Creating Your First Post
In This Chapter
Looking at the general posting and formatting options
Posting text, photos, quotes, links, chats, audio files, and videos
There are seven kinds of posts that you can create with Tumblr: text, photo, quote, link, chat, audio, and video. Each post type has its own distinct form that you fill in to create a new post. Alongside each form, you see a list of general posting options. These options are the same regardless of post type, and you can fill them in on the fly each time you create new post. In addition, many of the new post forms share a common formatting toolbar.
In this chapter, you find about all the general posting and formatting options, followed by step-by-step instructions for creating each post type.
