Designs On Tumblr

Do you know what attracts people more? Any idea? Let me share some with you. A fantastic layout, a catchy outlook attracts people. Tumblr allows you to use vivid plans and color schemes; it will enable you to use custom HTML in your Tumblr layout.


Always go for sleek and beautiful designs, not an overloaded one, because that may make your page look messy. Make sure you are making the +Follow button in an easily accessible place so that people can easily find that.


Appearance is what attracts them in the first place. Make a unique design for yourself that makes your page a wonderful one and can catch other people’s attention looking for content just like your page.


Links Or Full Posts And Reblogging

Confused? Well, let me tell you something then. People are usually more interested in reading the entire job on the platform than other pages through links. People have the habit of avoiding loops while scrolling through any medium. 


So, remember, even if you are reblogging, make sure you provide the entire post instead of redirecting the people through a link. Moreover, people are far more interested in viewing all the contents in a person’s dashboard instead of the URLs shared. 


Now let’s talk about the Reblogging section. Tumblr’s one of the key features is Reblogging. You can reblog other’s posts from your account if you find it useful for your brand or page. Reblogging allows you to gain followers, and also it makes the people happy from whom you have reblogged.
