One nice thing about web browsers these days is that they’re so darn helpful. You start typing something and they jump in and try to finish your thoughts. And they’re often right too. Recently I went through my browser to see what sites come up with each letter. These aren’t necessarily the most visited sites in total, but are the most visited for each letter and provide an interesting snapshot.
The blog of my friend, Susannah Bianchi
The blog of one of my students
Not a site about English as a Second Language, as you might expect from someone who teachers ESL for a living.
The blog for my Intensive English Program
This is an odd one, since I think I’ve only been to this site once. It’s a writing/publishing site. Apparently, J sites aren’t that common for me.
A self-publishing site I use if I need a book printed.
The theater near us
Clearly I don’t visit a lot of sites that start with P. This isn’t even a real site. I typed it in by accident once.
Q: (none: apparently I don’t go to any sites that start with Q)
The blog of Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, the moderator of the Friday Fictioneers group
This is the site I use for my T-shirt line (available here!)
My university website
No surprise here.
If you don’t know what XKCD is yet, go there now.
This is a great site for anyone who wants to look up Chinese characters that are used in Korea. You know who you are.
So, what are your alphabet sites? You know you’re dying to go look now.

I have a friend who runs a blog specifically for criticizing xkcd. He doesn’t even hate it that much, but doesn’t think it deserves all the attention it gets. Myself, I quite like the xkcd, but must admit that the posts are sometimes a bit formulaic.

I guess anything popular with have its detractors. Does he not like the science behind it or just that it’s popular. Personally, I think it’s much more original than most web comics.

I’m so flattered I’m at the top of the list. Mine reads differently. It’s more business than art, I’m sorry to say. How clever of you David to even think of this as a theme 🙂

Yep, whenever I push “a”, your the first. 🙂
