After much debate over here at CC, we just can’t seem to figure out which Tumblr is the best. I mean, we love GIFs but are GIFs enough? Do GIFS a good blog make? Or is it cute animals or is the right kind of cute animals? Are animals and GIFs played out, should the award for best Tumblr be given to the best writer, the funniest “internet personality” or the person who can write the most amazing captions? No – no, the best Tumblr is the one with the best concept, and if Ryan Gosling is a part of that concept then that certainly helps.
The CC editors just can’t seem to figure it out. We talked to our amazing interns and lovely writers and the best we could do is narrow the competition down to nine categories. So, we need your help! The Candy Guild Awards (yes, we’re just like the SAGs) are upon us and it’s time to cast your vote for the best Tumblr in each category! Let us know in the comments if we’ve left anything out. Voting starts today and ends at midnight on February 25th. Check back here on the 26th for all the winners!!
