 1. Create an IFTT account

2. Click on this "Recipe" to start posting from Dreamwidth to Tumblr
3. In the "Keyword or simple phrase" section add the Trigger Tag you will apply to Dreamwidth entriesl. This tag will tell the Recipe when to cross-post to tumblr. 
If you want to send all Dreamwidth posts to tumblr use this recipe instead.
4. In the "Feed URL" add the RSS Feed of your Dreamwidth Journal (BTW, this works with LiveJournal  - just substitute the LJ RSS feed.  
Your DW RSS feed will be something like: http://NameOfMyAwesomeDWJournal.dreamwidth.org/data/rss
5. In the "Body" box change all the placeholder DW Journal names to the name of your DW Journal. There are 3 places where you must do this (see graphic below)
6. In the "Tags" box add a tag that you'd like to appear on your tumblr post. Ex: fandom meta or "Dreamwidth Crosspost"
7. Click the "Add" button
8. Go to the Recipe and click "Publish".
9. Exit IFTT
10. Check your Dreamwidth RSS Feed Settings here: (look under Syndication Level)
If you only want the title of your DW post top appear with a link back, use "Title Only"
If you want only a portion of your DW post to appear with a link back, use "Brief Summary"
If you want your entire DW post to appear on Tumblr use "Full Text"
11. Create your DW post. Don't forget to use the Trigger Tag you added to the IFTT Recipe. If you have set an age limit on your DW posts, you may need to remove it if you have selected the Full or Partial RSS Feed option.
12. If the post does not appear on your tumblr within 30 minutes, try logging back into IFTT, Open up the recipe and click "Check Now"
