Tumblr is one of the most successful websites to date with over a million followers in different countries. But amidst the quirky memes, creative artworks, beautiful photos and never ending amount of fanfictions, there lies a small community of people who blogs about studying. Yes, you heard that right, *studying*! Welcome to the Studyblr Community!
What is Studyblr?
Studyblr is a relatively new yet growing community in the world of Tumblr that's focused on studying. Short for study tumblr, these are blogs created specifically for studying, whether it's aesthetically pleasing notes, school hacks, and motivational quotes—anything to keep the readers motivated in studying.
Here are some basic studyblr lingo that you may encounter:
Study inspiration. This tag is usually seen in school notes.
Bullet journal. If you are more on the creative side, this one if for you since the bujo gives you more freedom to create it the way you want.
Reference post. This is usually used to tag a post that one might use in the future.
Tagged post. This means that another studyblr has tagged you in a post, it could be an artwork or a tag challenge where you answer questions so that people will get to know you more.
If you want to focus on something more specific, there are also other branches of studyblr in Tumblr:
Language Tumblr. If you are currently studying a language, whether it is Korean, Japanese, or maybe German. Langblrs help each other out by swapping flashcards of terminologies, or sometimes they'll create a list of basic words to learn.
Medicine Tumblr. For the med students out there, this one is for you. Medblrs would usually post colorful and easy to understand illustrations or charts.
Application Tumblr. Appblrs are mostly for those applying for college. They would give suggestions from finding the right college for you to what to bring on your first day.
But with all these things in mind, don't let it fool you. Studyblr is not always about getting good grades or having perfect notes. It's also about being real. Another known tag in the community is #StudyblrsGetReal. This tag shows what really goes on behind the perfect photos. It's the all-nighters, it's the messy desk, it's the jumbled up notes. It's the rant post about piled up schoolworks, and it's the pressure to have great grades. The Studyblr community is not perfect, and that's what's great about this little community. We know how hard school/college can be, that's why we help each other out and be each other's support and motivation.
