    What Web sites do you visit regularly?

    I have been checking out the same Web sites every day -- after reading my email, it's usually The Washington Post, CNN, USAToday, facebook, Weight Watchers Connect, and this one, of course. I do follow links all the time, from my emails (mostly quilting sites,) news articles and facebook posts, but I feel like I am stuck in a rut.

    What sites do you visit regularly that are worthwhile, at least for a few minutes?

    I am not looking to spend a lot more hours on the Interest, but I would like to be aware of sites worth the time to check occasionally.

    Thanks for your input!

    Bonnie Hunter posts new content every day so I check hers. I check my news feed for any new content and the weather. I check YouTube for a sewing blog that usually posts once a day. Of course I check Quiltingboard several times a day and I am glad it is working again!

    I do the Washington Post crossword every day. I don't visit a whole lot of sites. This one mainly, and a few blogs that I get notifications for. I have a facebook account but don't visit very much.
    One I like a lot is Literary Hub but that's not every day.

    I always check abc news, msnbc and my local news channels. Also The Fat Quarter shop and Missouri Quilt Co for their daily quilting specials. I check the quilt blogs I like and sometimes Amazon. I also like orderofbooks.com when looking for a new author or book to read.

    IMDB - Internet Movie Database. I love looking up things about actors and what pictures they were in.

    I used to get my news from the Yahoo home page but got tired of reading about Meghan Markle's baby bump, etc. I use Google for news.

    I visit 4 or 5 forums, this one, a frugal board, a general interest board, an online selling board, a widowed board, and an etiquette board.

    Also Youtube, where I eagerly await a video of the latest crash at the 11' 8" bridge in NC. (also known as "The Can Opener").

    Try www.refdesk.com - It's the first place I go every day because it contains not only links to all sorts of news sites, but also features interesting facts (down the middle of the page), unusual bios (about not-famous people), NASA photo of the day, quotation of the day, and various calculators.
    You might also like www.aldaily.com - it's basically a site with links to all sorts of literature sites, book reviews and interesting articles in science magazines
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
