I’ve been far too productive this last week, so today I’m revisiting all the wonderful sites that keep me grounded in uselessness – and I hope they are a benefit to others!
I don’t let myself play many games, because I just do not want to stop playing them. I break the rules when it comes to games that are easier to pull myself away from.
Solitaire – On my iPhone, Solitaire is my go-to game. Sometimes I play for speed, but it’s a good mindless game in my opinion, too.
The internet has so much content, it’s easy to just continually click links to relevant content and get lost in it all.
Bloglovin’ – I was a solid Google reader user, but since this service was also shut down, I’ve moved to another web-based RSS site for my needs. I have my sites all categorized into topic, so I can read about whatever I’m actually interested in at the moment.
Pinterest – Like most of the female population, I love Pinterest. Following people is great, but Pinterest has added a lot of new content discovery methods and I always find their ‘Popular’ page interesting.
Learning Something New
WordPress – The WordPress and StudioPress forums are my favorite to browse or search for new ideas on how to accomplish a task on WordPress. I’m always discovering a new way I can improve my code and provide a better product for my clients!
Illustrator – I don’t mind Photoshop (especially when editing… photos!) but I love Illustrator. And I love when my clients have their designs in Illustrator. So I try to do all of my work there. Only, I’m no master. I don’t have a go-to site when it comes to Illustrator tutorials, but even if I only have a vague idea of what I want to accomplish, Google can find me a pretty good source, or point me in the correct directions.
Share a suggestion with me?
For the sake of all things distracting, I’d love to hear what else is worth wasting my time on! My boyfriend does a lot of reddit, I know that’s always a good source of enjoyment.
