Fandom Tumblr of the Week: Eff Yeah Portal
When you go looking for fandoms on Tumblr, you’re bound to encounter some pretty enthusiastic folks. One of the most common ways to express that enthusiasm on Tumblr is to start up a blog with a title starting with “F*ck Yeah.” We try to keep things reasonably PG-13 around here, so when I feature a blog with such a title, I’m going to affectionately edit its name to “Eff Yeah,” but the URL will remain intact. Today is the first time we’ve featured an Eff Yeah blog as our Fandom Tumblr of the Week, and Cave Johnson probably wouldn’t appreciate my alteration of the blog’s name.
Theme or gimmick: There’s no particular gimmick here. The blog simply is a clearinghouse for all sorts of awesome Portal-related geekery!
When it started: April 4, 2010

Why it’s great: Eff Yeah Tumblrs typically are collections of reblogged animated gifs, meme pics, and other assorted Internet goodness related to the fandom. Eff Yeah Portal stands out by having a great portion of its content consist of fan art, Portal-related crafts, and fan created videos. Here at Fandomania we’re all about fan-made works, so this blog is right up our alley. You can find everything at Eff Yeah Portal from Portal-customized Xbox 360 controllers to photos of turret-shaped cookies.
