Today, Tumblr has almost as many users as Wordpress does. The platform has exploded in popularity over the past year and a half, going from 10 to 20 billion posts in six months.

With such a huge user base, Tumblr offers unlimited possibilities for writers, artists, marketers and bloggers. Are you ready to use Tumblr to find your audience?

Reblorg is a Tumblr dedicated to original content creation/publication on Tumblr.

So, if you upload your own art, writing, music, design, etc., you can easily submit it to Reblorg for consideration.

If you create Tumblr themes, check out Reblorg’s Residency Program as well.

Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start. You need to create something of value to build a following.

Ask more of yourself than just reblogging Dr. Who gifs and pictures of shiny things. What are you doing better than anyone else on Tumblr? (Passive consumption of media doesn’t count.) What makes your blog different? Exciting? Interesting? Follow-able?

With Tumblr’s 67 million blogs and counting, you’re going to have to work harder than ever to stand out amidst the fray. The good news is that you have a much wider audience of potential followers than even a year ago.

With its new Storyboard blog, Tumblr is clearly focusing on original content creators. In an interview earlier this year, Tumblr’s Mark Coatney said he wants to “unearth interesting content from citizens in a city of 39 million.”

What’s interesting about your content? What makes it worthwhile?

If you can’t answer these questions, neither can anyone else.
