This tutorial explains how to post Wikipedia Picture of the day on your Tumblr blog.
Updating your Tumblr blog with valuable pictures, text, gifs, etc., is a great way to make your blog better and keep growing. Posting Wikipedia pictures daily to your Tumblr blog could be a nice addition in this list. However, manually it might not be possible for you to post the picture on the same time. To ease this task, here is an IFTTT recipe using which you can automatically update your Tumblr blog with Wikipedia Picture of the day (photo from Wikimedia commons).
You need to connect your Tumblr blog with IFTTT. After this, whenever a new picture is added on Wikimedia Picture of the day page, the recipe will fetch that picture and post it on your Tumblr blog automatically and daily.
In the screenshot above, IFTTT recipe used by me to perform this task is visible.
