So, I've started to use tumblr more actively recently. And by actively I mean, "definitely not the way the founders intended, the site HATES me, whatever." I mostly started it because I noticed that people leave tumblr (like all other sites) but by a quirk of the site, if you reblog something you basically get a permanent copy on your own blog. And I realized that three THREE of my favorite fanartists have taken down their fansites in the past few years and I PANICKED.

So one subblog is just me reblogging fanart. Great.

Then I noticed that while I was looking for fanart, I kept finding really fantastic meta. So I started a new subblog just for meta.

So there I am, my main blog where I'm experimentally crossposting, my art subblog, and my meta subblog.

I just reblog for the art. Virtually no added comments or tags, just a collection of fanart, messy and disorganized.

On my meta blog, I starting putting in tags. Not a lot, but making comments on meta I actually disagree with, or pieces I find particularly compelling or fascinating. On at least two occasions I've really written out entire response posts because the original meta was just SO interesting.

So, I'm pottering along for a few weeks, and this is tumblr so I'm not really sure how to measure success or anything so I start poking at my stats.

My main blog is still functionally unsued, so the only people I really interact with are [personal profile] lannamichaels, [personal profile] batyatoon and [livejournal.com profile] iceshade. Except...the occasional porn blog follower. :/

The fanart one is weirdly gaining a tiny following. Which is fun, and amusing as I seem to be followed by a lot of people who don't share my 'ships. Sorry! Hope you like the art! (Hope all of you don't unfollow me after my Draco/Astoria BINGEFEST tonight!)

The meta one, which is growing to be my absolute favorite little collection of mostly-organized awesome thoughts from the internet? Followed almost exclusively by porn blogs.

*sigh*

This would be the place on LJ where I would likely actually have conversation. Tumblr remains terrible for what I want.

That said, I have found a lovely group of people writing Cursed Child fanfic, so I just have to screw up my nerve and start leaving comments again?
