Tumblr for Beginners, Part 3

Meow, glad to see you, let me show you
how to do a tumblr collage post
just like the one below.



First, you need to have your images and links ready, so
my mom helped me picked out 8 pretty things.


We got three things from every listing,
1) the image
2) listing link
3) shop name

This is our list,

Once you have the list, the rest is simple,
you click photo in dashboard and get this window.


Keep clicking ( add another photo) until you have
all the photo loaded, add a source link,
we chose the imteam account's favorites
as our page link for this collage.
we then added all the shop names under tags,
clicked save and there you have it.

Mom liked my collage so much, she reblogged

This concludes the tumblr for beginners 3 part series,
if you have any question, like how to post a treasury on tumblr
or how to do a text post, ask away and I'll try my best to help you.
Happy Tumblring !
Miki Cat.
p.s. here's part 1 and part 2

Tumblr for Beginners, Part 2

Okay, now that you have your Tumblr account all set up,
let me show you how to do an image post, well, actually,
this exact post, looks like I made a good choice, it's been
reblogged 31 times in the last hour !!


First, go to your Dashboard, click photo.


this box will appear, you can either use "choose photo"
or " use a URL instead", I picked the URL option.


This is Yael/ The JoyofColor's pretty bunny drawing,
so I'm on her bunny drawing page and got the URL of the image.




I then added the caption - Rabbit all over fun illustration -
It's always nice to find Yael's page from tumblr so I added a link
of her pretty buns page to the caption, don't forget to set the target
to open in a new window, the same link also goes to the content source
link, which is third down from the top on the side bar.

I added a link to Yael's shop as well, you can never have
too many links !!!


We are almost done, just need to add the tags,
I found them on Yael's drawing page under details.
Hit " create post" and we are done !


This is how it looks on my dashboard !



This is how it looks on my blog !


My Mum liked this post so she hearted and
reblogged Yael's pretty buns on the IMteam blog.


Next time, I'll show you how to do a collage !!
bye for now,
xo

Tumblr Start Your Spring with Mikicat

Doing the TumBlr with Miki Cat

This is a 2 part tutorial on how to TUMBLR
Forgive me if you find my process to be a tad tedious,
remember, I'm just a little cat !

First, Sign up at
The screen looks exactly like the one in front of me,
enter your email address, a new password for this site and
for URL, enter a name for your tumblr account, not to worry,
you can change that later if you want.

so my tumblr page is kilmofsky.tumblr.com
let me show you how to got there.
Ah, you will need to go through the email verification, you know the routine.

This is the next screen, tumblr calls it dashboard, like it says,
I need to pick an avatar first by uploading a nice pic. of myself.
if you click on the head on top left, you'll get there too.
so go ahead, upload a pretty picture of yourself.


you'll see this blog setting page, lots of other stuff to decide,
feel free to ignore it until later, I did.
whatever you choose, remember to click save at the bottom.

Now the fun part, you get to pick your theme for the blog.
I don't have much allowance, so I go for the free themes.
My dad always said to keep it simple, so I do.
I picked the minimalist and I click use then save, (top left)
Go click on all the themes and see what you like.
Just remember, you can change it later or do a custom background,
I would like to see some raw chicken necks, but I digress.


Oh wait, before you save,
you need to give your blog a title, I called mine
10 Needles, cause that's how many shots I got
when I went to the vet, believe it or not !
So add your title and description and then click save.


Now, remember it said in step 3, follow at least 5 people,
I know how, just click Explore Tumblr on the dashboard.
Find the cats, I meant blogs, I like, click follow !

so now you have a title, a description and a blank page,
I'm too tired to show you how to upload an image, so instead,
let me show you how to reblog, which is the fastest way
to put an image on your blog without doing too much.

I went to my Mom's blog, found the silly dog with the hat,
click on the heart, I did it out of politeness, I don't really heart
the dog, then I click reblog.


this box shows up and all I do now is click reblog.
this is now on my blog. Too bad she doesn't have my
picture up, it would look much nicer. Oh well !

Feel free to follow me on Tumblr, except
I don't get too much computer time so
there probably won't be much to look at.

If you already have a tumblr account, skip this and

bye for now.
yours truly
MIki the Cat.
