Tumblr, another one of the many free hosted blogging platforms available on the web, announced this week the addition of a fun new feature to their blogs that will certainly interest anyone running a community-driven blog. The new feature, called “Submissions”, will allow your readers to submit posts to the blog.
The feature can be enabled from your Tumblr blog’s “Customize” screen, and each blog owner can customize the submissions form.
With more and more sites accepting reader submitted content, the timing couldn’t have been much better. In the sea of look-a-like blog services, this is definitely a feature that stands out. It shows that the Tumblr people are keeping an eye on new trends, as well as coming up with new innovative ideas.
