Top Ten Websites
Advantages: Cheap goods, Uses up time, cures boredom
Disadvantages: Uses up too much time?
No doubt most of you will have heard of it and probably use it.
I use it mainly to keep up to date with friends, share photos and news, organise events and some times to look over how a night out went when i can't recall what happened.
Probably up there with pageviews by me with facebook.
News website that is pretty reliable, usualy kept up to date pretty quick and you are also able to comment on some news stories and 'have your say' which is pretty good because you get to see what peoples views on certain topics are from all over the globe.
First thing in the morning i check up on this to get up to date with the world and make sure world war 3 didn't happen over night so i've actually got to get up and go to university.
I'm on this probably 10-20 times a day checking out share prices and to see whats happening with mine. They are very secure and reliable, the shareprices are updated with a few minutes delay. Probably the easiest, cheapest and best way to get into dealing shares. I invested about £500 in total, in seperate companies, and im now at about £720. Thats not a bad profit for 3 months investment.
If you don't want to risk any money or dont know much about shares and how it works you can also set up a practise account, which is exactly the same as the real accounts apart from the fact that its not real money.
They offer you lots of support, advice and help to get your investments up and running.
I decided to set up my own little blog to share my life with the world. Its mainly about lifestyle changes, keeping fit and other things that are going on in my life, such as reading, university and money.
Its a great way to start up a little side project to keep you entertained and focused.
Its free to set up, comes up in google searches, comes with free templates that are fully customisable and you are also able to store photos and videos on there.
Another good feature of blogger is that it lets you make money if you want to, for example if you set up an amazon associates account you get paid for every purchase made through your blog, or every click on an advert with google adsense.
(if anyones interested. ha.)
HotUKDeals is the UK's largest site for member submitted deals, voucher codes and bargains.
Its basicly a huge word of mouth forum, people find things that they think are cheap, from clothes, food to holidays and they post it up.
It gets rated either hot or cold, generally the hotter the deal the better the deal is. I have used this website to find out about special offers on clothes and games. It helped me to pick up some soul cal hoodies for £5 delivered from their online store, new Xbox games for under £25, which i have then played and sold on for a profit etc.
The only down side is that you end up finding really cheap things on there that you cant help but buy, even if you dont need it. Such as Full HD 40" LCD t.v's for £175. Definatly a good thing to look at before using the next website on my list.
Ebay is an online auction website, you are able to buy and sell things on there for a price.
I rarely sell things on ebay now because of the fees.
You get charged to list items on ebay, they then charge you a 10% fee ontop of the final sales price, you also get charged to use paypal.
There really is no seller protection anymore and you cant leave bad feedback if you're a seller.
On the plus side its good if you are a buyer because you can find pretty much anything on there for cheaper then anywhere else, seriously anything. I bought a shrunken human head from a museum. Don't as why, it freaks me out, god knows what i was thinking.
Another big name, i use it to look at trailers, catch up on tv i've missed, post videos and look at how-to's.
Its a video sharing website that you can upload your own videos to and share with friends or the world.
Its also a good website to look up bands and songs if you have headphones but not your mp3 player at the handy.
You are able to comment and share videos with other uses to voice your opinions. Although over the internet it can be pretty pointless due to the amount of trolls and uneducated people sitting at home waiting for an arguement.
Onepoll is a survey website, there are constantly surveys online that you are able to complete for money, they dont take that long to do and most can be completed in a minute or two.
A great website to use if you're working from home or you've got some time to kill and want to earn some extra money.
I visit this every day just to do a few surveys. The only downside is that you cant withdraw the money until you get £40, which takes on average 2/3 months.
Not bad for a free website to join.
hotmail is an online email account, you dont need to use outlook express to get your emails, but you can if you would like to.
All emails are stored online and can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection. There is a huge storage limit which means that it can hold many emails and photos. I use this to send work to myself incase i dont have my usb stick with me. Then i simply download it when i get home.
Easy to use, free to set up and very simple.
This website, i dont visit it as often as the others but its still a good website.
Everything i buy i end up writing a review, either to tell people about the bad experiences i've had with a company or product or the good ones.
So far ive probably earnt about £30 from it. Not bad for a website i'm not that active on.
Before i go to buy something i check here for a few reviews first, to make sure im not making a mistake and i know what i should expect.
So thats my top 10, if there are a few websites there that you have never used before i highly reccomend going onto them and giving them a go. You've got nothing to lose and lots to gain. Feel free to tell me your experiences with them.
Summary: Cant really live without them, can see myself using them for many years to come.
