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 to quickly and easily share your content across the Web.

Next we'll dive into the Tumblr blocks, so that you're familiar with all of the different types of content that Tumblr has to offer.
