In which, apparently, I have a crisis of confidence all over tumblr.
I just installed xkit.
I am considering just removing all the politics from my dash, which is probably terrible of me but sometimes being reminded of all the injustice and horror in the world is Just Not Good for me - but on the other hand I feel really squirrelly about just running out entirely on the social justice side of Tumblr. Not that I’ve been doing much there or that anyone cares what I do?
(Apparently it’s a bad depression day too, yay.)
I am wondering if Xkit can help me with this (maybe I can set it up so I can say sometimes I have the cope for politics and sometimes I don’t?). I have no idea, Xkit is huge.
1. Under “settings” go “Allow replies from people you follow”?
2. Blacklist and Postblock. *firm nod* Self-care is important. If something is blacklisted, it gives you a notification that there’s a blocked post, and then you can choose to click and see, or pass it by.
Dear queerwombat: I recently gave up and went for xkit for more or less this particular reason.
Doooo iiiit. I have not regretted the ability to block and filter and blacklist. I have not suddenly become deluded that I live in a flawless peaceful world without injustice and misery. I have not suddenly stopped doing what work I can to help, either. But I have stopped having major depressive jags every time I open my tumblr dash, and stopped considering and yearning for the ability to delete all social media altogether, and frankly am better equipped to deal with what I can deal with when not drowned by a constant stream of OH NO EVERYTHING IS AWFUL SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING.
Thank you for the encouragement! <3 Have installed relevant extensions, now to figure out wtf I actually want to block/blacklist…?
