Tumblr began as a blogging site for sharing photos, links and videos from around the web, but as its popularity has increased, it has become so much more than that.

Tumblr has gained recognition for the sheer number of posts focusing on current events, such as the Ferguson unrest, feminism, LGBTQIA rights and politics. Due to the number of people using Tumblr for their own interests, this important information is being made accessible to a wider audience, who may not have the access or capacity to learn about such things through mainstream news, due to geographical restrictions, age or culture. As a result, Tumblr is a place where everyone is supported and accepted, with members often posting objective, informed posts on various matters.

On a lighter note, it’s an amazing place for fans of movies, TV shows, books or games to communicate with others who share their admiration. Known as ‘fandoms’, these people discuss storylines, their own ideas, share videos, imagery – anything they want, ensuring fans feel like they’re not alone with their obsession. Occasionally, things get a little out of control, with the relentless trend of ‘shipping’ and ‘OTPs’, but the amount of users engaging in these discussions is outstanding.

Yes it sounds silly, but can something that has created such a strong online community really be so terrible? Long live Tumblr.

Tumblr is a great social network in a lot of ways. It does raise a lot of awareness about current issues, politics, and other important matters. It's easy to use, has a fairly simple design, and is a great place to find just about anything, from jokes to pictures to infographics.

Just like any other social network, you should take what is said with a grain of salt. Tumblr claims to be very welcoming, open minded, etc, but there are a lot of extremely hateful people on the website; basically, if the Tumblr collective decides that you did something they didn't like, it's a very serious matter, because they're known to bully users until they remove their blogs or even put up their personal information for people to use as they please.

Tumblr is still a great place to get informed on a number of social issues and share interesting and informative posts; it can be very addictive and eat up all your time if you're not careful.

Dear Travelzoo,

This is a love letter. Are you beautiful? Mmmm... you're pretty but let's not be hyperbolic and say you're gorgeous. I mean, you're definitely not fugly or anything! (4 stars!) You could try a little harder but we all know that it's what's on the inside that counts....

Such a fantastic podcast!
Duncan has a knack for narrative history, taking all the disparate stories and facts and weaving it all together into a story that's fun and engaging.
It's also very well researched.
Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in history.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.
