Soundcloud and Tumblr are leading the way in both of their respective fields, and combining the two by embedding SoundCloud’s audio player is a popular way of sharing music.
SoundCloud is a music streaming service which gives you 2 hours worth of space with which you can upload your mp3s. Posting the streams of these mp3s to Tumblr, the popular microblogging platform, couldn’t be easier.
First, login to both your SoundCloud and Tumblr accounts, simple, I know!
In Soundlcoud go to ‘You’, and then ‘Tracks’ – this will take you to the songs you’ve uploaded. Once you’ve decided what song you want to embed into a Tumblr post, click on the ‘Share’ icon.
This brings up a new module with a piece of HTML code – copy the HTML and head over to Tumblr.
In your Tumblr dashboard start a new post by clicking ‘Text’ and in the clear page, copy the HTML. Hit ‘Preview’ to make sure it looks right, and then publish your post!
A simple yet effective way of sharing your music with your Tumblr community without going over your limited audio uploads.
If you’re on either Tumblr or Soundcloud leave me a comment and I’ll be sure to have a look and a listen!
