If you’ve never used tumblr before, this is the place for you! I know that this site uses a lot of odd terminology, so here’s a quick overview:
Tumblr can be used as social media or as a blog. If you would like to start your own tumblr to follow blogs like mine, you’ll have to go to the tumblr homepage and sign up. Then, you can hit the follow button on the top right of your screen. I’ll be in your newsfeed every time I post!
If you don’t want to make a tumblr, no problem! Just bookmark my site, and you’ll be able to access my updates.
The top menu allows you access to several different parts of my site.
Search lets you comb through my previous entries to find something specific. I will tag my entries with describing words that allow this function to work.
About pops out my cute little bio and my cute little picture.
Questions takes you to a page where you can, as you might have guessed, ask me questions. These questions will be answered publicly on my blog. Many people use this function to comment on entries or request an explanation of something. If you would rather ask me something privately, please feel free to Facebook or email me.
Subscribe puts me on your RSS feed. I think.
Archive takes you to a calendar-esque view of my blog.
Random will pull up a random entry of mine. It doesn’t work as a random number generator, much to my dismay.
I have great faith that you’ve figured out where Tumblr Intro takes you. FAQ will take you to a similar page where I answer commonly asked questions.
Terminology and Other Information
If an entry says that I have reblogged something, it simply means that it was not my original content. The reblog function is similar to the share function on Facebook or the forward function on email.
If a picture is moving, there are two possibilities. One is that I’ve posted a GIF, a type of picture-video combination. GIFs are often used on tumblr to indicate a common response or as a joke. The other possibility is that I’m Harry Potter. Your call.
Clicking on my title brings you back to the most recent entries.
This is pretty much what you need to know to get around. Let me know if you have any other questions!
