    It's not as fast as before but this is the best I can do. If you've got a better method, please share!

    Tumblr recently made some changes to its Notes interface which makes it difficult to follow a lot of people at once. However, you can still do it though not as efficiently before. Here's my method:


    Step 1: Open 2 Tumblr windows in the same screen. One window should go to http://tumblr.com/following and the other should go to the Post you want to target with its notes opened up (like I've shown in the video.)


    Step 2: In the right window, right click on the person you want to follow, copy their URL.


    Step 3: Go to the left window and paste (Ctrl-V on Windows and Linux) into the field at the top and click Follow.


    Step 4: Monitor your Following count.. when it gets to 200 (or what ever your target is for the day, stop.)

    It's not that complicated once you start doing this with a few target blogs and start speeding it up once you've got a rhythm. Just place the windows in the configuration in the video, copy the blog URLs, paste them into the Follow field and click follow, rinse and repeat.

    If you have 50 blogs and want all of them to follow 200 people a day this would get pretty bad.

    By bad do you mean it will become effective or only fade?

    It would've been pretty bad even under the old interface. If you got 50 blogs following 200 ppl a day, a bot is the only feasible means.. and you probably can program a bot to do what I've shown here (in theory.)

    Bad as in time consuming.
    Yes I agree. I don't understand why everyone doesn't do their niche in high volume... more blogs would simple mean more money

    Are you saying that Tumbling jazz wastes proxies that refuse to work? If you have a problem with the software, do contact the support forum as opposed to posting it on BHW where you are unlikely to get it sorted. Or if you want to post it to BHW for whatever reason, do post it aswell on the tumjazz support forum

    Yeah, but it takes time for that to appear especially on a slow computer or connection.. a few seconds more. Multiply those few seconds by 200 and you're losing some serious time.
