One of the problems with the massive growth of Tumblr is keeping up.

(Insert your downtime joke here.)

It’s overwhelming, you know? 

Well, we’re here to help. Hopefully.

We’ve scoured the Internet (read: Im’ed around our office) to find a dozen tumblrs you should be following.

The options range from news and charts to design and photographs. And beautiful women. Of course, beautiful women.
