Anonymous asked: Why no updates?
The author sends apologies to the devoted AOBA fans for such long periods of time between updates. There have been few/no updates for a couple of reasons:
- The author has financial responsibilities and has to spend time working a job that pays the bills. This Tumblr is, unfortunately, not that job. (There is a donate button if you want to make this the author’s actual job, though.)
- There are a lot of real things happening in the world/in our own neighborhoods/within our own day-to-day lives, and sometimes it’s really difficult to put those feeling/thoughts about a subject into a cute little one-liner with a baby animal picture. Trust, it’s probably better for there to be a hiatus than you checking out the blog one day and seeing two baby elephants holding trunks with a superimposed 400-word rant on rape culture or stop-and-frisk or immigration equality or shaming or violence against the trans* community/trans* injustice, etc.
- Sometimes the author has a really difficult time trying to find baby animal pictures that fit the message. There is usually some correlation between the message and the image. You wouldn’t believe how few images there are out there that haven’t been meme’d to exhaustion.
With that said, followers of AOBA are welcome to keep the blog posting more regularly by submitting their own posts. If you decide to, please send the photo (or link to photo) with the text in the caption and not already whatever-art-program-you-use’d onto the image.
Thank you for all of your patience and support.
Consensual belly rubs,
Mx. The Author
