Tumblr is supposed to be so easy... Am I doing it right?
I don't know why I find it to be such a confusing and illogical interface, but I do. Maybe I just don't get it? I was hoping someone could help me understand some of the things I don't understand about it. Firstly, I don't understand why, in order to "favorite" or "reblog" something, I have to find wherever that person's specific "button" (which can be customized, making it more confusing) is to get to the notes of the post, then I have to click favorite and/or reblog, then I have to hit the back button on my browser? That seems really labor-and-time intensive to be the real way to do it. Am I missing something or is this really how one favorites or reblogs things on tumblr?
Secondly, I am seeking tips on how to gain followers when blogging about a pretty (but not completely) narrow subject matter. Am I right to think that a lot of it probably comes from effectively tagging ones content?
