Downloading songs from Tumblr is a snap with Firefox!
- Download the Greasemonkey addon, which lets you install third-party scripts to customize the way you view webpages.
- Install Tumtaster (the script used for downloading mp3s from tumblr).
That’s it! The script adds a download button right under the music player displayed on tumblr, that allows you to easily download any songs tumblrs post. Downloading the mp3 is a 2 click process, right-click on the download button and select ‘Save Link As’.
Downloading mp3’s from tumblr is even easier with Google Chrome because installing Greasemonkey isn’t even necessary!
For IE and Safari users, you can try reading this guide to make Greasemonkey/Tumtaster work, or you can just use a better browser, which is what I recommend.
I think kids today (and people in general) put far too much of themselves on the internet. They are too quick to tell you where they work, what school they go to and show you pictures of their face from every angle. Such behavior can be dangerous, not only are you practically inviting creeps to stalk you irl but you are giving them all the tools they need to track you. Not to mention everything you do on the internet is saved forever and can always be used against you in the future, sound paranoid? Sorry, it is just a fact.
You can be yourself without giving away all the details of your life, trust me, I do it just fine. Be safe, if you use Facebook please set your profile to private, protecting yourself just a little bit can go a long way. You wouldn’t trust a random stranger on the street with your personal information so don’t trust random internet crawlers with it either.
Step one: Make a tumblr blog and then theme it with a decent theme (note: you can skip steps 2 onward if you know how to make your own wicked cool theme and promote it).
Step two: Learn how to make animated gif’s.
Step three: Make lots of animated gif’s and post them all the time.
Step four: Post the url to your ask box a couple times a day and then answer totally random questions from your followers.
Step Five: Reblog other gif makers so the word gets out that you’re cool. Wait for your follower count to rise to the skies.
Here are a couple tumblrs that have done just that:
Sure there are other ways to become tumblr famous, you can create epic youtube videos and hope they take off and what not but creating gif’s is the easiest way I know to climb the ladder fast!

Stumbling on the go! How fantastic is THAT! Now you can whip out your smart phone and check your shares, reply to friends and click the stumble button for the all around boredom cure!
This free app allows you to thumb up sites you like and share them with your friends, even while on a long road trip with that friend that never shuts up! I whip out my droid and stumble in parking lots waiting for habitually late people and am no longer irritated about having to wait an extra 15min from the time I was instructed to be there. Doctor office waiting rooms are no longer hell on earth… Thank you Stumble app… thank you so much!
“Stay tuned for future updates to this app coming soon, like the ability to see the number of shares you have waiting right beside your text message and email notifications, the ability to find new Stumblers to follow, and more! (And for those of you using a web-enabled mobile device other than an iPhone or an Android phone, we’re investigating StumbleUpon app possibilities for other mobile operating systems. We’ll update our blog with any developments on that front!)”
Oh I’ll be staying tuned all right, from my phone!!!
There is also an app for ipad users.
I would have loved to have been there to pick his brain! I was a little disappointed at how lame some of the questions from the audience were. Some people were just asking for small business advice and stuff and I was like “meh go google it newb” but Garrett was of course very friendly and dished out tidbits of advice to those who asked. He talked about how exactly StumbleUpon makes its revenue which I know has been a long time curiosity of many active and nosy users!
Melanie Wells who conducted the interview dissed on Garrett’s clothes which was meant to be funny I guess? It came off as rude from my perspective though, she was obviously jealous that Garrett went straight from college to creating and running StumbleUpon, I thought she was going to swallow her own face when he mentioned how during the period that eBay owned SU he experienced “having a boss for the first time” since he had “never had a job before”. Melanie was obviously a little bit elitist and ended up totally coming off like she thought she was too good to be doing that interview or something which kind of cracked me up because it just made Garrett seem even more charming when he took her grainy personality with a smile. Good job Garrett.
StumbleUpon is throwing a huge party to celebrate getting their 10 millionth user and they want you to come! There will be drinks and Dj’s and a chance to win one of 5 iPads! SU really knows how to throw a party so don’t miss out! RSVP with Facebook and put your party hat on!
