Tumblr dubs itself "the easiest way to blog." To fulfill this slogan, Tumblr simplifies the process of formatting blog posts. The Add a Text Post page -- the place where you create blog entries -- contains a rich text editor that makes bolding words and adding lines through text a matter of clicking a button.
