5 Five Sites I Can’t Live Without

After a long, busy and stressful day at work, there’ll be no better treat for me than making myself online and watching my favourite funny videos in motion. When everything is set, now it’s time for me to check out my five (5) most favourited and most visited sites on World wide Web.

1 ) Google / Gmail — No doubt above anything else, checking my personal emails is one of the most vital tasks in one’s life. Having my unending notifications from my other sites and newsletters from the blogs I followed. Not to forget those freaking spams I’m getting from people I do not know.

2 ) Facebook — I guess, 8 out of 10 Filipinos own a Facebook account and I don’t blame them for having one (or more). For me, it’s a site that gives me an opportunity to get connected with my friends, colleagues, neighbors, relatives, and more. It allows me to post whatever I think is worth reading or saying, apps that are worth using, and games that are worth playing. But sometimes, the way people behave, talk or post in timeline elevates disgust and hate. There are people who I wish I don’t get friends with but because I know them (personally), I have no choice but to ignore their ******* updates /status.

3 ) Twitter — The number of followers versus following don’t matter to me, the only thing I mind is the quality of posts from the people I follow (e.g. Cher, Marie Digby, Lee So Yeon, Cyndi Lauper &c.). I hate to see people who employs twitter just to let others know that they’re famous or whatever (but they’re not).

I love discovering new things from different cultures, world and ethnicity. It lets me create lists of people I follow depending on the interest they’re into.

4 ) Pinterest — Honestly, my first love is Tumblr but thanks to I discovered . It has nicer, cooler, and more prefessional look than any other sites ever made so far. It’s one of the chosen sites that requires no background or layout just to look good or become enjoyable to the users, so I salute Pinterest for that great job.

5 ) Goodreads — Books have never left my mind, I’m always thinking of what to read after my online life. Checking new events invitations, book recommendations and Quote of the Day are the ones I’m anticipating to.

If you’re not into books, you’ll find it a little boring at first. But once you explore the entire site, you’ll get addicted to it, EVERYTHING ! From giveaways to groups, to people, to author, to ebooks, to widgets, to feeds : they’re all engaging, so you better check this out.

Now I got the five websites I can’t live without, then maybe it’s time for you to make your own list or give me other more competitive links you find more interesting than of mine.
I’ll be happy to discover new stuffs, and will be open to better ideas from you guys.
