6 Excellent Baha’i Tumblogs Worth Reading

May 10, 2012, in Articles > Baha'i Life, by


Tumblr is an online service that lets you create a very trendy minimal sort of blog where you can post up quotes, images, links, video, audio and longer form posts. The service is free to use and wildly popular. In fact if you’ve ever wanted to start your own blog, then a Tumblog is a pretty cool way to do so.

There are already lots of Baha’is on Tumblr, so I went looking for a few Tumblogs to showcase. Much to my delight, I found lots of interesting blogs and became totally engrossed and lost reading them all. Eventually I managed to pull myself back out to finish this post, so I’m happy to present six of the best I came across.

If you’re a Tumblr user you can choose to ‘follow’ these and other Tumblogs, and if you’re just a casual browser like myself, then you can just bookmark them! Either ways I highly recommend supporting them, and if you know of more please do leave a comment and link!


1. Little Miss Conceptions

LittleMissConceptions is the Tumblog of a self described Afro-Persian Baha’i Advocate living in South Africa. She posts up a variety of things (this is a personal blog) including lots of interesting thoughts, quotes, stories and posts about the Baha’i Faith which you can jump to by browsing her posts tagged ‘Baha’i Faith’.

You can easily get lost in this site as there are tons of interesting posts and the ‘related posts’ feature means you can just go skipping through her archives. A really interesting find!

2. ‘Serve’ – the Junior Youth Edition

Serve – the Junior Youth Edition, is a Tumblog of photos, quotes, videos, stories and just generally interesting stuff to do with Junior Youth. It’s a fairly new blog started by ‘two girls from the bottom of Africa’ – one of whom is the same person behind LittleMissConceptions!

The Tumblog encourages submissions, so if you have something to share that’s relevant to JY, head over to their submission page.

3. Baha’i History in Postcards

A gorgeous Tumblog by a Baha’i who has set out to document and share postcards from ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s visit to North America. There aren’t a lot of posts, but the ones that are there are fascinating. Not only an interesting Tumblog to visit, but a very worthwhile project to contribute to!

4. Baha’i Faith Quotes

The Word of God is the essential daily spiritual sustenance every Baha’i needs, so this lovely little Tumblog is worth following if you are a Tumblr user (the quotes will appear in your Tumblr dashboard!) The site does what it says and provides lots of inspiring quotes from the Baha’i writings.

5. US Baha’i Video Library

We’ve previously linked to lots of the US Baha’i Community’s videos on Vimeo here on Baha’i Blog, but this Tumblog is not just the videos. There are also sneak peeks at upcoming videos, interesting links, photos and more. Definitely worth a visit!

6. FUNDamentals

FUNDamentals is an initiative from the US Baha’i Office of the Treasurer with the catchphrase of being where the spiritual and material meet. It’s quite a quirky little blog with links, quotes, videos and even memes. It’s actually a lot more interesting than I was ever expecting!

Oh, what a nice thing to say about my little Postcards on Tumblr page, which has been neglected with all the Centenary tasks at hand lately. I have also been uploading postcard images on Pinterest as well as a collection about Baha’i artist Juliet Thompson as I’ve been finding them.

My larger Baha’i Media task has been keeping up the official Baha’i House of Worship of North America facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/BahaiTempleNorthAmerica) with Centenary images and info and also the Facebook, Twitter and Google+ for Wilmette Institute. Social Media tasks are just never done.

If you every want to write an article about the Wilmette Institute or it’s online courses, I would be quite happy to oblige.
