It literally takes seconds to create a Tumblr blog.
A few keystrokes and mouse clicks, and suddenly you’re thrust into a world full of GIFs, memes, and single-serving blogs vying for the Web’s attention. But with 72 million blogs on Tumblr, how do you stand out and develop an audience?
To find out, the Daily Dot turned to a panel of experts who have developed a standard of excellence on Tumblr in regards to original art, GIF animations, Internet culture, and personal branding: Benjamin Grelle (The Frogman), Amanda Brennan (Know Your Meme), Shane Burcaw (Laughing at My Nightmare), Jimmy Repeat and Mark Portillo (Mr. GIF), Christopher Price (Topherchris) and Lee Rubenstein (EatSleepDraw)
