This time: setting up your tumblr!! deciding whether you want a tumblr account, usernames, primary blogs vs sideblogs, themes, and settings.

This post gets into a lot of the nitty-gritty of how to fine-tune the look of your blog and your privacy and communication settings. If you're not interested in those details (which is fine - you don't need to understand it all to use tumblr) stick to questions 1-2 and 13-15, and come back next time for more about how to find the content you want and the blogs you want to follow.

1. Do I want a tumblr account? )

Q2-4. How do I pick and manage usernames? (image-heavy) )

Q5-8. What are primary blogs and sideblogs, and how are they different? )

Q9-11. How do I change and choose my tumblr's appearance? (image-heavy) )Q12. What settings should I be aware of? )

Q13-15. What are tumblr savior and xkit, and why do I want them? (image-heavy) )

As always, questions welcome!
