Tumblr Themes Grey and White Edition

Following Mondays post on WordPress Themes White Edition, there is today, Tumblr Themes Grey and White Edition.

Even though Tumblr is still struggling with down time, the service popularity hasn’t decreased a bit. With the enormous offer of themes available, it’s hard to make your Tumblr look like MySpace. But not everyone has a good taste, so I often come across ugly Tumblr sites. To have a site with an ugly theme borders on a crime considering all the high quality free themes.

I listed ten themes of which almost all are minimalist. Some of them use very nice fonts, such as, League Gothic. There are two premium themes listed, with the cheapest being 9 dollars.

Hat tip: Flickr has implemented a share feature which allows you to easily share a photo on Tumblr amongst other services. This is a great move considering Tumblr’s regular down times, they are not really trustworthy yet with data back-up. You can now upload all images on Flickr and share it with Tumblr and other sites.

    Ahh, some truly beautiful designs there. Digital Moleskine is without a doubt my favourite, such a simple monochromatic look but without looking dull.
