In this tutorial, I'll be going through the basics of setting up a Tumblr blog. There's a lot of different ways to get started blogging - the choices available to you are actually quite mindboggling. But if you're looking for an extremely simple way to start a blog, or if you're just interested in consolidating the content you post from other sources, Tumblr is an easy to use platform to handle it.

In this video, I'll cover signing up, creating a post, customizing your blog, creating pages, and using Google Analytics with your blog.

UPDATE 6/11/11: As of June 2011, the importing feeds function is no longer supported by Tumblr, so you will not see the Services menu in your customize screen.
