How to Use the Internet to do Anything

Posted by on March 27th, 2012

Once upon a time learning how to do something usually meant buying a book or taking a class. If you wanted to learn a certain craft, or how to clean something, you may have to go to a specialized store and find someone to show you how to do whatever it is you want to do. With the wide spread use of internet sites like youtube, ehow and wikihow, those days are long gone.

On these websites you can now find step by step tutorials on anything from arts and crafts, home remodeling or even advice on social situations. It’s as easy as opening up a search engine and typing in, How To …, and presto.

Although wikihow is my personal favorite site for social advice (such as how to make friends, or how not to be socially awkward), sites like youtube are better for visual learners who want to learn how to plant a garden, build a table, or even learning how to shave.

For arts and crafts, the internet is an endless resource of personal blogs. Stumbleupon.com, is a website that searches the internet randomly according to a broad description of what you are looking for. Whenever you’re in the mood for a craft, recipe, or bit of information, this website is a vast source of inspiration.

Whatever it is you want to do, there is a website somewhere that can teach you how to do it.
