I finally got there
At 10:06 a.m. this past Monday I finally got there -- the last page of the Internet. It was a long journey that began some time back in the 90's when I discovered the 'net.
I love the Internet. Yeah, it can be a huge time suck, but it's also entertained me, informed me and helped me earn some money.
Now that I've reached the last page, I took time for a little retrospective look down memory lane at some of the sites I've bookmarked as favorites.
Google -- Need I say more?
eBay -- I'm a buyer and seller.
etsy -- A world of wonderful handmade items.
Internet Movie Data Base -- How can one live without this site?
US Newspaper List -- Another great resource site.
Free Rice -- Improve your vocabulary and help others. What could be better?
Facebook -- I plead the 5th. Actually, I've reconnected with childhood friends and a best friend from high school, among others.
Snow Days -- Winter fun.
Snopes -- Great place to debunk urban myths and those annoying emails about getting money from Microsoft for forwarding emails.
All Recipes -- When you're looking for a new recipe.
Max Talent -- Terrific place to find photos to use as visuals for hero and heroine of your book.
Squirt's Place -- My favorite hunk site. NOT SAFE FOR WORK though.
Vista Print -- I just love all the great things you can order for just the cost of shipping.
Grammy Tales -- THE most adorable child in the world.
Go ahead. Click on this link and visit the last page. And then come back and tell me YOUR favorite sites. One randomly selected commenter will get one of my handmade beaded bookmarks.
