  1. Funny thing.. I’ve been “doing” the web since ’95.. and I’m reasonable clued up on most of the online space, but I find myself Googling “how to” blogposts and forum posts.

    Regardless of how trivial we think our posts are.. there is always someone out there to whom it will be a lifesaver.

    Keep up the good work

    1. I know exactly what you mean, I often find myself looking for tuts on the simplest things (like some very basic html stuff). The impetus for these videos was actually my mom. I’m busy building a blog for her business and she’s going to need to know how to use it without calling me 5 times a day, so I figured that the best way to ensure that she had all the info she needs was to create little videos like these. Hopefully there will be many more to come.
