What “Online Places” Do You Read On A Regular Basis?
1. Of course the ones on my blogroll: These are family and friends and it’s a great way to “see” what’s on their mind. Any one of them is a GOOD read.
2. Widow’s Quest – Anna is “learning how to redefine and rediscover life” as a widow. Although I’m not a widow, I benefit greatly from many of her posts that deal with grief, healing and moving on.
3. Scribbit – Michelle, born in and still living in Alaska, writes daily entries about “favorite recipes, reviews, crafts and giveaways mixed with stories of life in the Last Frontier.” She also has time to be a mother to 4. Besides the previous, I like to read this blog because I lived in Anchorage for a year or so when I was in elementary school.
4. LifeHack – This blog features “hacks, tips and tricks that get things done quickly by automating, increas[ing] productivity and organizing.” Today’s post shares how to have a more effective weekly review. Since I want to review my days three times a week, as part of my 51 things to do this year, I find this article to be most helpful.
5. See Through Faith – Lorna (in Finalnd) is journaling her walk with God as a mother, wife, woman and seminary student. Since I’m an older seminary student as well, I find her blog interesting and encouraging.
6. Tammy’s Recipes – This is more than a food blog -although there are lots of good recipes, with reviews and pictures. Take a look and tell me why you like this site.
7. Unclutterer – Blog about getting and staying organized. There are several other good blogs on this topic as well. Someday I’ll do a roundup of them.
8. Like Merchant Ships – Blog about being a well-rounded woman, wife and mother with posts on a myriad of topics that are helpful, encouraging and interesting to even me a divorced, empty-nester who is finishing her masters.
9. A Creative Journal – Posts with lots of creative journal ideas – for those who like to do that sort of thing. I used to journal a lot and I miss it. While I don’t journal that much any more, I at least think about the journal idea generators.
10. The Simple Dollar – “Financial talk for the rest of us” – many tips on how to manage finances and save some money. Reading this site has given me some useful ideas to incorporate into my financial life.
11. Free Rice – This vocabulary-building game helps me with this aspect of English and do a good deed. For each word I get right, 20 grains of rice are donated through the UN World Food Program to the poor. I confess that I sometimes do this while having dictionary.com open.
12. Positive Psychology News Daily – Because I like to read research-based articles about “the Science of happiness and positive psychology.” Read this one about Positive Abnormality: Be a Genius by Discovering your Specialty, Uniqueness and Meaning. Leave a comment on what you think. I think these types of articles are thought-provoking, helpful, and fun to read.
13. Cordova Neighborhood Church – This site lets you know what the latest sermon series is – you can access this through an mp3 tab; gives info on the Youth, Big Kids Club and Socks and Gloves ministry. Go here for the Calendar. There’s also info about What we Believe, the Staff and more.
These are some of the sites I check on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Where do you spend your time?
