Howopia is a delightfully little site that concentrates on providing Guide's for doing (almost) absolutely everything! You name it and it's probably on there. Here are a few of my favourites;
*How to sort out Childcare
*How to connect with your Newborn (for the Dads)
*How to go Shopping with your Toddler in tow
*How to make the World's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
*How to Cure Cradle Cap
They have much much more than the small selection I have chosen and they're written by people like you and I. You can write for the website which I think is fantastic and you can get paid for it too, bonus! Using your own experiences to make some money and help others is always a good thing. Howopia's mission "is to share knowledge for the masses by the masses". What a brilliant idea!
The founders behind this genius site are Mark Smith and Nick Beeny. Both have a wealth of knowledge and over 30 years experience between them. Mark with over 20 years in publishing and digital media and Nick with over 10 years in online marketing, early stage and start-up online businesses.
Reading some of the How To Guides, I actually find them very useful and interesting and the one for making the world's best chocolate chip cookies will most certainly be trailed in my house soon. The recipe is so simple and well written even I could bake these! This is what I like most about the site, their How to Guides are well written and simple so that anyone can easily understand them. For me it is important that how to guides are straight talking, no one needs confusion when you are trying to do something for the first time. The more basic the instructions the better I say.
Overall brilliant site, can't fault it. Very user friendly, great how to guides and layout. I will be using this site myself in future.
