Here at TIME, we’re working on a guide to the best Tumblrs out there—and we need your help.

What Tumblr can’t you live without? Whether it’s news, fashion, design or animals wearing clothes, we want to hear your favorites.

Reply to this post with your picks. (and include the URL) We’ll mark popular suggestions as “Readers’ Choice” in our final list.

Time did a list like this a year and a half ago, and we got a nod then. It was cool. But if we had to choose again and could only pick one that’s never been on Time’s list, we’d totally say this site.

I was also LUCKY enough to be featured last year. Also, Shortform’s recommendation of Laughterkey I fully endorse!

Last week’s issue also caused considerable consternation among bloggers and readers, who objected to our putting the protests in Egypt inside our domestic edition and on the cover overseas. “Why is anxiety the most pressing issue in the U.S. while the Egyptian revolution gets front-page treatment internationally?” read a typical e-mail. Observers at ShortFormBlog analyzed a year’s worth of our covers and concluded each edition gets the same amount of hard news, give or take an issue or two. We’re glad to be held to high expectations, especially when the bar is set by one of our own editions.

Good on Time for directly responding to the controversy.
