It’s been only 15 days Tumblr sprinted past 19 million blogs, and now the micro blogging service is now hosting over 20 million blogs upon their servers.
Tumblr’s latest feat puts the service within striking distance of WordPress.com, who recently passed the 20 million blog milestone last month.
According to Quantcast, Tumblr has recently jumped up a spot to 33 (previously they were ranked 34 out of the top million sites), which puts Tumblr between WalMart and Reference.com (who hold the 32nd and 34th top spots, respectively).
Tumblr has received a lot of media attention, as the service (or rather the community) was credited with helping a man retrieve his stolen MacBook as well as partnering with SoundCloud (a popular service amongst music fans).
While the micro blogging service isn’t as advanced as rivals like WordPress and Blogger, Tumblr seems to have found a way to not only appeal to teenagers, but also businesses, media companies and (surprisingly) a government agency.
