Hey thanks for the follow. I’ve just started getting into UX so your timing is immaculate! Any other Tumblrs you'd recommend following?

No problem! No time like the present right?

As a primer I would follow 52 weeks of UX  & UX myths . Also I would just track all posts tagged with UX & User experience. All you do is search one of those and on the results page they will give you the option to track the tag. You will find some great posts and people to follow.

Good luck and if you have any more questions don’t hesitate to ask.
