If I used the api to post, I would like to return back the Tumblr permalink for that site I sent it to.

When you post via the API the postId will be returned. So you just append /post/{postId} to the blog's URL to get the permalink. This URL will not include the slug but the slug is just for easier reading. If you added a custom slug then just append it to to the URL.

To get the blog's URL do an API call to api/authenticate and it will return the URL for all the public blogs of that account, including the one you posted to.
