Looking at my Google Chrome homepage, I noticed something interesting. It listed the top eight webpages I visit on a daily basis. After thinking about my internet usage, I realized this list actually covered all of the websites I visit daily. Here they are in descending order:
4. Ball State’s Homepage
5. My Ball State Email Account
6. Aplia (Online homework site for two of my classes)
7. My Fantasy Football League
8. My Online Banking Site
I have found I have a routine when I get onto the internet. First, I will login to my email and Facebook to see if I have any new messages. I will scroll down through my news feed on Facebook to see if there is any exciting news and I will respond to my requests. Next, I will login to my BSU email account and my online banking site. I look through the calendar function in my BSU email account and check my online banking to make sure everything looks normal. Finally, I visit my fantasy football league and Aplia to make sure I have done everything I needed to do for the week.
Some of you may be wondering where Twitter or Youtube is on my list of website. Honestly, I do not have a Twitter account and I use Google to look up videos for me. Twitter is not something that has caught on with a lot of the people I know and I think Google is better at finding videos than Youtube is (I do know that Google brings up Youtube videos in its search results, but I think Google more efficient at finding what I need).
What does all this mean? It means that out of the millions of websites in the World Wide Web, I use eight of them regularly. I do this because all of the relevant information I need is
on these eight webpages. I leave you with this question to ponder; what are your top eight webpages?
