Dalia, I have so many questions about Tumblr, maybe you can help. OK, so I'm following a bunch of blogs of people that seem to like the same thing and I can <3 heart them and I can reblog them but there seems to be no way to comment on their posts.  How can you engage with people? 

And after you've reblogged people, followed people, tagged your blogs with keywords they might be looking for, how to you convert that into a real relationship?  There doesn't seem to be a way to directly converse with people.

I was thinking about writing short fan flash fiction for popular books/TV shows in my genre.

Exactly as was said, you reblog the post and type your comment there. You can also send people asks, if they have them enabled. The conversation goes back and forth via those reblogs.

You basically convert it into a real relationship the same way you convert people into friends. You act cool, talk about the cool stuff you like, and try to involve people. When you post something, you can tag someone's username and if they check that tag they'll see that you posted it for them, which is a cool way to post a photo that you think a user would like.

Reading your craft points, especially the first two, I'm reminded of a writing book I read years ago where the author said that some writers write best on a strict schedule and others write when the mood strikes them, and he recommended following his process, which was to flip flop back and forth between the two. Of course, he also practiced Heinlein's policy that says "Writing is nothing to be ashamed of, but it should be practiced in the dark, and the hand should be washed after."

Excellent post!  thank you!

So, based on this, I just signed up for a Fiverr promotion without really researching it.  Worth it, anyone?

Depends on which one... most are not worth $5.

Great list, thank you!

Might want to also add the book, Self-Editing for Fiction Writers. It gets fairly regular mentions.
