Wow, I started noticing a lot of my favorite sites that use the Tumblr platform, being down late last evening. And then a little while later they were still down. And then early this morning. And then they were down for 13 hours and counting. As of this writing, they are still down.
I’m surprised, or rather didn’t know, that even if you have a self-hosted URL and Tumblr is your blogging platform, you can still be affected like this. That seems weird. The centralization would drive me nuts. Wordpress might not be great, but at least it can’t crash like this.
