Top Ten Tuesday- favorite non book related sites

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely girls over at The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks topic is my favorite blogs/sites that are not book related. I don't think I have 10 sites I go to that aren't book related sadly. I do not spend a lot of time online when it's not book/facebook related.

1. Facebook:
This is a big 'no duh' but still. I spend a lot of time on here. More than I should

This site is so handy. I'm one of those type of people when I'm watching a tv show or movie and I recognize an actor but can't place where else I've seen them, I have to look it up and know otherwise it will keep bugging me. IMDB is great for that.

3. Hyperbole and a Half:
This blog is so freaking funny! Allie is hysterical and when I first read the post she did about moving to Oregon and how her dogs acted, I was laughing so hard I had tears streaming down my face and a stitch in my side. My parents thought I was going crazy. Good times.

4. Cute Overload:
This site is exactly what the name says it is. Adorable pictures/videos of animals. How can you not love it?

5. 1,000 Awesome Things:
A while back, a guy decided that every day for a thousand days, he was going to post about little things that make you smile and are all around awesome. He's recently finished and there are two books out for it as well. The things this guy comes up with are great. Just go and read the list of things he's posted about and laugh.
Here is my personal favorite:

6. Youtube:
I'm a huge Youtube junkie. I love love love following vloggers. My favorites being John and Hank Green (Vlogbrothers), Charlie McDonnell (Charlieissocoollike), Dan Howell (Danisnotonfire), and Phil Lester (AmazingPhil). I've pretty much watched all their videos...multiple times... and get excited when any of them post new videos. Oh! And I love John and Hank's new videos, CrashCourse in which John teaches you about world history and Hank about science. I've learned more from them than I have in all my years I spent in school. Sad really.

7. Google:
Come on, you know you love it too and probably didn't think to count this as a site, but it is. This site is so cool that it has now become a noun, a verb, an adjective,  and all those other lovely English grammar words.

8. Hotmail:
Yup, I'm putting down my email provider has a favorite site. I check my email non stop.

9. Etsy:
I think this is by far one of the coolest sites ever. You can pretty much find anything you want on it. I personally love searching Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Hunger Games, and Mortal Instruments on that site and seeing all the super cool and nerdy fan stuff people have created. It's amazing.

10. Snorgtees:
This site has the coolest shirts ever! So many nerdy shirts! I pretty much want them all. I'm a screen Tee junkie. It's fun to go on there and see if you understand all the references the shirts are making. Like all the Doctor Who ones! Yeah!

  1. Ohhh ... I love Etsy too! I could spend tons of money there, seriously, I could. And needless to say there are plenty of great shops who make book inspired things :-)!
    The 1.000 Awesome Things site was new to me (so, thanks for sharing) and now I'm off to spend a lil more time there ...


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
