After choosing the categories that you like, you will be directed to a home screen that will provide you with posts that are based on your chosen topics. You can follow the people whose posts you like to remain updated about their future content and also like, share, comment and reblog their posts.
This blogging app offers you the chance to create posts in a number of ways. To create a post in Tumblr, you simply have to click on the pen icon that is located on the bottom-right corner of the screen. This will open up a window on which all the methods that can be used for creating posts are listed. These methods include Text, Video, Audio, Chat, Link, GIF, Quote, and Photo.
