Today TechCrunch reported that Tumblr has recorded more than one billion posts. Even more dramatically, the article counted 7.2 million users and 1.7 billion pageviews a month.
To celebrate, we’ve collected some of the book deals coming out of this creative blog network. In January 2010, the Stuff Hipsters Hate Tumblr blog sealed a deal. In that post, agent Jason Ashlock from Movable Type Literary Group explained the appeal of Tumblr book deals.
In April, the Hipster Puppies Tumblr blog inked a deal, we interviewed founder Christopher Weingarten about the “Natural Tumblr-to-Book Ecosystem.”
In May, What I Wore Tumblr blogger Jessica Schroeder scored a book deal.
In July, S*** My Kids Ruined Tumblr blog signed a book deal.
And don’t forget, GQ magazine called for an end to Tumblr book deals earlier this year.
