Anthony De Rosa

I did two great events earlier in the evening, but the best part was walking from the first to the second with Anthony De Rosa, known as soupsoup on Tumblr.

The guy has been called the "King Of Tumblr" by the New York Times. He is one of the top followed people on Tubmlr, which by now is the biggest blogging platform in the world, way bigger than Blogger or Wordpress.

He has about 25,000 followers. The thing is it is much harder to acquire followers on Tumblr than it is on Twitter.

I asked him how he did it. He said, oh, I got in early, and it just grew organically. He did not talk about the daily hard work he still puts into it. Just follow him, and you will get a good idea.
