Being new to tumblr, I didn’t realize that posts didn’t automatically come with an option for readers to leave comments. Silly me.
But after some quick googling, I am happy to report that commenting is now enabled on my posts. For those of you who might be interested in adding this function, here’s what you do:
1) Go to disqus.com
2) Sign up using your tumblr account information
3) Come back to tumblr and go to Preferences > Customize your blog > Appearances
> Enter your Disqus Shortname in the appropriate field
4) Save and let the comments flow!
