10 Tumblr Tips for Newbies

Author's Note

I hadn't even looked at Tumblr, let alone used it, before researching this article. I quickly realized the only way I could find good, reliable tips for you was to create my own Tumblelog and learn through my errors. So now I have one -- Via de la Plata -- and am starting to tumble. I have to say, the page was fun to create, and I'm looking forward to embellishing it whenever I have a chance. So what the heck is Via de la Plata? You'll have to read it to find out.
