My Favorite Tumblogs

by Joseph Akbrud


Tumblr has quickly become my favorite social network.  It features many of the best aspects of other sites while maintaining a unique identify of its own.  Its popularity and reach rival Facebook, its photography is on par with Instagram and Flickr, and its iOS and Android apps are arguably the most intuitive and well designed of any major social network.  Below you’ll find a list of my favorite Tumblogs.
