 So after much testing (and thank you to everyone who has helped and a special thank you to everyone who has not fled in horror), my plan for tumblr cross-posting is this:

Limit tumblr cross-posts to 1-2 a day, focusing on activism.  These posts will be tagged "activism" and if you have a paid DW account, you can filter them out.

Encourage everyone else to read my tumblr via the DW feed.      If you are on LJ, we have a feed there too.   My tumblr  has lots more fandom content and pretty pictures.  If you leave a comment at the RSS feeds, I won't be able to be notified, but I think that is a good compromise.

Okay, I'm going to try to filter them out. I mean, I like activism just fine, but 1-2 a day is a bit much right now. I just don't want to miss any of your 'other', non-cross-post activism posts. Are there any?

Ah, I meant other *activism* posts that are not cross-posts.

But the originated-on-tumblr thing may be something I could actually follow on tumblr, too, instead of here on DW. I'll see how it goes.

I'm glad the filtering by tag works at all, yay!

And I found that DW also supports the date filter (for paid accounts, just like LJ), which is awesome, since my dw circle just exploded from *no posts at all in two weeks* to *more than I can read every day*. :D

thanks for giving me feedback on what works for you

I'll see. I really like how the filtering works on DW - it's much better than on LJ, actually.

On LJ, you have to set the tag filters on the person, and then can add the person to different filters (but only with the same set of tags) - which just sucks.

On DW, you define the filters first, and then define which tags from which person in the filter you want to see.

So what I did now is I create a new activism reading filter and added your "activism" tag to that, and [community profile] thisfinecrew. So I won't miss any of your posts, and can keep the activism separate from the personal posts.

This seems useful to me, let's see if it works in practice.
