My daily website reads


One of my goals for 2013 was to limit computer/internet time. I wrote an article about social media/the internet limiting real life experiences, so I figure I should practice what I preach. So I only stay on these sites for less than 30 minutes a day, and I limit writing blog posts and reading/commenting on other blogs to an hour a day.

 But I do have a pretty solid routine for the sites I check-in on every day or when I need a break from working.

Here are some of my favorites:

BuzzFeed - I love the countdowns/lists of random topics that I can relate to..and how they have multiple posts on hot pop culture topics. 

Thought Catalog - I love the writers and reading their personal stories intertwined with fun lists and topics.

LinkedIn - I like to check notifications, updates from the companies I'm following, and sometimes post links on LinkedIn. Read more about the benefits of having a LinkedIn profile here.

CNN - I like CNN's website format the best for reading news, seeing which news topics are trending, and getting a (somewhat) apolitical version of the news

Pandora - My go-to for music at work or while getting ready in the morning. But I have a feeling that iTunes Radio on the iOS 7 may replace this...

Pinterest, Twitter,  & Facebook - Self explanatory, am I right? Addictive.

Blogs - I read two or three blogs on a super regular basis. And I try to catch up on as many as I can and leave some comments on those throughout the week.


What sites/blogs do you check every day or when you're procrastinating?

  4. I try to only do comments and blog reading on Mondays so that I have a week of work time in between. That really helps me.

  10. I love that you read Thought Catalog!! That is my go-to website when work is just ticking by slowly & I need to read something entertaining to pass the time.

    Besides that, I'm switching off on Pinterest, various blogs I read, and Eonline to get my celebrity scoop!
