HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE TUMBLRPONE
Welcome to the world of Tumblrpon, the home of the many drawblogs (drawn response blogs) you may have seen on EQD! At this panel, we will discuss topics such as how to create a successful drawblog, how to ask good questions to help drawblogs thrive, and introduce you to this often-bizarre subset of the Brony fandom.
Hosted By: Fisherpon, CrusaderVX, Raikissu, and AutonomousZed
Here’s a video of most of the panel that I did with friends at Bronycan! The initial concept was pretty much a carbon copy of TJ’s at Bronycon, but we reworked it from the ground up to give it our own special flare. I was kinda worried that we wouldn’t get much of an audience, since Bronycan is kind of a small convention, but I was happily surprised to find that we got a pretty decent turnout!
Look at the pics below and see if you can find yourself~
Unfortunately, the Celestia Radio crew that was recording us had an equipment failure. :(
Thankfully, I had set up my own camera as backup. :)
Unfortunately, that camera randomly turned itself off halfway through, meaning that I don’t have the entire thing. :C
It made it all the way through us talking about Tumblr itself and the types of blogs, but failed partway through us talking about social interaction. That means that we don’t have any footage of us taking questions. Kinda sad.
Us panelists (Me, CrusaderVX, Rai, and AutonomousZed had a whale of a time, the audience dynamic was pretty good, we had some great questions, and I think it turned out pretty damn well.
Since at Bronycon, we didn’t end up making a presentation, I wanted to make sure that we had one for this one. I’m really pleased with the final product in that regard. You can see the individual slides of the presentation at the end of the video (set to music!), but in case you’re too lazy to watch the whole vid here they are:
[several slides that were basically the front page of AskMLCblobs, AskLittleRicePaddy, Ask-King-Sombra, AskPirateDash, Ask-KnightTrixie, Ask-Grimdark-BigMac, AskTerry, Jumped-Out-PinkieAnswers, and AskSpirit]
I included an absolute tonof drawblogs in the slides, so I’m not going to put a full list right here. Instead, I’m going to link a pastebin. Disclaimer: Relative position/size in the slides mean nothing except that’s where the picture fit well. Presence in the slides means nothing either except that that blog came to mind when I was brainstorming. Sorry if I forgot yours.
Thanks to everyone who came, and I hope to see you again next year!
