Aug. 14: Thursday Thirteen #9

Visit Thursday Thirteen if you want to read some fun lists written by talented and interesting bloggers. Here’s mine for this week.

13 of my favorite non-blog sites

  1. Twitter. Oh my goodness, I could pee myself on every visit because I follow some wickedly funny twitterers. You can see who I follow by looking at my profile:
  2. Internet Movie Database. IMDB is the absolute best resource for movie info.
  3. Some E-cards. These are not your standard e-cards. Their slogan is “when you care enough to hit send” and they are addictive.
  4. Facebook. I signed up because a friend said he’d created a page and I wanted to see it, and since then have been pretty much hooked. I’ve found a lot of old friends and acquaintances, but the best part has been to reconnect with one of my closest friends from the early years of college. Even if I eventually spend less time on Facebook, I know I’ll stay in touch with her for a good, long time. (Lovies, Sherilee!)
  5. Google Reader. I used to spend so much time chasing my favorite bloggers all over the ‘net. Now they come to me, in a way, by collecting in my reader. I keep this open all day and it updates regularly. If you think there’s a better reader out there, please let me know—I signed up with Google because I use Blogger, but haven’t looked around much to see what else is out there.
  6. Go Fug Yourself. Snark, anyone? This site pokes fun at celebrities’ odd wardrobe choices and can occasionally raise your self-esteem points a notch or two (no guarantees).
  7. Café Press. Looking for anything—ANYTHING—with some kind of saying or image on it? You’ll find it here. It’s easy to create your own little store too.
  8. eBay and Etsy. I’m putting these together because even though they’re very different kinds of sites, I use them both for finding unique items. eBay has everything; Etsy has tons of amazing handcrafted goods. I guess craigslist sorta fits into this category too, at least for the way I use it (though the Best of Craigslist is some pretty great entertainment).
  9. Amazon. I shop here way too much but it saves me trips to the mall. I really hate going to the mall.
  10. Bookins. I’m a new-ish member here and so far am fascinated by how easy it is to use. Basically, it’s a site that facilitates trades of used books and DVDs with other members. Whatever you receive costs $4.49. Whatever you send out costs you nothing; you print postage from home on regular paper and simply drop the envelope in a mailbox. If you want to register and “thank” me for alerting you to the site, use this link.
  11. 6pm. This site has great prices on shoes and runs frequent sales.
  12. Spot The Difference. Do you miss those search games like the ones we used to do in Highlights magazine? Here you go. The games get harder with each level, but you can do them over and over to increase your gold/silver/bronze levels. Pretty fun.
  13. The DIS Discussion Forums. If you’re going on a Disney vacation, there’s no site better than this one to prepare yourself.

What are some of your favorite web sites? Please share!


  1. Um thanks. I have a feeling I'm going to be over at Spot the Difference all afternoon now!! haha

  7. Awesome list. I go to practically all of them with the exception to Twitter and Google Reader, but I'm starting to think I should look into google reader.

    I'm kind of a geeky person so I love Although I have a facebook I'm more of Myspace kind of gal. lol.

    Have a great weekend

  8. ‘Kewl’ T-13 … I use Google Reader myself to keep up (though I'm usually behind) … and have ordered from Café Press and Amazon before … know about eBay and ETSY but the rest are unfamiliar to me. Who has time for anything more than blogging?
    Hugs and blessings,

  9. Very cool post Jen. There's a few in there I haven't heard of. I'm going to have to check out Go Fug yourself. lol - Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

  10. #2 and #3 are TOTALLY my favorites! I can't begin to calculate how many arguments IMDB has settled. And Someecards is just too funny (and wonderfully warped). Thanks for visiting my TT.

  11. Amazon, ebay, Facebook, and Craiglist. I will have to check out Twitter!

  12. I wish I had time to surf the net but I hardly have time to blog. I will have to check a few of those out. Happy TT and thanks for stopping by:)

  13. love this list!! I'm going to be up all night now : )

  14. OK, well, here come the guilty pleasure confessions... (delve deeper than the celebrity hoo-ha and there's great recipes, fitness ideas, gadgetry galore, you name it. Girl site if ever there was one.

    And, where you can get what's-going-on info specific to your city (I have to settle for Seattle, since Walla Walla hasn't quite made it to the big time yet!) and about interesting products, services and shiny pretty things--need I say more? Again, a girl's thing.

    Lovies back atcha, Jen! All hail the facebook, reuniter of long lost pals!

  15. RULES!!! Best of the best of the best of the Interwebs. It's more than a website; it's a way of life.
