Tumblr is a great and easy to use tool, but is missing some features that would make using it much easier. Luckily, there are browser add-ons and other goodies which add that functionality and solve just about every issue you may be having.
Extra Browser Features
While there are a few single add-ons you can use for Tumblr, there is one that offers a host of them in one download. Called Missing E, it makes creating new posts easy, allows you to track your followers and unfollowers, and includes a bookmarking function.
The Tumblr dashboard will give you a good overview of the posts of people you follow as well as your own posts and replies. But to get a better look at your own activity and that of your posts, the Tumblelog is your best best. You can get there by looking at the top of your Dashboard and clicking your blog name.
Keeping Long Posts Long
Tumblr will often truncate the original text of long posts, forcing users to click the heading-turned-link in order to read the rest of the post. Unfortunately, this may reduce the number of people who actually read the post. But you can keep your posts at their original length by switching the mode. Do this by looking to the “Reblog Text Post”, and clicking the “As” button beside it. Choose “As Text” to keep your post long.
