7 Ways To Get More Followers On Tumblr That Actually Works

Quickly reblog a post


You can quickly reblog a post without even using your mouse or touchpad/trackpad. Just hit Shift + R.

Note: Works only when you use keyboard shortcuts J and K to navigate.

Quickly add a post to your Queue


One thing I love about tumblr is using the queue functionality. It helps me keep my tumblr updated even during busy days. Say, you just posted 10 photos of your cat and you found another photo of a cat you want to reblog, but you don’t want to flood your followers dashboard with similar photos to piss them off (or do you? cats are adorable). You may want to add it to your queue to automatically post it later. Just hit Shift + E and you are good to go! Reblog with timer icon will be highlighted.

Quickly switch between your Dashboard and your Blogs


You have several blogs under your account? I do too! You can quickly switch between them with key combo Z + Tab. A neat pop up will appear with your tumblog’s icons. Keep holding Z and press Tab repeatedly until the tumblog you want to switch to is highlighted.

Quickly play a video


So your scrolling and scrolling until suddenly a wild cat video licking a green lollipop appeard. Just hit the Enter key to play.

    My story is similar to yours. I fall in love, and often too hard. But not all relationship is an easy street. If you are lucky, you will have a hand to hold along the way but in some path you will need to take it alone. It's about taking all the lesson in every failed one.
