I haven’t. But you may have. Which is sort of an odd question to wonder…..but apparently, there are a lot of odd people in the world. (and if you’ve arrived here looking for the best time to update your tumblr blog, unfortunately…..you are one of them)
That said – here is a pretty interesting set of statistics about when users are most likely to be most engaged on Tumblr….and thus, potentially most receptive to reading (and reblogging) your message.
Tumblr is really such a great way to get started with building a real relationship with your ideal audience – that if you find yourself struggling to connect with your community, you are really missing out if you’re not using it. (plus it’s the best blogging platform for content CURATION as well – you can literally build your blog – and attract an audience – all while curating the content that others have created…without stepping on anyone’s toes)
Check out the full blog post below – and a great infographic highlighting the best time to update your tumblr blog – and why – below 🙂
We’ve found that weekends are the busiest days on Tumblr and Sunday is the most active day overall. Nights are the busiest times, no matter the day of the week. Post activity is at the highest at 4:00 pm EDT; notes peak at 10:00 pm EDT.The heatmaps show Tumblr post and note activity; each square shows the intensity of activity during that day and hour. The darker the color, the busier that hour is. So, what can you do with this info? Well, Tumblr is more active at night, so you’re more likely to have a bigger, more engaged audience then. Particularly later at night, when the highest reblog and like activity happens. But if you want less competition, there’s not much going on in the mornings, so you could give that a shot. If you’re a brand or business, you should consider scheduling content outside standard US business hours, especially on the weekends when more people are spending more time on Tumblr. This is particularly important, because compared to other social networks like Twitter and Facebook, Tumblr is much more active on the weekends.
