Hello Taylor Swift fans! Before I get into this little project let me tell you something about myself! I have been on Tumblr for 5 years now, posting about Taylor Swift and doing my best to be a person in this lil community that people respect. I have a unconditional love for every single person, as I also do for Taylor. But lately, I’ve noticed tension and I thought of something that could hopefully bring us all together when you see the finished project. It’s something that reminds us WHY we do the things we do. Why we sit in our rooms reblogging things about Taylor. Why we befriend people we don’t even know because of her. Why is panic because there is no new album 5 news (lol). The end result will leave us smiling. And that is my only goal here. To make us all smile, and to hopefully, maybe but this huge twist of fate- make Taylor smile.
**For best results, turn on Holy Ground RIGHT NOW…. no really. It’ll get you PUMPED!!! Turn it on. Is it on?? Okay, now start reading….
I want anything/everything!!!! Okay okay…. you are confused, I know. Basically I want:
- If you’ve met Taylor, the picture you took with her
- If you have a video of when you met her, I want that
- If you have a video of you or friends or anyone dancing at her concert
- A picture of you at her concert
- A picture of friends you met because of Taylor
- If she’s commented on your instagram, I want the screenshot
- If you have a reaction to anything she’s done, I WANT IT!!!
- Hey, you have a cover of Holy Ground??? GIVE ME!!!
- Dancing in your room to Holy Ground… Dancing alone with your friends to it??? Heck yes!!
- ANYTHING!!! ANYTHING INVOLVING TAYLOR THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!!!
I know I know, you are like “so you want me to send a video of myself dancing to Holy Ground????” Yes I do, but I want more. You see, I want to show Taylor what we do. While she’s off making and putting the finished touches on Album 5, we show her what we do. Some of us sit in our rooms with her old album on repeat, singing and making videos. Being silly. AND YOU KNOW IT! Let’s show her! Let’s show her the picture of you and her that you stare at 50 times a day. Let’s show her the Instagram comment that is your background on your phone. Let’s show her our quirky, fun, silly selves, having a good time at a concert. Anything people! Be creative! I want ANYTHING!!!!
- email@example.com is where all submissions need to be sent.
- »THIS IS IMPORTANT« if you are sending me a video, please do NOT sent me a link to a youtube video, or a link to any other type of website. Please, upload the video through the email and send it that way. Please! It’ll make everything so much faster.
- OH, did you forget where I said to send everything? That is okay, second times the charm(jk this is so you don’t forget)….. firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m taking all videos/pictures/audio and making a video. It will be all put together, very thought out, and made into a little “Hey Taylor, we don’t want to dance if we’re not dancing with you” tribute. I’ve thought about this for a week now. I have planned it out all in my head. SO many fun ideas I want to throw in there. I honestly thought about finding my own videos and pictures and making it, but I don’t want that. I want us all in one video, for her to see. Us Tumblr fans, get overlooked, a lot more than the ones on twitter or instagram. But here is our chance. The chance to hopefully and finally be seen and looked(I HOPE!) I know plenty of you who have been on here with me for the 5 years. But time doesn’t matter. I don’t care if you’ve been on here 2 hours, I want your stuff. I really do.
When it’s done, it will be posted. Here. On my Tumblr: whenallthoseshadows.tumblr.com and that doesn’t mean I’m only taking people who follow me, because how will I know that right? I don’t know how big this will get, but when it’s done, I want to signal boost the absolute crap out of it. I will be on separate twitter and instagram accounts trying to get anyone to get Taylor to see it. (I mean obviously I will need your help because I doubt one little girl can do this!) But really. I want her to see it. And I mean, what if she does see it? How cool will it be to say “hey, I was in the video that Taylor Swift tweeted about her fans being all cool and stuff!” I’m dreaming big here, but not dreaming at all gets you nowhere. Let’s do this :)
Hopefully you are still reading this… so here goes my favor. At the end of the video when she says the very last “but I don’t want to dance if I’m not dancing with you” I want to have a HUGE collage of VIDEOS at the end of A LOT of people saying that into the camera. You do not have to, I promise, it doesn’t mean I won’t take your stuff, but please consider it. I really think it would be absolutely adorable there at the end, I just need lots of people for it. So please, think about it! :)
Get to it! Send me pictures, videos ANYTHING!!!!! Go video tape yourself right now! Find those old concert videos. Let’s make this big. And fun. It’ll be worth it. I promise. Tell your friends! Tweet this! Made a video chat and record yourselves laughing and goofing off! Be creative, I want anything! Everything! I WANT IT ALL! (burts out into Sharpay HSM number) But really. :)
Not a lot of time, but since there isn’t much to do in the Taylor fandom these days, I thought there wouldn’t be a problem with finding old pictures and videos! Plus, I want to make it fast before she is bombarded with album 5! So please, anyone, everyone, dig up some stuff. Let’s make ourselves, and Taylor smile.
Any questions/concerns feel free to message me, but hopefully this cute lil post sums everything up. I love you guys, all of you. And I just want to remind you all of the smile we have on our faces when it comes to taylorswift! So… Ready, Set, GO!!!!!
PS- if you reblog this, it’ll get bigger, won’t it? :)
