Tumblr tricks…

When you want to link a special tumblr day, you can do it like this:

(yourtumblrname).tumblr.com/day/(year)/(month)/(day)

at the end it should look for example like this:

designerconfetti.tumblr.com/day/2010/08/07

The good is, that it shows up more than just the maximum 15 posts (when you have posted more on this day), but you don’t need to tag your posts to get this effect…
