Get EXCITED Fridays : gifs & useful sites
Head Like an Orange : a blog of mostly nature-related gifs. Some of these are totally gorgeous!
"I am bored, therefore I make GIFs"
Kawaii blinkie gifs on DeviantArt : I love these cute little animated icons! They remind me of my early days on the internet. I could keep clicking 'show more' and look at them for hours.
Coolest Stuff on the Planet videos : short informational videos about places, cities, national parks, and famous locations.
Jessica Hische - Like Knows Like : this interview is sweet, and the letterer/illustrator Jessica Hische is so likeable!
Pinterest is changing : the updated design is pretty intuitive, so the changes are no big deal (to me). What I really like about the update is the extra pins shown under the one you're looking at, labeled "People who pinned this also pinned". It makes getting sucked into the rabbit hole that much easier!
The 101 Most Useful Websites on the Internet
Of this list, I've been a long time fan of
Stock.xchng : free stock images
Urban Dictionary : definitions of slang words, abbreviations, and internet-speak
TeuxDeux : simple, well-designed to-do app
More recently, I've also had fun playing around with
IFTTT : set up automatic actions to happen among social media sites
Google Web Fonts : sweet free fonts to use on websites
Wordle : generate graphic text clouds from text you provide
LMGTFY Let Me Google That For You: generate a legitimate-looking url to give your friends when they're too lazy to google something themselves! Here's what one looks like: http://bit.ly/PnML4w
