Everything I learned - I learned from YouTube...

By
Real Estate Agent

Well - not exactly - but I COULD'VE! Many of you don't know about the amazing educational tool YouTube can be. I dare you to try to find a task that isn't on YouTube - it is just overflowing with helpful people providing play by play examples of day to day activities. I pulled a few links for you guys for some examples.

How to up Twitter - http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=setting+up+twitter+account&aq=1

How to set up a Facebook Fan Page - http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=setting+up+facebook+fan+page&aq=f

How to Blog on Active Rain - http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=how+to+blog+active+rain&aq=f

How to make QR Codes - http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=how+to+make+qr+codes&aq=f

How to get Listings -

See? It's nuts. So next time you're stuck on something that's making you want to pull your hair out - even before you google it - YouTube it!

I found two more links that I think are pretty important things to know.... you can thank me later!! ;)

How to Beat Super Mario -

How to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich

On top of all of this amazing education that YouTube provides - it's also really good for watching super cool videos like this: (The most AMAZING safari experience ever... and don't worry - no animal dies! Promise!)

Have a great night everybody!

Wow~ That was an amazing animal video!

I learned how to repair a broken screen on my cell phone by watching a YouTube video?

YouTube never ceases to amaze me and rarely dissapoints when I go looking for a tutorial on how to use a new piece of equipment since these days it is rare to get a manual worth anything.  I had watched that video last year and yes, it is also amazing.

Emily you are so right and a very good video! In the short amount of time I have had my YouTube account which is around one year I am getting close to 300 short videos. Some videos are educational and some well kind of FUN, and I can't believe your father is from Ely ... such a small town. And you in BC ... how did you end up there? Are we facebook  friends let me look and have a wonderful evening!

You truly can learn anything on Youtube, but I am guessing that little calf didn't make it.

Emily, I love it.  Anytime I am stumped in Photoshop or some other computer program I just search YouTube and there is bound to be an Instructional Video someone has posted.  Thanks for sharing the links!

Emily,  It seems that I am using YouTube more all the time. Last night I was watching to learn more about setting up the Thesis Theme for WordPress. Although tonight I just watched a few fun videos.
