For those of you who don't know, Tumblr is a social media site very famous for its fandom-ing. Lots of fans of TV shows and movies and books on there. It basically works as a picture/gif/text sharing site, and your personal page is called a "blog". Some people blog exclusively on Tumblr.
Now, I had a Tumblr for a while, but I became intimidated by the culture there, so I switched to Pinterest. However, there are some Tumblr blogs that I really like, and I still check them out. So today I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite blogs on Tumblr! Enjoy.

Dating Tips from the Doctor and Friendship Tips from Sherlock
If you're looking for a good, fun fandom blog for either Doctor Who or Sherlock, these are the way to go. Run by the same person, these two Tumblrs take fan suggestions and create "tips" from these two protagonists on the two subjects they're probably worst at: for the Doctor, romance, and for Sherlock, friendship. Occasionally, as well, people will ask for specific advice then "answered" by one of the characters. This makes for some fantastic hilarity, naturally.
One Star Book Reviews
This Tumblr posts one-star reviews of classic literature gathered from le Internet. Sometimes funny, sometimes thought-provoking, and often rather encouraging for writers who may get bad reviews. Worth a look.
Ruined Hipster Posts
This Tumblr is a favorite for people in fandoms! On this Tumblr, the bloggers collect Tumblr posts that have been "ruined" by a fandom reference of some kind. Often the posts that are ruined are "hipster", or otherwise meant to be very deep and be taken very seriously, which is why it's so funny. The Big Three feature predominantly (Doctor Who, Sherlock, Supernatural), but all kinds of fandoms show up, and some posts aren't even fandom-related, just hijacked/ruined in a really funny way. It's good for a lot of laughs! *Language warning*
Last but certainly not least, my personal favorite: SlushPile Hell! This Tumblr is run by an anonymous literary agent who collects queries that he finds particularly stupid/annoying, and posts them on his Tumblr along with snarky replies. It's terribly funny and gives you a bit more insight into the mind of the literary agent. Also, if you're completely inexperienced, it helps teach you about how not to query. Also, if you do know how to query, it makes you feel better, because even if you're consistently being rejected, at least your queries don't look like this. Checkitout!
That's that! Thank you for reading! Come back next time for a post on the question of likeable characters.
