Ian Andersen always liked comics, but it wasn’t until he found James Kochalka’s American Elf that he started making his own. “The idea of just doing a strip a day about my own life really blew me away,” he says. Like many other cartoonists before him, he discovered that this daily routine pushed him to improve his ability in both drawing and writing. Ian has posted a daily comic for two years now, attends college, and drinks lots of coffee.

Like music? We fucking love music. Which is why we’re so excited to finally announce that we’ve hooked up with SoundCloud to bring their network of sound (music, podcasts, standup, journalism, and pretty much anything audible) to Tumblr.
Not only can you cut-and-paste any SoundCloud track URL into your Audio posts, now you can search SoundCloud from the comfort of Tumblr!
And did we mention you can post an unlimited number of SoundCloud tracks every day? Yeah.
But where this really shines is on your beautiful blogs. We pull in the track info, album art, and play count, to display perfectly in your theme. Here’s one in our Well Liked theme:
And just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, our wonderful friends at SoundCloud just added a “Share on Tumblr” feature to their iPhone/Android apps, Tumblr buttons on all SoundCloud tracks, and Tumblr auto-posting for SoundCloud users. *swoon*
Get to posting. Enjoy!
Awesome. This happened last night. :)
