The Tumblr dashboard shows a few blogs that it "recommends" that I follow.

  • Are these recommendations personalized?
  • How are these recommendations generated? By followers/notes? Are they curated?

In order to get recommended you need to have a blog that is popular and interesting to the users of tumblr.

That doesn't really answer the question though. What constitutes "popular and interesting?" Is it notes? Is it followers? Is it page views? Is there a system that automatically calculates these? Is it manually curated? – phantom42 Mar 19 '14 at 13:56
