Tumblr Dumps ‘Storyboard’
Late Tuesday evening Tumblr blog, CEO David Karp, announced the shutting down of Tumblr Storyboard saying, “What we’ve accomplished with Storyboard has run its course for now, and our editorial team will be closing up shop and moving on. I want to personally thank them for their great work. And please join us in wishing them well.”
It’s ben a long hard year of trying, but they have learned that they should leave the online writing to mega giants like the New York Post, Mashable and other online journalist sites.
However, there some fantastic storyboard leaders that were nominated for the 2013 James Beard Journalism Award that will be sadly missed such as, “Cooking Their Way Through Magazine History,” “Pizza That Never Sleeps (Even in a Hurricane),” and “Move Over, Cupcakes: The Religieuse Has Arrived.”
Tumblr executive editor Jessica Bennett shared the sad news on her Tumblr acoount, hoping to find a new path, along with her let go collegues.
