We’ll be rolling out Fan Mail — a new interblog messaging service — over the next few days for everyone.
You can send unlimited Fan Mail to the blogs you follow and customize each message.
You’ll see the new option appear in your Inbox, avatar menus, or in the top corner of the blogs you follow.
Two days ago, you guys stepped up once again to show the world just how much we care about protecting the Internet. Together, we generated more than 140,000 calls to Senators, spent more than 4,200 hours on the phone with their staffers, and blacked out 650,000 of our blogs to make our point and inspire others to get involved. And what’s more, this was on top of the 90,000 calls we sent to members of the House of Representatives a month ago. Incredible.
It’s now becoming clear just how much impact our action is having. On January 18th, only 31 members of Congress opposed these bills. Just one day later, 101 members of Congress publicly stood with us in opposition. We are being heard.
And as of today, it looks like both the Senate PIPA and House SOPA bills have been shelved, for the moment. It seems pretty likely that the bills won’t pass as written—a big first win. We now hope that Internet companies, the creative community and the content industry join together to innovate and devise new partnerships to combat online piracy. We’re confident there are effective ways to do this without damaging the Internet or diminishing our freedoms.
You’ve made a big difference in keeping the Internet a safe and open place for creators. Thank you again.

Introducing your new Activity page (and “Tumblarity”)
Two big things:
- We’ve added a new link on your Dashboard labeled Tumblarity. This will take you to your new Activity page where you can see cumulative and trending stats about your activity on Tumblr.
For the past few months we’ve been using an internal metric called “Tumblarity” to sort and filter content on the Search and Popular Content pages. Tumblarity is derived from every blog’s activity and popularity across our network. We’re getting ready to start using it to organize the boss new Tumblr directory (which should be done next week!).
Please ignore the fact that I’m less popular than fuckyeahparamore.
Awesome. This happened last night. :)
And thank you, Daily Show!!
