Tumblr Creates Storyboard to Curate Its Vast Content

Tumblr has fast become one of the largest websites around. With thousands of blogs posted per day, the normal user will find it hard to sift through it to fin great content. Tumblr has realized that and devised Storyboard to help out.

Storyboard will be posting regular features from the Tumblr community with an interesting story to share. It can range from anything to highlighting content from writers, musicians, animators, scientists, comedians, whoever. The Tumblr-launched platform will feature one story per day. It is also a social network of sorts, opening windows for in-depth conversations between users.

“We could never possibly tell everyone’s story, even if we told 100 stories a day,” Tumblr Editor-in-Chief Chris Mohney said in a video post via storyboard.tumblr.com. “But we can help bring people to light that one sector of the community may never encounter through their natural organic reading of Tumblr.”

Storyboard launched with features from former R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe, The New York Times, Afghanistan, and the design mechanics of the Tumblr dashboard. If you only have time to browse the creme de la creme of Tumblr posts, Storyboard is the place to go.

“There’s never enough time or space to tell every story, but there are many ways to tell it.” Storyboard encourages submissions as well, just create a Tumblr post with the #storyboard tag.

Chris Mohney, formerly senior vice president of content at BlackBook Media, is the editor-in-chief and Jessica Bennett, previously a senior writer editor at Newsweek and The Daily Beast, is the executive editor for Storyboard.
