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.

The History of English Podcast

by Simon Wheeler

As an Englishman I find the content not just incredibly interesting but also very fulfilling as I learn the historical origins of the words, grammar and syntax that I use - almost without thinking - every day. It's given me a real insight into my own culture and the way that I communicate with ot...

Love the History of English podcast and its website. The maps are great and the audio samples, like the Gregorian chants or "Sumer Is Icumen In" add so much to an already terrific podcast.

I also bought from the website the Beowulf audiobook, which was terrific, and my husband boug...

Very much enjoy The History of Byzantium podcast and website. I like the maps on the site and the ability to buy special episodes from the site.

I wish there was an easier way to get to specific episodes, or at least specific maps. Still, the site is so much better than many simil...

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.
