When it comes to blogging, Tumblr is home to some of the most uniquely focused, off-the-wall and irreverent sites on the Internet. Of course, Tumblr blogs are also full of great writing and viewpoints. That is the glory of Tumblr. One minute, you’ll be mining through pages and pages of GIFs, and the next you’ll be reading an insightful argument about any topic you can imagine.
With such unique qualities, it’s no wonder that Tumblr themes mirror that diversity. Whether you want to showcase large, high-resolution photos or your own personal writing, there is a free Tumblr theme out there that will help make your blog look perfect. But if you truly want your blog to be eye-candy, you can consult the services of a blog designer.
