Hello, all! Just a friendly little note from Monkees Confessions in regard to submissions. Clear guidelines for acceptable submissions are laid out on the Submit A Confession page, which everyone should be sure to check out before submitting.
In particular, please note that text only submissions will not be posted. All submissions should be in the form of text pasted onto a picture. This can be done using programs such as MS Paint, ImageReady, Photoshop, Picasa, Gimp, or whatever you may find best suits your graphic-making needs. Here is an example of what a correctly submitted confession might look like: http://i52.tinypic.com/nqv96a.jpg.
To make a confession in one of the above programs, simply take any Monkee photo you have, use the Text tool (usually a little icon with the letter “A” in it) to add text, type your text, and then save your confession. Presto! You’re done.
Please also try to make the text on the photos as legible as possible. Oftentimes, confessions are sent in with fonts in blinding colors or with the type so small or arranged in such a way that it becomes extremely difficult to read, which therefore makes MC far less inclined to post those submissions.
Finally, MC has an Ask box, but please note that this is not the appropriate place to submit a confession. Questions or comments related to Monkees Confessions are welcome here, but if you send in a confession to the Ask, it will not be posted.
Thanks so much everyone, and MC is excited to see more of your great Monkees confessions!
Sure thing, Anon! Here you go…
Hahah. Thanks, Anon! Not every Monkees confession has to be sexual, of course, but we made up those examples just to show people they don’t have to be afraid to submit sexual confessions to this Tumblr. Plus, the sexual confessions tend to be a bit more interesting and juicy than non-sexual ones! But we of course welcome non-sexual submissions, too.
:D Thank you, Anon! We’ve been very fortunate in that people are continuing to send us such great submissions, and we’re just happy that you all are enjoying MonkeesConfessions so thoroughly. Very much appreciated!
Aww…thank you! This really means a lot. We (there are two of us who moderate this Tumblr) enjoyed the Monkees Secrets LJ quite a bit and were bummed out when it stopped being updated. There seemed to be a bit of a void on Tumblr with Monkees-related secrets, so we decided to give it a whirl. You’ve inspired quite a few things that we do, including the icon that we use (it’s actually a cropped version of the photo you had for your banner). In fact, when we first started this Tumblr, we reposted a few of the old secrets from your comm (funny and/or juicy ones, like the woman who had an encounter with Micky in 1976 and bit him on the neck and he loved it). It helped to get the ball rolling, and now (as you can see), we get a pretty steady flow of submissions.
So thank YOU very much for laying the groundwork for this Tumblr and being our inspiration, and for this lovely message that you sent. You are awesome! :)
Hi Anon. We did post one of your confessions yesterday, despite the fact that it was not submitted in the correct format. The format for submissions is clearly outlined on the Submit A Confession page, and there is even an example given. Also, if you check our #mod post tag, you will find posts with directions of how to create a confession. We made one for your other submission, but we typically prefer not to do this because it takes up more of our time and is generally unnecessary. So if you could make sure that your subsequent submissions adhere to the submission format, we will have no problem posting them.
