2. No matter what, you always have followers that don't follow the guidelines for submitting posts.

If you want your submission to be posted, you gotta follow the guidelines! They are in the links for a reason!

5. You have to make a formal announcement every time you decide to go on vacation or else followers will bombard you with questions and annoyances.


"What's with the blog?" "When will my submission get posted?" "Hey, sorry to bother you, but..." – can y'all just chill?!

6. You constantly have to make sure you're not accidentally feeding the trolls who attempt to play devil’s advocate.

Tbh you're either trying to be difficult or dealing with special snowflake syndrome.

7. You always get incredibly annoyed when you say you're not taking submissions but followers submit posts anyway.


What part of NO SUBMISSIONS did you miss?! You're not slick submitting via "fan mail" instead of the "ask" or "submit" feature!

8. You try not to get defensive when reblogs throw shade at the admins.


But in reality, you want to tell them have several seats 💺. It's easy to talk mess when you don't see what comes into our inbox.

10. It's conflicting getting submissions with links to a GoFundMe page.


You don't want to be heartless, but you know if you open it up to one person, you have to open it up to all.

12. You get irritated whenever someone sends in submissions that are thinly veiled self-promo for the submitter's own blog.

18. You have a hard time understanding why your followers forget you have a life outside of Tumblr.
