While the popularity of Tumblr-a web-publishing platform that allows users to post text, images, video, links, quotes, and audio to a short-form blog-continues to grow, there is still very little documentation regarding how to use it, leaving users confused about where to begin. As a starting point for Tumblr newcomers, as well as web designers who want to take their Tumblblogs to the next level, Tackling Tumblr explains how to maximize the full potential of this blogging and life-streaming platform from the moment you create your first post, how to make your Tumblr blog unique, and how to create your own custom themes.

Author Thord Daniel Hedengren walks you through posting quotes, links, photos, and audio; addresses finding and installing themes, using a comment system on your Tumblr site, and integrating third-party content; and demonstrates how to create your own custom theme. To expand customer reach, Tackling Tumblr also describes various ways to integrate Tumblr with other services, including Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr.
