The Pro Tumblr Theming eBook
At Web-Crunch we are into trying new things. Our goal is to deliver quality content that is both useful and fun to read or watch. This week I am excited to announce the launching a new eBook titled Pro Tumblr Theming that will be a part of many future eBooks, resources, and more.
The book is a result of a blog post I wrote for another site about two years ago already. From that single blog post, I received over 40 inquiries from users around the world to help to customize their own Tumblr themes.
Some inquiries were consultant-based while others were full-blown Tumblr theme builds. My experience just goes to show how truly powerful blogging can be.
I learned a lot by seeing step-by-step tutorials when I first started building websites. I think doing things the old fashion way is a great way to learn and then build upon later when you are more comfortable. There were a lot of goals for the project. To summarize, I included the most prominent ones below.
- Spread awareness of the theme customization process
- Get newcomers up and running fast without needing to hire someone else
- Familiarize readers with the Tumblr-specific markup that makes Tumblr be Tumblr
- Build a theme from scratch so readers can see every step of the process
- After reading the book a reader will now be able to take a stab at creating their own custom Tumblr theme.
It’s free. I decided to offer this for free as I think it will help many people who are interested in customizing their own Tumblr experience. Rather than being in the dark about the process, I wanted to share it so others could benefit and I don’t think to charge someone for information that is already available is right. I’m merely trying to explain it in a way that makes more sense.
When will it be ready?
That’s a very good question. A lot of work has already been completed. Since I am doing this step-by-step, it could take some time. I’m hoping to be completed by Late 2015 or early 2016.
I invite you to lend me your email over on the Pro Tumblr Theming eBook landing page so I can notify you when the book is ready. I’ll send updates to keep you in the loop of milestones for the eBook.
