Farewell Tumblr, It’s Been A Blast
In late January we moved the Envato Marketplace blogs here to Tumblr, and it has been a blast. A crazy 4,006 posts later over seven tumblogs, we’ve come to appreciate Tumblr’s speed and flexibility, its informal atmosphere, its variety of post types, its integration with other social media sites, and its bookmarklet that allows you to create Tumblr content from just about anywhere.
Many of you have found a home at Tumblr too, with 1,252 of you creating your own tumblogs and following us. If you’d like to give your new home a fresh coat of paint, you’ll want to check out ThemeForest’s Tumblr Themes section and pick out something that appeals.
But it’s time for us to move on. A new unified blog called Envato Notes will be launched in the next day or so. The new blog will support marketplace authors, sharing tips and giving advice that will help you market yourself more effectively. It will also be a central place for the community to get together and keep up with the latest Envato news.
See you around!
