Publish content to Tumblr

Tumblr is a very customizable platform which allows you to add a unique look to your blog by changing the entire theme of your page. It is a great way to extend reach and brand awareness by sharing all kinds of great content without going through the hassle of hosting your own website.

You can publish great text and image posts to your Tumblr blog directly from Falcon. This guide will describe how you can bring your first Tumblr blog post live via Falcon.
