For some it’s where you go to find GIFs, and for others it’s where you let your nerd flag fly proudly: We love Tumblr. Some use Tumblr to create: fan art, fanfiction, fanvids, or original content for a specific niche such as digital marketing for dentists. There are all different kinds of blogs to follow on Tumblr. You can follow your favorite celebrities and TV shows and fill their ask box with questions. Or follow amazing artists who create new content every day for you to drool over. Or follow fashion blogs for ideas on where to get the best deals so you can look good for work, dates, or chillin’ at home scrolling through Tumblr.
This is Lorde’s official Tumblr. It’s a refreshing, pop culture extravaganza, from cinematic idols to musicians and street style snapshots to high fashion editorials. She even takes the time to answer fan mail!
Favorite Post: Lorde reflects on 2014 in a way that’s both vulnerable and hopeful.
Favorite Post: Although she has a lot of advice posts (it’s the focus of the Tumblr), this is one of my favorite reminders about relationships.

Brooklyn Nine Nine is arguably the best comedy left on TV today, so it’s wise to have a convenient source for GIFs after new episodes air. Also Gina Linetti is basically our spirit animal.

We love all things books, so of course we’re going to follow a fellow book nerd who actually takes time to curate our kind of literary content. It’s pictures of stacks of book and bookish related things with just a dash of cute animals and funny posts.
Favorite Post: Here is the blog’s aesthetic summed up in one post, and it just happens to be my happy place.
About once a week your dashboard is inundated with more English landscape porn than you can fathom. It’s nothing but the most gorgeous photos of the English countryside, small historic towns, beautiful ocean vistas, and even a few of London-town. Nothing will make you want to grab your passport faster.
Is there anything better than tea and books? Probably not, but delightfully staged pictures of them come close. With gorgeous photos of books, tea, and coffee (shocker, right?) you’ll be dying to curl up in a comfy chair with both.
All other networks need to take a page out of the BBC’s book, because their Tumblr is unparalleled. It’s up-to-date live blogging with all new shows, it retweets fan creations, it ships your favorite pairings (particularly John/Sherlock) and the level of snark is pure perfection.
Favorite Post: Presently this one, because holy crap it’s the new “Sherlock” trailer.
