Belfast December Meetup

The Tumblr community in Northern Ireland likes to get together in a big way, and they’ve just created a blog that proves it: NI Tumblr Family. They’ve already posted more than 100 meetup photos in just a few days!

On that note, several others have created Meetup blogs for their own towns and universities. Here are some of our favorites:

The Tumblr Community self-organizes hundreds of Meetups around the world every month. We’ll highlight some of the stories behind our favorite Tumblr Meetups here every Friday.

Bicoastal NY/LA Tumblr Play-Up

David Vienna, proprietor of popular Dad Blog The Daddy Complex, had a dream: The first-ever bicoastal Tumblr Play-Up for parents and their kids in Los Angeles and New York, to take place simultaneously. Locations were picked, a spiffy flier was created, and it became a reality.

On November 19, while Kirby Amour of Baby G! hosted Tumblr parents and babies at Brooklyn Bridge Park in NY, David hosted the LA contingent at the Pan Pacific Park.

“I’m not going to sugarcoat it — if you missed it, you missed a pretty good time,” David said afterwards. “The post-game cocktail was deserved.”
