Tumblr hole  
Heh, I spent the better part of my day looking at tumblr... and now I have a headache, lol. Ugh...

I want to start crossposting my shit on tumblr and making a post is pretty much the highlight of my T skill for now... but that's okay :D I've been getting comments here and there about putting this or that on tumblr and I figure it won't cost me a thing to do that :) But this will be just that - a place to crosspost my stuff like I'm already doing on AO3 ♥. I've looked at a few WC-related blogs and... no, just no to most of them. I've glued myself to a few Matty-related blogs which I have been checking anyway. Basically, I'm just gonna crosspost my stuff there, if someone stumbles across it and reblogs or likes - woohoo, if not - no big deal.

But lemme tell ya, my dashboard is a MESS, like even Rodney McKay wouldn't be able to achieve that level of mess and he did blow up a solar system once :P Springtime cleaning is definitely in order!

Hopefully today I can finish the manip I'm working on and it'll be the perfect test pic :) *sigh* I should be working on something completely different but the muse has taken a 180 turn in his creative interests which complicates things... a lot... but I'm not gonna be stressing over it and just embrace the bunnies flisters keep sending my way :D) I'll enter the full-blown panic mode when it's time to do so (lol) :D

Also, spring, beautiful weather, work done for today...

*happy sigh*  Direction: home... with a coffee detour :P

Hee! Matty in full belly laugh - LOVE IT :D

I recommend "New XKit" to help clean up the dash a bit. You can blacklist and whitelist tags so that you can see only what you want to see, in addition to a number of other awesome features.

Thanks *hugs* I shall do that :D I really need it, when I setup the account 2 years ago, I was clicking shit at random and now I'm paying for it, lol

Is there any way to have a normal conversation on that thing? Something comment-based like LJ?
angelita26: Elizabeth Thinkingangelita26 on April 14th, 2016 02:03 pm (UTC)
LOL - I know what you mean.

There's a couple of ways to try and have a conversation. You can reblog and add your own comment, which is not ideal for the dash - it'll cause super long posts and things to be repeated. There's also a Reply feature (if the person has it enabled, then you'll see a speech bubble at the bottom of a post on your dash. The Reply text then appears in the likes/reblogs of the post and the person can respond (which I think will then appear on their Tumblr as a new post. I haven't tried to the Reply feature, but we can test it out if you want. We both have it enabled.

Meh, so basically you just need to reblog the same thing 20 times to get to a point :P This is why I have resisted tumblr for so long :D Oh well... maybe we can test a few things this weekend :D

Having the XKit installed will make things a lot easier. People reblogging w/o comments or simply liking will fold up and not repeat endlessly. Also, there's an Xkit feature that enables originals, only.

Yes, it's not like LJ and conversations are difficult. But because it's such a visual medium, it can be fun, holding complete conversations via screencaps.

Check out http://askeobard.tumblr.com/ - makes me smile all day long.

I don't know how vibrant the WC community is on Tumblr - I still follow Archivistsrock, but that's it. And my WC friends who are on Tumblr - but not because of WC, but because they are my friends.

I stumbled upon a random post where someone was complaining about the lack of WC fic on Tumblr. It made my head hurt just thinking about some of the awesome epic fics posted in an endless scroll there with no real way to leave feedback, not even a kudos button. Makes me so glad for LJ, even with all its flaws.
elrhiarhodanelrhiarhodan on April 14th, 2016 06:12 pm (UTC)
YES! Absolutely.

Fic is definitely an afterthought on Tumblr. I doubt many people find my Flash stories via my obligatory link post.

But art is so appreciated, and I think Kanarek will develop a glorious following (if I have anything to say about that).
angelita26: Matt - Happyangelita26 on April 14th, 2016 06:39 pm (UTC)
Yes - art is the thing on Tumblr, and I know K will get an awesome following. You and I will make it happen! :)
kanarek13kanarek13 on April 15th, 2016 09:24 pm (UTC)
Awww, that would be torture /o\ When I did a search for WC tumblrs, the first thing I stumbled upon was the ff.net grade Peter bashing... figures

*wraps herself in the wonderful LJ family experience* :P
kanarek13kanarek13 on April 15th, 2016 09:22 pm (UTC)
Yes \o/ I installed the XKit and a few extensions and it's looking sooo much better :D Next step is to clean up the follow list and add LJ friends :D

I'm so thrilled if you post ALL your amazing stuff on White Collar on tumblr.
And by ALL I mean all because all your stuff is amazing and deserves to be showed to the world.
I mean it.
I have a tumblr blog and I have followers that come there for White Collar.
They dont know your art and they will gush endlessly when I reblog your stuff at first.
Then, they will follow you.
I'm already following you on tumblr ( not a lot of activity so far, lol).
My blog is aprilinparis92 on tumblr.
Sooo happy to see your stuff..
I've got most of your art downloaded on my drive but I would love to reblog it to spread your talent.

kanarek13kanarek13 on April 16th, 2016 12:37 pm (UTC)
LOL, yeah, the tumblr is/was dead as a door nail :P Well, I started with the Limbo piece, once I get more into the habit of posting there, I'll gradually repost all my stuff :)

But thank you for the squeee, hee :D {{{HUGS}}}

Hope your headache eases quickly *hugs*

Hmm, are you sure Rodney couldn't make more of a mess?! *wonders what Rodney's Tumblr would look like* *batman, cats... thermo-nuclear warheads*

Matty is full laugh is always a good way to make things better! :D
kanarek13kanarek13 on April 14th, 2016 02:56 pm (UTC)
LOL, well, I guess anything could happen when it comes to Rodney :D

I stumbled upon this puppy today and it made me smile :D

That brings back memories!! Oh Rodney, lol!! *shakes head* :D :D

I found you :) Not that I use Tumblr all that much, but I do like to find my friends there, at least! Tumblr is one of those things (kinda like Pintrest) that I only get on occasionally b/c I'll end up spending hours and hours on there and not really accomplish much of anything o.O And the lack of conversations and all just baffles me, honestly. I'm too accustomed to LJ -- it has its faults and flaws, but at least it lets me actually *talk* to people (well, *write*, but you you know what I mean!). I'm sure you'll get a massive following on there, though -- your art's too good to *not* get followers <3
kanarek13kanarek13 on April 15th, 2016 09:26 pm (UTC)
Yeah, we have the best thing going on here, I can't see myself changing that. I would need a very, VERY strong show vibe to make me participate on tumblr more and right now there is nothing. I mean I do like to watch all the gifs and pretties but in the end, I come back here :D
Sherylynsherylyn on April 15th, 2016 09:49 pm (UTC)
I absolutely, totally agree! I mean, it's not like I can art all that well in any medium, but I just can't imagine anything else taking over my brain like this does. And LJ is no where near perfect, ever, but it *does* let us talk to people, and for that, it has all the wins!! <3

I do not understand the Tumblr thing at all. Being an artist/photographer/writer, I know it's important I learn it, but it's like looking at a calculus problem to me.

So you're going to put artwork there, but we'll still get to see it here?

Thanks for the Matty Goodness. :)
kanarek13: snuggleskanarek13 on April 15th, 2016 01:02 pm (UTC)
LJ will most definitely remain my base of operations, WC fandom is rather non existent on tumblr and I care about interactions, talking to ppl and I have it all here :D At the same time there is currently no other show with vibes strong enough to suck me into its tumblr hole, heee :D I might look and appreciate stuff but in the end the real fun is here on LJ :D
