Author is a beautiful, customisable blank page for you to share your thoughts and ideas. Customise everything, and create your own writing space.
Author is designed to beautifully showcase your writing, whether being read on a desktop, tablet, or phone.
Subtle colours and textures let you make the site your own (and it works equally well for photos, audio, video, and every post type).
The regular blog style layout works best for long-form text, but you can also choose a masonry grid layout if you'd prefer (and show more posts on each page). It's simple to toggle between the two.
Author comes with an array of different widgets, all arranged at the bottom of the page. You can feature your latest photographs from Flickr or Instagram, your most recent tweets, inspiration on Pinterest, other blogs you follow, and more.
Social buttons let people follow your adventures on your various social media channels.
Choose from a selection of beautiful pre-defined colour schemes — navy, blue, red, green, and chocolate — to add your personality to your theme. Or, if you'd prefer, choose the custom colour scheme option, and change everything to match your own style.
You can also choose your background texture — lined paper, grid paper, dotted paper, or just a clean blank slate!
A unique feature makes it easy for your readers to flick around your site, using only their keyboard.
H takes you home, R takes you to a random post, and the Left and Right arrows navigate between posts or pages. Discover a whole new way to browse your Tumblr site!
