This week’s theme from Broke and the Bookish is not about books. It’s all about your favorite non-bookish websites. This was so much harder than I thought! I really don’t follow too many blogs outside the book realm, and I hardly ever visit the same blog twice for recipes. So instead of choosing a theme for my non-bookish websites, I’m choosing to list a few sites a visit on a weekly basis that tell a little more about me personally.
My habit is to first search on Food Gawker and then pin my finds on Pinterest. I never have the problem of scrolling through pages of listings that I’ve seen hundreds of times before and they always have international recipes available too. I absolutely love that I can find a recipe posted in German or Polish and easily have Google translate it for me – some of my best recipes are found from international blogs. That said, I don’t typically revisit blogs for recipes, but some of my favorites are Shutterbean, the Kitchn, and the Food Charlatan.
For Science and News:
I was a Geology major in college and will always love science. I’m one of the wierdos you’ll hear talking about minerals like they’re adorable fluffy animals. Or if we’re on a roadtrip, you’ll always have the fantastic folds or unconformities pointed out for you. It’s in my blood, I just can’t help myself. That said, I’m always interested in what’s new in the science world, geology and science in general. My favorite sites are Science Daily, Discovery News, and the BBC. For general news, I’m partial to the BBC and Huffington Post.
I’m absolutely obsessed with USA Today’s daily crossword. It’s my favorite. Sometimes I’ll wait a few days between puzzles just so I can spend my lunch break doing all the crosswords I’ve missed that week. It’s a great stress reliever! But seriously, can we have one crossword a week when the word “oreo” is banned?
A few of my favorite, non-bookish blogs are Kendi Everyday, A Cup of Joe, Franish, and Rising*Shining (check out her podcasts The Girls Next Door and Matrimoney!).
What are your favorite, non-bookish sites?

I love your post – particularly that you’ve included sites about science and new and crosswords. I love all those things and yet it never occurred to me to include them.
I love The Kitchn too! I also love their sister site, Apartment Therapy. Just so many good pictures that make me want to work and slave until my life looks half as put together and my meals as delicious, haha.
And I like Kendi Everyday! I don’t know how I stumbled upon it before but it just looks so familiar to me. Also her outfits. ❤
Here’s my TTT, if you’re interested!
I didn’t realize they had a sister site! I’ll have to check it out!!
I’m not sure if it’s actually a sister site, but they look really similar and they actually link to one another on the top bar, so I just assume they’re related somehow. Definitely check it out, so many pretty interior design pictures! 🙂
I agree! This one was hard for me too and so I listed some not so exciting websites. I love that you listed science and news websites – I didn’t even think to list those. And the crossword! Yes! I’ve been meaning to do more crosswords… 🙂
Never heard of Food Gawker, I’m gonna check it out now! Great Top Ten! 😀
ooo several great ones to choose from here – thanks! 🙂 My TTT
