i do think it's worth telling people how important rebloging/boosting/etc is! but there is a HUGE difference between saying "thank you so much for reblogging my work, it helps to get eyes on my art!" and "shame on you for liking my posts and not reblogging it. you are the problem."
this isn't a specific callout, this isn't intended as a dogwhistle for anyone specific or even as some "these damned kids" thing. it's just a behavior i keep seeing from people that's finally getting frustrating enough to make me get all pissy about it on my social network with the least amount of followers
@qwilman I think of tumblr as a space heavily geared towards fan art. Which I like, but don't make. So I don't really get upset if people like my stuff without reblogging it.
I would make fan art if I had the energy to actually follow a fandom for more than half an hour. 😁
