Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Non-Book SItes

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Over at The Broke and the Bookish (where I also review things), we like to do this thing called Top Ten Tuesday. Every week is a theme, and everyone gets to create a list.

This week, the topic is....

Top Ten Non-Bookish Sites

Holy Crap. I didn't realize how my internet habits have slowly gravitated to bookish sites... wow. The most common sites on my chrome page are: Goodreads, Facebook, Smart Bitches Trashy Books, My blog, The Broke and the Bookish, Gmail, Photobucket and the Library. lol.

Let's see what I can dig up.

Top Ten Non-Bookish Sites

1. Fark
Fark is a new aggregation website where boys who live in their mothers basement make up headlines for popular articles. But it has some witty things sometimes, and often there are some pretty fun arguments for me to read. But mostly it keeps me updated on the news when I check it out. And sometimes give me a laugh. And sometimes more an eyeroll.

2. Post-Secret
Oh, post-secret. How I love you. I used to hang out and the community there for about a year in college. Now I just pop by for the Sunday Secrets. Still love reading them on Sundays.

3. Smart, Pretty and Awkward
I have no idea how I found this blog, and it is not something that I read every day. But it usually has some fun quotes, some good advice and occasionally fashion tips that I can listen to :)

4. Dear Girls Above Me
DGAM is a hilarious blog where Charlie quotes and comments on the two very girls who live above him. They say some really dumb things sometimes, and often the resulting commentary is quite funny.

5. Questionable Content
QC is the one web comic I follow on a regular basis.(The other comic I read when I remember is XKCD). I love Marten and all the girls at the coffee shop. The now world mixed with the future is quite entertaining.

6. Almost Fearless
Such a fun travel blog written by a woman who quit her job and her, her husband and her baby and started living around the world. It is fun to experience the world with them, especially Cole who is now two.

7. Cleolinda's LJ
I've followed Cleolinda for forever. Though she doesn't post too much anymore, when she does it is usually about movies (sometimes books). She is super intelligent and a great writer. She wrote the Movies in 15 Minutes blog as well as some super popular twilight commentaries.

8. Mark Watches
I don't check out Mark Watches as much as I used to, but that there is a fun community. Mark watches (and reads!) things an episode at a time and then comments on them. He started with Twilight, I jumped in at Harry Potter, but now does a ton of different things. But! Beware! There is a heavy spoiler policy, because the fun of it is that he goes into these things blind so we get to see it like we are watching it for the first time.

9. Woot!
Woot is a daily deal site. I actually had to stop going to shirt.woot! because I was going broke with all the cute clothes! Nooo! They have NEW. CUTE. CLOTHES! I am going to go broke making this list.

10. That Guy with the Glasses
I love this site. It has music and movie video reviews. I ended up on this site because of a link to Nostalgia Chick (The Smurfette Principle) and stayed for the Nostalgia Critic (Moulin Rouge). Then I expanded to Paw's reviews of Musical Movies and Todd in the Shadows Pop Song (and now One Hit Wonders) reviews! Love this site!

Honorable mentions, and also the obvious, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest. Done.
