Okay, since I have actually started posting scraps of meta on Tumblr, to go along with the tasteful selection of reblogged fanart, I suppose I should point my profile here at my account there.

So. I'm [tumblr.com profile] branch-and-root over there.

I'm still trying to figure out how the hell tumblr works. I can't find a goddamned thing over there. But I'm glad to have this, and will definitely check out your tumblr, both for content and in the distant hope that perhaps I will learn by seeing what you do.

I shall jump in to say that you probably also want to install some browser extensions that improve the interface. Tumblr Savior (greasemonkey for FF, extension for Chrome and Safari) lets you blacklist certain tags. For instance, I blacklist the holy hell out of Supernatural, Dr. Who, and Sherlock, because I just don't give a crap, though some of the people I follow do.

Tumblr H8 lets you block a certain single post, if it's not tagged or it's not something you care to blacklist entirely.

Missing E adds a LOT of functionality to Tumblr and can be customized all over the place. Tumblr hates Missing E and will give you a warning every time you log in, trying to scare you away from using it, but just ignore that.

Etiquette-wise, it's generally Not Done to post critique of something and tag it with that something's tag. This harshes the squee of those following that tag. If you reblog fanart, you really ought to try to include the source and be respectful of the wishes of fanartists who do not wish to have their art reblogged. Saucenao.com is pretty good for tracking down sources.

If you are reblogging a conversation, it's good to snip out the long blocks of quotes and just repeat the most recent exchange.
