Got Information? Why Not – It’s Free!

| 1 Comment

I can’t tell you how many times I use Google a day. Whether I’m looking up a local restaurant or guides on how to code a drop-down list, I turn to the the search giant to help me on the day-to-day. It’s a must for me to stay informed of new and emerging technology, not only because I’ll use it as a part of an overall campaign but because it’s vital to know how they could affect said campaign. Because of this, I scour blogs and tweets from sources that I trust and respect.

When it comes to news, I find myself checking in with Twitter and other social sites.  And I’m not alone. It’s likely that I’ll hear about a significant person’s death or a earthquake first on Twitter or Facebook. It’s so awesome as a breaking news source that your local news station uses social media to get information on up-to-the-minute stories.

So what’s my point? Well, even though we have so many resources for news and information – there are still people out there who don’t take advantage of it. Now I won’t go on to lecture you about why you should stay up on current industry trends or get a Twitter account – but why wouldn’t you want to? It’s FREE! Come on, everyone loves free! Just open up your web browser and BAM! You’ve unlocked a wealth of information, right at your fingertips.

The next time your find yourself bored, type in a question on Google and read through the results. Check out the Wikipedia homepage and read up on some history. Go to http://www.w3schools.com/ and learn how to build a website! You’ll be happy you did it, and smarter too!

Before I leave you, let me share some of my favorite resources. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

  1. So true. In the past, technology had certain barriers. Setting up a website could be pretty expensive, especially in the early days when registration and hosting wasn’t cheap.

    Now it’s beyond cheap. In many cases, online publishing is absolutely free. Almost every social channel has a $0 entry fee. There are some freemium services, but it’s mostly all free.

    Good reminder.
