Practical Stuff

In my opinion, one of the best things about the Internet is how quick, cheap, and easy it is to learn new skills and figure out how to do stuff.  From learning new recipes to discovering new DIY projects, we no longer have to go to the library or bookstore to look at reference books, hire someone to do small tasks that we simply don’t know how to do (although from a cost-effectiveness standpoint and also to promote local businesses this is still a worthwhile venture), or improvise solutions that may or may not work.

Of course, there aren’t always great “how to” articles and videos out there on everything (though I think it’s slowly getting there).  Also, not every set of instructions is very helpful or organized in a way that makes sense to me.  So while I typically Google whatever it is I’m trying to figure out how to do, I’m going to start compiling a list of things I’ve had to figure out, in hopes that if I ever have to do those things again I won’t have to do the same research I did before.
