We love Tumblr and we especially love the diversity and creativity that goes into making it the wonderful place that it is. That means we know that not everyone works at a company with the budget for these plans. We’re working on more analytics offerings for everyone, including a version for anyone interested in measuring their personal blogs. That’s coming soon, so stay tuned!Union Metrics’ Tumblr analytics system — which uses the Tumblr firehose — is now available, though most users can’t afford the $499/month starting price (most companies totally can, though). The company says they’re working on it.

» SFB says: It’s very finicky about addresses. When setting yours up, type in your address using the format “yourname.tumblr.com” without a slash, even if you have a custom domain. It will come up with an error if you don’t. Either way, it’s still pretty beta, but it looks cool. Only real downside is that the information getting analyzed is public, so just know that going in. — Ernie @ SFB
