    Proposal to NSFW Tumblr friends!

    A while back I started a project I termed “Project Pickle” as a life raft for NSFW bloggers if Tumblr ever decided to nuke NSFW content. Well, the time has come.

    Attached are development previews from the work in progress site. Pickle would be a community for content creators to share their posts without restrictions on explicit content, enforcing an 18+ requirement. I may even be able to implement a system where you can upload your Tumblr backup and continue as if nothing ever happened.

    If you guys think this is a project worth perusing, REBLOG THIS POST! It might give me the motivation I need to finish it up.

    Might be good? Maybe? Do it up.


    Not a fan of the name but i like the idea lol

    Alternatives to tumblr

    Gratefully adapted from another blog What Can I Do About My Own Blog?

    Tumblr lets you back up and download your blog. Go to your Blog Settings page for the blog in question, scroll to the bottom, click the Export button at the bottom, and wait for an email that notifies you it’s ready to be downloaded. If it’s a big blog, it might be a very large file—this blog was 25 GB!


    Alternatives to Tumblr

    This list will be updated as I find more alternatives. Please feel free to share any others with me.

    * Mewe

    In many ways similar to facebook. You can share posts (remember to credit the original, as this is not automatic).  For large blogs like mine, having to “approve” every contact might be cumbersome. I haven’t found an “approve all” option yet. I am finding it a bit cluttered as unlike tumblr it doesn’t hide comments, so scrolling through large lists of comments is not my thing when I just want to scroll through pics. I may try something else. (lovelyboobphotos)

  • Twitter
    This is an obvious alternative, and while it’s not the same as Tumblr, it has some similarities and can reach a wide audience. It does not have a built-in posting queue, though some third party tools may support that.
  • Reddit
    If you have a community, setting up a subreddit is an easy way to establish a public forum for it. Individual users can post content to their profile pages as well, though it lacks advanced features like a queue.
  • Fetlife
    A community for various adult/fetish topics and subcommunities. More of a Facebook-of-kink than a porn sharing platform.
  • Discord
    This is a realtime chat platform that allows you to set up your own server with different channels, with web, desktop, and mobile app support. Another great option for establishing a central community location. Allows the sharing of media as well as all sorts of other options.
  • bdsmlr
    This is a Tumblr clone explicitly created for adult content. It seems to still be in the early stages and is a bit clunky still, but has potential. It also lacks in users, currently, but I’m sure that will change before long!
  • pillowfort.io
    This is another Tumblr-like service in early development. At the time of this post it is offline and undergoing security updates, but keep checking in to see how it progresses.
  • Sharesome
    An adult platform for posting and sharing content. This has some Tumblr-like features, allowing the reposting of content, addition of your own comments and captions, and curation of custom topics. Doesn’t appear to support queueing.
  • Swarmr
    A Tumblr clone that allows NSFW content and supports multiple blogs per account. There aren’t a great deal of options yet, and it doesn’t seem to have much content, but that could change quickly if people join.
  • Humblr
    A Mastodon instance for porn sharing.
  • Minds
    A blockchain/crypto-based platform that allows posting and tagging adult content. Seems to have issues with searching adult tags, however, and doesn’t have a queue.
  • Your own self-hosted website
    This is one of the safest options, though lacks the surrounding community to help with growth that a service like Tumblr has, so you’ll need to have somewhat of an established community already to migrate to your own platform, but it can be a great option to create a central hub for your followers and community members to base out of.
  • Tumblr < Pillowfort

    A few folks here mention Pillowfort as a place they might go after Tumbler marches us to the slaughter. Pillowfort is still in beta but it says this in their FAQ- “Below are a list of features that we plan on adding to the site or expanding, — Importing Tumblr and Dreamwidth blogs” At this moment I am backing up my Tumblr for the potential ability to upload it to Pillowfort…among other things. ;)


    Options are being brought to us, now. Read this open letter then peruse their option. -Wolf


    To: Tumblr Jeff D’Onofrio, Tumblr CEO New York City, New York, United States

    Dear Jeff D’Onofrio,

    On December 17, Tumblr will be banning porn from its site.

    By banning “adult content” from your website in truth you categorically ban sex workers regardless of how they are using your platform. You cut them off from the ability to build an audience for their work, and what’s even worse, you declare their very existence as obscene.

    Tumblr allows every content creator, artist, or small entrepreneur to build an audience and communicate with this audience at any moment in time - if you do not work in the adult industry of course.

    Many brands use social media to sell products. Social media and eCommerce are interlocked. You take this now away from every adult content creator around the globe. And that is wrong.

    You mentioned in ablog post titled “A better, more positive Tumblr”:

    “There is no shortage of sites on the internet that feature adult content. We will leave it to them and focus our efforts on creating the most welcoming environment possible for our community.”

    You are wrong: There is a shortage of sites on the internet that feature adult content, in particular when it comes to shadowbanning and the ability to also advertise on these sites.

    Look, here is what we do:

    Sharesome is a site that welcomes all the people that you just kicked off your platform. You gave them time until December 17th to export a backup of their blog to save their years of work. Meanwhile we will develop an import tool, so they can move to us, and we leave you with all the white supremacist Nazi blogs – because we ban that kind of shit.

    Posting for reference and for others to see.


    Mal zur Info….


    Sold me. I’m moving there:) Anybody that tells it like it is like Tudor Bold did, gets MY business.:)
