NEW YORK — The popular blogging site Tumblr is working to recover from an outage that's left it out of service for at least 15 hours.

Tumblr says the problem is in one of its database clusters, or collection of databases.

New York-based Tumblr lets users post photos, text, videos and other content in short updates. It bills itself "the easiest way to blog," though on Monday morning this wasn't the case. While both Facebook and Twitter have suffered big outages in recent years, the length of Tumblr's problem is unusual.

Twitter users are complaining about the outage in English, Spanish and Japanese among other languages.
