Earlier this week we looked at the remarkable growth of Tumblr, a blogging and curation service that now gets over 12 billion page views per month. Tumblr is mostly used as a consumer curation tool - it’s an easy way for people to re-post articles, images and videos. But Tumblr can also be used to power a news website. That’s exactly what ShortFormBlog does.

Launched in January 2009 by Ernie Smith from Washington D.C., the site publishes about 30 news soundbites a day.

I interviewed Smith to find out more about his Tumblr-powered news service.
