For you guys that have Tumblrs, this probably isn’t news. But I know some of y’all just check the site, so I wanted to tell everyone it looks like Tumblr’s gonna be down tomorrow. This is part of the explanation:
“We are now ready to complete the last major step in upgrading our infrastructure. Unfortunately, it has one very uncomfortable side-effect: all traffic to blogs and the Dashboard will be suspended during the operation — returning a simple “we’ll be right back” message.
We are preparing for any issues that may arise and want you to expect your blogs to be unavailable starting at 4:00am EDT this Saturday (Oct 6th), and to come back online slowly over the next few hours.”
Until they get it up and running, my hands are tied. So don’t be alarmed, everything should get back to normal soon, and sorry for the inconvenience.
