Life Of A Blogger: Websites (Favorites & Most Used)

Welcome to my first Life of A Blogger post! This weekly feature hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat lets us (bloggers) show a glimpse of our life behind books and blogging. This adds a more personal touch to the blog and it's nice to talk about something non-bookish once in a while. If you want to participate, head on to Novel Heartbeat and check out the upcoming topics. ^__^

This week's topic is:


As a blogger, it's a given that I spend a lot of time on the internet. And when I go online, there are websites that I just cannot NOT visit. What are those sites, you ask?
  • Facebook. Chatting and connecting with friends because I don't text that much.
  • Twitter. Lots of drama but lots of fun, too! I'm still shy to start conversations with Twitter peeps but I've started talking to some.
  • Goodreads. This is every book lover's heaven. I also cross-post my reviews here. I blame Goodreads for my huge TBR, though.
  • Pinterest. This website is highly addictive! I spend hours just looking at recipes, (although I don't cook) DIY projects (that I don't even try), and pictures related to my favorite fandoms. *coughLegolascough*
  • Blogger. Of course! I don't go online without logging on my blog.
  • Gmail and Yahoo. For both my blogging and personal stuffs.
  • Other blogs. Take a look at my sidebar and see my favorite blogs. ^__^

That's it, folks! Those are the websites that I visit most often. And now it's your turn!

What are your favorite and most used websites? Do tell!

Julie @ Books and Insomnia

Julie is a Filipina blogger who pretends she has insomnia so she can stay up late reading. When she's not buried in books, she can be found watching anime, drinking chocolate-flavored instant coffee, lurking on the internet, daydreaming and talking about herself in third person. She loves purple and anything sweet!


  1. I've started trying to talk to others on Twitter too, though sometimes I get really nervous too, haha! I din't have a Facebook for my blog--I am thinking about getting one though. I use basically all of these websites besides those, plus Bloglovin! Great post. :)

    1. I'm trying to visit Bloglovin more often, though still not as much as I would like. :) I feel you, Gabs! I'm not really much of a conversationalist and sometimes it feels awkward to tweet with people. Thanks for dropping by! :)

  2. Mine are the same as yours! Twitter is one that I am starting to take more of a roll in, but I am still learning. :)

    Happy Valentine's Day!

    1. Happy Valentine's Day to you too, Jess! :) Twitter is a fun website to explore, especially for bloggers like us. :)

  3. Julie, I highly agree with your list! :D Although I go to YouTube often as well. I'm not a fan of watching "YouTuber's" or vloggers, but I mostly go to YouTube to look for new music or listen to soundtracks haha :) Happy Valentine's Day! Cute blog!!!

    Jillian @ Jillian's Books

    1. Thank you, Jillian! I don't visit YouTube that much because I always end up watching movie spoilers. LOL :D Happy Valentine's Day to you, too! ^__^

  4. I use Twitter probably the most, besides Blogger of course! I do also use Goodreads, although not as much as I would like to. I'm still trying to figure out the in's and out's of the app. I really think I need to get into it more. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    1. It's really fun to explore Goodreads. I'm addicted to it! I discovered a lot of great books there. ^__^

  5. Most of these are the same websites I always visit. Especially Goodreads. I'm so addicted to Goodreads.

    Life of a Blogger sounds like a fun feature! I'll definitely check it out.

    Ally @ The Scribbling Sprite

    1. I've just discovered this feature and it seemed fun to do. Thanks fro dropping by, Ally! :)

  6. I've started using twitter more and more and I'm totally addicted now! I use Goodreads a bit, blogger A LOT, and same goes for gmail :)
