I take advantage every chance I get to learn something new. I think it has to do with the fact that I get bored so easily so I have to find something to keep the brain occupied.

I want to share a few free resources I found online:

Blogging for Beginners - For those of you interested in learning more about blogging, blogger Darren Rowse has started a series that teaches you how to blog. The advice in the series is great for all bloggers, novice and old- schoolers alike.

Free classes from MIT-(yes, that MIT). MIT's OpenCourseWare is a free and open educational resource for faculty, students, and self-learners around the world.

Letter folding at Letterfu- I know, not that many people write letters anymore, e-mail is faster and cheaper. But in case you do decide to send someone a letter, learn how to fold it into an envelope by clicking on that link.

Teach your cat to shake hands - You know I'm going to try this one, you don't even have to ask.

How to remove a CD protection label - Yes I still buy CDs. And yes, I always end up breaking the case trying to get that protection label off. Here is a way to get around that. Read the comments section in the link for more ideas.

Make a better podcast - Carson McComas, of WorkHappy.net, has some great tips for making a great podcast. I will make sure to take his advice into account for my next podcast.

How to become a real computer geek - read up nerds.

That's all for now, happy learning!
