After dethroning Typepad for the bronze, it looks as if Tumblr has reached yet another milestone by surpassing one billion posts!
Today, Tumblr passed one BILLION posts!

Tumblr has yet to reveal which member published the billionth post, but either way this is quite an accomplishment for a company that did not exist four years ago.
Despite its smaller stature (at least when compared against rivals), Tumblr’s presence has forever altered the blogosphere as a whole, with services such as LiveJournal, Typepad, and even WordPress.com mimicking the sites reblog feature.
Although Tumblr has a long ways to go before it can effectively compete against WordPress (and to a larger extent Blogger), the micro blogging site for now seems destined to break into the mainstream as a serious blogging tool.
