    Agree with them clamping down - when it was first opened you could follow thousands of people a day etc, now its a max of 200 so following people isn't as easy any more.

    I have made a few bots to make things easier on Tumblr and they are always evolving as Tumblr get more and more clever.....

    They also have a pretty easy to use API, and as gromhold said you could use zennoposter (glad i own the PRO version of this).
    Now the question comes up: how the hell do you monetize a tumblr?
    And how do you even get traffic?
    I mean, will reblogging do anything?
    Or will liking do anything?
    The thing i have noticed is if you reblog anything (does the user have to approve?) the link to your blog is a FOLLOW link.

    sooo if you find URLs that arent on tumblr or its subdomains (you know, you can use your own domains for tumblr) you can basically get a backlink with anchor to your blog...
    Any other ideas?
