Web Surfing Part 2

Have you read Dogblog yet? A man walks around San Francisco and takes pictures of dogs tied to benches, poles, meters, etc. Very funny. Here's another funny animal blog: F**k You Penguin. You've probably read this one before, seeing how it has almost 7000 followers. Just in case you haven't, it's about a blogger who derides animals for being so cute.

I heard about Mint.com on NPR one morning and had to try it out. I love it. It's a free budgeting website that has really helped me see where my money is going--with pie charts! You have to register, though.

Starfall is one of my favorite educational sites. It's geared toward young children learning how to read. Big pup absolutely loves the 'All About Me' section. Funbrain is another educational site where kids can play games. Click on the 'Playground' section. It's fun and free--no registering.

Web surfing part one is here:)

  1. Hi Ali,

    I have found you through a comment you left at ButterYum a while back.

    I am actually getting in touch with you to let you know about a “blog” of sorts that I’ve started, called TasteStopping.com. It’s a place where those of us who have had our photographs declined from TasteSpotting, FoodGawker or Photo Grazing can submit and have that same work published to help drive traffic to our sites. I hope you will check it out and give me your feedback. The current home is: www.tastestopping.wordpress.com (until the official site is up and running).

    I look forward to hearing (and seeing) from you soon!

    Thanks,
    Casey

  5. Thanks for the links to some fun and educational blogs. Mint.com seems like something I really need to check out. Budgeting - are you speaking a foreign language? LOL

    This is a download and is wonderful. No Spyware. Easy for little ones to navigate.

    This one requires no reading to navigate. Kids could really be lost there for hours.

    Both of these are educational
