The ABCs of My Browsing History

There is almost no point in making this list — but seeing as I very rarely clear my browsing history, I thought it would be fun to type each letter of the alphabet individually into my browser bar to see what website comes up first.

Here are the results:

A – http://www.google.com/analytics/ — Most likely for looking at the dismal traffic stats of my own website

B – http://bofa.com/ — I make sure to type in bofa.com anytime I need to check my bank account because I heard from a firsthand source that it drives their marketing department crazy as it lowers the value of the Bank of America brand

C – http://seattle.craigslist.org/ — Not all junk, but definitely some junk

D – http://www.distilled.net/ — My current place of employment

E – http://espn.go.com/ — Mostly for checking the dismal scores of my Baltimore Orioles (this year will be different, right?)

F – https://www.facebook.com/ — Despite the dwindling engagement, I think we all know everyone checks it several times a day

this is why we all still check Facebook

G – http://graymatterproductions.com/ — My cousin’s video production site that I built severalĀ  years ago, he produces some legit stuff

H – http://news.ycombinator.com/ — Some of the smartest and dumbest people all in the same room

I – http://imgur.com/ — The best image host on the web

J – http://jtsutton.com/ — Jay’s site has been under construction for well over six months, guess I don’t visit a lot of sites with the letter “j”

K – http://www.king5.com/weather — Seattle has been having some stellar weather lately, and I’ve apparently been staring at the reports daily

L – http://www.lukeclum.com/ — My friend’s new design site

M – https://music.google.com/ (redirects) — It’s now “play” or something like that, but m still works just fine

N – http://news.ycombinator.com/ — See above

O – http://www.opensiteexplorer.org/ — Love seeing the networking of the web on this handy site

P – http://www.paws.org/available-pets.html/ — One day I’ll adopt a dog from here

Q – http://www.foddy.net/Athletics.html — This is QWOP, the creator can go to hell and die

R – http://www.realchangenews.org/ — Was ridiculously surprised this wasn’t reddit, but Real Change News is an awesome local homeless resource

S – http://www.stentontoledo.com/ — You’re here

T – https://twitter.com/ — I’ve gotten ridiculously good at typing t and hitting enter

U – http://www.reddit.com/user/trexmoflex/ — My reddit username

V – http://www.verticalworld.com/ — Local climbing gym where I happen to be a member

W – http://www.stentontoledo.com/blog/wp-admin/ — The login of the website you are currently on

X – http://xkcd.com/ — Always relevant. Always

Y – http://www.youtube.com/ — It just is

Z – http://www.seomoz.org/ — Creators of Open Site Explorer as well as home to some great marketing discussions
