My Favourite Websites

I am rather heavily addicted to the internet.  Yes, that’s right.  I said addicted because it’s true. If I had to go without the internet I would probably shrivel up and die.  Ok maybe that’s an exaggeration, but I would definitely get twitchy.

So I thought I would share some of my favourite websites with you.

Facebook: I love facebook.  I spend way too much time there.  Sometimes it can be a frustrating place, but it allows me to keep in touch with my family and friends, so that makes it worth all the annoying game requests and bullshit posts.

Metafilter: I have apparently been a member of metafilter since 2001.  That feels incredible to me. First, because who knew anything on the internet would last that long?! And Second, who knew I had enough interest to keep going somewhere for that long? What is Metafilter you ask? It’s a community blog featuring links to the “best of the web” and members commentary on said links.  I really enjoy the content I find there.

Reddit/r/Relationships: Reddit can be a cesspool of awfulness; I’ll be the first one to admit it.  But if you know where to go, it can also be endlessly entertaining. Reddit has a subreddit (read: forum) for EVERYTHING.  I swear to god if you want to talk about it, it’s somewhere on Reddit. Why do I like /r/relationships specifically? Because Relationships is all about people having relationship trouble.  It is like a train wreck you can’t look away from.  And let’s be honest, it makes me feel good about being single.

Tumblr: For my freakishly huge addiction to all things fandom, particularly for TV show supernatural.

S.M. Carriere’s Blog: The upfront is this is a friend of mine’s blog.  I’d be remiss to not include it though because I check it almost every day.  S.M. is an author of various books and she blogs about her life and writing.  It’s a good, personal read.

Oh No They Didn’t: The popular celebrity gossip site that is hosted on Livejournal. Because everyone needs some celebrity gossip once and a while!

The Maven of Mayhem: Another blog from a fellow Ottawan. Amanda Jetté Knox blogs about her family life, including that of her transgender daughter and wife and the family’s journey in love. Inspiring and addictive.

Bitches Gotta Eat: Samantha Irby’s utterly hilarious blog about life.  Read it.  Go NOW.

Skillshare: A site where you can take micro video courses about many, many things.  Learn how to paint, how to code, how to cook.  It’s all on Skillshare.  Have I mentioned how much I love it? Yes, yes I have.

I feel like I should make it an even ten, but I can’t think of a tenth favourite at the moment.

What are your favourite websites? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Oh wow! Thank you for including my blog. That’s awesome!

    Naturally, yours makes the list of my favourite websites. I’m also in love with YouTube, which can be as awful a cesspit as reddit, but mostly it’s a great place to find awesome, interesting entertainment that the established media wouldn’t risk.
