We’re going back to SXSW. Want to hear us talk? Vote for one of our panels! Better yet, vote for all of them. Why not? That’s democracy.

Voting runs through September 4—that’s three Fridays from now—but all early voters get a special sense of accomplishment. One thing: you’ll need to create an account to vote, but you can use your Facebook so it’s not really a thing at all.


Tumblr founder and CEO David Karp (@david) and Head of Communications Katherine Barna (@alittlespace) talk about Tumblr encouraging conversations about mental health.

Hey Look! Katherine Barna accepted a Webby Award on behalf of tumblr last night!

Her Five-word speech: Thanks.Tumblr.com


On Friday August 22, 2014 the Explainer Blog Team took a trip to Tumblr Headquarters! Having never gone before, we were all super excited to meet the staff and get some insight. 

We met Katherine Barna, Betsy Cannon, Sarah Henochowicz and Janice Chang. These women told us about their backgrounds and how they attained jobs at Tumblr. It was super inspirational to hear their stories!

As a team we had many questions about how to create a more beneficial blog for our readers and we got a lot of advice that we are excited to use. Our tumblr experience was topped off with goodies and a tour of the Headquarters!

We look forward to planning a better experience for our readers and if you have any suggestions, please feel free to message us!

Throwback Thursday — Tumblr HQ Tour from 2011:
Fast Company (fastcompany) recently named Tumblr HQ the best office in New York City. In 2011, TechCrunch Cribs created a 10-minute video of Tumblr HQ, featuring two Tumblr tour guides — current communications director Katherine Barna (alittlespace) and former engineering vice president Matt Hackett (matthew). Plus, there’s a cameo by Tumblr’s former editorial extraordinaire Christopher Price (topherchris).
