Tumblr updated their API service to use OAuth. I can no loger use my own username and password to post on my own blog, I have to use OAuth.

I am not interested in creating a full blown app, I just want to be able to post on my own blog using their API. What is the easy way to authenticate with OAuth and start posting?

How are you currently using the API? Most languages have libraries that can handle the OAuth for you fairly easily. – John C Sep 27 '12 at 1:16
APIs are really rather developer, and not end user, problems. I suspect that this question really belongs on Stack Overflow or, perhaps better, with Tumblr's support. – Al E. Jul 14 '15 at 16:56
