in large part to the interface which permits users to post updates quickly from a tablet, computer or smartphone. Blair Stover will teach you the key points.

In the Tumblr Theme Garden, one is faced with literally thousands of themes, both premium and free. Within seconds, these themes can be applied to one’s Tumblr blog. Using the customized Tumblr theme editor, each user can customize their themes by changing header images, fonts, color schemes and spacing. No knowledge of HTML or CSS is needed to use the theme editor interface.

What sets Tumblr apart from most blogging platforms is that it does not contain support for comments by default. In a partnership with Disqus, it is made simple for you to incorporate the Disqus commenting system in your blog. All you need to do is sign up of your own account at, and then use your Disqus username in the Tumblr theme editor. After saving your theme, comments will come into sight in their suitable place.
