I mentioned before, a couple years past now, the idea of helping to promote A-U
on tumblr.

Before the idea I proposed was to start a tumblr specifically for A-U, but now I think
it would be better to start, if I just did what I could to promote A-U with the tumblr
I currently focus on.

I sometimes promote other bloggers, stores, and a band on my tumblr. I am building up
a pretty good folowing right now. And if I post some nice stuff from A-U, or even ask people
to visit, in return for a rate on their blog or something, that will be a good way to bring
traffic here again and hopefully we can revive this place.

With the Hobbit movies being out still and Middle Earth being alive again in them, this
seems like a perfect time to spark some interest in this website again.

If anyone else has an active tumblr, I think doing this would help.

Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas. I will be back soon to check.~

I just recently signed up for Tumblr, but I don't use it to promote stuff (for starters, I don't know how to do that). Here's the link, in case you want to give it a look:

http://harvester-queen.tumblr.com

Mine mostly focuses on my favorite dwarven king and other things Middle-earth. The only blogs I follow so far are for imaginexhobbit and Thorin Oakenshield confessions (I'm glad I'm not the only one that has those kind of fantasies, that have seemed to gotten worse since choosing him as a husband within the Family Tree). :)

Welcome back, by the way. :welcome:

Thank you! Image

It's easy to promote things with tumblr. :) All you do is make a post talking about something
you want to call attention too. Your followers see it and that's it! ^^ It's just spreading the
word about something to your followers. :) Followers might also reblog what you post if they
like it, and then their followers will see the post. So that again helps to spread the word more. :)

Oh, I see. You did just make it! :) I like the little scenario there, lol. ;p

I was looking for some good 100% LOTR/Hobbit tumblrs to follow yesterday, but most of the one's
I found are multifandom. Also, it's sometimes hard to find sfw blogs (in any fandom) to follow.
If any of the blogs you follow are 100% Tolkien stuff/elvish and sfw please let me know! I need
more to follow. :)

If you want to help with revival efforts through tumblr I can try to help you gain more followers
for your new blog. :) I do blog promo's for sfw blogs in exchange for thoughts on A-U as a way
to spread the url around. If you send me an ask telling me what you'd rate A-U on a scale of 1-10
and why I can post that and my followers will then see your thoughts and blog link. I know some of
my followers love LOTR/the Hobbit, so hopefully that will help bring some traffic to your bog. ^^

I'll happily share some of my LotR banners I've made and promote where I use them, as long as I'm allowed to sleep some more first. xD

I'll help in any way I can. I'm not sure of the tumblr promoting either. I'm new to tumblr as well. I've had mine for over a month and it took me that long to figure it out and just today I finally the the last few tweeks I wanted to on it. I haven't much on it yet though.

Have a look if you wish.

I did, I always make my own set, thank you very much!

I will make sure to write a note for tomorrow to share some of my artwork for this site on tumblr and encourage people to join in the fun.
I've just been too busy lately to do it.
