About.com lives up to its name, telling you about absolutely anything you’re looking for. Upon visiting the homepage, you’ll be faced with trending articles, ranging from lifestyle to finance to fashion, plus neatly categorised sections offering tips on the home, food, health, style, money, careers, technology, education and travel, so it’s likely there’s something you’re interested in reading about.

The articles are written by a vast range of contributors, all knowledgeable in their respective fields, allowing them to publish the best advice and information that’ll help you expand your understanding of a particular topic.
The articles range from serious and cutting-edge to fun and playful, offering something for every mood, and you may find yourself stumbling across articles you never knew you needed, for example “6 Holiday Hazards to Watch Out For”. Who knew a Christmas Tree could be so perilous?

About.com often appears in Google searches while looking for recipes or how-to articles, proving its popularity. It's well laid out and in my experience, it's been easy to find relevant information, whether I'm browsing a general topic or searching for specific advice.

I’d recommend the site completely, as it’s a great, free source of information.

Such a fantastic podcast!
Duncan has a knack for narrative history, taking all the disparate stories and facts and weaving it all together into a story that's fun and engaging.
It's also very well researched.
Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in history.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.
