Do you have an internet routine?

on Jul 24, 2009 @ 04:51 pm

Over the weekend i was at a house warming party and we got talking about internets sites, emails accounts etc we check everyday. To my surprise, 3 of the guys mentioned that the third thing they check (after email and fb) is . It's funny because i never knew that guys are so into that stuff. They mentioned that if you didn't check, they often miss out on good deals.

For me, I am constantly checking my email, i barely use facebook, i go to a few blogs etc. What about yo? Do you have a routine? Do you have sites/accounts you have to check/update everyday?

Yup...I have my daily routine of forums I visit and redflagdeals is on my top 5 list lol (and I'm a girl). I'm always applying for free stuff and entering their contests...just yesterday I got two things in the mail that I totally forgot I applied for...I love getting little surprises like that.

Definitely! on Jul 24, 2009 @ 09:25 pm

The order sometimes varies, but generally email comes first. After
that, anything goes. But the essentials that I check on a regular
basis are a forum, chick advisor, a few weather sites (I'm a weather
geek, literally), my website hosting service account (to monitor
traffic ... I'm a web geek, too), my rss reader to catch up on my
favorite blogs, and yahoo news.


I check email first, chickadvisor (duh), facebook, and then CRAIGSLIST of all things...

Twitter is last :)

I actually open several tabs on IE at the same time and check my Emails, Chickadvisor (latest articles, videos, reviews and of course the forum) and Facebook at the same time.
I don't really FB that much, only thing I do is sometimes upload pics if i'm very bored, or see if any long lost friend has found and added me on fb.

I used to go to and .... oh another funny website i sometimes go to if i'm very very bored is


me too on Jul 26, 2009 @ 08:14 pm

Email, FB, Twitter are the 3 that's always open. Then I check ChickAdvisor, Weather Network and other food blogs daily. :)

i actually never apply for contest and free stuff because i feel that
i'm never gonna win anyways... i've actually never even bought the
lottery before : )

Hmm.. just wondering, how do you guys go about finding deals on
redflagdeal or other deal website. do you look specifically for certain
things or just combing through to find good deals?

I check facebook a lot, but I don't contribute ofter. Maybe a criptic status update or a few pictures now and then, but mostly I just catch up on what other people are doing. My sister-in-law updates her status a number of time a day!!!?

After I check my email, work and personal, Chickadvisor is usually next, especially when I'm at work. And I always look for deals on There are a lot of deals, freebies and contests on Smartcanucks! You should check it out!!! But, yes... it takes a bit of patience and hunting!

I'm also collecting points on Swabucks. I don't want to solicit references on Chickadvisor... I'm not trying to take advantage of the site... but the thread is about what we do online... and Swagbucks is defnintely one site that I have open a few times a day. I'm convinced it's not a scam and have recieved gift certificates from it. Here is my link if anyone wants to check it out...

A few people mentioned weather. I check it a few times a day too... mostly hoping the forcast will change!! (What is up with the weather this summer!!??).

Mandyf... I didn't used to enter contests online either. But with a bit of research you can find some good ones (LouLou magazine beauty lottery, 680 News weather guarantee, Omni TV VIP contests, City Line contests, etc...) There are a lot of scams out there, so be careful! And I suggest setting up a seperate email (gmail, hotmail, yahoo...etc) to use when signing up becasue you tend to get a lot of emails from them, especially if you stumble on one that sells your email to third parties!


contests on Jul 28, 2009 @ 08:37 pm

I've won a few online contests and I always receive freebies. Over the past two years my sister has won over $20 000 in gift certificates, prizes and trips from online contests. She was the grand prize winner for Swanson's dinner and HBC plus and she won two to Alaska and another to the Dominican Republic. I also know other ppl who enter and for me my office group won $130 000 in our 6/49 lottery group last year..and I continue to play every week lol
