Thanks to my recent mention on Lifehacker, Iâ€™ve had a bit more traffic than usual. It seems only fair to write something in return. For the last month, Iâ€™ve been keeping track of useful Lifehacker articles â€“ pieces that really show (in my opinion) the most interesting themes of their blog. Hereâ€™s a breakdown of why itâ€™s worth checking in from time to timeâ€¦
The hive five articles â€“ Lifehacker uses reader polls to gather â€œbest ofâ€ research. This can range from best journaling tool (winner pen and paper) to best people search engine (winner pipl.com) In a world of a billion choices, five is a much more manageable number and these articles let you head straight for the cream.
Productivity tips â€“ Over the years (and it has actually been a few), Iâ€™ve learned more about productivity than anything else from Lifehacker. Maybe itâ€™s just an area of interest, but it was here that I first learned about Getting Things Done by David Allen or 43 Folders by Merlin Mann or the printable products of David Seah. For a quick view of the big fish in productivity ideas on Lifehacker, try this link out.
Finally, letâ€™s not forget the day to day tips (the traditional lifehacks) like how to make your own drano. These were the basis of the original site and itâ€™s what you might call a strong area for the Lifehacker team. Check out the DIY articles or try searching the Lifehacker for tips in any area â€“ chances are good that someone has written or posted something.
Thanks again to the Lifehacker team for the shout out.
