tumblr blogsAre you big fans of Tumblr? Here at MakeUseOf, we certainly are. The blogging platform brings together the idea of blogging together with social networking and has become home to some of the most creative, entertaining, humourous and thoughtful posts we’ve ever come across. With an easy-to-use backend that lends itself to both creating new content and sharing content that you like, it is home to some of the most viral content on the Web.

The sheer amount of content on Tumblr, which makes it a joy to browse (as well as  very easy to lose hours of your day in the blink of an eye), sometimes you really do have to filter through a lot of repetitive content to get to the good stuff. For that reason, we’ve put together lists of recommended Tumblr blogs that we think you should be following. We’ve already introduced you to 8 Tumblr blogs every writer and book lover should follow 8 Tumblr Blogs Every Writer & Book Lover Should Follow 8 Tumblr Blogs Every Writer & Book Lover Should Follow Tumblr is known as being a great blogging platform for visual content, and is a photographer's smorgasbord of just about everything you could possibly imagine.

Even for those of you who aren’t fans of GIFs are going to love this one. The blog is an endless series of GIFs with animals showing a more sly, or even downright mean, side to them, whether to each other, to the people around them, and in some bizarre cases, even to themselves.

Kim Jong Il Looking at Things

Sadly Kim ong Il’s passing has brought this Tumblr to an end, but no list of this kind would be complete without it. The last time it was updated was 3 months ago, but that said, if you haven’t taken a look at Kim Jon Il Looking at Things it in the past, there’s a ton of great content to scroll through. As the blog’s creator (an art director from Lisbon), says:

It does exactly what it says on the tin. Pictures of kim jong-il. looking at things. Why is it so funny? I have no idea either.

The sheer absurdity (and variety) of things being looked at certainly makes for an amusing blog. You’ll find him observing everything from fish to tights. And if you want to take the experience offline with you, you can always order the book, so that Kim Jong Il looking at things is available any time you want it.

I Love Charts

Literally Unbelievable

great tumblr blogs

Literally Unbelievable piggy-backs on one of the funniest websites out there – the satirical news site The Onion – and trawls for social media posts of people (mostly Facebook users) who fell for The Onion’s tricks and think that their articles are for real. The accompanying commentary on The Onion’s articles, together with the comments these posts receive can make for hours of hilarious entertainment. Updated multiple times on a daily basis, you’ll probably find yourself going back to this one a lot.

Perez Hamilton

Ever wondered what a gossip rag would look like in the 16th century? Look no further than Perez Hamilton. Designed as a spin-off of the popular gossip blog Perez Hilton, Perez Hamilton is full of salacious rumors and the “hottest gossip” ranging from the 1400’s to the 1700’s. The really awesome thing about Perez Hamilton is that (unlike its source of inspiration) it actually is good for something – it’s actually historically accurate and provides a unique way to find out more about the history and founding of the United States of America.

#WhatShoulWeCallMe

great tumblr blogs

#WhatShouldWeCallMe, the brainchild of a pair of 24-year-old law students, the Tumblr is filled with a hilarious combination of memes and GIFs that will have you cracking up. While a lot of the jokes are actually what they describe as inside jokes you’ll actually find a lot that you can relate to.

When Parents Text

Another one of those that does exactly what it says on the label, When Parents Text is a treasure trove of amusing texts from mums and dads around the world. In their own words:

This blog is dedicated to the trials and errors that come when a parent handles a cellphone.

WPT also offers a free iPhone app which lets you take all of the hilarity with you on the go. That’s not all – there’s tons of WPT merchandise to choose from including a book, hoodies, mugs, aprons and more.

 T-Rex Trying

One way in which T-Rex Trying really sets itself apart from its competition is that it’s all original content. Hugh Murphy has put together an incredible collection of cartoons of T-Rex trying to do things – from trying to use crutches to being a matador.  And yes – there’s a book.

Dear Coquette

tumblr blogs

Dear Coquette is something like an advice column gone wrong. In their own words:

Shady advice from a raging bitch who has no business answering any of these questions.

You can even submit your own questions and you could have the pleasure of having it answered ever so publicly. Dear Coquette, as you can tell by the description of the blog, is certainly not for the lighthearted.

    The biggest problem with Tumblr is avoiding all the pron blogs. Even with filters turned on, they still show up.

    Well, my contribution to your list, is admittedly for a very specific target audience. But, for fans of Bleach the Japanese Manga/ Anime, Bleach Lists (http://bleachlists.tumblr.com/) is hilarious. Also the bleachlistsgirl take requests and updates at least 4-5 times a day.I highly recommend if you're a fan of the series.
