No surprise here -- the Tumblr technology has some built-in shortcuts to make your tumbling as seamless as possible. Here are four shortcuts you can use while operating from your Dashboard [source: Tumblr].

  • J: Tapping thiskey advances you to the next post.
  • K: Hitting the K moves you back to the previous post.
  • Heart: Clicking on the little heart in the upper-right corner of a posting lets you "like" it.
  • Up Arrow: An arrow pointing up with a bar, or dash, over it will appear once you begin scrolling through posts. If you click on this, it takes you back to the top of the page.
