30 Awesome Custom Tumblr Blog Designs

Tumblr is such a great micro-blogging and sharing app. It lets you easily write posts and share pictures, videos, quotes and links – all from a hosted dashboard.

Some people prefer self-hosted solutions like WordPress, but others enjoy Tumblr for its ease of use and because it requires almost no maintenance or even hosting fees.

Today we’ll have a look at some of the best custom Tumblr themes out there. Tumblr provides ready-made templates for users, but customizing or creating your own theme is where the magic happens. Let’s see some examples of what can be achieved:
