Hey everyone! I have an exciting and slightly overwhelming milestone to share with you:
Tumblr has broken into the Top 10 sites in the U.S., and now has a worldwide audience of 170 million people.
This isn’t meant to be a brag – though you should definitely try our new Android and iOS apps if you haven’t yet – but a credit to all of your brilliant creative efforts. You guys have earned an audience bigger than the biggest TV networks, and you continue to make some of the most thought provoking, insightful, inspiring, funny, diverse, and compelling content being created today.
It is truly a privilege to build products for you, and we are humbled every day by all the amazing ways you use them.
Friends, with your help we were able to raise $318K for hurricane victims. Thanks to all who gave, to Humans of New York and Tumblr for their leadership, and to indiegogo.com which waived all fees for this campaign. Not a penny donated goes to any admin fees or such—all money goes directly to assist affected families. A happy Thanksgiving indeed.
This is amazing. I am glad to be a part of such an amazing group of people that are so willing to give back to those who were not as fortunate through the after math of hurricane sandy. Thank you Tumblr for letting me be a part of the family, George Takei for putting your celebrity stamp of approval on this and HONY for doing so much to reach out to those who need it most. Thank you all! Happy Turkey Day everyone!!
To all our loyal readers: Thanks for working through the issues and continuing to read while the site’s been down. And many thanks to Tumblr for having us! We’ll be posting throughout the weekend as usual, but the regular site should come back up on Monday, and everything will return to normal. See you then!
Happy to be able to help anyone that was affected by Sandy, even other sites! Tumbl’ on!
Save the coffee!
