There's A Place For That

I'm continually amazed at the power of the internet and social networking. It's very cool how no matter what hobbies and interests you have, there's a site/group on the internet for it. The other day I was making a list of all the sites that I frequent that sort of make up the big interests in my life, and I thought I would share them here.

Running - Daily Mile - a place similar to Facebook, where you can comment on friends' workouts. I keep track of all my running here, and any other workouts that I do.

Knitting/Crocheting - Ravelry - I keep track of yarns and projects here. It's a HUGE community and super-fun.

Reading - Goodreads - I put all my book To-Reads in here. I mark books as "read". I get book recommendations from friends. I read and write book reviews. It's awesome and I love it.

Dieting - Daily Plate - I keep track of my daily calorie intake here. I say "dieting" with quotes, because I don't believe in diets that deprive me of any foods. I eat everything in moderation when I'm tracking calories. It's worked for me before. I lost 6 lbs in about 3 months last year... slowly but surely.

Eating - Chowhound or Yelp - I love to read restaurant reviews here before I go!

Cooking - - where we link to all our favorite Cooking Light recipes online.

Digi-Scrapping - my non-store open forum/gallery of choice is My Scrapbook Art. You can find my gallery here.

Technology - Lifehacker - my favorite technology blog/site.

Sewing - I am just starting this hobby and would love it if anyone can suggest a site/forum/social network for me?

What are your favorite hobby/interest sites?
