Tumblr Runs Into “Networking Issue” That Affects Subset Of Custom Domain Blogs (UPDATED)

view story

http://techcrunch.com – If you use Tumblr to host a blog with a custom domain name, you might notice that it’s not functioning properly. That’s apparently the case for companies like Airtime, Pinterest and Path, as I’ve come to find. Basically, blogs that are blog.whatever.com. I reached out to Tumblr and received the following response: There’s a networking issue affecting a subset of custom domain blogs- there will be a post up on staff shortly but the issue has been mostly resolved and performance is being restored. While I’m not sure what “networking issue” means exactly (IT news)
