Tired of having to log in and out every time you want to switch blogs?
Do you wish that you could have them all open at once?
Do you use Google Chrome as a browser?
Then here’s a solution that’s much more convenient than having two browsers open or going into incognito mode
Separate Profiles on Chrome is an easy way to keep track of all your Tumblr accounts, which is an absolute godsend for those that have a metric fuckton of roleplay accounts, like I do. It stores all your information on a separate profile, and all you have to do to access it is click on the profile name.
So here’s now it’s done (with PICTURES :’D)
Click the Wrench icon and go to your Settings
Once you’re there, scroll down till you see the Users. As you can tell, I have quite a few of them that I use, but yours will look different since you’ve only got one user.
Now click Add New User and it will open a new Chrome window
It will ask you to sign into Google, and if you have another gmail account, you can by all means go for it. It’s optional, though, so you’re free to click Skip for now
Once you’ve done one thing or another, you’ll want to go to your Settings again, and it will show your brand new user along with your original one.
So now you’ve got your user, and you can click on it and Edit it a bit, or import your bookmarks.
Now you’re free to go to Tumblr and log into your account. This saves your login information, saved passwords, cookies, what have you, on this separate profile, so now there’s no more worry about having to log out again.
Now the next time you use Chrome, there will be a new icon in the corner that shows your different profiles
Now you can do this as many other times as you want, for as many new accounts as you want.
There you have it. I hope this helps some people struggling with maintaining multiple accounts on Tumblr or anywhere else.
Ahh, suteki, as I’ve been using multiple profiles the old way, by means of custom shortcuts. This seems more efficient for website profiles though.
However, if you want to have a guest or school chrome, you can still use the other method too.
Just change the chrome shortcut to something like
C:\Users\Your Username Here\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe —user-data-dir=C:\Chrome\Guests
Im hanging out at the beach right now. Just dropped John of at work after a wonderful morning. He woke at 4 add usual for his early morning shifts and drove the 1.5 hours to work only to find that his schedule was changed and he didn’t work until 1145. So, I loaf the back of my car with blankets and pillows and drove down to surprise him. Boy, was he surprised! I backed the car up to an ocean view and popped open the back. We crawled in and snuggled a few hours away in the ocean breeze. With bagel sandwiches for breakfast, this was the best morning… ever.
I should mention, I drive a station Wagon… We didn’t curl up in a trunk, Mafia style.
Anyway, any thing going on today? Any big tinychat s I can weasel my way into?
