A few years back, by default, I would open

Google, Gmail, WebmasterWorld, server WHM and my websites for the first few minutes to go warm up for the day.

I find myself accessing social media far too frequently nowadays. What are the sites you catch up on daily basis?

AdSense, other affiliate stats, Gmail, Hotmail, FB, and bank sites (company & personal) first thing in the morning. WW (obviously!), AdSense, FB, and CNN throughout the day.

For news, it's the New York Times. Then there are several blogs that I check. This is the only message board. I hang out here waiting for approvals or call backs (when I should be doing bookkeeping, which I need to do right now...)

Like everyone here, no doubt, I created a FB account to help clients manage their Pages as an admin. People found and they wanted to be "friends" and I thought, "well, sure." Now I know all of this stuff (politics, mostly) about these casual acquaintances that I was much happier not knowing. So, I never go there unless it's for work.

My sister has an FB account and did not friend me because "I don't want you seeing what idiots my friends here are." Right.

Well, something along these lines, but depending on the day, and my specific task.

Gmail; twitter; WebmasterWorld; forums.DevShed (VB.net & C/PIC development); intranet(When I get time to add stuff to it..); BBC Radio2; Google.

And since I found the pin feature on chrome they normally open automatically :) Sweet!

Cheers,

webmasterworld lately has been my first choice.

I also look at a local site to check weather. North East Kansas is unpredictable sometimes.

I'll check one or two of my own sites just to confirm they're still online as well and that my host hasn't done something stupid.

And I may look at some logs.. to try to improve.

That's about it unless I'm trying to spend money.

If I'm buying something I'm all over the place.

Something I don't do often enough. I found a couple of days ago that a photo hosting company that I had been using had shut down without notice. The photo gallery had been off line for a couple of weeks

I left one out... email is always first. That's an everyday ongoing thing.

I may have fires to put out and if someone's going to yell at me I'd rather it was in an email than on the phone.

email, gmail, txt message, WebmasterWorld, server logs.
News in English and FR, at least 4 newspapers
and my latest as I am not afraid to say Al Jazeera.

In my very first job I was working closely with the CEO he was every morning fast reading 5 or 6 newspapers representing all politics and financial opinions including the communist newspaper
One needs to have a broader sight on many events in order to get at least some sort of ideas of what's boiling down.
