For those of you who don't know, Tumblr is a social media site famous for its support of fandoms. It basically works as a picture/gif/text sharing site, and your personal page is called a "blog". Some people blog exclusively on Tumblr.
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 favorites! Enjoy.
Dating Tips from the Doctor and Friendship Tips from Sherlock
If you're looking for a fun fandom blog for either Doctor Who or Sherlock, these are one 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, people will ask for specific advice "answered" by one of the characters. This makes for some fantastic hilarity, naturally.
One Star Book Reviews
This Tumblr posts one-star Internet reviews of classic literature. It's sometimes funny, sometimes thought-provoking, and often rather encouraging for writers who get bad reviews. Worth a look!
Ruined Hipster Posts
This Tumblr is a favorite for people in fandoms! 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 meant to be very deep and be taken seriously. 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 in a really funny way. It's good for a lot of laughs!
Last but certainly not least, this Tumblr is run by an anonymous literary agent who collects queries that he finds particularly stupid/annoying and posts them along with snarky replies. It's terribly funny and gives you a bit more insight into the mind of the literary agent. It can also help teach you about how not to query. Check it out!
