Create an incredible custom Tumblr blog

Tumblr's popularity has grown exponentially year on year - the reason being that it's easy to use, flexible and, when managed correctly, a very powerful platform. Many web designers and developers still look at Tumblr as just a social network or micro-blogging website - one that uses pre-made templates for sharing cute pictures of kittens and memes. But it can be so much more. Today, it hosts 90 million blogs, which generate more than 89 million new posts every day. With numbers like this, it's hard to ignore the possibilities (see our roundup of the best Tumblr blogs to see what can be achieved).

Utilising Tumblr's variables to insert dynamic data, and 'blocks' to conditionally render HTML, we can really push our blog's functionality in fresh directions.
