arrow Adding Tumblr share buttons to a non-Tumblr site

Tumblr is a highly interactive blogging platform where users are encouraged to follow one another based on friendships and similar interests. In addition to following the blogs that interest you, you can like (that is, click an option that says you like) individual posts and reblog the posts that you want to share with your blog’s followers. What’s more, if you happen to have a non-Tumblr site, you can promote that content to Tumblr users by adding Tumblr share buttons to your pages. This chapter is designed to show you what you need to know about following and followers, as well as liking posts, reblogging posts, and promoting content outside of Tumblr to Tumblr users.
