Tumblr gives you complete control over all aspects of your blog, and once you know some HTML, you can make them look pretty much any way you want!

This weekend, we hosted a meeting at Tumblr HQ with top technology companies, politicians and advocacy groups to coordinate our effort to reform or prevent the well-intentioned but deeply flawed Stop Online Piracy Act from becoming law. You guys have already made a huge impact in Washington, but the legislation still poses a threat.
This week is crucial for action as the bill may be finalized and put to a vote by Friday. We’ll be making a serious push this week to make sure Congress hears our concerns.
We’ll keep you updated on how you can join in the effort. Please stay tuned!
