Our tutorial focuses on explaining what Tumblr is, how to create and set up a webpage, navigate the website, and interact with other users.  Our goal in creating this tutorial was to make an easy to follow guide of how to use Tumblr.  Our group consisted of Chioma Ihekweazu, Soni Sarin, Mary Rhee, and Gina Stroffolino. Each member of the group contributed various sections to this process manual.

4 1 Introduction  Launched in 2007 in New York and has been rapidly growing ever since.  David Karp, the founder of Tumblr, wanted Tumblr to be set apart from other blogging sites and social networking sites. He wanted users to be able to take the type of information that people shared on long-form blogs but make it as easy to publish as information presented on short-form services like Facebook.  Tumblr users can be of any age, but many Tumblr users are between the ages of 18 and 30.  The purpose is to make an easy to follow guide of how to use Tumblr that explains the following: How to create and set up a Tumblr page How to navigate the website and interact with other Tumblr users. Anyone can use Tumblr  You just need a computer, internet access and an imagination.

Tumblr can be integrated with other sites like Facebook and Twitter. You can automatically import feed (RSS/ATOM) content from other sites as posts on your Tumblr blog. Tumblr has a submission feature that lets anyone on the web contribute to your blog. All Submissions are added to your messages page, where you or other blog member's can approve or deny them. Question posts are also available to let anyone on the web answer a question you have.
