I have been using this site for about 8 months now. As the previous reviewer said, the HITs pay from $. 01 to $20.00 and up. Generally, the harder the task, the more money you will be paid (obviously) and the more qualified you have to be. For the HIT's that require qualification, you need to take the given test and pass it to be able to qualify. Basically, the more time you spend on here the more money you will make. One can make a good amount of money on here. Certainly not a sole income but definitely some spending money or some money to put away in savings or something. I've been paid for taking quizzes, surveys, transcribing audio, editing written assignments, and some other odd jobs. It can be fun too!

I can't believe Urban Decay doesn't have any reviews yet! I love this site! I am completely in love with their 24/7 eyeliner. I always make sure to have the silver and the turquoise colors. I used to buy the pack of 5 mini 24/7 pencils but they discontinued it :( which sucks because I always restocked when I ran out of that. Now they have the duo's which I've been snatching up frequently.

I LOVE Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes too. With names like "Feminine", "Dangerous", "Fun", and "Rollergirl" (my favorite right now), there's something for everyone. They even sell Vegan make up!

I also love the Book of Shadows, and their Lip Love honey infused lipgloss. I can't get enough of Urban Decay. I know I sound like an advertisement right now but I don't care lol. They're friggen awesome.

Also never had any problems with customer service or receiving orders on time. I will continue to order from here and you should too!

"Clothes don't grow, Kids do", as the site says. This is another trading website, except this one isn't for books or music, it's for clothes. Kids clothes to be exact. It seems simple enough. Find clothes you want and list your own - when someone chooses your box of clothes, a trade is made. The only downside though is that there is a flat rate of $10.95 shipping - which seems a bit much for a small box of clothes. And that's another thing: All boxes of clothes have to be listed for $5. No more, no less. I haven't made any transactions on here yet so I am only reviewing the idea, basically. Seems like a good deal to me, though.

I found SO many of my favorite websites through this awesome site. The site lists the top websites in 44 different categories for each year dating all the way back to 2007. Every week they have a "Weekly Faves" category which lists the "Faves" for that week. I am not sure how often they update the websites for all the categories listed, but the site boasts that the team members of AMF are constantly weeding out the sites that are no good, and only bringing in the very best of what the internet has to offer. They want to simplify navigation and make it so users can "smoothly cruise on the vast internet highway" and find what they're looking for in their chosen category without hassle. Well, count me in. The only gripe I have with this website is that a lot of the weekly faves for the previous years are no longer up and running, yet are still listed in the weekly faves as if they are. Someone should also be "weeding out" the sites that are no longer in existence! Well, other than that, it's a great time passer and like I said, I found so many great sites through here. They even have a blog which lists their newly found/popular sites with a brief synopsis of each one, updated at least every few days from what I've seen.

I really like this website! It's oddly refreshing. It's very easy to navigate and once you receive a "diagnosis", everything you want to know about it is on ONE page so you don't have to click back and forth repeatedly (when you click on something, a little "note" pops up on the page and further explains it, then you can "x" it out).

I think this is a really good idea. Obviously I wouldn't recommend it for serious illnesses and symptoms but it's great if you want a second opinion, have minor symptoms, or are just curious.

However, it is yet another website that can't figure out what's wrong with me :/ but tells me the same thing every other website (and doctor) has been telling me for ten years. Most distressing...

But other than that it's something new to try if you're curious. Not recommended for serious or complicated health issues.

Listen to a wall of music. Literally.

Search by genre, or enter in your mood and the site will find a wall of music to suite your chosen mood.

That pretty much sums it up. Not bad.

Definitely a great website for prevention of being scammed or opening e mails with viruses, etc. Definitely worth reading daily.

I use Club Pogo literally everyday. It's the page I have set up to come up when I first come online. I've been using it for about 5 years or so now, and am completely addicted to it. I'm usually not much of an internet gamer, but Pogo is my go-to for the games I do like to play. They have a lot of word games and I love word games. Scrabble, Boggle, word whomp, tumble bees, and wordsearch are among some of their addicting word games. The only thing that is a "Con" for me is that there are waaaaaaaay too many card games! I'm really NOT into card games at ALL. Also, tokens are pretty much useless now, can't use them for anything except entering to win $25 gift cards or buy mini items (though even those are mostly requiring gems now, which you have to pay REAL money for). I always thought anyone who pays money for a set of clothes, furniture, accessories, a background, etc. that their character can wear on a game site which many people don't even look at the profiles anyway... has too much money and is spending it on ridiculous things. Also, the badges. You have to pay for badges! You're paying for an achievement, again which no one will see or know anyway lol. I don't know. I just think that sort of thing is ridiculous. I'm not trying to embarrass or insult anyone who does pay for mini items or badges, but it's just not my thing. Just my opinion. Besides that, I love pogo. Just don't love spending money on it lol. Even my yearly memberships are bought with my free coke rewards!

Ok, honestly? I cannot find anything wrong with this website. First of all, it has to be the most popular bead/jewelry making supplies website on the Internet. Second, it has literally EVERYTHING you can think of related to jewelry making. Also, they offer discounts if you buy in bulk. The site is very easy to navigate and you quickly find what you're searching for. Their customer service is excellent, they ship FAST, and even include a free gift with your order! Everything is always packed neatly also. I get the Mystery Bags on there a lot for $10 and am never disappointed with the variety of goodies I receive! The site also has a gallery of designs, beading instructions, and a return policy that states 100% refund, no time limit, no questions asked. I've never had to return anything but from my experiences on the site I wouldnt doubt the credibility for a second.

This website may sound self explanatory but in a way it isn't... It tells you what main events happened in your birth year. It tells you what the #1 movie was, Top Actor, Top Actress, Best Director, Bestselling book, Nobel Prize for Physics, Nobel Peace Prize, and other very random but interesting info like for my year (1983) it said the Nintendo entertainment system went on sale in Japan, Red hot chili peppers launch their first album, Michael Jacksons Thriller video is broadcast for the first time, Eastern Europe sees the collapse of Communism, The Aids pandemic begins (I didn't say they were all GOOD things that happened...), MTV is launched in the US, Gay rights become more widely accepted in the world, some bands it mentions that were popular are REM, the Pixies and Sonic Youth.

It goes into what people were wearing, what video games they were playing, what kind of music they were listening to, tons of important events and events that were surely important but maybe not well known by people born in that actual year. What was on the cover of LIFE magazine.

Remember I said what it told ME... I don't know if it will be the same info or kind of info for you...

Also goes into what movie was all the rage when I was 15 (There's something about mary). The songs playing on the radio when I was 15.

Then it says one of the most popular songs that was out in 1983 was Down Under, by Men at Work. Then it proceeds to show me the lyrics to the song and tells me to sing along. LOL.

Then it tells me what popular movie was playing when I was 9,8, and 7. Shows the cover to Beauty and the Beast.

I like the way this website is done. The way it tells you is by showing you, sentence by sentence on the screen. Little by little. And it doesnt just boringly name facts and stuff that happened, etc. It makes you nostalgic. For instance, something it said for me was:

"There's TV noise coming from the second floor. Someone turned up the volume way too high. The sun is burning from above. These were different times. The show playing on TV is The A-Team. The sun goes down. Someone switches channels. There's Hardcastle and McCormick on now. That's the world you were born in.

Progress, year after year. Do you wonder where the world is heading towards? The technology available today would have blown your mind in 1983. Do you know what was invented in the year you were born?". Then it goes into inventions... then popular comics that were out... famous people who were born that year (Samantha Mumba?)...

And at the end it says:

"It's 2011. The world is a different place. What path have you taken?"... the end.

Bring on the nostalgia.

This website is awesome!... But hard to explain. It's one of those sites you just have to see.

But here's how it works...

Every few minutes, the site searches all over the web for newly posted blog entries with the words "I am feeling" or "I feel". When it finds it, it records the full sentence and actually identifies the feeling expressed in that sentence.

Also, the age, gender, location, and weather at the time of the writing can be extracted from the blog and saved with the sentence as well.

As quoted on their page (because this is the best way to describe it):

"The result is a database of several million human feelings, increasing by 15,000 - 20,000 new feelings per day. Using a series of playful interfaces, the feelings can be searched and sorted across a number of demographic slices, offering responses to specific questions like: do Europeans feel sad more often than Americans? Do women feel fat more often than men? Does rainy weather affect how we feel?" (and so on)

"The interface to this data is a self-organizing particle system, where each particle represents a single feeling posted by a single individual. The particles' properties – color, size, shape, opacity – indicate the nature of the feeling inside, and any particle can be clicked to reveal the full sentence or photograph it contains. The particles careen wildly around the screen until asked to self-organize along any number of axes, expressing various pictures of human emotion. We Feel Fine paints these pictures in six formal movements titled: Madness, Murmurs, Montage, Mobs, Metrics, and Mounds."

This is really cool! Each one of the above "M words" you click will present the blog world's feelings to you in six very different and very colorful ways! One of them is a ton of brightly colored moving dots. Moving very fast. Another is a graph that scrolls so far it seems never ending (but does end. Eventually!). The others are awesome too.

Alas, the site also says "At its core, We Feel Fine is an artwork authored by everyone. It will grow and change as we grow and change, reflecting what's on our blogs, what's in our hearts, what's in our minds. We hope it makes the world seem a little smaller, and we hope it helps people see beauty in the everyday ups and downs of life."

And I must say, it lives up to its expectations. This site I can say is definitely an original, colorful, heartfelt, honest, expressive work of art. One of my favorites.

Check it out, you won't regret it.

Totally LOVE the f*ck outta this site (look that one up on the site while you're at it!)! It's awesome for many reasons, but mostly because it is made by entirely by its users! It has over 6 million definitions of "sayings", "slang", "phrases", "quotes", and everything in between.

You can browse "definitions" by clicking the random button, or search through each letter, or find a specific word/definition/phrase/etc by entering it in the search bar. If it doesn't have that EXACT one (if you were off by one word or something), it will show you matches that are similar to the one you entered. Also, you can choose to vote them up or down.

There's so much to do on here. There's a word of the day, and you can look through the "dictionary" or "thesaurus" or "names" (where you can look up your name and see what previous users have to say about it in their "name meanings").

Everything on here is completely hilarious. I could spend hours on here.

They even have a store where you can have the definition of the day (or any definition on the site) printed on a shirt, coffee mug, mouse pad, and even a temporary tattoo!

The "Edit" option shows you pending words/definitions and YOU vote whether it should be published on the site or not.

I cannot say enough about this site. Just love it.

"The top ten of everything. Created by everyone." How it works is you create a top ten list about whatever you want. Then people can choose to remix your top ten, and you can remix other top tens as well. You can move stuff around, delete what you don't like, add your own description, change the image, enter a new title and tell why you chose it, and when finished you can view the "new" top ten. You can look at all the contributions to a particular top ten list also. All this moving around, deleting, editing, etc by all these users creates what this website is all about... A Global Top Ten! Get it? Good idea huh. You can also look at the popular top tens, and send in feedback and ideas.

PlaySpent.org is an interesting game type thing where you have to get through the month on $1000, you just lost your job, your savings are gone, you lost your house, and you're a single parent. You have to first find a job. If you pick temp, you have to take a short typing test to be sure you can type over 55wpm, You can opt in or out for health insurance, choose how far from home you want your job to be (closer to your job means more for rent, farther away from your job means more for gas). Also you will have to go grocery shopping, where to choose items that are shown, and the amount of that item you want (like real grocery shopping), and add what you want to your cart (and no, you can't just buy all ramen noddles - they limit you to three of each item). This will also affect your overall balance, so choose wisely. You will also have to make more decisions, such as whether you want to keep your pet after your landlord found out you have a cat, and the fee is $150, whether to pay for storage or ask a friend to store your items, whether you want to fly out to your grandfather's memorial service who has just passed away for $350, and more. After each decision you make, the game tells you what happens as a result of your choices in real life, and what other people have to deal with and go through as a result. If you run out of money before the game is up, you lose. If you are able to effectively save and budget your money, you win. It's definitely an eye opener.

This is one of my favorite websites to pass the time. I use it pretty much everyday. I love discovering new websites. I also love how you can customize the categories you like so you stumble on pages that are catered to your personal preferences. There are a lot of topics to choose from too.

My only gripe is once in a while it will bring me to a site that has nothing to do with any of my topic preferences. But hey, no one's perfect, right?

Also, I noticed that I get brought to a lot of pages with just one photo. I am assuming this is because of the photography category I checked off, which I love photography, but not just looking at some random photo on one random page with nothing else on it lol. Other than that, this is a really great site.

I love how you can follow people/have followers, browse or stumble through other users favorites, send messages, and review any website you want. I also have the SU toolbar installed on my browser. I love this. It's at the top of the browser under the menu bar, and has very convenient and useful buttons. The first one is a "Stumble" button. This is great because you can hit the button from ANY website you are on to start stumbling. You don't have to be on the SU website to start stumbling. There is also a pull down menu in the toolbar where you can stumble only a certain subject at that time if you choose. Also, there's a Like and Dislike button. With the Like button, you can click it on any website you want (again, doesn't have to be on the SU site) and the site will be added to your SU favorites. I go crazy with this button! Lol. Also there is a Dislike button, which helps SU cater more towards your preferences by weeding out the kind of websites you don't like. There is also a share button, to share to facebook and twitter, an Info button to see other SU users who Liked that page, a Favorites button, and Inbox to check your SU messages.
This is a website that will never go out of style because there will always be new websites to stumble through!

I like this site because I find lots of original and interesting images on it. The only gripe I have is that there is a lot of issues with copyright and posting other peoples' photos on your own site without their permission. I guess for some people, stating on your main page that you do not have any rights to any of the photos you post unless otherwise stated isn't enough for some people. I've had some issues with things like that and it's irritating, but still like the site to find unique pictures and easy to find with keywords.

I have read some of the past reviews and I can only say that I'm lucky I haven't run into any disputes with sellers or buyers and haven't had to contact the Etsy staff for anything in my approximately 5 years or so of using it. HOWEVER, I did have words with one seller, who I was looking at the switchplates she decorated in her store (which I also had started making switchplates. I was a beginner so I was looking around Etsy to see what techniques other people used to make theirs)... I asked her what she used to seal her switchplates with. That's all. And she FLIPPED out on me... saying that she sees switchplates in m store and she knows I'm going to copy her, and shes reporting me to Etsy and all these horrible things. So I basically tore her a new one, to put it nicely. She apologized because she realized what an ass&*$% she was being, and told me she was having a bad day. Whatever. But that's the only problem I ever had. Other than that, the sellers and buyers have been friendly. I love this site because it's so incredibly inspiring, I could spend hours looking through the stores and items... and spending way too much money on stuff! I sell also. It's just a really fun, really unique website. I couldn't do without it.

I found this site by reading the review of another Site Jabber user. I absolutely adore making lists, and have since I was little. I even own many of the List Yourself books, as well as the Listography books. The concept of this website is simple: Make a list. About anything. And browse through other peoples' lists. Sometimes a simple website is a website you can get lost in!

Doesn't even work. Just keeps telling me my calls need to be at least 3 minutes in the future, yet everytime I change it to WELL over 3 minutes in the future, it just keeps telling me the same thing!

I found this website ironically around the same time I found Stumbleupon.com. Well, StumbleUpon has grown massively over the years and this site, well... shrunk.

First of all, the graphics SUCK big time. It looks like I'm on the internet back in 1995 or something. I only used it a few times when it first came out and its been hiding in my favorites ever since. Well, today is the day it gets taken off lol.

You're supposed to click the wheel (no, not animated) and be brought to a random website. The websites you're brought to are boring, boring, boring. Sh*tty graphics, etc. and it seems like the majority of the sites (the ones I've randomly been brought to anyway) are all about different Colleges.

You can also choose to "View 100 random links" where the site will show you just that - a list of 100 random links. All boring.

Don't waste your time.
