Professional Portfolio Themes for Tumblr

The social media and blogging community Tumblr has for a long time been a good place for creatives of all types – artists, designers, illustrators, and more – to post works and find inspiration from others. With about 60 billion posts and 140 million blogs, there is no discounting that Tumblr has become a force to be reckoned with.

Why do many creative types prefer Tumblr over other blogging platforms?

  1. It’s free! This is especially advantageous for those who do not have the time or money to spend in a hosted blog.

  2. Easy to post! Posts can be simply an image, link, short message, quotes, audio or video. A little tip though – posts with a combination of images and text tend to get shared more.

  3. Reblogging – Reblogging is a popular feature of Tumblr which allows users to easily share other’s posts by simply clicking the “Reblog” button. This is especially useful for designers, artists, photographers, and illustrators as works sometimes get reblogged hundreds of times. There is always a chance that posts will go viral.

  4. Several free and professional premium themes available. Well, there is no shortage of free Tumblr themes on the internet. These are great to begin with, and I have featured a few in the past here – Free Tumblr Themes, but if you want a professional presence, a premium Tumblr theme is the way to go. Most are actually very cheap, and are worth the small investment.
