The Tumblr Queue lets you publish your posts automatically, multiple times per day, between specified hours. This technique helps keep your blog active even when you’re sleeping or otherwise engaged, ensuring that your visitors see a regular stream of activity.

Click the Queue button on the Dashboard sidebar to view the Queue page. At the top of the page are three settings to control the publishing frequency of the queued posts, as shown in Figure 5-3:
