It is 2:34 am and no attempt to fall asleep has been fruitful. I have done a lot of reading. I even signed up for another of those free online courses. I have also listened to the same song for over one hour. Today I told my friend that I am happy to be learning a lot. Well. Let me tell you the top ten sites and blogs I visit on a regular basis and the reasons why I do that. Please note that these are mostly entertainment sites in Uganda, East Africa and whole of Africa. Please note I am not arranging them in order of priority or anything. That would be like a job for when I write like the ‘serious’ blogger and today I don’t have that mantle.

So, I just like how this site looks. It has some the best reviews I have seen…

Sportal.bg As A Habit

AUBG Tech Addicts

Greetings, tech addicts! 💡

As you all probably remember, last week I found a tech enthusiast who eventually decided to take on the challenge for another week. Dayana says she is doing OK so far, though she is kind of worried that her Sims have died of hunger. 😀 Be sure to check the AUBG Tech Addicts blog next week as I will cover the consequences of her challenge in the next post.

Alexander is a second semester junior at AUBG from Plovdiv, majoring in Business Administration. His addiction comes from his passion in life – sports. He is a big fan of football and basketball and checks game results and player statistics every day to stay informed on his favorite topics.

Alexander admits that visiting Sportal.bg and NBA.com

Jack ‘Heroism is demonstrated action’

Jack ‘I plan to have a revolution in vocabulary soon’

Sana ‘How?’

Jack ‘Will be creating a tool to convert websites to relevant language sites’

15 Beautiful and Minimalist Websites

Virginia Duran Blog

Some weeks ago I published 20 Amazing UI/UX Web Designs, where I talked about the importance of minimalism (in color and layout), neatness and one clear message (like business cards).

Lately I’ve been working a lot on corporate web design (check #3) and summarizing what a company is, believe me, it’s no easy task. For that reason, today I am focusing on this topic. Each of these examples did a pretty good job on this aspect, all are fast and effortless to understand. And beautiful.

Hope you find these designs inspiring for your future web site. What are your thoughts about them?
