Tumblr blogs appear to be down worldwide on Wednesday, though the main site seems to be functioning, according to The Next Web.

Complaints from angry bloggers appeared through the day on both Tumblr and Twitter.

As the Daily Beast joked, "Hell hath no fury like a street-style blogger whose Tumblr isn’t working during Fashion Week."

Good news. All those needing their daily fix of Animals With Casts, Feminist Ryan Gosling, and other popular Tumblrs can now breathe a sign of relief.

Tumblr said in a written statement “We’re investigating an issue that seemed to prevent certain networks from accessing Tumblr earlier today. The incident doesn’t appear to have been widespread and should have only lasted a few minutes.”
