    What are your five most favorite websites and why are they?

    I just researched an article on CNN's website and went to print it.  Their print function is OUT OF SIGHT, OFF the HOOK, DOWNTOWN!  There was an overlay, complete with arrows to the print screen that pointed out all the buttons you could click to adjust the article to print.  When you click on a picture, you can easily delete it to save on your printing.  It was then that the above question came to my mind.
    I do love istockphoto because I can quickly find an image that I can license for hubpages.  I like sitepal to create avatars and jibjab to make cute cards for my friends.  And you?

    Wikipedia for the useless trivia

    IMDb ....see above

    Blabbermouth.net to keep up with news in the hard rock/metal world

    The Onion because it never fails to make me laugh

    ...and of course HubPages!!

      I'll have to visit Blabbermouth since my husband's son is a metal guitarist who can really shred and works for a recording studio here in LA.  Great choices to check out.

      If your husband's son is involved with the Metal scene then I'm sure he knows all about Blabbermouth already. It's the CNN of the hard rock scene.

      Yeah, for sure.  Steve is involved in all that PLUS being totally also immersed in studying all kinds of alternative energy.  (Maybe that all goes hand in hand).  He has credit on the new Def Tones album (assistant engineer)  - so proud of him.

    Didyouknowgaming.com because I get a new peice of gaming trivia every day (for instance, did you know that according to a Rare employee, when microsoft bought Rareware, they mistakenly thought they owned the donkey kong franchise)

    screwattack.com because they have some nice gaming news, and other things that tickle my fancy.

    youtube...well, who doesn't watch an occasional youtube video now and then? I watch plenty of (you guessed it) video game related things

    Hubpages here because i enjoy my blog. I could go into detail with this one, but I won't.
    and...I don't think i have any other that I really offer an opinion on.

    Hubpages - I'm now an addict. Facebook - To keep in touch with good friends. Pinterest - Love most of their DIY ideas! My universities website - Always important and interesting. Psychology Today magazine - Love reading up on what they have!

    Wikipedia has been a favorite of mine for some time.
    HubPages is quickly becoming a close second.

    Others would be online movie forums i frequent like RottenTomatoes, or IMDb.

    godaddy.com-if you are looking for domain name
    host gator-if you are looking for hosting services
    Craigslist-for services
    Amazon,e bay and tiptop electronics for online shopping
    and of course Hub pages who can forget this one.

      tiptopelectronics,  I had been with web.com for years for hosting my site, but now switched to godaddy because the templates n tech service there are great   I also buy domain names there.  Hmmm...host gator - never heard of that one.  Thanks !

      It strange that you never herd the name of host gator,well godaddy is also a great name on providing domain and hosting services but when i look for hosting service http://www.hostgator.com/ is one of the best i found .
