Cool Web Sites - Part 2

Posted May 15, 2007

Today, I’d like to feature three Web sites recommended by Joseph Ayscue. By the way, Triangle Free Forum was suggested by five other people, so it must be pretty popular. Here’s what Joseph had to say:

www.mentalfloss.com – The site to make your brain bigger and your day shorter.

www.trianglefreeforum.com – The site to talk and argue and joke with a band of surprisingly insightful N.C. (and beyond) folks.

www.webkinz.com – This one is kind of cheating. You have to have a webkinz doll (hard to find) before you, or more appropriately, your children can enjoy the site. Still, with versions of classic games like Battleship, Connect 4 and others you can play against real competitors, it’s fun. And if you want your kid (age 4-8) to understand and immerse himself in the future of Web communities in a safe way, this is your site.

Tomorrow, we’ll wrap up our Cool Web Sites series with a few more suggestions.

    Thanks first to Bill, for mentioning us over at TFF.

    I also appreciate the additional sites listed by ml.

    Come on a take a gander at TFF. It's free to join and there's no ads to get annoyed with.

    Hi Bill,

    Have you checked out www.raleighing.com? It's a great blog about development, entertainment, and everything else about Raleigh. They have a bunch of new writers and have been going strong these days.

    Another one that you might really like is www.trianglehike.com
    It has just gotten started, but there are already two good posts complete with the pro's, con's, and kid friendly aspects of each hike. There are plenty of pictures and maps and the opportunity for others to get involved too.

    And of course, there is the fabulous Bill Leslie website . . .
