Why to Start a Tumblr Study Account

Recently, I
decided to start a Tumblr study account, also known as a “
studyblr” account. My friend has her own and mentioned it in conversation, which got me thinking about it. I finally
decided to organize myself and get the account going. I know what you’re thinking, doesn’t that seem so last year? I
do have to admit I was
pretty late on the trend of
studyblr accounts, but now that I’m a part of the community it just feels right. 

 

    
The idea of a
studyblr account may seem
pretty self-explanatory-basically, you post about things to do with studying and school. But
when it comes to making posts, the possibilities are endless. Some people (like me so far) like to post pictures of their notes or where they’re studying with a bit of information about how their day has been going. Other people like to post tips and advice on how to study best and deal with a school environment. You can even open questions to your followers or make some funny posts. You can be creative and come up with your own ideas, which is one
of the reasons I love having a
studyblr. 

 

    Even if you don’t have many followers, a
studyblr account is still a great outlet to discuss school. People want to seem confident about their schoolwork and sometimes, they don’t talk about their problems or ask for help when they need it. With a
studyblr account, you’re surrounded by people who care about the same things that you do.
Additionally, this is an environment where you probably don’t know most people and can be anonymous in asking your questions. For me, it’s been very freeing to talk about how drained I’ve been my first week and the mistakes I made in preparing for this semester. 

 

    That’s one of the best parts of being a part of the
studyblr community-it’s a judgement-free environment where you can learn from your mistakes and be accountable for your learning. It reminds you to stay on top of school while helping you reflect on what works best for you when studying or completing an assignment. Everyone wants to help you succeed
 as well, and you can learn from other people who have similar problems
when it comes to school. It’s all about getting better and having an open mindset. 

 

    Finally, and maybe the most important point of all, it’s just fun! I love seeing people interact with my posts and welcome me into the community. Taking pictures of my notes and my favourite study spots on campus has been a
really 
fun creative experience. People even make friends over
studyblr accounts through shared interests. And it’s a place where you can geek out over that one class you just love when your friends may
be tired of hearing about it every single day. It’s something that I feel I have ownership over, and I get to have creative control of something when I don’t have a lot of time to start a new project for myself. 

 

    I really recommend creating a
studyblr account, it’s been such a fun experience and I enjoy seeing how people work and organize themselves. It’s super helpful
 as well, so even if you don’t want to create an account for yourself, I would suggest interacting with some
 as well. And you can start with mine! If you have Tumblr, my
studyblr account is @coffee-study-coffee
 . Happy studying!
