An Intro to Tumblr
Much like Twitter, Tumblr is a social networking tool that you can't fully appreciate until you're completely immersed in it. It's used primarily for sharing pictures, links, and videos, but increasingly the microblogging site has become a platform for sharing news and building community.

The best thing about Tumblr? The dozens of images of powerful, beautiful Black women you'll come across daily. The site proves just how we take it upon ourselves to promote self-affrming images when they are nowhere to be found.

Warning: Be sure you've got some time to kill before you tackle this list. Tumblr is the prime destination for colored girls who are bored at work when Twitter isn't enough.
