Quick Tip: Read Tumblr Feed in an RSS Reader

If you have $10 to spare and like RSS reading, this little workflow has helped me more fully integrate Tumblr into my day. While it sacrifices ‘likes’ and ‘reblogs,’ I think it makes up for it in formatting and convenience. Now I read Tumblr posts alongside the other RSS feeds that I check on every day—ranging from Mac Rumors to new job listings.

Things needed: IFTTT account (like Dropbox, a service I can no longer live without, and is free); a Feedly account (also free), and ReadKit ($7). You can also use any RSS reader of your choice that integrates with Feedly.


  1. Set up an IFTTT recipe that pushes new Tumblr posts to Feedly. This one will do the trick.

  2. Set up a smart folder in ReadKit that pulls in your Tumblr feed. Here is how mine is configured:

That’s all there is to it.
