Hi everyone! I realize that some of my subscribers are Windows novices and some are experts, but I have found that when it comes to learning the ins and outs of Windows, a great resource across the board is the How-To Geek website (http://www.howtogeek.com/)
Each post focuses on how to do a specific task with your computer or a good trick or shortcut. The topics cover everything from common error messages to weird process that run in the background to tricks of the trade in popular software (like Microsoft Office).
What’s nice about this site is that you can subscribe to the site using your favorite RSS reader (or via email), just like many of you do to my blog. I currently use My Yahoo! as my RSS reader and have probably a good 70 to 80 modules in there. So, usually about once or twice a day, I skim through my page to see any worthwhile news. And I will tell you that the How-To Geek site usually makes me click on through to read the whole topic.
But don’t take my word for it – I think the 44,000+ subscribers the “Geek” already has to his blog speaks volumes in itself.
So, if you haven’t already, check out the http://www.howtogeek.com/ website and let me know what you think.
As a bonus, the “Geek” recently posted a review of my Just the Computer Essentials book (http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/book-reviews/book-review-just-the-computer-essentials-vista/). Shameless plug – yes, but definitely not the only reason to check out the site! With the wealth of useful information, you’re bound to be a loyal subscriber!
Have a great week, everyone!
