Tumblr is a virtual goldmine of creative, niche micro-blogs. A few weeks ago, I asked our Twitter followers to recommend their favorite funny Tumblrs, and received a number of endorsements. I rounded up the top recommendations into a short list, guaranteed to distract you for a few hours. Take a look, and let us know if we missed any.
*Fair warning, some of the Tumblrs use colorful language.
- When in Academia
- My Daguerreotype Boyfriend *By far the most popular recommendation by Twitterstorians.
- Our Presidents
- What Should Social Science Grad Students Call Me?
- Librarian Problems
- BackStory with the American History Guys
- Harry Truman Adventures
