spryfry says: Where did you go to school? What did you want to be when you were a kid?

» SFB says: I thought I was going to program video games for a living, but a funny thing happened on the way there—I started writing for video game sites (most notably the old-school gaming site Zophar’s Domain) and realized that I really liked writing. So my first semester at Saginaw Valley State University, I dropped out of my computer science class. Then I eventually transferred to Michigan State University to major in journalism. The funny part of all this is, other than Dots, I don’t play video games anymore. — Ernie @ SFB

l1ttlebulldozer says: What advice would you give a recent college graduate about looking for jobs in the world of news and social media? Are they destined to flop finding a career or is this type of platform something that will continue to grow?

» SFB says: Side projects are essential. They show initiative and prove that you can step up. Be willing to put the work in on your own to show you can do it, then use it as a starting point to take things even further. Fill out your portfolio with the outside-of-work stuff and you’ll stand out. — Ernie @ SFB

Wordpress has found itself flush with a few new users following news of the Yahoo/Tumblr deal

  • 400-600 posts per hour are typically imported from Tumblr to new Wordpress blogs, according to founder Matt Mullenweg, prior to the company’s recently announced acquisition by Yahoo.
  • 72,000 posts per hour have been imported since news of the buyout first broke, though that’s hardly a number for Yahoo/Tumblr execs to worry about, given the site’s 75 million post per day average. source

On the future of The Pitch

rachelcstella says: Wait, this was only for the summer? You’re not going to continue? Oh, I wish you’d keep this feature going!

» SFB says: We like The Pitch, too, but we want to be careful to give features a chance to lay dormant, for fear of overexposure. (For example: We want to bring the Tumbl-zine back at some point.) We think that there’s a lot of opportunity to do things like The Pitch, but at the same time, we don’t want to have such a feature wear out its welcome. We may bring it back at some point based on time and reader demand for sure. We like doing it! :0 — Ernie @ SFB
