No matter how busy your life is, there will still come a point where you become extremely bored and you cannot stand just staring at the lizard on your ceiling. One of the best things that you can do when boredom strikes is to surf the Net. You look for ways to entertain yourself and ignore the annoying ticking of your wall clock. You can check out interesting websites that will trigger your curiosity or check out people’s profiles on your favorite social networking site. Why not create your own Tumblr, instead? If you already have your own Tumblr account, why not make some changes and make it more interesting? Besides, who would want to check out boring profiles – would you? Tumblr was founded by David Karp in 2007. It is one of the most famous social networking sites around the globe that lets users share anything they want to such as texts, photos, links, quotes, videos and music. Go and connect with your friends using Tumblr. Even better, try adding your favorite playlists on your profile so you can attract more viewers. Here are the top 10 music players for Tumblr:
