OK, I got a tumblr  
I'm trying to figure out how to do things.

Rule of thumb for tumblr -- is it bad netiquette to post links to like gifs, icons, fic, posts that I do here with just a small batch on my tumblr?

Anyhoo - link (http://arabian-bloodstream.tumblr.com/)

Totally okay to link in your tumblr to posts of icons and such. I don't see icon posts often, but gifs, sure!

Fic people pimp all the time.

I do that, and I haven't received any complaints thus far.

But, yay. I shall go follow you.

Ugh, comment didn't go through. Added you, as you already know.

(And I feel compelled to point out that the slash symbol does not work in the tumblr tags. It gives error messages and stuff. Portmanteaus and tags such as 'damon x elena' or 'damon and elena' are what is typically used. The TVD fandom is especially fond of portmanteaus.)
Arabian: Damon & Elena18arabian on January 3rd, 2013 08:39 am (UTC)
Oh, thank goodness, I hate DELENA, I'll go with damon x elena. Phew. Thanks for the heads-up re: slashes.
Aly J.simply_aly on January 3rd, 2013 08:49 am (UTC)
Delena is the most popular, I think, but damon x elena is second. Also, there are never any demi lovato/selena gomez posts in the damon x elena tag.

Another helpful tip: only the first five tags in your original posts show up when using the tag search box (all should be visible in your own journal, though) so choose them carefully if you want others to see your posts. (This is something that caused me days of frustration to figure out.)
Arabian: Bonnie02arabian on January 3rd, 2013 08:55 am (UTC)
Ah, OK. I did fix all the tags, but I guess I'll use delena from now on.

(Reblogged your Bonnie gif set.)

OK, I'm done now. Thank you so much.

I actually have had it for a while, but I just decided to do something with it last night. Not quite sure how to get followers outside of posting here, but I'm reblogging, and commenting on a few things, plus uploading a few things. Eh, we'll see.
she was a work in progress.: white collar: matt 2dreamer_98 on January 3rd, 2013 02:21 pm (UTC)
Cool, following you now.

Other people have already answered, but I don't mind if someone posts links to stuff on Tumblr instead of the whole thing, especially if it's a really big photoset or fic. I seriously hate it when I have to scroll past full-length fic in one of my tracked tags.
Arabian: WhiteCollararabian on January 3rd, 2013 03:29 pm (UTC)
Following you back.

Thanks for the heads-up. Ooh, I'd never post full-length stuff, how annoying!

Well look at you going all Tumblr on us :)

I have one too, search CaliRindo. I barely use it, but I followed you :)
Arabian: Damon07arabian on January 3rd, 2013 03:30 pm (UTC)
I followed you back.

I like the pretty gifs, LOL! It might help me get more creative with mine beyond the ep gifs I do. :)

Followed you :-) I go by my YT username on Tumblr (spacexbutterfly). I'm actually fairly new to it as well, haha. I don't know about other people, but for me, I still use my LJ account regularly - I kind of use them for different things. I love all the the pretty gifs and random opinions on Tumblr, but I love the ease of commenting on LJ (and reading fanfic, posting reviews, etc.).
