Okay , this is super super important. You may start off with a url like katie98 or melissa123 or something like that. Please do not use urls like that , they’re just really boring haha. Also do not make your url too long , like tomorrowistomorrow-todayistoday.tumblr.com. Make it short and simple! Go for something more creative! Urls are also important in promos. People will most likely click on interesting urls , not boring ones! So be creativeeee! And make your url easy to remember , not something with lots of dashes preferably or with ‘0’ instead of ‘o’.
YOUR BLOG -
- Your blog is your blog. Post whatever you want , dont let people judge you by what you post!
- Delete text posts after like 15 - 30 minutes. Text makes your blog look really messy.
- Try to make your background a plain color. Of course picture backgrounds could work too , but when you have text on it , it might be hard to read! For boho blogs , usually light backgrounds , so white ,light blue , light brown , stuff like that. For party/hipster blogs dark colours or neon colours!
- Dont put too many links! If you have more than 8+ links , make a special link page!
HOW TO GAIN FOLLOWERS -
Okay. This is the question that I get the most. Like seriously. Read the following steps :
- REBLOG ALOT! By reblogging alot people will notice your blog more = more followers :D
- Ask people to check out your blog. Politely. Make sure that your blog has the same theme to theirs , or they probably wont follow.
- Ask people to do promo4promos with you , but make sure you read their FAQ first! Once again , ask this politely!
- When you’ve reached about 300-400 followers , start doing promos! Such as : First 5. Dont immediately do first 20 or something like that. Chances are it’ll only get about 6 notes.
- Do not lie about your amount of followers. People will lose trust in you and unfollow. No one wants to follow a liar , right?
- Once you’ve reached about 1000+ followers , start doing double promos with people! But then again , read their FAQ first! Some people only do double promos with people who have like 4000+ followers!
- PLEASE DO NOT ADD YOUR URL TO PICTURES YOU REBLOG. DO NOT ADD ‘IF YOU WANT MORE BOHO , CLICK THIS AND FOLLOW’.NO.JUST NO.NO.NO. IT ANNOYS ME SO SO SO MUCH. ITS MY PICTURE, SO DONT ADD YOUR URL.
ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS read their FAQ before asking ,if they have one! If you ask them a question that has already been answered in their FAQ , they probably wont answer your question. Some people get lots of questions a day and it’ll be really annoying if people ask you questions that have already been answered, right?
But dont forget , tumblr is to express not to impress.
As much as I love having lots of followers , my blog is for me & I post what I like.
If you have any more questions , or need someones honest opinion about your blog , ask me! I’ll try to be as honest as possible haha :D x
