Tumblr – blog with elements of social network
Tumblr is a web service that allows you to write online diary (blog) with elements that are used in social networks. Ordinary Internet diaries (blogs) are common sites with already built-in system for writing news (one of the best and most popular system in use is WordPress). Tumblr is much more than that because in addition to writing simple texts, quotations, placing pictures, music and video content, allows you simply monitoring and cooperation with other blogs on Tumblr (the official name for these blogs are thumblogs) while remaining very easy to use.
You do not know whether Tumblr is for you? You probably already have a profile on Facebook or Twitter, but these are social networks. Services like Tumblr and Posterous has format that looks like a blog, but is easier to use. With a few clicks (especially if you have some of the extras for your browser), you can share with readers interesting video from YouTube or article that you have recently read. Content will look richer than on Twitter, and you will not have to write powerful texts to maintain blog.
Few step Log in
Tumblr has always been proud of its simple interface. Registration is simple, just enter your e-mail address, password, and specify the name of the new tumblog. After that you will be guided step by step through the selection of template designs and themes, as well as inviting friends from other social networks. When you are logged into Tumblr, there is Dashboard through which you can instantly add new content.
Reblog and share content!
Tumblr is different from other blog softwares because it contains elements of social networks. As you have on Twitter retweet, you can reblog Tumblr content. -Blogging really resembles retweet so far as you actually “quoting” users, and you can leave comments. If your content is interesting, but you do not want reblog it, you can only like it as on Facebook.
If you really like someone’s Tumblr blog, in the upper right corner is the Follow option. Content which you follow will appear on the front page of Tumblr. In the Community settings of your blog, you can allow anonymous comments or close the blog for all except those who follow you.
