Popular blogging hub, Tumblr, has just released a number of new refinements to its Dashboard. All of the changes, which we detail below, have been rolled out to users.

Most notably, basic stats are now back in the top right corner for users, a useful feature that had been previously removed:

Other adjustments include the addition of a blog menu, which lets you manage more than one blog, and the ability to filter messages by blog in your Inbox.

Lastly, as you can see below, all of your settings have been consolidated under the settings icon, simplifying things a bit.

All in all, these are minor adjustments, but continued refinement is important to Tumblr, as the blogging platform was originally known for its clean design, simplicity and ease of use. In other words, if it wants to keep up, it has to keep moving.

This news comes after recent updates to Tumblr’s iPhone and Android apps.
