    I have a question for you: Will you be my Tumblr guide?! Please?

    I don't want to derail your other thread but I have questions since I'm a newb to Tumblr. Right now I'm trying to add a title and description. It's not new. I know my blog will be just like all the other ones out there. But I don't know the lingo or ways of the land yet. And tips or advice?

    Things I know I will post about: Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Supernatural, probably Marvel comic book stuff, Merlin, Star Trek, etc.etc.

    Yeah..

    Trying to figure out what to name it. I finally found out how.

    Also can you explain pages for me? Below where I changed the tile and description, it has a place where I can add pages.

    Ok, it depends on what kind of page you want to make. The standard layout option is good for a whole new page with different content that you can add. Most blogs use this for they're About Me page or My Story or something. The redirect option is good if you want some of your posts to show up on that page as like a themed page. I have a redirect page called 'me' so any of my pictures I have tagged with #me will show up on that page, and nothing else.

    So +add a page, choose what type, a title, and what you want the url to be (like blogname.tumblr.com/aboutme), and yes to show a link on page.

    Ah Ok. So the About Me section isn't already there, I have to add it? I'm pretty sure I won't be adding anything personal like my own photos. haha I think this will strictly be a fandom thing for me and my thoughts about it all.. But say I wanted a separate Harry Potter one, separate Doctor Who page, I can add them there?

    Yes! For that i would probably do redirect pages. So you have your blog and then under your description, different pages called 'harry potter', 'doctor who', etc and then clicking on one of those brings up only your posts tagged with that, like #doctorwho for example. Is this making any sense lol

    Ummm a little. A redirect sounds better anyway since a lot of this overlaps with each other. But how do I add the redirect pages? Where do I add those hashtags?

    Under customize, add a page, then where it says use standard layout that should be a dropdown menu with redirect as one of the other options.

    When a post a picture, or reblog one, there will be a box called tags underneath the picture. Then you just enter what you want to tag it with, post it, it will show on your blog and a redirect page.

    If you forget to tag one, you can click on one of your posts and edit it to add the tag.

    It takes a lot of trial and error! Sometimes you can find youtube tutorials on tumblr customizations too which would probably be more helpful to actually see it.
