What are your favourite blogs on Tumblr?
*Clears throat* Oh boy, here we go. Sit tight!
@sonofhistory - One of the first blogs that I followed. I noticed immediatly how good the admin was when it came to being accurate when answering questions in asks. I think this blog is an inspiration for most history blogs, and rightly so!
@bantarleton - I must admit, this blog was part of the reason I started my segment on history facts. I love the fact that they post all sorts of pictures with great captions about the 18th century.
@bbcphile - Ok, but have you read @bbcphile‘s Hornblower fanfiction? Because if not, you’re missing out. It’s fantastic, and unless I’m mistaken, a few more chapters have been added on the latest gripping series, Harboured and Encompassed. Yes, yes, yes!
@ploddingthroughthepresidents - I love both the tumblr blog and the actual online blog. I wish I had this much dedication when it comes to reading about history. Also, the admin has some great insight on the founding fathers.
@marq-de-laf - So much amazing quality information on one of my favourite historical figures! Keep it up. People need to know more about the real Lafayette.
@whatsaflyingjib - This is the place I get most of my ship pictures. I love Age of Sail blogs, and this one is especially good. Also, a rare, actually active source of Aubreyad stuff.
@cslewiscarroll - Literally, this blog is the reason I started reading up on Lord Byron. And, as I now know, Lord Byron is fabulous. So go and give them a follow!
@wolfecalmplusplus - They don’t always post history stuff, but when they do, it’s really good. Also, unless I’m mistaken, the username is a combination of the surnames of James Wolfe and the Marquis de Montcalm. I love them??? Unless, of course, that isn’t the case. But I hope it is.
@greetingsdr - This blog is incredible, seriously. The art is so good, and most of it is fan art for Washington’s Spies, which makes it even better.
@longmaytheysail - Dear old vessels indeed. As I may have mentioned, I love ships. This blog is a wonderful place to find wonderful ship pictures. Case closed.
@fuckyeahnaturalphilosophy - The perfect combination of Age of Sail, various sea creatures, and the Aubreyad. I think they reblogged a post of mine once and I was duly flattered.
I could list so many more. The history fandom is full of incredible writers and historians. Also, this doesn’t even touch on my favourite roleplaying blogs, but the list would grow ever longer, so I’ll stop.
I hope this answers your question!
