Should You Be on Tumblr? Seven Business Case Examples
@tumblr Raises $85 Million Round From Greylock Partners, Insight Venture Partners, the Chernin Group, Spark Capital, Union Square Ventures and Sequoia Capital and Richard Branson.
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. ShortFormBlog is still a part-time project for Smith, who also works as a graphic designer at The Washington Post. He’s hoping to turn the site into a full-time business. And I think he’s onto something, certainly in terms of using a tool like Tumblr to change the way news is delivered and consumed. I interviewed Smith to find out more about his Tumblr-powered news service.
