Tumblr now offers Pinned posts for $5
Tumblr users may have noticed a somewhat annoying little red pin on their Dashboard a few minutes ago. If you click the red pin, it goes away - yay! - but wait - it returns if you leave the dash and come back, or refresh the page. It’s a Pinned post, which is a new way that Tumblr is offering users to highlight their posts to get more exposure.
The Pinned post will stay atop of the Dashboard for 24 hours and will cost you $5 if you wish to pin something. This is surely a great way to get a lot of exposure for your posts, and to quite possibly piss off your followers. Pinning posts is in addition to the Highlighted Posts which Tumblr launched earlier this year. To pin a post, simply click Promote this post at the bottom of each new post.
By the way, this is a Pinned post, let’s see how it goes! :P
