Tumblr fue fundado por David Karp en el año 2007.

Una actualización, años de trabajo…

Cuando nos imaginamos cómo sería Tumblr hace más de siete años, soñamos con poder ofrecer a los creadores un lienzo nuevo que llenar, una página en blanco. Cada publicación sería una invitación directa a ver el mundo a través de los ojos y la mente de su autor. Fantaseamos sobre cómo la interfaz desaparecería al hacerse todo lo demás realidad.

Durante años, esta idea se vio frenada por las limitaciones tecnológicas de los navegadores y por una cantidad abrumadora de funciones de Tumblr a las que atender, que además no dejaron de aumentar. Hoy, al fin, podemos dar un gran paso.

Tras meses de dedicación y esfuerzo, hemos conseguido reducir el proceso creativo en Tumblr a la mínima expresión, manteniendo todas y cada una de las funciones y haciendo hueco a otras nuevas que creemos que serán cruciales, como la creación de sets de fotos más fáciles de personalizar al poder arrastrar las imágenes directamente, las mejoras a la hora de subir archivos o la posibilidad de rebloguear publicaciones sin moverse del Escritorio. ¡Estamos deseando que las probéis!

Hemos empezado a aplicar los cambios y estarán disponibles para todos los usuarios antes de que acabe el fin de semana. Ya hemos arreglado la mayoría de los errores y descuidos de los que nos habéis informado, pero no dudéis en escribirnos si tenéis cualquier problema.

Interface de publicación (Blog o Thumblr?)

Si estás empezando en el mundo de los blogs, querrás una plataforma que sirva a tus objetivos y te permita publicar y compartir contenidos con facilidad. Aunque tanto Tumblr como Blogspot permiten publicar todo tipo de contenidos, la interfaz de Tumblr lo hace un poco más fácil de navegar. Desde el panel de control Tumblr, los usuarios pueden hacer clic en el botón que corresponda con el tipo de contenido que desean compartir: videos, fotos, texto y más. En la plataforma de Blogspot, por su parte, los usuarios tienen un solo tipo de mensaje para elegir, desde la que pueden añadir videos, fotos, textos u otros tipos de contenido. Ambas plataformas logran el objetivo final de publicar contenido;Tumblr sólo hace que sea un poco más fácil de navegar.

Compartir

Tus metas para el uso compartido de contenido puede ser un gran factor determinante para elegir Blogspot o Tumblr. La página “Acerca de” en Tumblr define la estructura de la plataforma claramente: “Tumblr te permite compartir fácilmente cualquier cosa.” Una vez que publiques algo, hay opciones “me gusta” y “republicar” para cada mensaje, lo que hace que sea fácil para que otros usuarios compartan tus mensajes en Facebook, en su blog de Tumblr propio y en cualquier número de otros sitios sociales. Del mismo modo, los mensajes de otras personas que “republiques” automáticamente se publicarán en tu propio blog Tumblr. La plataforma Blogspot, por su parte se centra únicamente en compartir tu propio contenido. En Blogger “Acerca de Nosotros”, el objetivo de la plataforma se define como “ayudar a las personas tener voz propia en la web”, nota que no dice nada acerca de compartir contenidos de otros. Con este fin en Blogspot, los usuarios deben crear un botón “Me gusta” como en Facebook, o un botón de acción para otros sitios sociales mediante la manipulación del código HTML de tu página, o realizar otras personalizaciones para poder compartir en otras redes sociales.

3 Insights From #TumblrCEO David Karp


Thinking Social / Value

#TumblrCEO David Karp visited Social@Ogilvy New York last week to share some of the key drivers of Tumblr’s explosive growth.

1. Keep Conversations Positive and Authentic

Karp believes, “Commenting is flawed. It slows conversation, and can be pernicious.”

As a result, Tumblr only offers users the ability to either reblog or “heart” content.  This strategy prevents negative comments and focuses user attention on a natural conversation flow, which helps explain why the average Tumblr blog receives an amazing nine (9) reblogs.

As a comparison, the industry average is 0.83 comments per blog post on other blogging services, says Karp.

Here’s an example of a creative illustration that has been reblogged almost 2,800 times.

2.  Celebrate the Artist … 

According to Karp, “there are 150 million Tumblr users across the globe, 60% of the audience is currently international.”

However, what really stands out is how 75% of page views on Tumblr are from logged-in users.  The strategy of developing a community is clearly working.  People log in because they want credit for their creations and don’t want to be anonymous when they comment on other’s work.

As a comparison, YouTube is currently seeing approximately 1% of views that come from logged-in users.

3. The Secret Weapon

According to Karp, ‘Tumblr Radar is like your friend who says, “Hey, have you seen this yet?’”

As a result, “the Tumblr Radar is the most sought-after spot in our network” because it showcases the most creative and interesting media in the network.

From a reach perspective, the Tumblr radar generates over 120 million daily pages across mobile and desktop devices. Cream rises to the top, as the Tumblr Radar is only updated a few times a day with only the best content.

What Successful People Do With The First Hour Of Their Work Day


BY KEVIN PURDY | fastcompany.com

How much does the first hour of every day matter? As it turns out, a lot. It can be the hour you see everything clearly, get one real thing done, and focus on the human side of work rather than your task list.

Remember when you used to have a period at the beginning of every day to think about your schedule, catch up with friends, maybe knock out a few tasks? It was called home room, and it went away after high school. But many successful people schedule themselves a kind of grown-up home room every day. You should too.

The first hour of the workday goes a bit differently for Craig Newmark of Craigslist, David Karp of Tumblr, motivational speaker Tony Robbins, career writer (and Fast Company blogger) Brian Tracy, and others, and they’ll tell you it makes a big difference. Here are the first items on their daily to-do list.

Don’t Check Your Email for the First Hour. Seriously. Stop That.

Tumblr founder David Karp will “try hard” not to check his email until 9:30 or 10 a.m., according to an Inc. profile of him. “Reading e-mails at home never feels good or productive,” Karp said. “If something urgently needs my attention, someone will call or text me.”

Not all of us can roll into the office whenever our Vespa happens to get us there, but most of us with jobs that don’t require constant on-call awareness can trade e-mail for organization and single-focus work. It’s an idea that serves as the title of Julie Morgenstern’s work management book Never Check Email In The Morning, and it’s a fine strategy for leaving the office with the feeling that, even on the most over-booked days, you got at least one real thing done.

If you need to make sure the most important messages from select people come through instantly, AwayFind can monitor your inbox and get your attention when something notable arrives. Otherwise, it’s a gradual but rewarding process of training interruptors and coworkers not to expect instantaneous morning response to anything they send in your off-hours.

Gain Awareness, Be Grateful

One smart, simple question on curated Q & A site Quora asked “How do the most successful people start their day?”. The most popular response came from a devotee of Tony Robbins, the self-help guru who pitched the power of mindful first-hour rituals long before we all had little computers next to our beds.

Robbins suggests setting up an “Hour of Power,” “30 Minutes to Thrive,” or at least “Fifteen Minutes to Fulfillment.” Part of it involves light exercise, part of it involves motivational incantations, but the most accessible piece involves 10 minutes of thinking of everything you’re grateful for: in yourself, among your family and friends, in your career, and the like. After that, visualize “everything you want in your life as if you had it today.”

Robbins offers the “Hour of Power” segment of his Ultimate Edge series as a free audio stream (here’s the direct MP3 download). Blogger Mike McGrath also wrote a concise summary of the Hour of Power). You can be sure that at least some of the more driven people you’ve met in your career are working on Robbins’ plan.

5 Ways Tumblr is Tapping Global Bloggers

New language themes

As of this week, Tumblr is offering its themes in five languages: English, German, Japanese, French, and Italian. The 3.1 million global page visitors that flock to the site each day will likely appreciate this development — Tumblr makes no small deal out of all its featured and premium designs for blog pages. The site even has compiled these designs into a “theme garden” where you can choose from almost 500 templates. The “Bus Full of Hippies” theme, for example, has drawn 46,560 users. Theme designers can also translate their text strings into any of these five languages on the site.
