Five Things for Friday – Five Favorite Websites

I’ve been a huge Internet fan ever since I was young. I loved all the information that was out there, just waiting to be read. I loved that I could look anything up and get an answer (I used to love reading the encyclopedia).

These are a few of the sites I visit on a daily basis.

1. Facebook

It’s easy to keep in touch with lots of people, I can see pictures of my friends and family, and since my husband is traveling, it’s also the way we communicate most often because I can’t have any personal electronic devices in my workspace where I am 12+ hours a day. Some people dislike Facebook for many reasons, but for me it does more good than harm.

2. Instagram

I really like pictures and I like following a wide variety of people. I’ve been trying to follow more healthy people, so lifters and runners and yogis because surrounding myself with healthy, active people makes me want to be better. If you want to follow me, my Instagram name is crkellr.

3. Reddit

It’s the front page of the Internet! I spend a lot of time here for news, running-related forums, finance forums, and sometimes just cute cat videos.

4. Magoosh

I’m studying for the GMAT next summer. I try to spend a little time here every day either going through lessons, working on flashcards, or working through some questions. I could probably spend more time here, but I have a much longer timeline than most people do and I don’t want to get burned out. Fortunately, Magoosh’s subscription is valid for a year so I have plenty of time.

5. Washington Post

I’ve liked the Post ever since I lived in Northern Virginia. I like its mix of articles and recently have been enjoying reading about how others decorate and live in tiny apartments. My duplex back home is only 768 square feet, so it fits the tiny apartment category for sure. I also appreciate that they do live feeds of important press conferences. Last night I watched live as President Obama announced we were keeping 9,800 troops in Afghanistan through the next year.

I bet you thought there’d be more fitness sites on here? I visit a lot, but these five sites I’m guaranteed to visit every day whiles I can go a few days between my other favorite sites like The Daily Mile and various blogs.
