Where to Find Me in the Wake of the Tumblrpocalypse
This is my last post on this blog. I will not make any further posts here. I will not even log into this blog anymore. If you want to talk to me, please peruse the options below.
Twitter -Â https://twitter.com/LordAardvarkÂ - This will be my primary social networking platforming for the next few weeks, and will remain as my rapid-fire social media. This is the go-to for the fastest updates on what I am doing and what I am working on. I highly recommend you follow or bookmark if you want to keep up-to-date.
Patreon -Â https://www.patreon.com/lordaardvarksfmÂ - I donâ€™t make public posts here often, but it is nevertheless a stable place to find me.
Discord -Â https://discordapp.com/invite/htCPJRpÂ - An open chatroom for anyone to drop in and talk. While it is designed primarily for the discussion of my work, particularly among Patrons, it is free to all, and we do have channels for discussing other artists, discussing your own art, and for technical help in SFM and 3dsMax or Blender. I welcome you all to come join us.
My website -Â http://lordaardvark.com/Â - It is currently being upgraded to take on the role that this blog used to play. Itâ€™ll take a few weeks, but when it is done, I will be able to make long-form multimediaÂ â€śblogâ€ť posts, with capabilities for people to like, share, and comment on the posts as they see fit. My webdev and I are working to make it as painless and easy as possible, with log-in support through existing platforms like Twitter and Discord. It will also have the capabilities of sending in anonymous questions, much like Tumblrâ€™s Asks system. Ideally, itâ€™ll be home away from home - functionally similar to Tumblr in every way but social networking.
With that being said, this is the end of a chapter - but far from the end of the story!
Itâ€™s been fun spending the past 6ish years with you all here on Tumblr. Weâ€™ve been through a lot. My old blog had 50k or so followers before it was nuked for stupid DMCA bullshit on Nintendoâ€™s behave. This one has reached over 26k followers. And all the while, we have learned and grown together.
To those of you who choose to keep up with my journey through this wonderful, perverted world of animated smut, I welcome you all with open arms and a promise of an exciting, interesting journey.
For those of you who decide that this is your last stop, then I wish you all the very best in wherever the currents of life take you.
To my fellow artist friends and, yes, even foes, I wish you much the same: good fortunes and good luck. We are scattering far and wide now, with nothing short of a half-dozen different platforms taking us in as refugees. The SFM porn community hasnâ€™t seen such a fragmenting since the death of DigitalEro, and unlike then - where we all fled to Tumblr - there is no one platform waiting for us.
To my fellow artist friends and foes, I further say this: these next few months will be hard. Our followings will shrivel to a fraction of what they used to be. For many of you, the trickle of fan input you used to have may seem to disappear entirely. I encourage you to stay optimistic, to keep pursuing your passions, and above all else: stay true to yourselves. Make what you make for yourself, not for your followers.
With all said that there is to say, I repeat now the closing words of a franchise that has long abandoned us, much like Tumblr abandons us now:
â€śThis is where I get off.â€ť
