Tumblr passes 100 million blogs mark

Blogging site Tumblr has crossed the 100 million blogs mark, with those blogs containing over 4.6 billion posts.

According to Tumblr's counter (tumblr.com/about), the site now has 100.1 million blogs and around 4.6 billion posts, with, as of 12:30 GMT March 27, 80,231,645 of them having been posted on Wednesday alone.

Tumblr, a fully customizable, largely picture driven blogging site that runs with a mere 137 staff members, is available in 12 languages and was founded in 2007. Crossing the 100 million mark shows significant growth for the site, which passed 50 million blogs and 20 billion posts back in April 2012.

One of the world's other biggest blogging sites, Wordpress, currently boasts over 63 million blogs, attracting 382 million people who view 3.6 billion pages per month. The site also claims that its users generate 39.3 million new posts and 41.4 million new comments per month.
