Scraping Tumblr

Today I completed a longstanding project to move my blog entirely over to Hugo. Previously, I maintained a blog on my consulting site, crome-plated that was powered by Tumblr. I used Tumblr to easily create content, and then I would pull that content into my own site, transforming it to look like native content. The content would often grow stale though, and I felt like it was putting a bad foot forward to prospective clients.
