Earlier this week, I stood around a kitchen island, drinking a cookies & cream milkshake, surrounded by boys.

I know. Dreams do come true, kids. In the words of Jiminy Cricket, “When you wish upon a star…”

[Kidding, kids. Don’t wish on stars.]

Anyways, we were talking about websites- about how girls and guys visit different websites and how there are some staple dude websites that I have never even heard of.

You know, I’m trying to make my fella friends feel a little more at home here at AnnieBlogs, including this classic piece of conversation from last week.

So this week, I thought I’d list five awesome dude websites.

I sent out an email to about ten of my guy friends, asking for their favorite corners of the internet- but not, like, CNN.com or ESPN.com. I wanted the real scoop, y’all. Because I am a hard-hitting journalist. Duh.

I got back a BUNCH of sites that I literally did not know existed on the world wide web. And it was surprisingly challenging to narrow their list to just five websites… mainly because I’m not a man and I do not know how to pick websites like a man.

But I did it. Sorta.

[And ladies, if you ask me, this is like reading Wild at Heart, the internet edition. We may not understand all the information, but we have infiltrated their world. And we are here to learn.]

So here are five(ish) new websites for my guy readers to enjoy. [Gals, welcome to five(ish) lessons about the dude-nation.]

1. http://www.grantland.com/

This one came to me from multiple guys. It’s a sports meets pop-culture blog. I’ve read a few things and learned a lot, chuckled a bit. I’m sold. Subscribed.

The guy who shared this one simply said, “no words,” which is the exact opposite of my blog. Oops.

. . . . .

3. http://www.theverge.com/

Ohhh…. a techy website for boyz. Be still my beating nerdy heart. To be honest, I don’t know if I would read this one, but I would date a guy who did.  [Sorry, this post isn’t about which websites make me feel attracted to the readers. Sheesh. I’m terrible at this.]

4. http://www.valetmag.com/

Dear dude readers, read this and learn. Please. Bow ties are female kryptonite.

5. http://uncrate.com/

So. Many. Cool. Things. I think I’ve found about 14 things for my Dad for Father’s Day. I like this one mucho.

Two more, even though that is breaking the rules…..
