Top Ten Websites
Advantages: I learn new things, I have fun, I earn money!
Disadvantages: My bum sometimes gets numb from sitting down for too long!
As a self confessed Internet Junkie, a large proportion of my day is spent on the Internet. For me it represents a source of boundless pleasure and also provides me with a decent income that allows me to be a stay at home mum. In truth there are many (MANY!) websites that grab my attention each and every day so to compile a top ten list was a pretty tall order for me. Just reading through some of the other members top ten website list has led me to find new and exciting websites to visit :)
So here goes, my list of favourite sites on the Internet...........(in no particular order)
It may seem strange that I have a search engine on my top ten list but I would honestly be lost without it. I find it quick, intuitive and a portal to a ton of useful information and images, whilst not forgetting streetview! Google also provides me with a regular income through its adsense program - what's not to like?
Whilst I'm not particularly interested in home movies unless they're REALLY good and I'm not talking about the late night variety (I don't mind them but they're not usually found on YouTube!), I love the music content on here and can usually be found listening to Nick Drake's beautiful Riverman at least a couple of times a day.
I feel the need to say LOL here! The only site where you can 'stumble' from the most hilarious pictures of people trying to be sexy but failing miserably to deep conversations about spiritualism to cute cat videos and back again. I've found some great stuff on StumbleUpon and also wasted a lot of hours!
One of my favourites for so many reasons. I can keep up to date with all my friends, heck I can keep up to date with people I've never met if I really want to. I can play Bejeweled Blitz and see pictures of my beautiful family from across the globe. Not a site to be logged onto after a few beers although it's fair to say that some of my most memorable and 'liked' status updates have been a result of too many beers :)
Some great content to be found on here. I like keeping up to date with the news and have always found the Beebs jounalistic style interesting and believable. I can learn a new language (although I haven't seen a course in Scouse yet) and watch Eastenders. Good stuff!
I sell tons of stuff on ebay and it's made me a fair few pounds since I discovered it many moons ago. That said, most of the money I make gets spent on other peoples listings, I'm a sucker for River Island Jeans!
A fantastic site with the most beautiful and innovative photography and images I have come across. Not the cheapest but it's quality stuff and I can always find what I'm looking for.
8. Valued Opinions
I'm a member of a number of online survey sites but have found Valued Opinions to offer regular surveys with a decent reward. I tell them what I eat and they send me Amazon Vouchers! I save these up for Christmas to spoil my little girl and last year managed to get over £200. Takes the financial strain away from Christmas for pointing and clicking for a few hours a week. Me likey :)
A wonderful free site with lessons on most web technologies. Despite the fact I have a first class IT degree I simply cannot remember even the most basic of HTML and the WYSIWYG design of Dreamweaver doesn't exactly help with this. Hence I've used the HTML tutorials on w3schools more times than I care to remember.
I love to play poker and I've tried out most of the poker sites on the web (usually to get cashback from somewhere!) but VC poker is my poker site of choice. I win money. It's all good :)
Summary: We live in the digital age! My top ten corners of the web! Each to their own :)
