Hi! I'm Justin Seeley, and I want to welcome you to Up and Running with Tumblr. In this course, we'll look at the basics of using tumblr.com to quickly and easily share your content across the Web. I'll start off by showing you how to register for, and set up your Tumblr account. This includes filling out your profile, naming your blog, and setting up some key preferences.
