Tumblr is a popular blogging site that lets you share photos, text posts, videos and music with your friends and followers. It’s a great place for artists, writers, and other people who want to share their work with others.
But if you want visitors to have access to your other social media accounts or content off the site, you can include a link in your blog’s bio.
Tumblr doesn’t tell you how to add links when you edit your bio, so it’s not obvious that you even can. But it’s surprisingly simple, as long as you know how to copy and paste.
How to add links to your Tumblr bio
Including a clickable URL requires some basic coding. To edit your account, you’ll want to start at your feed, or Dashboard.
1. Open Tumblr in a web browser and log in, and then head to your dashboard.
2. Click the icon in the top-right that looks like a person’s head and shoulders.
3. Under the blog that you want to edit, click “Edit appearance.” If the blog you want doesn’t have any options underneath, hover your mouse over its name and click the head-and-shoulders icon that appears next to it.
4. On the “Blog Options” page that opens, click “Edit theme.”
5. In the left sidebar, click the text underneath “Description.” This is your blog’s current bio.
6. Now it’s time to add your link. Copy and paste this code into the description box, in the place where you want your link to be:
7. Insert your link in place of “URL” and what you want the text to be in place of “TITLE.” Remember to delete the quotation marks.
8. Hit “Save” at the top of the sidebar, and then “Exit.”
Your link should now be active in your Tumblr bio.
