Unpopular opinion: I actually like the Tumblr dashboard redesign. It’s clean and adds a lot of functionality that was missing. (I can now hit a key command to insert a link. That’s huge.) — Ernie @ SFB

Tumblr’s getting a dashboard redesign today, which will allow people to post straight from the dashboard rather than a separate interface. You know, like Twitter. ”Now you’re making posts the same way you’re reading them,” the company says. Thoughts?

Tumblr user perzadook has some exciting news, guys.

perzadook:

After the Sandy Hook shootings in Newton, Connecticut I started a petition urging the Obama Administration to work with Congress to limit access to guns.  I first posted it here on tumblr and it quickly took off, making it’s way to Twitter and Facebook, eventually going viral.

In a few days it became the most popular petition on the “We The People” White House petition site, and even prompted a video response from the President.  Here’s the fun part… I found out a few days ago that I am invited to the White House this Wednesday.

While details are up in the air, I know there will be an interview, and a good chance to meet the king of Dad Sneakers and his #2, as well as some other fun stuff.  So with that said, here’s a big thanks to everyone who supported the petition, because it does matter.  If you have any questions/comments please let me know and I’ll do my best to answer them.  Wish me luck (I need a haircut and a shave).

Now this is awesome. Best of luck!

So … here’s what happened, according to David Karp.

staff:

Our engineering processes seriously failed this afternoon and cost you and your blogs nearly 4 hours of downtime and almost 100 million views.

Painfully, this isn’t the first time this winter I’ve had to give you similar news.

When incidents like this happen, our entire engineering team comes online to support the recovery as needed. Immediately after, we begin taking every measure to protect from the uncovered issue in the future.

We are constantly working to shore up our processes and solidify the stability of this quickly growing network, even more so as we’ve fallen behind the last few weeks.

Tumblr’s success is supporting your success, and we take this mission very seriously.

This was a rough one. As Hacker News points out, they had to shut off the DNS to fix it.

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.

Hey everyone! I have an exciting and slightly overwhelming milestone to share with you:
Tumblr has broken into the Top 10 sites in the U.S., and now has a worldwide audience of 170 million people.
This isn’t meant to be a brag – though you should definitely try our new Android and iOS apps if you haven’t yet – but a credit to all of your brilliant creative efforts. You guys have earned an audience bigger than the biggest TV networks, and you continue to make some of the most thought provoking, insightful, inspiring, funny, diverse, and compelling content being created today.
It is truly a privilege to build products for you, and we are humbled every day by all the amazing ways you use them.

Congrats, Tumblr peeps!

Yeah, this Tumblr site is kind of a big deal.
