Top Ten Blogs/Sites I Read That Aren't About Books

Writing this blog post about the top blogs I visit made me realize how much I’m on the Internet. Like, all day, every day. I’m not complaining…but it’s kinda scary.

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Join the meme and link up on their site!

Top Ten Blogs/Sites I Read That Aren’t About Books


1HelloGiggles – This site was created co-created by Zooey Deschanel, and it’s all about super girly fun stuff. There are TONS of articles about pop culture, TV and stuff women deal with. Plus they have a live-streaming Bunny Cam. ‘Nuff said.

2Running Off the Reeses – Cely from Running Off the Reeses is hilarious, cute and snarky. A winning combo in my book. I read about her crazy journey through life, accompanied by her pudgy and adorable French bull dog.

3Netflix — I steam videos like it’s no one’s business. Right now I’m watching A Room with a View on Instant Watch. It has Helena Bonham Carter, Dame Judy Dench and Maggie Smith. The trifeca of awesome.

4Pinterest – I’m not on Pinterest as often as I used to be, but I flippin’ LOVE this site. I find new recipes and crafts every day that I love. It’s addicting in the worst way.

5PBFingers – This fantastic food and fitness blog is run by my former co-worker and friend, Julie. She is a freelance writer and blogger, and she features recipes, workouts and daily life stuff on her blog. Love it!

6Amazon – I’m not sure if this is cheating, but I surf Amazon for new books and other random stuff DAILY.

7KT Crabb Photography — Even though it’s been two years since I got married, I’m still obsessed with weddings. So, I get my daily does of wedding fabulosity from my friend Katie, who’s a local wedding photographer. I love scrolling through her blog and seeing all the amazing wedding she attends and photographs. What a uber talented person!

8Etsy — If you couldn’t tell by my Novel Accessory posts, I’m in love with Etsy. There are tons of amazing, handmade items, and I always want them all. My husband would like me to stop visiting this site…but nothing will keep me away.

9Where’s My Dream Life — This blog is written by Deborah, one of my friends from college. She writes about her life insights, and I’m not sure she knows how awesome I think she is. Her sense of humor and joy is apparent in every post, and I really admire her tenacity and devotion to her faith.

10YouTube – Easily the biggest time suck EVER. My latest fave video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZhMfzc9RbU. Thus the cycle continues.

What are you favorite non-book type blogs?

    I actually LOVE Etsy and Pinterest. I am looking on both sites right now for the baby’s nursery stuff. Monkey if the baby is a boy and an Owl theme if its a girl. So Im loving all the awesome stuff Im finding on both of these sites 🙂

    • I love it too! I spend WAY too much time on it though. …and have nothing to show for it. Not even one recipe!

      Also, I love owls and monkeys. Your baby will be styling no matter what gender it is. 🙂

  • I’m off to check out the first two. Julie’s on my list too!

    I love photography websites/blogs I have a few of those up on my post since I’m trying to learn photography.

    Here is my Top 10

  • Jamie Gibbs

    Good mix 🙂 I’m slowly starting to get into Pinterest, but it’s taking a while.

  • Thanks, Lisa!! That makes me feel pretty awesome. 🙂

  • I can waste some serious spans of time on both Etsy and Pinterest!

  • Ems

    Oh, Etsy & Pinterest…I had to cancel both because I was spending so much time there! I’m rubbish at regulating my time, so it had to be all or nothing. 🙁

    Great list!
