Top Ten Tuesday #7

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme started by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s topic is Top Ten Blogs/Sites You Read That AREN'T about Books:

If you’ve never heard of Post Secret before it is a site where people send in anonymous secrets on post cards and the creator posts them every Sunday for people to read. Some of them are sad, some are happy, and some are just plain freaky, but they are all fascinating and I visit this site almost every week.

9. College Website
I have to spend way too much time on my college’s website. Just boring school stuff such as checking grades, looking through email, turning in papers, and paying tuition. Like I said, boring.

One of my guilty obsessions is celebrity gossip. I don’t know why I care, but I do. Anyone knows that Perez is always the first one with the news.

I don’t know how many of you all know this about me, but I am a costume design major, so usually my “school supplies” are sewing materials or art supplies. I spend a lot of time on Fabric.com looking at materials and buying supplies for my projects.

6. Hulu
I am a television addict. I follow so many shows that sometimes my DVR can’t even keep up. One of my favorite sites is Hulu because with a membership you can watch full series’ of several different shows. They also have a couple decent movies. 

5. Etsy
I love visiting Etsy because of the broad spectrum of things you can find through the site. You can find all sorts of handmade clothing or jewelry, as well as art or home decor. The strange thing about Etsy, is that what is “cute” or “crafty” is completely subjective so you can also find really strange things on the site as well. I recommend anyone else who enjoys looking on Etsy to also check out Regretsy for a good laugh.

Forever 21 is one of my favorite clothing stores, second only to the Gap Clearance store. Even when I am dirt poor I love looking on their website and window shopping for things I would like to have. I think they have very trendy, affordable clothing that is usually well-made. 

Busty Girl Comics is one of my favorite sites to visit because of how hilarious it can be. Basically, it is a blog ran by a professional artist who goes by Rampaige and she posts daily comics about the problems that go along with having a large chest. It’s like the sort of thing that so many people can relate to, but no one ever actually vocalizes. I also appreciate her blog because she is very encouraging to others and always preaches to be proud of your body no matter what shape or size. This world needs more people like her! 

2. Pinterest 
Pinterest is one of my daily obsessions. I have so many boards where I “pin” everything from delicious food to inspiration for my dream wedding. It’s a great site to organize and collect ideas or inspirations without having to use a scrapbook or something.

My number one most visited non-bookish site is definitely Facebook. I feel like I check Facebook way too frequently, but it’s a great way to keep up with friends and reconnect with people who you might have not seen or talked to in a while. I would definitely consider myself a Facebook addict. 

So, those are pretty much all of the websites that I frequent when I am not reading or blogging. I’d love to see other’s Top Ten posts this week, so please feel free to share your links in the comments below.

  3. I'm trying to stop being on Facebook so much...which only resulted being on Tumblr and Twitter more! Sigh. Great list, though! I really like Etsy, too. And if you like Perez Hilton, you might want to try dlisted--Michael K is hilarious!
