ASCII which you can then put in <code> on Tumblr.
This tool makes big-ass letters with text. Everything but the AOL fonts require monospace (<code>).
there’s a thin line between ‘things i should post on my blog’ and ‘things i should tell my therapist’
a couple of tumblr functions if you didn’t know about them:
- you can make tags on an individual blog display from the earliest to latest post by adding /chrono to the end, for example: http://gameofgifs.tumblr.com/tagged/season_202/chrono
- you can search through a tumblog by date using “http://username.tumblr.com/day/YEAR/MONTH/DAY”, for example: http://gameofgifs.tumblr.com/day/2012/09/16
- you can view just the photo posts on your dashboard in mosaic form by going to http://www.tumblr.com/photos
- you can save ask messages to your queue or drafts by hovering your mouse over the publish button and holding down “alt”, which will bring up alternative options
- by using the url “http://www.tumblr.com/show/type of post” you can filter your dash, for example “http://www.tumblr.com/show/photos” will show only photos
- you can retrieve previously used themes via the theme recovery page: http://www.tumblr.com/themes/recover
- when reblogging a long text post (like this one!), click on the “as” at the top of the post to reblog as a text post, link or quote
i think the issue with tumblr is that it gives people a platform where they’re validated and made important by the amount of followers they have and so in turn they feel like that validates all their feelings and opinions on things.
so that’s where we get this group of people who think that just because they’re offended and don’t like something, that they have the authority to tell you to do or not to do or say or not to say something. they feel like you should listen to them, because they’re important, and their feelings are important - so you should do everything you can to appease a person you don’t even know, have never met and will never meet in your life.
it’s perfectly fine to put your feelings and opinions out there but don’t assume that just because you have an opinion, other people have to care about it, and just because you have feelings, everyone has to avoid hurting them. i spend enough time trying to make myself happy, i do not and have no obligation to make you happy.
#this generation of people who feel like they’re at the center of their own universe #and therefore that makes them the most important thing in their world #i really can’t stand it #no one owes you anything - and certainly they don’t owe you not saying or doing something on a social networking site #it’s different if it’s something like all jews need to die hitler got it right #but if it’s shit like a ship on a show or all the dumb little things to pick at in the realm of feminism #sit the fuck down #you are no more important than me or anyone else
i don’t know how to like something without becoming obsessed anymore
When someone draws something for fandom, and it comes across my dash, the fact that SOMEONE DREW THIS never leaves my mind.
Not once. Not even for one second. My very first thoughts upon seeing fanart are never about the quality, or the content, or how hot the porn is (or isn’t), or whether I ship that, or if I need it on my blog, or whether or not it’s a photo and omg I should just kill myself I’ll never be this good.
My first thoughts are never about myself, quite frankly.
Because someone drew this. And that’s cool! They liked it so much that they wanted to draw it—despite whatever hangups they have about their skills. They liked it, and they drew it.
And then they SHARED IT. WITH YOU.
This is someone who can see every casual, dismissive, awesome, thoughtless, cruel comment you make. Someone who is going to adjust their way of drawing, their way of thinking, their way of sharing things with other people, their entire attitude—based on how people react. Drawing is scary. Sharing what you’ve drawn is scarier.
I’m not saying you have to make room. Or be nice. I’m not saying you have to do anything. But if you’d stop and think about what the fuck you’re doing or saying for an entire second, then maybe it wouldn’t be so shitty and terrifying for artists to share their talent with you in the first place.
