<tumblr version=”1.0″>

<tumblelog name=”demo” timezone=”US/Eastern” title=”Demo”>
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.

<posts start=”0″ total=”6″>

<post id=”236″ url=”http://demo.tumblr.com/post/236″ url-with-slug=”http://demo.tumblr.com/post/236/it-does-not-matter-how-slow-you-go-so-long-as-you” type=”quote” date-gmt=”2006-11-08 19:27:00 GMT” date=”Wed, 08 Nov 2006 14:27:00″ unix-timestamp=”1163014020″ format=”html” reblog-key=”iKvmNy9T” slug=”it-does-not-matter-how-slow-you-go-so-long-as-you”>
