How To Get Featured on Tumblr Radar

What Is Tumblr Radar?.

Tumblr Radar is a daily editorial post review (by Tumblr’s staff ) that features a post, usually a photo post of a Tumblelog that has already some popularity and with an above-the-average post quality, is this automatic and they just approve them? I don’t know.  So if you were wondering, can I submit my post to Tumblr Radar? The answer is clearly no.  Something else, Tumblr Radar is now in your dashboard’s sidebar, but it used to have its own page at , Then they took it away, so it’s gone just like Tumblarity.

How To Get Featured on Tumblr Radar.

These are not pre-requisites you can aquire overnight, so if you don’t have them, it’s highly unlikely you will get featured on Tumblr Radar.

  • If you don’t have the above item, you should stand out for something very important, clever or unique.

    You forgot to mention that you sometimes have to know someone at Tumblr. Twice today I saw people who are friends with Tumblr staff in the Tumblr radar. It annoyed me to the point I went searching for a Chrome extension to block the radar.

    I see things on there that are not very good or interesting. I’ve had posts get several hundred notes and was better than a picture of someones dog(which is currently on there, not even a cute dog). It’s just something that annoys me because you can’t get away from it. They show it on your posts page instead of just the home page. I hate it.

    That’s not necessarily true though, some people who has been on the radar used to have less than 100 notes on their posts before they actually were shown on the radar, and thats not too much.
