  • This is an amazing list. When the Locus theme came out I knew it would instantly become a favorite, I see that quite a few people have downloaded it already in such a short time. I have never been a huge Tumblr fan so I haven’t really looked at any of their themes. I was really impressed when I saw the tumblr templates listed here as they are really nice. Thanks for the inclusion as well :)

  • Looks to much on a themeforest list :( we have seen these kind of lists to many times.

  • I’d like to use Tumblr themes… but Tumblr is so slow these days. 😛

  • I agree with Mark, this post is WAY too themeforest heavy i.e. advertising for them.

  • Thanks very much guys for showcasing 4 of our themes. It kind of motivates and encourage us to keep going and innovate more and more niche themes that help the community to build out of the box websites easily in wordpress.

  • I want to blog on Tumblr, but the thing is that I don’t like that all my pictures that I post are small! On my old Swedish blog I could choose the size and make them alot bigger. Look here, http://www.spaceoddity.blogg.se
