tumblr themes

So I have a question guys… should I make a tumblr for my themes? I mean, at the moment, I only set up an Ettudis tumblr site for people to ask questions and make comments but should I release tumblr themes on it? The reason why I originally didn’t want it is because I wanted the themes to be an extension of my site, but if I make it a tumblr site, it would become seperate… does that make sense?

Like, I found that many people are just linking directly (in reblogs and stuff) towards my tumblr theme page, not my actual site homepage. And I feel that if I just completely move all my themes to a tumblr site, they will just completely ignore my site… so yes, the main point of this topic is how I want to direct traffic to my site.

Anyhow, I need suggestions. Making a tumblr site for my themes would popularize my themes but de-popularize my graphic site. In other words, traffic will be directed mostly to the tumblr site instead of my site. In a way, I don’t want that because my site is my priority.

I dunno. I’m thinking, of maybe post tumblr previews on the tumblr site, but have them direct back to the main site. But that’s soooo complicated.  I mean, as a visitor, I would hate that. gahhhh *tears out hair* I don’t know what to do!!!!!!

On a side note, sorry if I have been neglecting my actual site comments. I’ve been somewhat busy and lazy on replying to people. But I have answered any questions regarding tumblr themes HERE.

EDIT: Also, if I did make a tumblr for my themes, I could also post some “found” resources, and direct more questions there. Like, the whole set up would be nice.

version fifteen

EDIT 08/05 – new tumblr theme. I think I have tumblr-theme-making OCD. I just keep wanting to make them even though sometimes, I don’t even have an idea. Still too lazy to write a fully blog post.

EDIT 08/04 – and because I am such a silly person who stayed up all night making another tumblr theme, I just re-edited this post because I’m too tired to write another full blog post.  It’s 5:00 AM and I haven’t slept all night. So… I need to hit the sack.

EDIT 08/03 –  I NEED PEOPLE TO TELL ME WHETHER OR NOT THIS SITE IS HARD TO NAVIGATE AND WHICH BROWSER YOU USE .

On a side note, I added a new tumblr theme. Recently, I’ve developed a new love for pink. I’ve been obsessing and wanting to code things in pink and bright baby neon blue . Strange~

——————————-

Definitely not as graphically beautiful as my previous layouts but I like the simpleness and oh my dear goodness, all the transitions, hover effects… THE CODING TOOK ME FOREVER. Well, the graphics did too since I ran out of inspiration and made so many drafts. But mainly, the coding drove me CRAZY!

I know I say that about 90% of the time, but that’s because for each version, I want it to be something new and fresh, so I always try something new with the coding… which means, I take forever. Take a look around, there’s some pretty neat effects all without javascript.

Anyhow, no massive huge updates other then this pretty little layout and 2 brushes.  I re-formatted most of the pages, particularly the tumblr themes page because that seems to be the most popular content so I wanted it to be very accessible for everyone. I was going to make a tumblr theme today, but since this took me practically an entire day, the tumblr themes and updates will have to wait.

– new version
– 2 brush sets
