Our Week In The Web: October 31, 2014

This article is more than 5 years old.

We thought it might be worthwhile on this Halloween Friday to talk to you all a little bit about our efforts on Tumblr. Many of you may follow us on Facebook or Twitter -- and we thank you for that! — but there aren't that many of you on Tumblr. It might be a matter of our audience's digital habits — more of you reach us through Facebook than any other source, beyond basic Google searches — but we think the fact the Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg "tries to keep abreast of the latest that’s on the tumblr" means that you, too, can Tumbl with us. We share links, pictures, gifs — sometimes related to our on-air content, but other times, not -- and we want to have you join us for the ride. It's a work in progress, to be sure. If you're on Tumblr, follow OnPointRadio, or visit OnPointRadio.tumblr.com and see what we're up to. We think this can be a fun space for a different sector of our audience, and we hope you can be a part of that audience soon.
