Since I shared my home office yesterday, I thought I would keep the theme going and share a few things that I have found to be incredibly helpful, whether I am trying to learn how to create graphics for my blog or trying to figure out a new and complicated knitting pattern. Here are some of my favorite online tools that I use in my home office nearly every day.
Never ever underestimate the power of youtube. Thanks to many generous users who spend hours creating tutorials, this platform is a gold-mine of information. Granted, you have to make the effort to watch the videos and try your hand at it, but considering that this is a free source, it really is incredible. I have taught myself how to knit and how to better use my DSLR by finding incredibly helpful tutorials on Youtube.
Unlike Youtube, Lynda.com is not free. However, it is still incredibly helpful and it’s where I have learned the most about graphic design elements and photography. To be clear, I am by no means an expert at either, but if you want to learn more about a specific skill, Lynda.com is an awesome source.
