Well, gang, Yellow Bricks has finally moved.
Not in the mood for the whole spiel? I’ve got a new blog. It looks just like this one used to, but most of you don’t follow it yet. If you’d like to keep reading my rambles and listening to the music I like, please click here and click the Follow button up top. Thankssomuch!
And now, the rest of the story:
When I started out on Tumblr a year and a half ago, two of the things I didn’t realize were that a) you can easily change your url without having to create a whole new blog and b) if you do start a new blog without creating a new account, the new sub-blog will never be able to follow anyone (the default blog is the one that does all the following), and whenever you follow or reply to anyone, it will be as your default blog, not as the sub-blog you may use as your regular blog. Furthermore, should you realize this problem after posting a whole bunch of stuff you don’t want to lose or leave behind and after realizing that all the cool features being added to the site (replies and the like) only work for default blogs, Marc LaFountain will tell you that Tumblr simply doesn’t allow you to switch your default blog. Short of starting over, you’re SOL.
It’s all very confusing, and I resisted switching back to my default blog (which used to be yellowbricksfail) for a long time because I didn’t want to confuse anyone and I didn’t want to lose any followers and I wanted to keep all my posts together. But there have been a lot of changes going on in my life lately, and now seems as good a time as any to make this change. My default blog now looks exactly like the blog you’re used to and I’ve changed the URL to yellowbricks. The difference is that you’ll need to click the follow button on the new Yellow Bricks in order for my new posts to show up on your dashboard. Easy peasy, right?
I’ll post periodic reminders for the next few weeks since I know a lot of you don’t read everything that crosses your dash, but I hope (fingers crossed) that this will be a super easy transition. And you guys: if you follow the new Yellow Bricks, you’ll be able to leave replies! You don’t even know how exciting that is for me. I’ve never been able to get them before, you see?? So head on over, okay? Last one there is a rotten egg.
