Trending Websites

post by Michelle Griep
Usually writers write. But there are times that writers go off-roading on the internet and stumble across some pretty sweet sites. I am one of those writers. Hey. Quit judging. I'm going to share those sites with you . . .

Instructables
This is kind of like Pinterest on steroids. Basically it's DIY's with pictures and instructions from people all over the world. Some projects are super hard. Others easy. It includes pretty much anything you can think of from building your own dune buggy to how to scramble a perfect egg.

Wolfram/Alpha
Speaking of steroids, what if Wikipedia got pumped up? Well, it would turn into this site. Anything, anyone, pretty much any any can be found here. It's a ginormous database that let's you explore whatever topic or person you're interested in.

MyFridgeFood
Been writing or reading all day and you haven't been to the grocery store in over a month? Pop on over to My Fridge Food and enter the few ingredients that you do have on hand. With a click of the button, voila . . . instant ideas for a meal.

downforeveryoneorjustme
Ever go to a website and the dang thing just won't pull up? Is it your computer? Your router? Your server? Your neolithic technological skills? Or maybe it's not you and it's simply down for everyone in the world, which would make you feel a lot better. This site let's you know.

Umm. Need I say more? Okay, I will. This is freakishly addicting.

These are way cool!! But how did you find them? And the cow one I don't know how it works, since all I could hear was the dude shouting "Cow" lol

I, too, checked out the cow one and it was a white screen and all you hear is "cow cow cow...." you get the idea.

Okay girls, here's how it works. You slide your cursor around and when the shouting gets louder (kind of like when you were little and played hot or cold, and you got hotter, until you were super hot), then click the mouse. The cow will appear if you're in the right spot.

Okay, I tried it again and found the cow. I'm pretty sure that the shouting of "Cow, cow, cow, etc.." would drive me bonkers. Mooooving on. LOL
