i was going to log off for tonight and go study for the exam i have tomorrow BUT I GUESS THAT’S NOT HAPPENING
so to get to the point: reblog the content you like
(or perish). i think it started around 2016 where we saw a huge shift in the likes:reblogs ratio. more people started liking than reblogging and it kinda just got worse over the years.
but let me tell you something.
this site. this lovely hell of a site IS NOT FUCKING INSTAGRAM. while people seek validation through likes over there, here we seek it through reblogs!!! it makes no sense for me to post a gifset and expect just likes. DO YOU SEE LIKES ON YOUR DASH??? no YOU DONT. but do you see reblogs? yes YOU FUCKING DO. this is a blogging social network website. by reblogging the content that you like, you are showing your followers content that they could potentially be interested in. im assuming the people you follow are people who like the same things as you do SO WHY NOT REBLOG THE STUFF THEY MAKE SO THAT THE PEOPLE WHO FOLLOW YOU, WHO ALSO SHARE THE SAME INTERESTS AS YOU REBLOG THAT EDIT???
DO YOU THINK CONTENT CREATORS ARE GONNA SIT ON THEIR CHAIRS FOR HOURS, OPEN UP PHOTOSHOP, HAVE THE PROGRAM CRASH 4 TIMES, RESIZE 8 GIFS, COLOR THEM, MAKE SURE ITS UNDER 3MB SO THAT WE GET 2 LIKES???????? YALL FUCKING DUMB OR SOMETHING??
THE CONTENT THAT YOU LIKE SO MUCH IS FREE. THE FICS ABOUT YOUR OTP ARE FREE AND REBLOGGABLE. THE COLORFUL GIFSET OF YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE/SHOW ARE FREE TO REBLOG. THE PALE EDITS OF YOUR FAVORITE BOOK ARE FREE AND REBLOGGABLE. content creators dont expect to be fucking paid when they post their stuff on this shitsite. its all free shit yall. and you liking a gifset or a gfx is not the way to demonstrate that you appreciate content creators for taking the time out of their life to make stuff for you.
it is not selfish of us to ask you to reblog.
also, theres something going around where people are trying to mimic other people’s blogs. STOP THAT. POST WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT. you want to reblog that meme on your MARVEL BLOG??? then go fucking ahead. you want to reblog a colored post on your pale blog??? then do it!!! stop tryna be something your not. stop tryna be like others blogs bc its boring. its dull. its predictable. be yourself. and reblog the content that makes you happy. stop tryna please all your followers. if youre a multifandom blog, well, your follower knew what they were getting into when they followed you. stop sticking to the same aesthetic everyone is tryna be BC GUESS WHAT….
YA BEING BASIC
and another thing…. please consider reblogging once again. please consider reblogging the beautiful edits people make for their followers. please consider adding a nice comment on the tags (NOT UNDERNEATH THE POST ITSELF). please consider popping in on someone’s ask and send them a nice message about their awesome edits. it encourages people to make the edits that you love.
p.s. dont EVER fucking complain again that you dont see enough of *insert fandom here* bc if you’re not reblogging, then you have no opinion on that matter.
