How to Submit Pictures on Tumblr

Most blogs on Tumblr have a single author or a small group of approved writers, but some thrive on user submissions, aggregating writing, photos and other content from loyal fans. Not every blog that takes submissions accepts every type of media, and there's no guarantee the blog owner will post your submission, but both the Tumblr app and Tumblr website provide an avenue for sending your pictures.

Tumblr App

Step

Visit the blog you want to submit to, tap the mail icon and choose Submit. If you don't see the Submit option, or if there's no mail icon, the blog does not take submissions.
