Layouts, Codes, Tutorials, & Resources

Hey there, I'm Tess!

Welcome to my blog; I make lots of different layouts, codes, tutorials, and other resources for Insanejournal and Dreamwidth RPers! There's a lot to choose from and brand new content goes up every week!

Take a look around, and don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it!

Can't get enough resources? Why not subscribe to my Patreon for exclusive monthly content, or support the creation of more content by leaving a tip on Ko-Fi! ♡

Need an invite?

If you're unable to comment on my journal to ask for help now that anon has been turned off due to serious spam issues, don't worry! Just shoot me an email and I'll send you an invite code for Insanejournal. I've got plenty to spare!

Please Note:

I do not offer assistance with any sites other than IJ and DW unless it is for general HTML and CSS (ie. custom hosted pages and similar.) I cannot convert a code to a new site's rules because there are a lot of niche RP sites, and I have no way of knowing each one's limitations and caveats. Sorry about that!

New decade, who dis?

I just wanted to thank you all for a wonderful year, so buckle in for whatever this post is lmao. Is it sappy? Is it informative? Who knows, I haven't written it yet! Let's just see where this takes us lmao.

In 2019, you guys were able to fund:
  • 30 free codes
  • 24 patreon layouts
  • 14 free layouts & layout add-ons
  • 12 patreon codes
  • 8 free tutorials
  • 2 free HTML pages
  • The creation of:
  • Making [info]sanity free on Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.
  • The ability for me to do what I love to pay my bills, and this year especially, to be able to take care of the things that needed doing when buying a home for myself and my family. 💖
2020 is hopefully going to be a year full of Sanity updates, more generators and tools, and of course tons more of my usual resources. Fingers crossed that this is also the year I'll finally be able to take care of some of my medical needs as well.

I feel like this is probably where I'm supposed to say something inspirational and heartfelt, but I'm not that great at being vulnerable and I'm finding myself at a loss. Just know that, through all the highs and lows, I appreciate the relationship we share in your support of me as a creator and your use of and love for my work. I grew into myself here on IJ, both as a person and within my skills.

Wanting to put out the best work I possibly can, to make things easy to understand and use, to streamline my process to make user-end editing stress-free, and to cover every inch of the in's and out's of IJ, are all things that are important to me and these are the things that brought me where I am now. Without your continued support I don't think I would have been able to push myself as far.

As many of you know, Patreon is my sole source of income. This is my job, full stop, which is why I'm always reminding you guys that I appreciate you. 😙 If I could say anything, as a Patreon-funded creator, it would be this: Value yourself, whether you're a creator or a patron. Don't undersell what you're putting out there, and don't be afraid to ask to be paid for your work if you start freelancing.

Patrons, don't be afraid to make reasonable requests from the creators you sub to. Engagement (even for people like me, who are terrible at replying to comments a solid 30% of the time) is huge for us, and tells us what people like and want to see more of. I always want to be making what you guys want to use, because you're the reason I have a job, and my content is explicitly for you to use and manipulate to your heart's content.

Anyway, I don't have a lot of life advice, but that's what I've got for you guys as we yeet on outta 2019 and into a new decade. Oh, and maybe: Don't do meth... and uh, drink more water? WELL, THAT'S IT FOR ME LOL.
I'll see you guys on the other side!

I am terrible about commenting, but I'm going to take a moment here and step outside my comfort zone and give you some much over-due appreciation. I use a lot of your codes for my RP journals, and I appreciate that you take the time to put them out there for the general public to use. So, thank you for all that you do. I'm just one of many, but I appreciate it more than words can say.

You know I love you, boo. And here's hoping that in 2020 I'll be in a financial position to finally support your amazing, hard work on Patreon. Instead of just yoinking all your free stuff like a scrub. ;)

Absolutely love all the fun things you create to make RP an aesthetic experience as well as a written one!
