The most important function of your Tumblr is posting entries/articles. (From there the most important thing is appropriate grammar, correct spelling, and attribution.) Today we'll examine how you post entries.
Turn on your computer, connect to the Internet, and open your browser. Direct your browser to www.tumblr.com. Log in to your account.
When you log in to your account, you'll see your dashboard. This is where you can read entries from blogs you are following, post entries, and modify your blog's settings and appearance. The top row says TEXT PHOTO QUOTE LINK CHAT AUDIO VIDEO. When you click one of these icons you tell Tumblr what you're posting. We'll start with PHOTO.
If you are uploading an image from your computer (or external hard drive), click BROWSE and select the image you want to upload.
If the image is located on a remote server (hopefully your own) click USE URL INSTEAD and paste the URL.
The text box, or CAPTION, below is optional. I think you should provide a few words regarding the image. (Especially if it is not yours. It's called attribution, people!)
If you want to take a photo using a Web cam, click TAKE A PHOTO! If you want to add more than one photo, click +ADD ANOTHER PHOTO.
This is my screen before the entry was posted:
You can also upload an image when you ADD A TEXT POST:
Tumblr also has a quote template. It looks like this:
For every type of post:
The sidebar on the right specifies when you want your entry posted, if you want it sent to Twitter, and which tags to add.
When you're ready, click CREATE POST!
