Slice of life on Tumblr
September 10, 2015 2:02 PM   Subscribe

I'm having this kinda voyeuristic desire to read about the everyday experiences of other people's lives. I know that, tumblr, being the most popular form of blogging currently, has to have a bunch of people that just use it as a kind of public journal, but it's hard to sift through the reaction gifs and meme conversations. What are some of your favorite tumblrs that are mostly just people talking about their lives?

I was coming in to recommend Fosterhood as well, and there are a lot of other foster parents who post regularly about their lives, if you're interested in that. Here's a list that may or may not be up to date.

My Husband's Tumor is a blog by a woman chronicling her family's experience while her husband fought brain cancer. He has since passed away, and it is updated less frequently now, but it is very moving and worth reading the archives.
