5+ Websites that are Awesome

1. Airows.com

With a blog-entry format and a clean look, Airows.com is a haven for people interested in “lifestyle inspiration that covers subjects like style, travel, gear, culture, technology, art, design, and cars.” Jack Archer’s website seems especially geared towards guys living the sweet bachelor life, given the number of posts devoted to sexy female celebrity photoshoots and bachelor pads (so I’m not sure what that says about me). 

2. Rappler.com

Rappler.com is quickly becoming my go-to site for local and international news. Following the civic journalistic style, with relevant features pieces here and there, the social news site offers content without the heavy bias you can feel in print news and with the benefits of good social media networking (good layout and design, plus easy to share and easy to comment). I’m following them in twitter (@rapplerdotcom). I think you should too.

3. Lost type

The world can never stop wanting for free, beautiful fonts –good thing that’s exactly what LostType.com offers. Though there are limited choices compared to other free-fonts hosting websites, LostType.com holds an edge with its aesthetic presentation and its unique line-up of fonts.

4. Archive of Our Own

I cannot count the number of hours I have spent browsing through this website for original and fan fiction. What tickles me the most about AO3 is its advanced search function, changeable skins, and quality work by independent creatives. A+++, even just for that work about Prince Philip meeting the Beast (maybe more on crossovers and fanfiction in some other post).

5. Easel.ly

Easel.ly was the first I used out of the websites which offer an easy and free infographic making platform. It’s very intuitive to navigate and equally pretty to look at, though a lack of fast internet (the saving part can be a bit problematic) and some limitations in design do make its services exciting but not necessarily perfect.

And

Naturally, I still love the whole other hosts of websites I regularly visit: Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress (of course), YouTube and all Google Apps for functionality –Google Calendar, Gmail, Google Keep, Google Drive. I do need to mention the app/site Pocket, though, because it is ingenious. It saves loaded webpages so that you can read them anytime, even without Internet. You can even sync it across all your devices to make them accessible anytime and anywhere (but only if you’re able to sync before you leave the Internet connection behind, though).

Life update I just said in my last post that I won’t have anything up soon… I am such a liar. Uhm. Sigh. This is procrastination at its most productive.
