I’d been planning to let the issue of the Nice Guys of OK Cupid blog on Tumblr slide. [NOTE: The blog has since been taken down.] It is pretty depressing from every perspective. I’d squabbled and grumbled about it on Twitter with a few people, and then thankfully the Christmas break pushed it out of my mind.

If it passed you by, the Tumblr scours the dating/social networking site OK Cupid for profiles of men and then posts their pictures (without permission) alongside selected quotes. The typical entry shows a less than attractive guy with a few quotes from his profile proclaiming himself a ‘nice guy’ who is fed up of being ‘friendzoned’ and then a ‘wrong’ answer from the set profile questionnaires such as “Should women feel an obligation to shave their legs? Yes.” Keep reading »

Some twisted soul up in Maine has gone and done it now: She’s created the L.L. Bean Boyfriend blog, full of men in cozy sweaters and hiking boots professing their love for you. As the Tumblr notes, “He will build you a table and then have sex with you on it.” Sorry, but these guys are giving me major creep vibes — they’re a little too Bon Iver Erotic Stories for my taste. But hey, if you want a guy who will take you for foraging walks in the woods and build you theremins and whatnot, then go for it. I’ll just be washing the douche vibes off me in the corner.

The 15 Best Nail Art Blogs

One of the best things about being online editors is that we get to spend hours perusing the web for inspiration (even though this may not be best for our eyesight or posture). Nonetheless, there are tons of budding makeup, hair and skincare ”experts” sharing their straightforward reviews and in-your-face tutorials. Impressed by their serious skills and online superstardom, we’ve decided to round up the best beauty blogs.

This week, we’re kicking things off with the crème de la crème in DIY nail art. From Miss Ladyfinger (who can transform any runway design to her digits) to London’s WAH Nails (famous for their mani mash-ups), you’ll get motivated to switch up your average manicure.

9-Year-Old Blogs Her School Lunches, World Is Horrified

If you’re feeling less than enthusiastic about the tuna sandwich waiting for you in the office fridge, you might want to take a look at NeverSeconds, a food blog curated by nine-year-old Martha Payne. For the past month, Martha has borrowed her father’s camera and diligently documented the lunch offerings at her Scottish primary school, including important stats like health ratings and how many hairs she found in her food. She also often complained of not feeling full: “I’m a growing kid and I need to concentrate all afternoon and I can’t do it on 1 croquette. Do any of you think you could?” Her daily musings soon gained an international following (over 1.5 million pageviews so far), a Twitter shoutout from Jamie Oliver, and school lunch photo submissions from other kids all over the world. It also effected a major change in her school’s policy: yesterday, Martha announced that her cafeteria was now allowing unlimited side dishes. Martha, keep doing your thing, and if you ever visit the States, we’re totally taking you out to lunch. [NeverSeconds]

I feel a responsibility to let you know when I spend a stupid amount of time on any given Tumblr. Today, I have dedicated myself to Yo, Should I Dump This Asshole? It’s pretty self explanatory: people ask if they should dump the asshole they’re dating and Yo responds. I’ve compiled a few of my favorites here. The guy who likes Ayn Rand but gives good BJs? Yo says dump. Not so sure I agree. The guy who doesn’t like trees or sun? DUMP FOR SURE. The guy who’s convinced he’s a vampire? Who’s asking? I can’t even. I wish this site was around when I went out with the guy who said all he needed in life was the company of his cat. I would have loved to see Yo’s response. Obviously, I dumped this man. I hate cats.

Tumblr Blog Of The Day: Bon Iver Erotic Stories

What happens when you allow your imagination to fantasize about soulfully smug indie singer songwriter Bon Iver? The perfectly twee — heirloom tomatoes and spiderwebs! — erotic snippets compiled on the just launched “Bon Iver Erotic Stories” blog. This blog is hilarious because, as Julie explains, sex with Bon Iver would probably be the worst. “The room would smell like cedar and it would be SO COLD,” Julie just shuddered. “I bet he would, like, smell faintly of sardines and there’d be a corner of his bedroom reserved for his ARTISINAL KOMBUCHA OPERATION.” Anyway, see more Bon Iverotica after the jump…

I’m not a big fan of the tech blog Gizmodo. While I am a self-professed geek-girl who loves technology, I often find their tone to be a little too snarky, a little too condescending, and the comments to be some of the worst the troll world can offer. And after the nasty Magic the Gathering article last year, it was all the incentive I needed to move on to other tech sites.

That is, until my husband sent me a link. “Pinterest is Tumblr for Ladiez”! And I officially hit the ceiling. Keep reading »

To the person who created the Downton Abbeyoncé Tumblr:

I bow down to you. I am humbled by your brilliance. If this was 1914, and you were a member of nobility, I would serve you with pride and honor, like Mr. Carson serves the Earl of Grantham. 

Yours,

Amelia
