So, late the other night, in a fit of combined whimsy and frustration, I did a thing.

I do not plan on posting anything! I'm just using it to read people whom I cannot read at DW, or who post much more content on Tumblr than on DW. Plus, having a username means I can finally contact Tumblrites who don't have anonymous asks enabled.

Expect much panic, because this platform confuses me greatly. You don't even want to know how long it took me to figure out how to put an icon on there! And I still don't know how to make a profile/about-me/whatever you call it... I settled for a text post, as a placeholder.

My tumblr use is approximately:

* Set up DW feeds for the tumblrs of my little fish and a few significant others
* subscribe to everyone I know, more or less
* enqueue shiny stuff from little fish & various others
* occasionally at Poor Decision O'Clock, visit tumblr itself and go on a reblogging/enqueueing spree

It is possible to use it, after some getting used to it. Instructions on how to set up an "About Me" page:

1. Click the head-and-shoulders thing on the top right
2. Under "Tumblrs/serpentinekraith", click on "Edit appearance"
3. Scroll down a bit and click on the "Edit theme" button next to "Website theme"
4. On the bar on the left, scroll down and click "+ Add a page" (second-last option)
5. Make the page!

Tumblr's interface is so nonintuitive. (I'm there with the same username; I reblog somewhere between occasionally and a lot.)

Ahahaha, another tumblr holdout gives in...;) I'm elaineofshalott there too. The interface does take some getting used to. Once you do learn to use it, though, it becomes an awful timesink. :p These days I mostly use it when I'm painting my nails--I'll scroll through while I'm waiting for each coat of polish to dry.

I'm on Tumblr as littleousia, if you want to follow me. I don't post much fannish stuff, though. I'm sjw, aesthetic, naked ladies, and selfies.

Most folks have RSS enabled if you want to get fancy about it (and read the oldest posts first...).

I'm still refusing to get one - instead I ridiculously check various hockey tumblrs manually, *rolls eyes at self* :)

and harder to follow who's posting what
I've been wondering how people keep track of that - checking a tumblr manually, it's hard enough to be aware of whether something is an original post or merely a reblog.
