For No Especially Good Reason
Scalzi did this over at Whatever: For No Especially Good Reason I Put Each Letter of the Alphabet Into My Web Browser and Posted the Link it Autocompleted To, so why not me, too, I thought?
A was The Abominable Charles Christopher, a wonderful web comic.
B was Barnes & Noble - I buy books. (I'm surprised, sort of, that Amazon wasn't my A.)
C was Birds of North America at Cornell, hence the C.
D was Darths & Droids - webcomic with an amusing D&D version of Star Wars
E was Wikipedia - English-language Wikipedia.
F was Facebook - well, sure.
G was Google - it would have been a shock otherwise.
H was Headsup: the blog - "the deskly arts" and a straight look at what's going on in FoxLand, too.
I was Izvestiya - not my first site for Russian news, but I isn't a go-to letter.
J was The Comics Curmudgeon: the url is joshreads, for historical purposes. A great site for comics snark.
K was Kotomatritsa, cats and others captioned - in Russian. Usually good Russian, not Internet slang though that's there, often poetic.
L was Language Log, the linguistic blog.
M was Multitran - a Russian translation database, a wonderful resource.
N was The Conscience of a Liberal, Paul Krugman's blog at the New York Times's website. I was a little surprised it wasn't the main NYT website, but then again, he posts a lot.
O was Orbitz - I travel.
P was Peapod - I have my groceries delivered. I love it.
Q was Dinosaur Comics at qwantz- a great web comic.
R was Robert Reich's blog - this surprised me. I like him, but I don't go there a lot. Must not use "R" that much.
S was Slactivist, a progressive evangelical who also does a mean take-down of Left Behind.
T was Talking Points Memo; it's a source I enjoy.
U was Webster's Unabridged. I look up words.
V was The New Adventures of Queen Victoria, another good web comic.
W was WMATA - the Washington Metro system.
X was xkcd - I mean, what else?
Y was You Tube - duh.
Z was Arnold Zwicky's Blog , another language (mostly) blog.
