Tumblr Comes Tumbling Down: Outage for Millions of Blogs

The service remained down as of early Friday afternoon

Legions of bloggers worldwide found themselves unable to post updates this morning after Tumblr, the blogging platform, experienced an outage.

The problem began before 7:30 a.m. ET and the service, which hosts more than 77 million blogs, was still down as of 11:00 a.m. ET, CNN noted.

Tumblr is ranked as the 36th-most visited website. For U.S.-based Web-surfers, it’s the 19-most visited, according to Alexa.

Naturally, Tumblr took to Twitter to say that it was aware of the problem and looking for a solution. The outage was attributed to unspecified difficulties with one of Tumblr’s uplink providers.

Users also vented on Twitter as the hours passed without the blogging service returning to action. Though a small number said they had been able to link to Tumblr without encountering snags.

Privately held Tumblr is one of the leading social media services along with Google‘s (NASDAQ:GOOG) YouTube, Twitter and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB).
