About this project

I'm a big fan of the blogging platform tumblr, building apps and themes for tumblr's massive user base. My tumblr work has been used by nearly 1-million tumblr users and highlighted on Huffington Post.

Javascript, jQuery, HTML5, CSS3, tumblr API, PHP, MySQL, Google Chart API

My Role

What started as making simple themes for friends and personal projects turned into a collection of highly customizable themes for the tumblr community. Tumblr as a platform is very simple and lacks features older blogging platforms offer. I wrote apps to address these deficiencies.

Tumblr Theme

A theme designed for power users of tumblr. Heavily customizable layout allows for one to four columns and room for an advertisement or promo slot. Exclusive to this theme is the "Related Posts" widget that uses the post tags and likes to determine similar content. My "Popular Posts" widget for tumblr is baked in, letting bloggers showcase their best content first.

The Best of Tumblr

Tumblr Tools

Inspired by those "end of the year" roundups, I wrote a simple tool that grabs all the posts for a blog by year and month, sorted by popularity. The tool is pretty popular among tumblr users, with over 300,000+ unique tumblr accounts analyzed. It was also highlighted on Huffington Post.

Simple Stats and Analysis

Tumblr Tools

Frustrated with the lack of interaction analytics, I built the Simple Tumble Stats tool. Using the tumblr API, it scans recent posts for any given blog and returns information on the most engaged users, frequency of posts, etc...
