Tumblr makes blog post creation faster and easier

The microblogging site revamps its Dashboard to let users pop in text, photos, audio, links, and more with just one click.

Tumblr is making it easier for bloggers to blog. The site began rolling out its revamped Dashboard today, which lets users create entire posts without leaving the page.

"It's a step toward making the Dashboard a smaller and more streamlined experience," a Tumblr spokesperson told The Verge. " With this new way to create a post, the Dashboard has become a single experience. Now you're making posts the same way you're reading them."

Before the revamp, users often had to go to new pages when creating blog posts. Now, users can pop in text, quotes, photos, links, video and audio all from within the Dashboard.

The microblogging site has been doing quite a few upgrades lately. It released its new iOS app in December that is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and the iPad. Tumblr also recently unveiled an app for Android devices, which includes Android tablets.
