I’ve been asked a couple of times by people new to the tumblr community about how to get more followers. So I decided to put a page up with some tips that have worked for me.
There are a lot of other tips that I’m sure will get you followers, but it all comes down to 3 VERY SIMPLE THINGS -at least for me-:
Be POSITIVE! Nobody wants to excessively read about negative things all day long. The majority of us come to Tumblr looking for support and motivation. I’ve unfollowed some people who had great blogs but consntantly posted about unhappy they were with their lives. I’m unhappy too, sometimes, and it is OK to vent once in a while, but if you do it every 5 minutes, I’m sure you are bound to lose some followers.
BE CREATIVE- With Tumblr premade layouts there’s no much room for creativity in your designs, but you still can do it by posting quality content. My favorite places to find great articles are SparkPeople,WebMed and Livestrong. Always credit the sources. Followers will keep coming back to your blog to see what new things you have added.
KEEP ACTIVE: I do unfollow blogs who have been inactive for 4 weeks and more. I like to keep my dash running. Also, I love promo games, not only to gain more followers to my blog, but also to find more great blogs to follow myself.
If you have other suggestions, feel free to submit them and I’ll gladly add them.
