Tumblr or tumblr. is principally the mother of the micro-blogging scene providing a platform for updates too large for Twitter, and too small to fit into a full-size WordPress blog post. Tumblr is a hosted service, and it’s easy to setup and manage. All you need to do is to complete a basic sign up- screen in order to start your own blog.

Tumblr is an easy way to run a blog, and it’s growing fast. Today they have more than 77 million blogs. It allows you to share anything with ease through 6 different posting options: text, photos, quotes, links, audio and video. You can share through the Tumblr dashboard, mobile phone, desktop client or by email. Tumblr also has the social feature of being able to follow and receive updates from friends and contacts, just like networks such as Twitter. It’s of course relevant to customizing your Tumblr blog if you want it to look awesome. In this article, we’re showcasing a collection of awesome Tumblr themes you can use for your Tumblr blog.
