One of the blogs I find myself visiting daily, and often on mutliple occasions, is the fantastic Collective History. It is frequently updated with vivid photographs accompanied with the background information that is so often lacking on tumblr, but that acts here as a daily historical research springboard for history passionates like me. Enjoy it here.
