How I believe Tumblr has helped my career: It's helped me in ways that five years ago would have never been possible unless you're a celebrity or connected to someone who is extremely influential. It's gotten me noticed by several reputable companies including the Impossible Project, Holden Outerwear, Time Magazine, The Huffington Post, and Club Monaco.
My advice for artists on Tumblr: There's an invisible revolution going on right now, and we're smack dab in the middle of it. The old methods of processing art and advertising are being upheaved from the roots, and an entire playing field is opening up to the "common man."
Don't miss this opportunity. Find your niche, and use whatever methods of social media you can to promote yourself. Work so hard at it that you create a snowball effect, and eventually the opportunities will come to you.
