a couple of tumblr functions if you didn’t know about them:

  • you can make tags on an individual blog display from the earliest to latest post by adding /chrono to the end, for example: http://gameofgifs.tumblr.com/tagged/season_202/chrono
  • you can search through a tumblog by date using “http://username.tumblr.com/day/YEAR/MONTH/DAY”, for example: http://gameofgifs.tumblr.com/day/2012/09/16
  • you can view just the photo posts on your dashboard in mosaic form by going to http://www.tumblr.com/photos
  • you can save ask messages to your queue or drafts by hovering your mouse over the publish button and holding down “alt”, which will bring up alternative options
  • by using the url “http://www.tumblr.com/show/type of post” you can filter your dash, for example “http://www.tumblr.com/show/photos” will show only photos
  • you can retrieve previously used themes via the theme recovery page: http://www.tumblr.com/themes/recover
  • when reblogging a long text post (like this one!), click on the “as” at the top of the post to reblog as a text post, link or quote
