Top Ten Tuesday- Top Ten Blogs/Sites That Aren't About Books

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here will answer. Everyone is welcome to join! All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
This list can also be titled "Top Ten Reasons Sarah hasn't posted a review in a while". So in no particular order...

  1. Facebook - I am an app junky. At times my really video games get sidelined because I get sucked into apps. But I am slowly weeding them down. Baby steps.
  2. DeviantArt - A lot of the pixel artists who used to have sites, have reverted to DA for posting their work, so I go there to keep tabs.
  3. Limelight Cafe - Once upon a time there was an art forum I went to called Fractured Fairytales. It was awesome, but after being open several years, and once membership dwindled, it closed. Limelight Cafe is a new forum, by old FF members, in the same flavor.
  4. Ancestry.com - I started doing genealogy round about my senior year of high school. Now, ever so often (usually when they do their New Years sales), I get a subscription to Ancestry to see if can find anything new.
  5. Family Search - Family Search is the greatest free genealogy site out there (Ancestry gobbled up a lot of the other ones). If you didn't know, The Latter Day Saints run free genealogy centers which are connected with some of their churches (check your phone book). My dad and I started going to the local center when we started, but it was hard since everything was on microfilm or microfiche, or you can request them from Salt Lake City. Now with the site, you can see the majority of their records.
  6. GetGlue - I check in to a lot of things (but its linked to my primary twitter @sawcatsims). And sometimes if I'm bored, I go rating things.
  7. Relentlessy Cheerful - The tumblr account of James Chance. He's an artist who does fandom mashup artwork - Star Wars characters as Winnie the Pooh characters, Muppets as Doctor Who characters....I found it when someone on either facebook or twitter linked to his series of Muppets as the characters in Firefly/Serenity.
  8. The Bitten Word - A Foodie blog. The guys who run it feature recipes from the cooking magazines they subscribe to, and talk about the making of it, and what they liked and didn't like about them. Everything looks so good, even if I wouldn't normally eat it. Strange thing I like, because I don't like to cook.
  9. Tudor History - When I first got hooked on podcasts, I stumbled onto Lara's Tudor History podcast, where she'd talk about news related to the Tudors, and historical happenings. She runs this site, which is a great resource if you need some quick information.
  10. Masterpiece on PBS - I love the Masterpiece series. I repeatedly go to the site to check what's coming up, who the cast is, or look for announcments of the new shows for the next section.

I love Masterpiece Classic too! Especially Upstairs Downstairs.
