7 Tips for a Successful Tumblr Blog ...


Tumblr is the one social media site that hasn’t had an influx of parents ‘cramping’ its style, so consider these tips for a successful Tumblr blog.

It’s a place to express yourself and be creative.

You can reblog pictures, post text, and share videos you love.

I’ve been running my blog for quite a while now and these are my tips for a successful Tumblr blog.2

1. Whatever You Want

Your Tumblr is your own.

You can do anything you want with it!

The best tip for a successful Tumblr blog is to keep your blog authentic.

Reblog what you’re interested in, even if it means your dash is full of kittens and baby elephants.

You are who you are, and Tumblr isn’t the place to apologize for it.

You’ll be far more successful on the site if you’re yourself, not caught up in the number of followers you have.

2. Background

The background for your blog needs to be visually pleasing.

Whenever I’m on Tumblr, I click onto blogs and within a second, I either keep scrolling or leave the page.

Make sure the colors and background photos complement each other.

You may consider a floral background like I have.

Don’t put a picture of your friends or a photograph as the background;

it looks tacky.

Instead, use an image that blends so that you can’t tell when it starts and stops.

3. Endless Scroll

Most people stick to their dash but after a while, it gets dead.

When that happens, I start searching for more blogs to follow.

One thing I keep in mind while scrolling on someone’s blog is if they have an endless scroll.

Tumblr is all about procrastination and finding new cute things or having conversation topics with friends.

People who have endless scroll on their blogs realize this and are worth following.

It takes too much effort to hit ‘next page,‘ and then forgetting what page you wanted to go back to reblog a photo.
