1.) Keep it simple, and clean. Don’t overdo a description, just keep it plain, simple, and easy to follow! Viewers like it that way.
Victini note : If you want to over do it and give backgrounds or statistical breakdowns of your characters, make seperate sections for it. I’ve seen people create a post for this purpose and create a link in their about me section that links back to it! For instance, Jack the Meowth does this! [http://shinystalker.tumblr.com/]
2.) Try not to do regular reblogs. You’re an ask blog, so keep yourself as an ask blog; if it accidentally happens, then delete if it’s not relevant.
Victini note : I-If you like to do regular reblogs at least try to delete them after a bit or after you’ve gotten your point across. Clutter is no fun on an ask-blog!
3.) If you’re an RP blog, make sure you don’t reblog the same post over and over again, they get kinda big. ^^;;
Victini note : If it’s getting long, delete everything. Copy what the user said right before your next response, put it in quote tags, and reply below. Delete roleplay posts frequently to avoid clutter as well. :3 Try to tag your roleplay posts with #roleplay so people can blacklist those responses if they wish not to see them. Giving blacklist convenience actually helps bring in more followers believe it or not. ^^
4.) Can you not draw? Who cares? C: Nidoking is extremely successful, he doesn’t draw answers! Answer how you can, through voice, art, text, doesn’t matter!
Victini note : Ask-Arbok is another example of great success in text answers, a-as well as excellent character development! You don’t have to draw to be incredible. Character development is key in being a great ask-blog. You can be an excellent artist but if there’s no character behind what you’re drawing, it’s not all too pleasing in the long run…~
5.) Also, when it comes to backgrounds; try not to implement characters in the background, unless they’re spaced out.
Victini note : Keep backgrounds very simple. They can be of your character(s) but make sure it’s only one or two of them at most otherwise it just looks like a mess. ^^;
6.) Don’t add automatic music to your blog. Please. Make sure that you’re able to stop the music.
Victini note : N-No one likes music they can’t stop! If you’re like me, or most other people, you listen to your own music while browsing. Nothing is more bothersome than getting music blaring over yours that you can’t stop. Try to make the player obvious too! Sometimes I-I go to a blog and cannot even find the source of the music… and when I do, it’s hard to click the pause button because the player’s so small! Try to avoid that… ;w;
Even other fans of the show attack me. Just because there are some bronys that take things to an extreme I get lumped in with them. The fact that memes are ponified and pony crossovers are made makes them think “The bronies are trying to fucking shove MLP down everyones throats”
No we’re not! We’re just having fun! Why is that so hard to get…srsly No more telling ppl outside tumblr I’m a brony. Why is tumblr the only place where I’m not out numbered by haters? Man fuck everything
This is EXACTLY WHY I’m still a closet brony IRL, everyone
