They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but '#realtalk from your editor' suggests that a .gif file can say even more. In the wake of the massively popular 'whatshouldwecallme' tumblr, inspired spawns of the blog have been taking off in a big way. Hilariously relatable, the newest .gif-laden creation pertains to editors and those who spend their days writing professionally.

Poking fun at ever-present grammatical errors, copyright issues and otherwise bland editing issues, '#realtalk from your editor' has a cathartic vibe to it, making light of the downsides and celebrating the joys of editing. Similar to the site which inspired it, the tumblr is heavy on short video clips and light on text.

Featuring clips from 'Toddlers and Tiaras' and including plenty of Meryl Streep, the site is hilariously over-the-top and obviously comes from a place of personal experience. One can only hope that more of these addicting vent blogs are soon to come.
