20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge: Day 10 – My Favorite Webpages
Half way! Go me!
Day 10 – My Favorite Webpages
This one is a hard one for me. A lot of people I know have a regiment of pages they visit everyday. I really do not. Logging onto my computer consists of opening several pages, pages that stay open pretty much all the time. These pages are:
- My blog – either to write a post, check the stat trends for my blog or to change the WotD
- Gmail – check my mail and see if anyone is on chat
- Yahoo Mail – ugh, I have had this account forever, so I get so much spam and piles of advertisements, because everything I buy and every account I maintain that is not specifically for WoW is through that email
- Facebook – which I have been mostly neglecting lately
- Twitter – see above
- Mint.com – this is wonderful for tracking my accounts, my bank balance and for receiving bill due notifications
- Google Reader – to check out newly posted blogs. I think I may have been slightly over zealous with this, as I signed up for so many blogs that I tend to have 50-100 or so new posts each night when I get home from work
- Pandora – I include this even though I use a player for Pandora, but I have a subscription, so I listen A LOT
Then, I have pages that I use semi-regularly.
- World of Warcraft – I check various armories often, quite often my own (ie. Caeridwen’s Blood DK spec and glyphs while I leveled DK Effy)
- WoWhead, WoWwiki, Petopia, El’s Extreme Anglin’, WoW Professions – my common various research tools during gametime and writing time
- Google search – how would I live without this?? I search Wiki entries, word spellings and definitions, song lyrics, addresses and a million other things
- Amazon – with my new phone, I have become fond of the Kindle app included with it, and I have begun buying books this way. Amazon, why do you have to be so point-click-buy simple? Evil, I tell you!
- Undying Resolution – finally, a guild that actually USES their guild page, so I skim it frequently
- Blog Azeroth – my now-favorite forum, it is so nice to have a collection of people who like to write and collaborate about it
As for all the blogs I read, please do not make me link all those addresses again! lol Just look towards the bottom of my widgets for my Blogroll. 😀
