Top Ten Tuesday: Non-Bookish Sites

This week on Top Ten Tuesday, The Broke and The Bookish ask us to share our favorite non-book related websites.  I think this is a great topic, because as I love all things bookish – it is kind of important to keep some semblance of balance in our lives.  That said, I’ve been having trouble naming ten websites I visit regularly that don’t have anything to do with books!  So I clearly need to visit some of the other Top Ten lists this week for some ideas!!  Here is what I’ve come up with though, in no particular order:

Suburban Snapshots:  This blog is written by my very funny friend Brenna.  I just love her, and her blog.  I think her post a couple years ago entitled “Why Having a Toddler is Like Being at a Frat Party” is what put her on the “map”, and she’s only gotten better.

Pintrest:  Oh my, do I waste a lot of time find a lot of great ideas here.  I especially love finding funny or poignant quotes and delicious recipes.  I have actually made several meals from Pintrest (my favorite being root beer pulled pork) but absolutely no crafts.  Someday….

Twitter:  I am typically very active on Twitter, and love how easy it is to connect with others, or to find out the latest news.  Granted, most of my connections there are with other bloggers or authors, publishers and publicists…  but not completely, so it counts for this Top Ten List.  Right?

The Bloggess:  I started reading Jenny Lawson’s hysterical blog long before I read her hysterical book, and I think you should read her blog too.  She’s too much and I often cry from laughing.

Least Helpful:  A compilation of the worst and not helpful reviews from the interwebs.  This is fun to just check every once in a while and find something funny.

Private Group:  Can’t post a link to this, but it has been a big part of my life for the past 8+ years.  It started through a wedding planning social site, and developed into so much more.  There are over 30 women involved in this group, and we live mainly in the north east, but not in the same city or state.  We have been there for each other though just about everything – weddings and marriages, divorce, remarriage, births of our children, miscarriages and all the troubles trying to have children.  Family illness and the deaths of our parents, changing or losing jobs, and crazy family members.  We communicate mostly online, but have had many picnics, parties, happy hours, and other such get togethers.

Funny or Die:  I love this site.  My current favorite is “Republicans, Get in my Vagina” , although just going to get that link shows me a few new ones I’m going to have to check out!

Facebook: Yes, I use it for the blog, but I also use it to communicate on behalf of my son’s PTO….  and like billions of others in the world – to keep in touch with family and friends.  I know, not very original…

I think that is pretty much it.  There are other sites that I look at once in a while, but not enough to really list them here.  OK – I’m off to check some lists…  please let me know of any sites you think I’d enjoy!
