7 Tumblr Tips for Photographers

By Harrison Jacobs

Tumblr gets a lot of flack from photographers. Like Pinterest, it is seen as the bane of true photographers; a place where images get shared without credit (gasp!). As a social media network, it is one of the most powerful. It boasts over 108 million blogs on every sort of topic imaginable. The reason to be on Tumblr is its highly engaged community. Posts are shared, reblogged, liked and commented on with great frequency.Unlike other blogging platforms that act primarily on the media side of the phrase “social media,” Tumblr throws focuses on the social. For this reason, Tumblr is a great way to build your web presence quickly. For photographers, using Tumblr can get more eyeballs on your website and show potential clients that you are tech and social media savvy.To get started on Tumblr, check out this how-to. Once you’re set up, here are seven tips to help you Tumblr like a pro, while growing your photographic brand.

1. Use Photos
Unsurprisingly, Tumblr is a visual medium. Think of it like a Twitterized version of WordPress. You can share any type of content that you want including text, photos, quotes, links, chat, audio or video. However, the most shared and liked content is photos. According to Dan Zarella at Hubspot, 83 percent of Tumblr posts are photo posts. Are you starting to see why Tumblr is so powerful for photographers? Most users do not create their own content. They share it. And what do they share? Photos. By becoming a content creator and adding your original photographs to the content pool, you are already a leader among Tumblr users. Let’s let Zarella drive this point home. Here are two more findings from his study on Tumblr:

Okay. We know that plants, vegetables, fruits and trees are healthy for the environment, right? We also know that eating most fruits and vegetables can give us great vitamins and minerals to improve our bodies. There’s another thing that people don’t realize about plants. When driving, walking or jogging through a heavily wooded area or an area filled with lots of plants you’ll notice one thing right away – a cooler temperature. However, the most important things about the trees, plants and vegetation, is that they all give off oxygen!! Human’s need oxygen (O2) to survive and plants give us a vital O2 ingredient we need.

Going one step further, humans disperse carbon dioxide (C20), while plants eat it up. They love it. The human-plant connection is a perfect relationship.

So, what does this have to do with social media? A lot! Through social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr, you can build your knowledge of plants and trees and connect with others who are in the same boat as you. Socialize with others who have done some planting and ask questions or comment on what they’re doing. To get you started, here are some links to various social media pages and boards. After you connect with a few people, tell them where you heard about it (from SocialMediaTAB.com) and drop us a comment or email. We would love to hear how you’re doing in the plant world. – Doug Kale
