I’m on Tumblr, but I don’t really understand how it works, I know how to update my own blog and post a picture and I’ve followed some people and I’ve made some searches and shizz but I just don’t get it, Like if I want to comment on something, do I have to reblog it? is that was commenting is on Tumblr? Or do I actually comment somehow? I haven’t seen any way to comment other than to reblog. Also, do people see what I’ve rebloged? Like the person who posted the post I reblogged and wrote on, do they see what I wrote? Or do I have to follow them/they follow me to see what I wrote? This is what I mean when I say I don’t get tumblr.
It seems so hard to adjust too, and yet there are literally millions of people on there, enjoying the experience and using tumblr like it’s not hard at all…. me? I’m like a lost sheep amongst wolves!
I really want to become actively involved in fandoms, I know I belong in Fandoms and you could say I am in fandoms but I don’t feel like I am. I have this mental image of Fandoms and that to actually be in one, you have to actually be actively involved with the fandom, I assumed the place to do that was Tumblr but much to my disappointment and difficulty, I just can’t work Tumblr. I have gone through topics I liked and reblogged some things with a comment or two but I’ve never had a response and I wonder if I’ve actually done it all wrong…really, this is my current situation. confused as hell over tumblr.
I feel lost when I’m on there, it seems like such a huge social media network with hundreds of choices to filter through. Naturally I search out the things I enjoy, MLP, Supernatural, BH6 and Disney and I’ve seen some super cool things but I just click the little heart, I assume that’s a LIKE right?
Obviously when I upload my own content, I tag and I’ve seen somewhere that only 5 tags work so I use 5 or less. true or not? I don’t even know.
In conclusion, I am at a complete loss when it comes to Tumblr. My mind just doesn’t seem to comprehend what the hell is going on. I see millions of gifs and people make them look easy and then I’m like, I don’t even know to save a gif, post a gif on here or on there! am I stupid? I feel stupid.
If you know how to use tumblr, please help. I’d really like to start getting involved and actually talking to people about the things I mutually enjoy and I just can’t seem to grasp it and it makes it hard for me to actually achieve what I’m trying to achieve.
Thanks for reading and if you have any advice I would love you forever. For what it’s worth, my name on there is flooginminnie. I don’t know if you want to follow me or whatever? It’s up to you haha!
See ya later alligator!
