Hi! I'm on Tumblr as namethatearthling, but I've also got an ask/rp blog for my Homestuck au, Herostuck (ask-herostuck.tumblr.com)
If there are any HS fans on here I'd love to get your url, maybe do a bit of rapid reblogging >:]

As for roleplaying it's a pretty tedious and annoying format to use. Plus most the roleplayers on Tumblr aren't looking for much other than fluffy romance and pretty face-claims. Trust me, you're not missing out on anything.


Whoa, hold up. While what you say is not untrue, there are good and thoughtful RPers everywhere. And let me tell you, some of my tumblr RPs have been the most intense that I've had, including elements of post-modern literature, heavy referencing to other works, trippy self assessment, among other things. It's pretty rare, but there are people there who really do want a good plot.

The format though is indeed extremely annoying. RPing on tumblr is both a blessing and a curse. But I enjoy the concept: basically, you roleplay primarily in first person, assuming the character you are playing has chosen to have a blog (or a magical journal or whatever works for your character's setting) and you interact with people in first person until you decide that you want to do paragraphs. At that point, you treat it like any other forum RP, except with reblogs instead if forum posts. (This is directed at Alura by the way.)

In addition, people tend to reblog things pertaining to their character's interests, and there are side pages for keeping track of relationships and other notable information.

Unrelated, my tumblr is listed on my profile and uh. I'm nothing like this on tumblr. nervouslaugh.mp3
I spent a year roleplaying as thestridebackmachine@tumblr who is now being repurposed for a plot I probably will never continue.

Huh, I never realised RPing on Tumblr was a thing, not that it's surprising. Tumblr is so addicting, I've lost hours just reblogging cat pictures....
anyway, my tumblr name is fallacyinwonderland

I have a tumblr, but the only reason I really use tumblr is to look up gifs for my RPs and such. Other than that it doesn't get used. xD

I probably don't update it as much as I should, but I do love Tumblr quite a bit. I normally just lurk, though.

I guess you have to find someone you know you can do a good role-play with. I did it with one of my friends, and we made a private tumblr, and it worked out pretty well. But its a lot of fuss for such a small thing.
