It’s now super easy to add a “Share on Tumblr” button to any site.
Adding the basic Tumblr Button couldn’t be simpler. Just cut and paste the code and you’ll be off running. But the advanced options are where it gets interesting…
The Tumblr Button can give you complete control over how your content appears when shared on Tumblr. Not only does this mean specifying an excerpt or summary, but also deciding whether it appears as a Link, Quote, Photo, or Video Embed.
Even better: This can be deeply integrated with just about any publishing platform to add contextual buttons next to things like paragraphs or photos. Check out these examples.
The appearance of the button is also completely customizable.

The Tumblr Backup app is ready for beta testing!
Download (Mac OS X, requires 10.5 or higher)
Unlike other publishing sites’ approach to backups, our goal was to create a useful copy of your blog’s content that can be viewed on any computer, burned to a CD, or hosted as an archive of static HTML files.
Wherever possible, we use simple file formats. Our backup structure is optimized for Mac OS X’s Spotlight for searching and Quick Look for browsing, and we’ll try to use the same structure and achieve the same benefits on other platforms.
Release notes:
Sorry, there’s no Windows version yet.
The output is minimally styled in a plain theme to ensure complete backups, zero external requirements, and a consistent data structure. Custom theme code is included in the backup as a separate file.
To view the backup in a browser, open the index.html file.
Photosets are not yet fully downloaded.
The following are not backed up:        
Private tumblelogs
Submissions
Notes
Feed-imported posts
Audio files from reblogged posts

You can launch the app every few days and re-run the backup in the same place, and it effectively performs an incremental media backup: image and audio files are only re-downloaded if they don’t already exist in the target folder. Text content and post data are re-downloaded in full every time.
If you have private posts, be careful if you make the backup publicly available. Private posts are included in a private folder, and their images or audio files are included in the standard images and audio folders.
Are you a programmer? Each post’s XML data, as specified by our API, is embedded inside an easily-parsed-out HTML comment in each post’s HTML file, in case you want to do anything cool with it.

Gnome Life is the story of a gnome who bravely ventures out into the real world in search of adventure. The first stop on his journey: New York City. This curious little guy has already found a spot in Central Park that reminds him of home, but he still has to fight the constant urge to hide. Peering through holes and cracks, watching us humans move to and fro — this is where he feels the most secure. While no other dwarves are to be found in Manhattan’s underground caves, he’s finally starting to free himself from the cynicism felt by all the other gnomes back home at the garden.
