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...
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?
