8 Independent Online sites we love

Hey WYLDones, 

Hope everyone is doing well at home, we are on the home stretch now... and we hope you've been making the most of couch time, self-care time, long bath time (if you've got one and no kids lol) or spending some well overdue time with partners and kids. 

It certainly is an unusual time, and it is very easy to get lost in all the media, the social media and negative commentary that is swirling around. At it can be hard to tame our own emotions and stay positive. However, one good thing that this #stayathome Circuit Breaker has allowed us to do, IS spend more time reading (digital or hard cover), possibly learning new skills and working on the quality of our mental health (which we understand in these extreme circumstances is severely  difficult for those who suffer generally with mental health issues or for those who have developed them whilst being in isolation). This has become such an in-depth topic of conversation globally and I will be posting on regularly over the coming months - but for now - hang in there guys - you've totally got this - remember - One - Day -At - a Time). 

We ourselves have been trying to manage the balancing act of life constantly inside, and during our downtime (even small windows) we have found some amazing independent online sites that share the news today, have entertaining and informative angles, diverse points of views, humorous articles and engaging videos. We have listed them all below - hope you enjoy checking them out - ESP if you've been looking for some different material from your norm. Let us know your thoughts or please do share with us what you've been reading online! ( We will also share some hard covers we've been sinking our heads into later down the track!) 


Love Kb & theWYLDcrew xx
