[personal profile] prettyarbitrary has worked out an IFTTT recipe  to bridge the gap between platforms and   x-post from LJ to Tumblr here, using your LJ's RSS feed.  Because, PA is awesome.

This should work just as well with the RSS from a dreamwidth.

I wanted a version that only crossposted posts using certain keywords.  Using the RSS feed, IFTTT kept giving me "Recipe check failed" but when I changed the url to the atom feed (literally, replace "rss" with "atom" in the url) it worked fine.

So when it seemed like anybody whose tumblr had adult stuff on it was being hidden from tag searches and everybody was really upset, it very briefly got my hopes up that there would be a mass exodus and fandom would come over here where there is a working comment system. I didn't want people to be unhappy, I just wanted them to find happiness over here. I fear it is never to be.

I do admit, tumblr's queue feature is really nice, because I go on little kicks where I have a bunch of stuff to post, and then I dry up for days on end.  Being able to do it all in one go, but then have it automatically trickle out without spamming people all in one day is lovely.

Tumblr:
Random Person on Tumblr: I saw this pretty fanart on deviant art.  It was drawn by Some Artist Person and I think it's BRILLIANT.  Look at the use of color!  And the faces are amazing.  Go look at the rest of her art at this link right now!
Some Artist Person And All Their Friends: YOU FUCKING BITCH YOU POSTED THIS YOURSELF INSTEAD OF REBLOGGING IT FROM ME HOW FUCKING DARE YOU I WILL KILL YOU AND EAT YOUR CHILDREN YOU SHITTY LITTLE WASTE OF SKIN.
Me: note to self - no reccing fanart on tumblr.  I am glad I learned this rule secondhand.


Twitter:
What the world needs is the equivalent of Tumblr Saviour that would make anything containing the words "please retweet" disappear.  After five screensfull of charity 5Ks and missing pets in the Seattle area, I gave up even trying to catch up.

Facebook:
.
I was NOT ready to be connected with everyone I ever knew.  I should hide in a hole and never log in again.  And fake my own death.  And move to Norway.  And cease to speak any human language.  And possibly pretend to be a sheepdog or a large rock.
