Did You Know You Can Share Your Sets and Items to Tumblr?

Share What You Love to Tumblr!

Polyvore sets look so beautiful on Tumblr -- that's why it is one of our favorite platforms! So, when it came to building our site and app, making it easy to share to Tumblr was a definite priority. With a click of a button, you can post your sets and items onto the platform and start collecting notes ASAP. It's almost too easy. Here are a few ways you can post to Tumblr:

  • Connect your account
    • Go to your username in the top right corner of the page and click "Settings." Then, go to the "Sharing" tab and click "Connect Account." Last, enter the login information for your Tumblr. 
  • Share a set while publishing 
    • To post a set automatically to your Tumblr, make sure that the "Quick share with friends" option is checked when publishing. 
  • Or, share sets after publishing
    • Click the "Tumblr" button located above the set on the set page to share it after publishing.
  • Share an item
    • Click on an item to go to the item page. Click the "Post to Tumblr" button above the item. 

From Our App
  • Connect your account
    • Go to the "Me" tab on the bottom left of the app screen. Click the "Profile" tab on the top right. Scroll down to "Sharing settings" and turn on Tumblr sharing. 
  • Share a set while publishing 
    • After clicking publish, turn on "Share this set." Select Tumblr at the prompt. 
  • Or, share sets after publishing 
    • Click on the set you'd like to share. Click the "Share" button. Select Tumblr. 
  • Share an item
    • Click on the item you'd like to share. Click the "Share" button. Select Tumblr. 

We're super excited to have given our own Tumblr a makeover so we can see all the things you've already shared! One blogger in particular, DisneyBound (leslieakay on Polyvore), stood out not only because of her crazy high set views, but also because of her unique set style -- all Disney-inspired. 

Q&A with DisneyBound

Q. Can you tell us a little about yourself?
A. I'm the blogger behind the quirky fashion blog DisneyBound - DisneyBounding is when you use clothes which you can find in your own closet or at your local mall to create outfits based off of your favorite Disney characters. A subtle form of dress up. I began doing theses looks because adults aren't allowed to wear costumes into Disney parks - this allowed them to dress up while still complying with Disney guidelines. It's since gone viral and has created a very large and fun community - and now allows me to get to work with The Walk Disney Company. 

Q. How long have you been active on Tumblr and on Polyvore?
A. I've been using Tumblr upwards of 5 years now, but DisneyBound has been around for 3 years. I discovered Polyvore with my first DisneyBound outfit 3 years ago. I have 160,000+ Tumblr followers!

Q. How many sets do you create a week and how many do you share to Tumblr?
A. It varies, but I make about 20-30 sets a week on average. Just about every Polyvore set I make is shared to Tumblr. 

Q. What kind of reaction do your sets get on Tumblr?
A. I think the most positive responses I've gotten are the people who say, "I never fully understood fashion. I would look at Hollywood starlets and not relate, not understand how to put together a trendy outfit. But looking at it in the context of a Disney character, it opens up my eyes to fashion and trends." 

Q. Do you have any pro tips for growing your following on Polyvore and Tumblr?
A. I don't know the secret to growing your following, but as long as you have unique and original content, try to post think daily and interact with the following you already have, you'll start to see positive growth on your accounts!

I've been on Polyvore for just over a year and on TUMBLR for just a little less than that. I link my own and all my likes to TUMBLR and it's getting quite popular. Not as popular as Disney Bound, but not bad!

I post outfits inspired by the Nancy Drew game series. It's gotten quite a good response from our small but talented fandom!
