TTT: Websites Worth Checking Out This Week

TTT Banner for Websites Worth Checking Out

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is: Ten Websites I Love That Aren’t About Books. I already do a feature similar to this on Thursdays called Share the Love, and, quite frankly, there’s not a lot of websites I spend a lot of time on… So here you go…everything from where to find the best horror movies to natural insect repellent ideas!

Top Ten Websites Worth Checking Out This Week

  1. This cool article about water on the moon from ScienceNews.Org.

  2. This blog post about making a roof garden from M. Send.

  3. These tips on calming a child with autism from Halloween Goddess.

  4. This response to Graeme Whiting, the fantasy-hating headteacher, about inappropriate books from Alley’s Desk.

  5. This bit of horror photography from Joshua Hoffine.

  6. This post where authors weigh in on the “hard” to “soft” sci-fi spectrum from Tor.

  7. This for finding campy horror movies soon to be released from UpcomingHorrorMovies.com

  8. The Okeanos Explorer site – they’re exploring the Marianas now!

  9. This prepping guide for beginners.(Yeah, zombies might not happen, but tornadoes, earthquakes, and other natural disasters do.)

  10. This list of plants you can have around the home to help keep mosquitos at bay from MNN.com (I swear by lemon balm and basil!)

  1. Haha, for some reason I never realised that your banner image has an octopus/shrimp/cuttlefish-looking creature. Love it, it’s cute! 😛

    Thanks for sharing this list – what great variety, I particularly enjoyed the prepping guide. I’ve spent many an hour thinking about what I would do in the case of an apocalypse.

    1. It’s a Cool-thulhu (cthulhu) 😉 You don’t even have to think of it in terms of an apocalypse, just think about being without power for a week due to a bad storm or something. You should keep enough food and water to see you through 3 days at minimum. Instead of thinking of it as ‘prepping’, think of it as ‘common’ sense 🙂 Just like keeping a spare and a jack in your car, just in case the tire goes flat.

  2. That last article about plants to keep moquitos away is interesting! Been trying to find solution to that problem around my house and will have to try them and see if it works. 🙂

    1. I vouch for it. I really do. Miss L has lung issues, so we try to not use sprays and stuff around her. Instead, especially when we’re out somewhere, we carry bags of basil and lemon balm leaves. We crush them in our fingers, and then rub them on exposed skin areas. It’s not 100 percent, but it DEFINITELY helps.
