Such Distractions!


Some days I wonder how I functioned without the Internet.  No blogs.  No YouTube.  No Wikipedia.  No Google Earth.  No Ravelry.  No Facebook.   No LOLCats.  What did I DO with my time?

This week, Ten on Tuesday has us exploring our Ten Favorite Non-Knitting Blogs.  This is a dangerous topic, folks.  Because I'm pretty sure I'm going to be tempted by whatever the rest of you post.  And, trust me. . . I really don't need any more distractions!

When I'm not reading knitting blogs. . . or checking in on Ravelry. . . or Facebook. . . or playing around with aerial views of the Nile River. . . or looking up old commercials from my youth ("ancient Chinese secret, huh?") I do check out some other blogs and sites quite regularly.  Here are are a few of my favorites:

  1. Tom & Lorenzo: Fabulous & Opinionated -- I won't let a day go by without checking out what T'Lo has to say . . . about fashion, television, and the red carpet.  Whether it's a critique of the designers on Project Runway, a detailed analysis of the fashion on Mad Men, or a hilarious re-cap of figure skating costumes, I can count on T'Lo to make me smile.  Witty and fun . . . with pretty pictures, too!
  2. The Oatmeal -- Nothing like a good comic to make your day!
  3. Whole Living Daily: Body + Soul in Balance -- Okay.  It's Martha Stewart.  But this site includes some great tips, recipes, and ideas.
  4. Cook's Illustrated -- Best. Cooking. Site. Ever.
  5. Cooking Light -- Another great cooking site.
  6. Everyday Food Blog -- And another great cooking site. (I get really distracted by recipes.)
  7. Fail Blog -- Because every day needs a little fun. . .
  8. PlantJotter -- Not really a blog.  At all.  But it's a great way to organize your gardening information (like. . . Ravelry without the yarn).
  9. The Morning News -- It's black and white and read all over.
  10. Pinterest -- I try to avoid this one, because the potential for distraction is HUGE!  (But what a concept!)

Check out other Ten on Tuesday posts here. . . and Get Distracted!

Tom & Lorenzo sound like a blog I need to add to my reader! Thanks!


This is a fun topic because every list introduces us to more time sucking sites, everyone better than the last!


I'm with many new distractions to pick from. Which one should I look at first?? ;)


I LOVE TOM & LORENZO!! Do you follow them on Facebook, too?

Pinterest is my favorite entertainment of late. I love looking at all the pretty pictures!

Manfully (Womanfully?) resisting the click! I have tons of links on my blog i check out almost daily (well, more than I need, anyway) with 46 books waiting for review and several knitting patterns waiting to be finished, I do not need more linkies to click away at :-}
But I'll be back when things settle down LOL.


Fail Blog is my reading list too!
Agreed, we all need a laugh
