What makes Tumblr so unique is the fact you have all these different content…types that you're able to add to it.…Some of them are really in-depth, and really rich, like photos, and video, and…audio, but some of them are unique, like quotations, and that's what we are going…to be covering in this movie: the quote feature.…In order to access that from your Dashboard, simply click the Quote block.…Once you do that, you will see that the publishing interface for quotes is very, very simple.…You add the quote, you add the source, and then you create the post; pretty simple.…
You'll notice that on the quote itself, you don't get any styling options.…That's because the quotes are styled based upon the theme's appearance.…So based upon what theme you have, your quote will look different each and every time.…Underneath, the source: you can style that, just like you can a regular text post.…So in this case, I will type out my quote, and then I will type out my source.…So for the top part here, I will type out: Stay hungry, Stay foolish.…
