Can you recommend any good Tumblrs?


I am looking for the names of some good freethinking/atheist/skeptic Tumblr pages. My criteria for “good” are centred more around quality of management than quality of content (Tumblr being more of a great grab-bag for a lot of diverse kinds of things). Surely some of you either read atheist Tumblrs or run one yourself. I am looking for some solid recommendations.

Help a brotha out?

    Sorry only tumblr I can think of that you might even be interested in is the daily otter and it stopped being a tumblr about a month ago…

    …The only tumblrs I follow are completely unrelated to any of those subjects.

    I tried tumblr, honestly I did. I had one for a couple years, just deleted it yesterday as a matter of fact.

    It’s like they took what was good about blogs, took what was good about twitter, threw those things out and combined what was left.

    Not talking about the content, just the platform.

    It also sucks if you want your stuff to actually show up in Google searches.

    At 32 I feel sometimes as if I am too old to “get” Tumblr, even though I was a rather early adopter of the interwebz. I just have a hard time understanding it. Also, there is so much NSFW content (not that I am against such content) that it makes it very limited to when I can view.

    I’ve yet to find decent content regarding atheism/skepticism. There seem to be a lot of good feminist memes that go around there, but I usually just catch those as something has been reposted a bazillion times.

    The one that I’ve found that is the most active with pictures, captures of cell phones, memes, quotes, etc. is:

    http://atheist-overdose.tumblr.com/

    By the time you get to about page 300, you’ve seen lots of duplicates. But posts come in several times a day. No intellectual conversations, but lots of laughs and groans.

    Bonus! Andrew Ti of YITR is a vocal atheist (though he seems unaware of the larger atheist community, or its issues (Link is cached, since Tumblr seems to be down)).

    Can’t. the sorts of tumblrs you describe that I follow don’t match your interests, like omgthatdress and otherworldly and nailasuarus. I very much prefer the no-theme general not-quality tumblrs of people to the limited themed ones.
