    I am not exactly new to Tumblr. I have been making and updating blogs, earned a little money and then got my blogs banned. I did everything manually, so it was really time consuming and was almost impossible to manage many blogs

    Then I bought PRTB worked a bit and abandoned it altogether.

    So this will be a fresh start. And I am only making this thread because I have made 20 nsfw blogs and updated 4 of them; therefore I can say I have done something today.

    For now I am focusing only on building followers.

    I set the goal so small at 10/day because that has to be achievable.
    My niches are not laser targeted micro niches, but rather general niches.

    Day 1


    1. Made 20 blogs, added themes, avatars, logos etc.
    2. Updated 4 with posts and queued about 50 pics per blog (I know I should queue about 100-200 per blog)
    3. Scraped some good looking tumbr blogs for pics.

    I have a dynamic IP so I cannot fully utilize PRTB, the las time I tried tumblr I had a batch script to change IPs.

    Day 2

    So yesterday was day 2 and I added another blog to PRTB.
    I have started gaining followers on 3 blogs and I got 108 followers on one blog overnight!! As amazing as it sounds many of them could be internet marketers.

    Another thing I should mention is that two of the blogs aren't getting any likes or followers.

    This is the blog I told about and it's top post has 20 notes

    Another interesting fact is on a blog I made earlier in January I had posted a banner ad from a cam site, actually it was a tiny ad image without the code. I saw that it had gained 150+ notes, as far as I can remember. I just wish I had lined it to an offer, sadly was only a test post but I am really happy it worked better than most of the stuff I post.

    Good luck. Getting followers is nice, but the metric is insignificant. It's much more important to post content that will be reblogged with backlinks to your tumblr. That is what will get you the most organic traffic for search engines at a later point.

    Thank for the replys guys.
    @Nermin : you can start right away bro. Don't overthink it. Take action.

    @Infornasian : I am going to add google analytics to my tumblrs to get a better understanding of the visits

    Update : PRTB failed to update most of the blogs. For the record I am uploding images via URL. Maybe something is wrong with tumblr or the PRTB itself. However I could post to blogs manually.

    At the moment they all are. But I am hoping to add more sfw niches such as food etc. in the near future.

    Currently I am struggling with blogs because my tumblr sofware is not posting images to tumblr. It only posts for one blog. However the other blogs aren't banned either.

    I feel I am being unproductive and losing interest! - happens to me all the time.

    Tumblr bot started working again (I still don't know what happened though)

    My accounts are growing and I am thinking of start monetizing them starting next month.

    It is hard to find good contents for some niches, specially when what I do is scrape other blogs and direy blog. eg. if my nicctly post their images on mhe is "cars" some times i end up posting "donkeys" One of my followers who reblogged an image added a comment just to mention what I post is not what I promised.

    Take a look through my threads, I posted an automation method for tumblr. You may find it useful.
    Stick it with, the money will come

    Day 40 and still haven't done shit!


    This is the problem with me. I just give up. This time I am going to keep updating the thread anyway. Even if I don't do anything.

    For starters I have 5 blogs I made last week, when I actually started working again. So I have around 25 blogs I guess. If I would only spend 2 hours a day updating and posting, I definetely make $10 in two months at least. Heck I even set the goal so low knowing that it would be attainable.

    Action action action.

    Thank you infoasian for the PM. Otherwise I wouldn't have posted this either.

    What I have is PRTB (discontinued)
    IMHO tublingjazz by rootjazz (a member here) is a all in one solution.

    I don't think you need to use bots to grow quality tumblr accounts. One or two posts per day are sufficient to make an impact with good content. Make sure you post during busy times and concentrate on 3 or 4 tumblrs at a time would be my advise. Once you have grown them to decent size, start smaller sub-niche tumblers and reblog their posts on your older blogs.

    I suggest using Zennoposter to automate all your activities. It's easy to control. Btw is humour niche works best with tumblr (especially gif image)?

    My hard disk stopped working last week and when I replace it the network card gave up! I can't believe this shit happens to me only when I am working. Good thing I saved all of my Tumblr data on dropbox otherwise my accounts too would have been lost.
