- There is so much out there. You have to focus and filter the information you are actually looking for. It helps to make a list of what you want to do just before you enter the Internet. You might get lost when you don’t keep focus on what you intended to do.
- Don’t always work by the list. Sometimes you discover something that is exciting enough that would absorb you completely. Just save the details, en put it on the next list. When it still feels good, you are onto something new.
- Keep track of what you did. Make notes of settings (digital or paper) so you can rely on the details you need to find things back again.
- Don’t always use the same computer. It is good to work on other computers too so you have a clear head on the codes and URL’s you need to work on.
- Realize that nothing goes on forever. The websites, blogs and other socal media will change. And if you don´t backup your data, all might get lost one of these days. Even backup your backup and try to find something back in your backup (so you know it works).
- Work secure. Don’t mention essential private data on public places. Identity Fraud happens when you least expect it. When there are security mesures possible on the network you are on. Eplore them and use what is workable for you.
- When things are looking to good to be true, it is probably a hoax or a scam. Be alert when you think you hit the jackpot.
These are just some tips I tell my students too. Learn from your mistakes, and don’t make them twice.
