FeelGooder Asks: Which Site Makes You Feel Good?

I think we all agree that the media can get us down, what with its panic-mongering and crisis-conjuring.

But the reverse is also true: we have the media to thank for much of our entertainment—much of what makes us feel good. Often, we look to the media—particularly TV and the web—for antidotes to the bad news pedalled by the very same source. So today I thought I’d ask:

Which site makes you feel good?

That's funny

For me, there are a few, but these are the tried-and-true standouts—the reliable day-savers!

The Onion has been on my radar for as long as I’ve been online. It always manages to say what everyone’s secretly thinking in a way that somehow manages to make things seem okay. How do they do it?

Colbert Nation is another laugh a minute for me. I can forget any cares at Colbert Nation: Steven’s always pointing out something (usually horrifying) that I had no awareness of, and making light of it at the same time. This is a news show I can get behind. Crushingly, the videos are no longer available to view down here in Australia. On the upside, there’s usually enough other super-witty content on the site to keep me going.

The Oatmeal’s comics are a surefire way to get a smile going even on the gloomiest days. Hammer Pants vs. Hipsters is by far the most amusing infographic I’ve seen in a very, very long time. Eerily accurate, too…

What about you? Spill the beans on the sites that make you feel good. We’ll thank you for ‘em!

    Seth Godin’s blog. It never fails to motivate me, especially when I combine it with re-reading his books.

  2. Only FeelGooder makes me feel good Georgina. There are other sites I like for other reasons besides feeling good though. Some are thought provoking and some are just plain weird.

  3. I read the Onion almost religiously. It’s sometimes sad how it’s not just clever, but insanely accurate at the same time.

    If you just skim the headlines it makes for quicker laughs, though.

    The Oatmeal is a really great site to make you smile. I don’t really know any other website that makes me feel good, mostly because I spend most of my time with writing, and reading other people’s blogs, and sharing stuff in social media.

    Or on rest days I spend the entire day biking and chilling, not really in front of a computer.

    I love Coilhouse for alternative culture, in the widest possible sense.

    Thom, the author of form is void and Chateau Thombeau always has something marvelous to make my day fabulous.

    And Luv & Hat have such a sense of humour and a wholly entertaining writing style.
    Calling scotch eggs ‘tears of God’ had me in tears from laughing!
