Top 10 abandoned big-media Tumblrs of 2010; know any others?
- detnews (no posts in over one month – which is really depressing, because this is a really good blog with a great custom design and a good feel for the medium; hopefully it comes back)
mediaite (no posts in three weeks – come back, we miss you!) They’re baaaack!
- huffingtonpost (no posts in one month, plus numerous other HuffPo-related Tumblrs that haven’t gotten much love lately)
- nytimes (“coming soon” since June 24 – thanks idroolinmysleep)
- nylonmag (no posts in over one year)
- CBS (no posts in a year and a half)
- pitchfork (no posts in nine months, then no posts in two weeks … but we have a feeling they’ll be back for good soon)
- pastemagazine (no posts in four months, though they’ve had a rough year, so we’ll cut them some slack)
- emusic (a little bit of a stretch, but their last post is titled “The Best Albums of the Summer”)
- slateinbrief (no posts in one month, and they were just tweetworthy links to Slate, anyway)
… have any others? Send them to us! (Disclaimer: This is not meant as a criticism of the hard-working journalists who work on sites like these on top of twelve other things, but a reminder that for every Atlantic, NPR or Newsweek, there’s a CBS that’s been forgotten about. To criticize the journalists who run these things, or at least try to, would be unfair. Also, with the new year, corners can be turned. And there are still many media entities which don’t even have one! Examples: CNN, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and dozens of big-city newspapers. Need some help, guys?)
