Once one of my clients asked me this question that what is Tumblr and how one can do green awakening with it.
Actually many people take it as an online tool which one can get after paying a subscription fees. This is the big misconception attached with it. You need not to pay a dime and can use it to expand your voice for environmental care.
What is Tumblr?
It is an online sharing platform where you can share your views and images on any topic to promote your message. You can share at it:
- Your views in text format
- Links of the posts published at other websites and blogs
So it is clear now:
Tumblr is a free platform where you can build your own blog for free and share your views, opinions and images on your favorite topic.
Whatever you share on it never disappears and you can update your sharing to keep it floating in your network of friends.
So following are the steps to create your account at Tumblr and then promote green living on it.
Step one: Register
It is as easy as ABC. Simply write www.tumblr.com in your browser and you will get the sign-up page. Put your name, your email and set a password to open your personal account at it.
Step two: Confirm registration
Once you fill the online registration form you will get a link in your inbox to click on it and confirm your registration. So click on it and you will arrive on your profile page at Tumblr.
Step three: Complete Profile
At your profile page upload your image and put other details about you to let others know who you are.

It asks you to set the name of your blog which will be shown as www.tumblr.com/yourblogname. So pick the name that reflects your cause. To promote green living you can name it like www.tumblr.com/greenlivingtips or www.tumblr.com/greenlivingmethods.
