What Tumblr Is and How To Use It: A Practical Guide

Tumblr queueHow To Schedule Auto-Posting At Regular Intervals (Tumblr Queue)

Because Tumblr makes posting or reblogging links, images, and more so fast and easy, it’s easy to overwhelm your Tumblr followers. Try spacing out posts with the queue feature, which allows users to stagger posts over hours or days.

  1. In the upper right corner of the Create Posts page, click the drop-down menu and choose Add to Queue instead of Publish Now.
  2. Set post timing and parameters on the Queue page. Finding this is twisty. Go to your Dashboard, click the name of your Tumblr blog on the top, then click Queue on the right sidebar. Or you can go to www.tumblr.com/tumblelog/[your blog handle here]/queue.
  3. From here you can set number of posts per day and the hours when posts can go live.
  4. You can also view items that haven’t gone live yet and change the order queued items go live by dragging individual posts to new positions on the page.

    Some of Tumblr’s templates look really amazing… That was about the only thing I liked about it. I just didn’t see clear advantages over other services like Blogger.
