5 things to do next year 2013
2012 has been a very fruitful year in which I am sure you have been undertaking major objectives marcasteis you before the end of the previous year. All, with the procrastination I have left a hole for it, of course. Given that the year ends in a few days, it is time to think about what you want to do in 2013.
The next five entries will give you an idea of what you can do with your computer and / or Internet in 2013, it should not be the only things you do, being the infinite possibilities and time, 365 days, enough to undertake anything you can think of.
Backing up your data
Not to scare us, have a good backup of your data should be, or should be, the first thing you do in 2013.
Do you have to make a backup copy of every piece of content on our computer? It may be a good option, but the following items should be given preference:
- MP3 Files
- Own contents (papers, etc)
- Important Documents
Where to begin? Well, first we take an external hard drive (or two, better safe than sorry) and keep all those contained herein. We can also choose to use the cloud and its services: Dropbox or SkyDrive are great choices. The next step is to use specific applications for backing virtually identical to retrieve when necessary.
Open a blog
Why not write your own content rather than posting links to information on the Internet written by others? Internet we all are, and contribute content to the network itself is can be a very rewarding experience.
Are you passionate about software, movies, music, or anything else? Share your impressions, stories or comments about them on your own blog, or, perhaps, open up a bit and focus your writing on a more personal level. On the Internet you can find plenty of resources to start writing on your own blog, and the many free platforms-such WordPress.com , Blogger or Tumblr – you do make a new blog is one of the simplest things and interesting thing to do in 2013 with your computer or portable device.
Organize your web presence
Organize your presence on the Internet is one of the best things you can do with the eating of the year. Let’s start by four basis points to reach there where we wish:
- Close the accounts that do not use services
- Organize our mail folders
- Filter publications we consume
- Organize your contacts in social networks
Why keep registered services no longer use? Do you receive daily newsletters with content that was not interest you? It attacks the root problem directly, unsubscribing on the official website.
Gmail and other webmail services encourage us to not delete mail because it is not necessary, but sometimes it can backfire. First, because although we have a lot of capacity, this will gradually depleted, and second because having couriers social networking notifications, for example-it just takes longer to access the emails in really important. Putting some order can be a very good idea.
Do you use a feed reader to keep abreast of what’s happening in the network and in the world? If you do you may have probably long outdated subscriptions and entries accumulate on pages that have stopped following. Remove to optimize our reading should be one of the points of the organization of your presence on the Internet, like contacts or likes in different social networks: Tired of reading the tweets of certain contacts? The unfollow is the solution, like the Unlike on Facebook, for example. This applies to any other social network.
Install a different operating system
Continue your learning should be a must in the coming year, as we shall see in the next point, and nothing better than starting to learn to use a different operating system. Changes between Windows and Linux and vice versa are usually hard, especially those who are of a simple system like asking Microsoft to one more of us like most Linux distributions.
Fortunately we are almost in 2013 and Ubuntu systems do painless as changing operating system. Change? The use, because we have no one to renounce in favor of the other.
Learning to use Mac OS X can also be a very good choice, and for the less daring, switch between Windows 7 and Windows 8 may be a good option too.
The network is not only a gateway to communicate with millions of people regardless of where they live, but also a great portal to learning. From Wikipedia, where you can access millions of articles in which we can even bring our own knowledge, to sites dedicated to language learning other skills such as programming.
You should just go to Google or your favorite search engine and start with a term that will draw attention.
And you, what do you propose towards the year that begins in a few days?Tags: 2013, backup, Ideas
