The good people of The Broke and the Bookish threw us a curve ball this week: a Top Ten Tuesday that is not about books. Instead, it’s Top Ten Blogs / Websites You Visit That are Not About Books.
Let’s hit it! I’ll show you mine; you show me yours.
That didn’t come out right, did it? Read my list, then share a few (or ten) of your favorites in the comments!
1. Bluebird Blvd: “Conjugating the absurd. Daily.” There is so much to love from this writer: poetry, photography, quirky and dazzling five minute dance parties, wise words on being a grown up and funny words on being alive.
2. The Lady Pastor: Of course lady pastors write the finest blogs! Emily shares great photos, stories of her adventures, and glimpses into her music, her style, and her life.
3. Beauty Tips for Ministers: Speaking of lady pastors . . . This blog helped me so much as a seminary student and new pastor (now I am a veteran at almost three years). Peacebang’s advice would be good for people in many walks of life. Plus, she is just really funny and smart.
4. Suburban Snapshots: It’s a mommy blog, sort of. It’s funny and real and not competitive. Except that Brenna is also a professional photographer, so the photos she includes are way, way better than the ones I’m able to share.
5. Tom and Lorenzo: A lot of fashion on here, of course, but what I really love are their TV posts. I started watching Mad Men so that I could enjoy reading what T and Lo have to say about it; I kept watching Project Runway for the same reason.
6. Facebook, of course. Let’s be honest: I probably spend more time here than anywhere else on the Internet. It’s where all my friends are!
7. Pinterest. I finally caved, and now I’m addicted. Where else can I collect a bunch of adorable ideas for Zoe’s birthday party (that I will probably never actually use)? It’s aspirational, and I love it.
And, I guess I’m done at seven! Really, the other websites I spend the most time on are Amazon (where I add things to Zoe’s wishlist) and my library website (where I add things to my online request list). And those things are . . . books.
Where do you hang out on the interwebs?
Bonus Question: What spooky, scary, nighttime books would you recommend for grades 6 to 8? Think mysteries, crime, vampires, ghosts, sci-fi. Help my friend K get her middle schoolers reading this summer!
