Last year I read a blog that mentioned the blogger’s favorite websites. I figured why hoard them when I can share them with you! Here’s a compilation of some of my favorites. Over time I hope to add to it. I want to know what some of your favorite websites are too! Comment away!!
If you don’t know what Facebook is I’m guessing you live under a rock and don’t have a computer. If that’s the case, you’re not reading this…. Have I lost it? I’m talking to an invisible person….
While you’re over there check out the new page I made Rose’s Recipe Group. Moving on >>>
Now I’ll start explaining the sites better. Twitter is basically a status update about what you’re up to. What are you reading, what are you watching, who’s annoying you at work, what you’re making for dinner – basically anything you want to tell your followers. The catch? You only have 140 characters to get your point across.
Some of my favorite people to follow are:
Albany-ish: Michael Henry, Kristi Gustafson, Andrew Badera, Ellie, Jerry, Dom, Emily, Albany Kelly, , Swilly, John Jordan, Cassie Cramer, Terri Rossi Albany/Saratoga Realtor, Tweet Up Albany This is our local Tweetup Group!!, Marcus Molinaro – NYS Assemblyman I went to high school with, Meg Sharp, Bill Swallow
Non Local Cool Peeps: Great Photographer in GA, St. Simon’s Elopments If you want a beautiful place to get married, contact Miss. Carla,
Celebrities: Megan Ward Kate from General Hospital, Scott Reeves Steven Webber on General Hospital, Logan Neitzel runner up on Project Runway, Carol Hannah Whitfield runner up on Project Runway, Alyssa Milano from Who’s the Boss? and Charmed, Katey Segal from Son’s of Anarchy – AKA Peg Bundy from Married with Children, Carolyn Hennesey Diane from General Hospital – Also on CougarTown, Sutter Ink Creator of Son’s of Anarchy, Sarah Joy Brown was Claudia on General Hospital, Nancy Lee Grahn Alexis on General Hospital, Derk Cheetwood Max on General Hospital, Nia Vardalos from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Peter Facinelli Carlisle Cullen from the Twilight series – Also was on Fast Lane
Obviously I spend time here everyday. So read my blog, subscribe to my blog, comment on my blog…. And while you’re over there check out Michael’s blog The World Through My Lens, Courtney’s Blog Cute~Ella is Bold, and Cassie’s Blog No Day But Today. There is one other blogger that really amuses me. Check out Rude Cactus.
I like to read, though I don’t do it as much as I’d like. Once I discovered this site it became a place to keep track of what I’ve read, what I’m reading, and what I want to read. Check it out. I enjoying seeing what books my friends like and don’t like. I won’t waste my time on a book my friends hated….
I don’t know about you, but I hate spending so much money on books. Paperback Swap is an online community book exchange. You pay to ship people your books, they pay to ship their books to you. You earn credits for every book you’ve mailed and can use those credits to request other books. The only criteria I’ve learned to ask on this site is if the book is from a smoke free environment.
Meetup is a great site to get to know people with similar interests. Awesome for someone who has moved to a new city and/or wants to make friends. You can join groups all over the country. If you’re in the Capital Region some of my favorite groups are No Destination which is a motorcycle group, The Capital Region Photography Meetup Group which is Michael’s photography group, and Fun, Fearless Females which is a woman’s group.
Panora is a great online radio site. Basically you search for an artist you like and it will play you music from that artist and other artists they think are similar that you may like also. It’s a nice way to get introduced to new music.
You can research almost anyone or anything on this website. It isn’t always 100% accurate because content can be updated and changed by the public. Usually it’s pretty good though for a fast answer.
LaDorkas – National Multiple Sclerosis Walk
These women are incredible and walking for a good cause.
Please donate whatever you can. They have a hefty goal.
Every dollar gets them closer to a cure for MS.
If you live in NY, then there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Brooks House of BBQ. They come to many churches and schools in Upstate, NY for fundraisers. That’s how we discovered them. We eventually visited their restaurant in Oneonta, NY and we enjoyed it quite a bit. On their website at the bottom you can click on BBQ Events to view their catering calendar.
Other sites I enjoy for shopping:
Adagio Teas – Loose tea and teapots, etc.
Deals Plus+ – coupons and deals to over 15,000 stores you like to shop at – Best Buy, JoAnn’s, Michael’s, etc.
eBay – online auction site
Half – online bookstore – powered by eBay
New York & Co. – Women’s clothing
Pandora Jewelry – Charm Bracelets
Teavana – Loose tea and teapots, etc.
