Why you SHOULD #tag your post…
*Using pictures taken from anime or fan art instead of photos in order
to respect privacy laws. Also, sorry for bad grammar and misspell.
This is Lucia – imagine she’s a tumblr user, one of us.
… and she’s Naoko – imagine she’s too a tumblr user.
Lucia is an active tumblr user.
She often reblogs and makes posts to
share with her follower.
Yeah, she does too that «Lucia is…»
stuff about reading, watching, etc…
As followers, we are glad to
partecipate to her life, however…
SHE NEVER TAGS HER POST!!!!!
not even a single note! i mean, what about a shorten?? nope!
• She’s lazy;
• She doesn’t find it useful;
• She just reblogs because she
likes the posts; (no
• She just wants to post nice stuff
on her blog, so she actually has
no need to tag stuff;
• there might be reasons i can’t
and last but not least,
• She doesn’t think (or care?) if
her posts might disturb or
annoy one of her followers…
You might wonder… «But why?»
Well, there might be reasons to this…
This is her inbox… but
oh, I bet she doesn’t
care about it.
How many actually
do care about these
Naoko too is a very active user. She spends a lot of time on tumblr looking for
posts, replying to her friends, sharing some images. And she loves talking to her
followers as well. You know what?
SHE TAGS EVERYTHING, EVEN GREETINGS POST FOR HER FOLLOWERS!
One might say «She’s stupid to tag her posts!»
• She has an organized blog. If she looked for a specific
tag, she would find it soon;
• She cares to avoid spoiler or disturbing posts to her
• Her followers asked her to tag some posts, because they
don’t want to see certain stuff on their dashboard;
• To help a follower looking for a tag in her blog and also
avoiding some posts during the reasearch (especially the
spoiler ones) without checking the whole archive;
• Many other reasons I can’t think of, to be honest…
However, what are her reasons?
But let’s not forget about a last and important friend...
What is it?
“Tumblr Savior is a handy extension for *…+ Tumblr”
What is it needed for?
“Tumblr Savior will save you from posts” containing specific words (#tags)
In order to use Tumblr Savior, the user must put some key words in the blacklist. Those
words will avoid the user to see unwanted post on the dashboard.
You don’t want to see Snk posts…
here! You won’t see it unless you click
on the «warning» post.
This way, you will see only the post
you want on your dashboard and
Tumblr Savior will not show you the
However, this happens only if the post is tagged with the word you blacklisted and IF the
user tagged their post. If they didn’t, you’ll see every single post…
Lucia posted again untagged posts about a very
popular anime and posted her edits as soon as the
raw of the last episode was released.
Naoko follows Lucia.
Naoko was about to see this new popular anime
her friends have been talking about, but when
she logged in tumblr she found gifs about the
main event of the episode – such as the death of
the main character…
She looked at the screen speechless and decided
to watch not the anime. Why would she
have, since Lucia spoiled her the ast episode?
Do you think is it Lucia to be blamed? Or is it Naoko? Which one of the two is right?
Lucia – she made a gifset… okay…. since the episode was just released and not
everyone watched it, why didn’t she use the tag #spoiler ? But that is not only a
matter of spoiler. What if Lucia posted again one of her BL playthrough?
Maybe, Naoko doesn’t stand BL (how many do?) and might be feel disturbed seeing
naked men having sex. Or what about Lucia posting some gore? What if she posted
realistic gore? Would Naoko stand such pictures on her dashboard? Or again, what if
Lucia posted picture about animals Naoko is afraid of, or about animals being hurt?
Tags should avoid Naoko to see everything she doesn’t want to see.
Naoko – «she shouldn’t follow Lucia’s blog if most of her pictures are not of her like»
However, she finds her blog very nice and she likes her edits. Just because of this she
shouldn’t be allowed to follow her? Because of that she should see the things Lucia
posts without saying a word? She has the right to blacklist tags, as Lucia should tags
her posts so that her followers don’t find themselves asking her to tag posts or to
So, why SHOULD you tag your posts?
Because some followers are extremely sensitive to some posts and cannot stand
the sight. We cannot disturb them with things they don’t want to see and if we
truly love our followers, let’s put a small word in the lower part of the post. Even a
small one. Let us allow them to blacklist some of our posts and see others.
If tags exist and so does Tumblr Savior, why are we making them useless depriving
them of their original work? They have a purpose, but let us not just use them to
say #hiiii lucia!! your new edit is great; #lucia this new BL game is skjdakldjaldkj
and nonsense. Let us try to use them also to do some good to our followers.
Really, a follower will thank you forever if you avoid them certain posts on their
dash and will hate you forever if you don’t.
