34 Amazing Tumblr Themes, Twitter could never look this good!!!

Twitter is the number 1 in the war of the microblogging apps, does it deserve its place there? Maybe. What about the others? Do you remember Tumblr?

Tumblr is still there and still making it easy to share text, photos, URLs, music, and video clips. And just like Twitter you can post a tumblelog from your browser, phone, desktop or via email.

Customization of your Twitter homepage is limited, changing the background and styling the links is about all you will get. With Tumblr, there is a lot more, you can create a sophisticated and unique theme very easily, all you need is a basic knowledge of CSS, and you are good to go… or you can download a theme.

Below you will find 34 55 Amazing Tumblr Themes, Twitter could never look this good!!!

Update:I’ve updated the themes below with some fresh new links! Many of the themes from 2 years ago have now been deleted or moved, and authors aren’t supporting updates. Not only this but I’ve also found new themes from 2010 and 2011 to add. All of the links below are fresh as of April 28, 2011 and offer both install links and demo pages. Now this is a set of Tumblr themes!

    HEY! I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT ALL YOUR TUMBLR THEMES AREN’T AVAILABLE ANYMORE.

  • Paul Andrew

    We are in the throws of updating this post. It should be live soon :)

  • guest

  • Chris

    there all crap. use your own css codes.

  • dre4m3r

    never use anything from the theme garden ! D:

  • Billorly

    much like your spelling. go back to school.

  • Carleeborassi

    i dont know whichone i want

  • Neko

    I don’t like any of them.

  • Orlybill

    His spelling is fine, It’s his grammar and more specifically punctuation which is poor. If you’re going to be a nazi do it properly.

  • I like a few of them, not all though.

  • YOUMADBRO

    His spelling is terrible. If he’s using incorrect grammar by word choice, his spelling is thus just as terrible. Troll properly if you want to troll a troll.

  • LangbeeiN

    fluid is better

  • Those are really boring.

  • Florence Lae Teh

    They’re kind of…just fine to be honest but maybe they just look ordinary.

  • Kaitlynnecaldwell

    If you use incorrect grammar it does not mean your spelling is also incorrect… dumbass.

  • Aiden

    hey i keeep installing the scrible one and then it just disapears? Can you help me?

  • Youdumb

    omg does it really matter?

  • looooool. Tumblr doesn’t make sense.

  • Anonymous

    Gracias, saludos desde Venezuela!

  • October

    Way to appreciate someone else’s hard work, sir.
    Honestly, if you unable to say anything nicely then you’d best not say it at all.

  • Annabell

    I can’t make css codess :( can you help me ? 

  • meow

    these are all the n00b themes

  • Vexiphne

    I’m sorry, but they are all crap. Nothing special about them.

  • Vexiphne

    Is this article about grammar or tumblr themes?

  • yanzifeiwula

    its great, thx so much.

  • Yep, it’s not complicated as other blogging platforms.

  • Victoria
