Advantages some very useful sites out there
Disadvantages I probably spend too much time on all this
I spend a huge amount of time on the Internet, probably way too much time to be honest!I therefore thought I would have a go at listing my top 10 sites, based around the amount of time I spend on them each week, combined with how much I enjoy the site, and how useful it is, so here goes.
I will list the sites in order from 10 down to 1, where 1 is my favourite website.
I dabble around with stocks and shares in my spare time, and when I have any spare money, and so for this reason I visit advfn almost every week day. The site is a great design, showing numerous charts for each stock, as well as giving details on the stocks' market capitalisation, earnings per share, turnover, profit etc. There are also discussion forums for each stock, which give people the chance to debate the stock, and talk about the best times to buy and sell, and predict where they see the stock going over the short, medium and long term.
I have banked with Nationwide for almost 20 years now, and I find them a fantastic building society, which offer customers good rates on mortgages, loans and savings. The Internet banking facility that Nationwide offer is very good indeed, and I find myself visiting the site a few times a week, saving me the time and expense of going into my local branch to check on balances, move money around, or pay bills. The site is very simple to use, and seems very secure, as I have had no problems in all the years I have been using it.
Onepoll is a great little survey site, which I visit a couple of times every week day. Surveys pop up throughout the day, and pay out between 5p and 50p typically which is instantly credited into your account, and most days I earn between 50p and £1. The surveys are all pretty short compared to other sites, and a balance of £40 is required to cash-out, by paypal, or cheque. There is a really good 'refer a friend' system available on Onepoll, which really helps to boost your balance too.
I visit yahoo every day to keep track of my emails. I tend to receive a lot of emails, some of which are quite important, and so it is important to keep on top of them all. The automatic spam separation is very useful, as well as the option to flag up emails that need further work. Yahoo is also great for news, sport, finance, chat, Internet searches, almost anything you can think of, but I generally just go to the site for my email, but often end up reading a news article or something whilst on there.
I am a huge fan of sport, and so I am always visiting BBC sport, as I find it to be the best sporting website by far. The layout is simple, with all the sports listed down the left hand side of the page, and a breaking news banner moving across the top of the screen. I use BBC sport a lot when I am not able to get near to a radio, or TV when a live sporting event is on, such as a game of cricket or football. BBC sport often have live text on these games, updating regularly on anything that happens, and it is the next best thing to watching or listening live.
