When I'm not at ED Bites...

...I'm at some other mighty fine places on the web.

I think finding out what websites people frequent (okay, if you're into those kind of websites...) gives you a little insight into who they are and what makes them tick. The same thing goes for music and books and even TV and movies.

Much of my non-work-related online reading is related to eating disorders and other mental health issues. I'm leaving these websites out of my list. Why? Most of you probably know them, and I think it's important to start constructing a life outside of the eating disorder.

So here are a few of my faves:

Cute critters (things that make you go awwww...)

Cute Overload
I Can Has Cheezburger?
The Daily Kitten
Funny Animal Videos

Things that make me laugh

Postcards from Yo Momma
Not Always Right
The Onion
Some Ecards

Things that make me think

New York Times
Science Blogs
National Geographic News


Make Zine
E How
All Recipes
Recipe Zaar

Any must-visit websites? Share in the comments!

Jessica Hagy of Indexed went to my college! Hopefully I'll someday attain her level of coolness.

As a lover of miscellany, I really enjoy Dark Roasted Blend (http://www.darkroastedblend.com/) and, even though it's snarky, Fark.com.

social justice issues:

talking points memo
the american prospect
huffington post (but there's a lot of crap on it too. Fav blogger/contributors include Alec Baldwin, Chris Kelly, Harry Shearer, Jamie Lee Curtis. Also useful links to international press.)

Great post! Thanks. I bookmarked most of your links. Always good to find new (non-Ed) sites to peruse throughout the day (and Facebook is getting slightly too addicting).

Hey, thanks for all the links. I'll have some more time over the weekend to check these out more.

Thanks Carrie. You keep me going, more days than I can tell you. (I'm one of your usually silent readers.) Take care of yourself.

Late but here's one I used to go to on my old computer.
I like the inspiration and stories from this site.
Helps to not take ourselves too seriously.
thanks for reminding me to search for some of my old haunts.

These are all fab. Here are three more:

Judy Horacek's cartoons are a great mix of whimy, feminism and social commentary. Her topic of the month is particularly good.

About Me

My photo
I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.
