Tumblr is an easy to use, fast-growing blogging platform with a strong emphasis on simple, no hassle content sharing. Some would describe Tumblr as much more attractive and streamlined than Blogger and a lot simpler than WordPress. Tumblr is a form of microblogging which enables users to post texts, images, videos, etc, such that their followers can receive up-to-date entries. The birth of Tumblr was to facilitate such postings.

While Twitter is the number 1 in the microblogging apps space due to it’s huge following and openness. One of the downsides however is the limited ability to customize the personal twitter page, changing background and styling the links is about all you will get. With Tumblr, there is a lot more, you can create a sophisticated unique theme very easily, all you need is a basic knowledge of CSS, and you are good to go…or you can download a theme. You can see more good reasons here to use Tumbler as well. In this article I will do a round up of hand-picked beautiful and attractive Tumblr themes to choose from. Enjoy!

Hello, good job you did there :)
I have a question–can I actually install the themes above to my tumblr? I tried clicking on the link but it redirects me to the creator. Thank you!

So far, every place I’ve looked for Tumblr themes, nobody has bothered to list which elements each theme uses.

I mean, I switch to one theme and then discover that it doesn’t list what a reblog is reblogged FROM, while another fails to mention how many notes a post has, while many others decline to say when a post was posted.

So it would seem a major thing one would look to blog posts like yours would be which themes include what.

(Yeah, I know, I should code one myself.)

For my personal blog I use blogger, do you think it would be wise for me to transfer to tumblr? If I do transfer, will the Facebook like counts reset?

Really depends on your needs. I prefer WordPress myself for traditional blogging and most other purposes… Changing platform may change your urls and then your will loose facebook counts and even worse google organic traffic. There are solutions for this and the simplest possible of course is to keep the same url structure… not always easy though but im most cases it is possible.
