Point domain to Tumblr from GoDaddy

Tumblr is an easy micro blogging tool which has been extensively used to share different kinds of information. You can create a free account to write your blog and even point your domain to it and then manage your website via Tumblr’s dashboard. Here, I have tried to compile a simple way to connect one’s domain from GoDaddy to Tumblr.
