Storywriter: Next review is in progress, but it might be a while before I am capable of focusing on it. Also, I know I am a horrible singer, it was partially to avoid copyright claims that I can’t counter.
This is from spring,me, but it’s relevant to an annoying trend that seriously ticks me off here on tumblr: Asking/begging for asks.
Just don’t freaking do it. Especially if you barely have any followers, friends, or starpower here on tumblr. You can either wait patiently, or give people stuff to ask about. Asking for asks is incredibly rude and insensitive.
If your followers have nothing to ask, then do you reallythink asking them to ask stuff is going to change anything? It’s probably only going to lead them to do poorly thought out asks.
Not that giving people stuff to ask about isn’t going to prompt poorly thought out asks, but it also helps promote smarter asks and doesn’t put any pressure on your followers to try to come up with any.
Giving your followers stuff to ask about isn’t guaranteed to promote asks, I should know, but not getting asks doesn’t mean you should simply let your blog die. I can’t even begin to imagine how many askblogs died simply because they didn’t get any asks. That’s just sad.
