Time spent online

I’m online a lot. Sometimes I wonder, where do I spend my time online? Luckily, Chrome allows you to see your most visited sites and so I present, Shanella’s Most Visited Sites.

Not surprisingly, Google is the most visited site. I check Google for everything! If I need to figure out a word’s spelling – Google. If I need to look up a definition – Google. If I want to do a search – Google. Want to check the news – Google. Want to look up the weather – Google. Want to find a picture – Google. Looking up a movie – Google. Want to access all other Google sites – Google. It’s just the launchpad for everything else.

Facebook is the next used. I’m usually logged into Facebook on Chrome, however, the interesting thing about this is, while Facebook might be second used, I hardly go to the page for personal things! Sure, when I get an alert on TweetDeck I rather view the post on Facbeook, however, 80% of the time spent on Facebook is work related!

Next after that is WordPress, and this is probably because of BEDA. It might also have to do with the fact that I just got shanella.com and went through a lot of late night and weekend testing this past weekend.

After that I have Gmail*. Now with Google’s switching account implemented, I have three Gmail accounts that I check throughout the day.

Following closely behind – and a surprise site – is Yahoo Mail. I didn’t realise that I checked Yahoo almost as much as I check Gmail, mostly because I get a lot of junk email to that address. Perhaps it’s because of that and my constant clearing out of that account that I check it as often as it says.

I’m not too surprised at this next site. When I first got a tumblr I was on it 24-7! Now I’ve calmed down a bit, but I still do have two sites on Tumblr so it’s not surprising that it’s in the top 8 most visited.

Next up is Twitter. This is probably because I have two twitter accounts, one that is personal and one for the book tumblog so while the personal account is logged into all the Twitter apps, the book blogging twitter is logged on via the Twitter webpage. I wonder how many people actually go to the twitter page versus just using a Twitter app.

Finally, I visit Goodreads a lot. Which I understand. I love reading the reviews/comments/status updated on Goodreads. I also love updating the books that I’m currently reading. Love it! =D

* Gmail took up two entries because of the address mail.google.com and gmail.com. I’m sure if those were all counted together it would be right behind google.com.


A couple of months ago, Haley G. Hoover made a YouTube video on Facebook liking. I thought it was amusing and so I made  a lists of “likes” that I’ve seen on my newsfeed that made me laugh:

  • I bought a bag of chips. Not half a bag of air
    (this is a first world problem, I’m sure)
  • I Knew That Song Before It Was Popular
    (hipster alert!)
  • don’t sleep enough because I stay up late for no reason
    (well … at least you know the reason)
  • I dont care about your farm, or your fish, or your park, or your mafia!!
    (I sense a lot of hate here)
  • “Go away and leave me alone!” means “Dont go, i need you.. give me a hug
    (seems as though someone needs to express themselves better)
  • After an arguement I think about clever things I should have said
    (nod nod)
  • Realizing how much your life has changed in a short amount of time
    (hmmm ….)
  • Yes We Understand Your Life Sucks, You Dont Have To Post It All The Time
    (this wasn’t pointed to anyone in particular, right?)
    (only 108 people found this likeable)
  • Seriously? You joined this fan page? Wow, nothing better to do huh?
    (my thoughts exactly)

what odd things do you like?
