Everybody has their favorite websites. I have several that I keep track of on a daily basis. They range in topics from technology to politics. I check several new sites as well just to try and stay up on the latest happenings. For this week’s list article, I’m going to go over five websites that I check on a daily basis.
- 5) The Superficial – I debated if I was going to admit that I actually check this website, but I have to admit, I’m a sucker for celebrity gossip. While I do not go completely gaga over it, the website is funny. The editor’s comments are what make this site such a fun read. This is the kind of stuff you will not see on Entertainment Tonight.
- 4) ProBlogger – When I started this blog, one of the things I was hoping for was that it would help bring in a little extra income. I did not have delusions of grandeur but rather just hoped for an extra couple of hundred dollars a month. I went looking for websites that gave tips on this kind of thing and stumbled upon ProBlogger’s 8 part Adsense series. This little series gave me a ton of insight into how to achieve my goal. And while I’m not there yet, I have already experienced some of the benefits.
- 3) iLounge – When it comes to Apple’s iPod and iTunes music player, there is no better website on the net that is as helpful as iLounge. These guys are crazy accurate in their reviews and their help sections are some of the best around. When I have a problem with iTunes or my iPod, I check iLounge first. If the actual website or their forums are not helpful, I’m usually pretty shocked. They have been able to help me with all buy maybe one problem since I became an iPod owner 3 years ago.
- 2) Digg – When it comes to news, the more sources I can find the better. I like to think that the more sources I read on a certain topic the better I can make an accurate conclusion on the topic. Digg, is probably one of the best news sites in existence. For one thing, the front page articles are there because the digg community of users has voted the article good enough to be on the front page. While the focus on Digg is still technology articles, the regular news that makes it to the front page is just as good.
- 1) Lifehacker – I can not remember how I discovered the Lifehacker website, I do remember that when I did find it, I randomly browsed it for at least an hour. The range of topics that Lifehacker covers is just insane. Anything having to do with life, both digital and non-digital, is covered. Their tips and tricks usually make the rounds on various internet sites and blogs (including this one). I would highly recommend that everyone read this site on a daily basis.
These are just some of the sites that I visit on a daily basis. Runner ups included Engadget, IGN’s Comics page, and Planet Gnome. Do you have a favorite website that you visit and feel others should know about? If so, leave a comment about it, I would love to hear about it.
