Tumblr is a popular micro blogging platform where people can make small posts, share links and images with others, reblog the posts of others, etc. It is a platform that sort of combines the features of a blog with social networking.

Tumblr is a great tool but ultimately it is only a micro blogging tool which means it sets limits on the data that you can upload. But maybe you have fallen in love with its design and you want to use the same kind of template on your “real” blog where you can do whatever you want without any limits or foundations. Tumblog is what you need.

What is a tumblog? To keep pace with cutting edge technology designers are designing themes that when installed and run on a blog make it look like a Tumblr blog. These themes are known as tumblogs. This “tumblog” should not be confused with “tumblelog”. The latter word was used to denote the first micro blogs.
