I like the esthetic and it's very user friendly. As has been said, it's like fancy YouTube.

This is a decidedly tacky reason to dislike a site: I can't pull my videos.

I'm always trying to hunt down my own work footage, and sometimes people are rubbish at getting it to you. So when people post a video (without the ability to download it) on vimeo, my beautiful wondershare software is unable to download it.

For most of you, this is a probably a GREAT thing (I mean, videos shouldn't just be nabbed from the internet), but it's just a pain sometimes. However, the video quality is incredible, and for ones own personal use and upload, you really can't beat it.

RECIPES! VIDEOS! YAY!

If you watch food network, you'll like this.
If you need to get a recipe, you'll like this.

If you don't care about food...get high and look at this site! Pretty!

I will say that the recipe reviews are pretty useless. Users will give recipe high marks, then note how they changed pretty much everything about the recipe.

MUTHAFUCKA, THAT DOESN'T HELP ME! If I wanted your recipe, I'd go to your food blog. How dare you correct Alton Brown!!!

So all in all, it's helpful. It has pictures, a lot of how-tos from buying seasonally to properly preparing proteins for the oven, holiday themed menus- just use it.

Amazing leggings, swimsuits, and more!

I love this brand! It really is fantastic quality- I've had my Star Wars swimsuit for 4 years, and it is JUST beginning to show wear and tear. The color hasn't even faded like most suits!

Is it pricey? Yes. It's really hard to rationalize spending $90 on leggings. But then again, how many pairs of leggings have you owned that have lasted more than a year?

Lately some of the prints have been a bit too much for me (I'm more of a Hamlet legging/Galaxy print kinda gal), but the zany options are there to appeal to a wide variety of tastes.

...Except that horrible watermelon skirt. No one should wear that...ew.

All in all, the designs are amazing, the staff is super friendly (they send you a littler personalized note when they mail you stuff), and the material is built to last.

Web Hosting , Web Design
Okay, I know some people look down on Wix, but if you don't know coding well and you can't afford a web designer, I truly believe Wix can give you a polished looking project. It's web building for dummies.

Plus, for a few more bucks a month, you can pay to have their adds taken off. I HIGHLY recommend doing so otherwise it just looks like the site is all about Wix. Frankly, it just looks uber unprofessional and like you don't care about your business (or whatever you're promoting)

They're constantly adding new templates, adapting to new technology, and they have fantastic customer service.

Man oh man do I love this site.

Whenever I need to transfer headshots, film, or other huge files, I go here. Easy to use and FREE for 2GB?! Heck. Yes.

Cancelled my $10/month to Dropbox was I discovered WeTransfer because unlike Dropbox, I can send a filed to anyone, regardless if they've used the site before/have a subscription.

Really dig it.

MyFitnessPal

MyFitnessPal

Health & Fitness , Reference
MyFitness Pal is great in that you can track the nutritional value of food down to the amount of protein and fiber it contains. You can also track how many calories your burn from various exercises.

The downsides:
-The food is all put in from users, so the calories are all over the place.
-Apparently strength training burns no calories. WTF?!
-The online community is just awful. Thousands of uninformed people sharing fitness and diet advice they learned from pinterest, spouting horrifically unhealthy practices. Myfitness Pal can't help what people share, but jeeze, these people are morons.

All in all, I think it's helpful for people who are starting to get healthy, and to help them stay on track.

While I really love this site, I think I'm in the minority who don't enjoy the layout. Something about all the white space just really irks me.

That being said, great source for all things geek culture. Can easily lose a daily stumbling through this site.

When you're barely able to rub two nickels together, Groupon saves the day. From gifts for friends, to getting a hair cut, to getting a dental exam for us shmucks who don't have dental...this site can save your butt!

Downside: I have found that sometimes my services aren't as great as if I am a full paying customer. That's not Groupon's fault, but poor practice on the business' end. So just be aware that sometimes you do get what you pay for :-/

HBO GO

HBO GO

Film & Television , Video Streaming
Yes yes yes!

HBO GO is fantastic!

Having HBO shows in their entirety, as well as a fantastic selection of films, right at your finger tips is great. The film selection is DEFINITELY better than HuluPlus', and it still offers you the ability to binge like we've all learned to do from Netflix!

I've had a few problems with things loading, but that could be an issue on my end.

I'm pretty positive that only 7 people in the world actually bought this and we're all sharing their login.

Ticketvibe is dishonest in their advertising for events, they will rip you off. Their site is also not very good, it's cluttered and difficult to navigate at times.

A pretty busy homepage with a lot of content on it but with nicely designed top navigation. The footer is similarly well-designed and leads the user to not be overwhelmed despite the great amount of content present on the site.

A very minimal landing page which looks a little too simple to inspire confidence and trust in the user.

The top links when they do work, remove the header links and do not allow the user to navigate back to the home page without refreshing. The About, Press, and Privacy links all...

Generally, a good looking site but is a little overwhelming with the sheer amount of content on it.

The landing image itself with its great number of content is a little overwhelming to the eye and this experience only increases as one scrolls down further down the page.
