Every once in a while I end up visiting by accident some interesting tumblr sites and I just decided to give it a go. Do you have some good ones to recommend? So far I have these

Tumblr is proposing to charge:
-$100K for “partnered content” aka 15 posts a day by one of the NYFW bloggers
-$150K for a sponsored takeover of tumblr.com/nyfw
-$350K for sponsored takeover of tumblr.com/tagged/fashion

All of these sums are per week. We’ll just let that sink in.

Lost in all of this, of course, are the 20 bloggers that Tumblr is sending to NYFW. We’ve confirmed that Tumblr has no intention of paying said bloggers, whose original content the company is using to leverage unheard of sums from big-name brands, garnering huge profits and at zero cost. It’s certainly at least a little exploitative, considering that many of these bloggers are quite young (some are still in college) with little knowledge of the industry and of their own earning power.

how do you make it so your posts on tumblr say "posted 2 days ago by _____" instead of just "posted 2 days ago" ??

"One of our service providers just suffered a major network outage, reducing our web capacity significantly for the past two hours.

We’re frustrated with the amount of time it took to resolve this issue, but are more disappointed that this issue had such a dramatic impact on our service. We’re already working to remove this component as a single point of failure.

Our deepest apologies for letting you down tonight."

Ah okay, guess I could have just googled a little longer, I just noticed that several of the music tumblrs I follow had been down for much of the night.

this guy seems like an asshole and/or most of this shit is fake

yologram (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 18 April 2012 15:23 (seven years ago) link

I can assure you that I've heard and/or seen even worse over the years.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 18 April 2012 15:46 (seven years ago) link

I used to handle review copies for a publisher and we did get some scammers. I think the worst I ever saw was a fake magazine website with articles lifted directly from Slate. Still this doesn't sound unscripted to me:

W: All of them.

M: Ok, Sarah Palin, can you name a few of them for me?

Also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackballing

rob, Wednesday, 18 April 2012 16:02 (seven years ago) link

Having asked the publicist, I got this back -- not scripted, but sometimes directed:

I keep a pad next to me with interesting topics or comebacks that I've come up with in case the conversation turns that way....so while I'm talking on the phone, if I can steer the convo to get to use that line, I will. And I transcribe all my conversations as they happen. If you saw my notebook, it's wild. Only 10% of the calls I get make it into the blog. A lot of them are boring or lame, but some are comedic gold. The only editing I do is artist names or anything that pinpoints who it is, but I never change any verbiage or add anything for comedic effect. It's all 100% verbatim.

Obsessive, hey, but we all have our habits.

tumblr is appealing to me but one thing bothers me about it: i never see a list of tags on the right like on wordpress/blogger, so to see all of a person's posts about x thing you just have to look at the archive and find them one by one. is there a way to make this happen on tumblr, is it in-built into any of the styles?

1 P.3. Eternal (roxymuzak), Monday, 4 November 2013 15:07 (six years ago) link

mine allows that, i think? i've used it to find things.

sweat pea (La Lechera), Monday, 4 November 2013 15:15 (six years ago) link

i feel like the only taging ive seen on tumblr is hashtagging which when clicked obv links you to everything anyone in the world has tagged w/ that. seems like its set up to make categories/organization of posts impossible in an individual blog? im tumblr dumb tho

1 P.3. Eternal (roxymuzak), Monday, 4 November 2013 15:33 (six years ago) link

*tagging

1 P.3. Eternal (roxymuzak), Monday, 4 November 2013 15:33 (six years ago) link

i use it to categorize my posts so i can find them later and i think it works ok?

sweat pea (La Lechera), Monday, 4 November 2013 15:38 (six years ago) link

im a fool. haw

1 P.3. Eternal (roxymuzak), Monday, 4 November 2013 15:39 (six years ago) link

like this should be all posts that i have tagged "seniors"
http://yearbookeditor.tumblr.com/search/seniors

sweat pea (La Lechera), Monday, 4 November 2013 15:40 (six years ago) link

aaaaaahhh ok, see i thought that when i clicked a tag at the bottom of a post that it would take me to a big roll of every post on tumblr with that tag.

1 P.3. Eternal (roxymuzak), Monday, 4 November 2013 15:44 (six years ago) link

right
i don't think there are that many (any) people out there searching my tubmlr/searching for seniors-- it's just for me, so i can find things.

sweat pea (La Lechera), Monday, 4 November 2013 15:46 (six years ago) link

the tumblr shoplifting community is my favourite discovery of 2014, i'm in a rabbithole of these girls' blogs. one of them is called "do u even lift bro?" and at one point they suggest a skirmish with gymbros over the use of the #lifting hashtag

playing to the crowd aren't i, but I don't think anyone should glamorize theft.

online hardman, Wednesday, 30 April 2014 15:59 (five years ago) link

yeah i didn't think you was really advocating hand-chopping

you poll a lot, but you're not saying anything (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 30 April 2014 16:00 (five years ago) link

i don't see what's glamorous about it, they have a community, sounds very traditional

j., Wednesday, 30 April 2014 16:05 (five years ago) link

yeah that's the entire delightful appeal, they're exactly like every other tumblr community in terms of the language they use, how they interact with and support each other

i mean when i read the headline through which i found out about them my first reaction was "pass the smelling salts" but within like a minute of reading through their blogs i was 100% won over and endeared to them

lex pretend, Wednesday, 30 April 2014 16:30 (five years ago) link

I'll leave this thread now because the concept of tumblr communities makes me feel nauseous/embarrassed

online hardman, Wednesday, 30 April 2014 16:31 (five years ago) link

also didn't u see their disclaimers, "this is all roleplay"

lex pretend, Wednesday, 30 April 2014 16:33 (five years ago) link

xp u old

lex pretend, Wednesday, 30 April 2014 16:34 (five years ago) link

and theft. that's the blues, baby.

how's life, Wednesday, 30 April 2014 20:23 (five years ago) link

Uh it's love and theft.,

how's life, Wednesday, 30 April 2014 20:24 (five years ago) link

why would tumblr communities make anyone embarrassed, any more than FB groups or twitter lists? Not vouching for the morality of theft, but can say that when I stumbled onto the ring of graffiti/street art tumblr blogs, it was a pretty easy decision to follow like-minded people, and not have to ever worry about cluttering my feed with unwanted stuff.

except all the hentai porn that teenage graffiti bloggers seem to love

Tumblr's great, seems to be ideal for image enthusiasts, sound clips too. Just needs to grow up a bit, too many people contribute nothing but commercial flash.

tumblr has been dead for a while but banning adult content/nudity at this point is kind of lol, was that the only thing keeping them afloat? i haven't used it in forever but i do remember a kind of golden age for arty erotic tumblrs that lasted a brief a couple years when tumblr was good overall
