Keep in Mind

Now that you are all set up and ready to start blogging, here are a few other things to keep in mind.


About Your Blog...

We recommend that bloggers use the Optica theme. It's sharp and flexible: you can choose between a one-column or grid layout.

For Tumblr Veterans...

If you have a personal Tumblr blog before joining THIS IS NYU, you may choose to create a secondary blog. This way, you can add a blog to your current account and have one username and password to access both easily. Having a separate blog gives you more privacy for personal posts.


Respect Copyright Laws...

The content and images you post should be your own. When they are not, please provide the source or an attribution and confirm you have permission to republish their work.


Share Your Instagram Photos...

If you're great on Instagram, you can connect your accounts so it's easy to share your photos straight to your blog. (You'll be able to choose which images are shared.)


Think Before You Post...

The content on your blog is public; always remember that and be smart about the content you publish.
