I am interested in finding out about resources related to website usability and UX. Also, if the resources contain examples, that would be great.

A quick list of some of my standard resources. There are many more out there:
For questions and answers on UX, there's this very site: https://ux.stackexchange.com/
Of different intent, but a valuable resource is the IXD site: http://www.ixda.org/discussion
An interesting list with examples of common UX errors and how to solve them: http://uxmyths.com/
A somewhat overwhelming list of links on UI design: http://www.theuxbookmark.com/2010/08/interaction-design/a-monster-list-of-ui-guidelines-style-guides/
And don't go too far without at least looking at Nielsen: http://www.useit.com/ After all these years the guy still prompts more arguments than almost everyone else combined, which is a good thing.
