Inspired by ShortFormBlog's magnanimous endorsement of Brooklyn Mutt, we are humbly endorsing ourselves for Tumblr of the Year.
Yes, this is grotesquely self-centered. But we’ve never made anyone’s best-of list. Ever! Anyone! And we — two full-time reporters who are often preoccupied with the tasks and assignments for which we are paid — have been running this thing on the side for two and a half years now. And we’re pretty proud of it! We ask you: Is there a better newspaper-birthed Tumblr out there? Maybe, but consider voting for us anyway.
We love you.

Are push-pinned Tumblr posts more fun to unpin than to read?

Discuss. (The correct answer is “yes.”)

Overnight our follower count reached an important milestone, insomuch as we have invested this particular number with grave importance. To celebrate — and to depart from the tired, obvious, exclusionary "best Tumblrs" lists — we’re going to namecheck our fellow daily-newspaper-based Tumblrs. Bash on, you ink-stained wretches! Bash on!

Our first Tumblr meetup was grand. Thanks to all who made it so: Coatney, The Atlantic, Think Progress, I’m Remembering!, shortformblog, I’m with Kanye, PostVideo, Chrisafer and SPACESHARES; men (and woman) about town @amorrisey, @brfreed and @Erie; WaPosties @MelissaBell, @hankstuever, @MarieEOliver, @tjortenzi, @chris__richards, @ReliableSource, @greglinch and Emily Wax; and all of those we didn’t get to say hi to.

Forget Iowa.
Caucus with us tonight.
We’re vanquishing our deadlines and will be at Dodge City promptly at 6. Dan will buy a beer for the first person to arrive and say “I love the List" to him.

Hey you guys.
Join us Posties for some cocktail conversation on U Street. We want to ring in the first workweek of 2012 with the Tumblrers of the District. And hear how much you disagree with the List.
Questions? Ask us. Interested? Reblog!

urlesque:

Along with former Urlbots Lindsey Weber (her side projects SpotiFYI and Tom Hanks Wax Museum get shoutouts) and Hillary Buckholtz, and our friends Flavorpill, Ratsoff and Pop Culture Brain.

If you need new stuff to follow, you’re set.

WHY ARE WE CONTINUALLY EXCLUDED FROM THESE LISTS?

Our follower count just reached an important and completely arbitrary milestone. We feel like this dog. Super, that is. And cute. (And hungry.) We shall take this opportunity to thank each of you for your likes, reblogs and feedback: Thank you.
Want to know more about us? Ask us questions. Go here if you’re curious about the Style section (we’re not so much about fashion as we are everything else), here if you want to follow us on the Facebook, and here and here if you want to follow us on the Twitter. Also, bookmark our Web site. Or, if you’re local, order a print subscription, you crazy person!
Our only wish is that we appear at the top of some list of The Best Old-Media Tumblrs, or whatever. They keep leaving us off those lists. We’re not bitter. (We’re hungry, mostly.)
And, yes, our own favorite Tumblr post remains Oprah eats Naomi Watts.

WAIT DON’T LEAVE FOR THE WEEKEND YET.
We forgot our Tumblr’s 1st birthday. It was Wednesday. To make amends, and to celebrate, we are eating a slice of red velvet cake and an M&M cookie in front of the Tumblr, which isn’t able to ingest food. Yet.
Please reply with your well wishes. Please ask us questions or comment on what you like about us (lite criticism also accepted) or what you’d like to see more of. Go here if you want to know more about Style in general, here if you want to follow us on the Facebook, and here and here if you want to follow us on the Twitter. And thank you to you, our brilliant followers and fellow Tumblrs.
Our favorite Tumblr post of the past 367 days?
Oprah eats Naomi Watts. You’re welcome.
