OMG, how utterly satisfying is it to start a new count-up. Here is the new #1 in the tumblr round-up. Yes. Tha means I have decided to continue the initiative that was started a year ago. It has become a fixture of my week, and it gives me much pleasure to collect my favourite tumblr posts and collate them for you. Much to my surprise, it is also a definite crowd-drawer for my blog
so maybe I am not all that altruistic when I say that I will continue the round-up – I simply crave your attention… When WordPress sent me the automatically generated 2014 blog review, I was quite surprised to see the first ever round-up post up there in the Top 5.
But more telling is the posting pattern as recorded by WordPress. My best day is… ta da:
Missed five Saturdays out of 51. Looks like Saturday is now Guylty’s best day of the week 😉
For those of you who have only joined RAblogworld during the year, here’s a quick recap how it all came about: The Weekly Round-up was an idea fostered and organized by our fellow fan Agzy of Iwanttobeapinup as a reaction to Servetus’ decision to change the concept of her previous weekly Legenda posts. We initially started out with three weekly round-ups – for tumblr, for blogs, and for fan fiction. At this stage, only the dedicated tumblr edition remains, but maybe someone feels tempted to start a round-up for the other previously covered sections.
With my own focus firmly on visuals, I all too often miss new fan fiction and would certainly appreciate a collection of all things fan fic in one handy post. Similarly, I would love to be kept up to date with the most important posts from the blog world – especially as I all too often miss what is going on on Blogspot-based blogs. Just food for thought – not an order.
But now, without further ado – the first round-up of the year. Mostly containing posts from the last week of 2014, and much reference to the end of the year. But funny all the same.
Yeah, we needed a fresh banner, didn’t we?
