When I usually look at online news, I tend to look at the same 3 websites.

Sky News, RTE News and the Independent.

I like them. They’re easy to read, and easy to understand. All three offer a wide variety of news stories, from local and national, sport and showbiz to world news and ‘strange’ news. I’ve been visiting them for years now, and after checking my Facebook page and my e-mail account, they are my next port of call. I don’t know if it’s habit, but I enjoy their layouts, their writing and their appearence, and that’s what keeps me going back to them. They’re in my comfort zone.

I suppose the point of this blog is to get out of that zone. I’d like to look for news in different places, maybe some more foreign websites, or some smaller and lesser known about ones.

To begin, I’ve gone big. I’ve picked the New York Times.

My immediate concern is the layout. It’s very scattered and instantly confuses my eye. I don’t know where to look, let alone where to start! The different types of news are listed down the sides and when you click on one, for example ‘world’, it brings you to a new page. The stories are listed, and this page is easier to follow.

All in all, I’m not sure about the New York  Times website, it’s a little disorderly and not easy to follow like my usual news outlets.
