If you are wondering why Tumblr just raised $85 million, all you have to do is look at its pageviews.

It recently passed 10 billion posts, and is adding 40 million more every day. According to Quantcast, which directly measures the site, Tumblr attracts 72 million visitors a month, more than half of those from outside the U.S. TechCrunch
