The Tumblr blog "How Do I Put This Gently?" used animated GIFs from movies and television shows to describe life situations. The blog stopped updating in October of 2014, but old posts continue to be available.
The author of the blog never revealed her name, identifying herself only as a female graduate student. The format of the blog usually involved posts of a one-sentence description of some aspect of the author's life followed by one or more animated GIFs. In her final post, the author revealed that she was no longer updating the blog due to her engagement and job.
