Anonymous asked: Do you allow submission stories, like, sending you a link or a story you might like?
Sure, anyone can send me anything! A link, a drawing they did, their story, whatever. Just use my “Submit” link to send me sumthin’ (it’s on the home page of my site, next to the “Ask”).
HOWEVER (and my Submit page goes over this), everything on my site is written and drawn by me only and I only, only, only will be posting my own work. So if the goal is to get me to post someone else’s work (like, someone else’s words and my drawerin’), I really can’t do that.
I love checking out people’s sites though! Especially if they create their own content. I am an Editor here on Tumblr for the #Illustration, #GIF, and #Artists on Tumblr tags, and every day I always make a point to feature people who I’ve never seen featured before.
Please feel free to point me in your direction to check out your work, or ask me any questions you may have.
If ya ain’t sure how the “Editor” program works, and what “features” are, here is the short explanation—
There are dozens of “official” tags on Tumblr, such as #Fashion, #LOL, #Science, #GIF, etc etc. Each official tag has Editors, and the Editors are chosen by the staff of Tumblr.
Each Editor gets 10 features a day in each tag they edit for. So, for example, since I edit 3 categories, I get 30 total features. When an Edtitor “features” a post, it goes to the Explore section of Tumblr, under the corresponding tag it was featured under.
Being featured helps give your work exposure, and possibly a chance at appearing on the Tumblr Radar (that is also chosen by the staff of Tumblr, but I don’t know any specifics). It’s basically a great way to get your work noticed by people who don’t follow your site, and to gain new loyal followers.
As always, ask me if ya got any questions, and I hope you’re all doing well! :-)
