Sort Your Emails

You can sort your emails in programs like Outlook in many different ways. This time I will only give a tip for Outlook users, however, other email programs have similar features, as all of them are quite similar. Here it is how you can sort your incoming messages:

1. Open your Inbox and localize the bar at the top of it.
2. On this bar you will see categories like From, Subject, Received and Size.
3. Click on Size for example and your messages will be sorted from smallest to the largest.
4. Click on Subject, and your messages will be sorted in alphabetical order according to the first letter in the subject.
5. Click on From, and the messages will be arranged alphabetically according to the name of a sender.
6. Click on Received and the messages will appear in the order you received them.

I hope this will be useful, as organizing emails might often not seem that easy, especially if you are receiving a lot of them. Another important aspect to remember is to have proper spam protection, in order to avoid receiving dozens of spam messages every day. Eliminating spam can help you a lot in sorting your email.

External Hard Drives

If you use your computer a lot, and are smart enough to back up your important data from time to time, you know that external hard drives are very important. Floppy discs or even CDs are often not enough to back up everything. These days we gather so much information on our computers that so few megabytes of storage are no longer sufficient. I predict that in the future there will be an even bigger and bigger need for external hard drives. Looking at the progress that happened within the last few years, I see that computers contain a lot more information than they did ever before. I think it is safe to presume that we will be needing more and more external hard drives in the years to come. Remember to back up any documents and programs that you have stored on your computer.

Good Things about Social Networking

Because more and more people have access to Internet each year, social networking is gaining more and more on popularity as well. People take advantage out of social networks and treat them as an alternative for looking for friends. Whereas there are some networks that are better and more user friendly than others, let me here give you a few reasons why social networking can be so fun:

1. Contacting other people is relatively easy and very fast. All you need to do is to create an account which will only take you a few minutes. You will be asked a few simple questions after which you will be ready to start interacting with other users. The questions are very easy, and among other things you will need to provide a valid email address. Usually, you will not be obliged to do anything that you would feel uncomfortable with. Even if some user starts harassing you, you are free to quit as soon as you want.

2. Registration usually does not cost anything. There will be some exception to that, but the good thing about the Internet is the fact that many things are for free.

3. You can very easily meet friends who share the same interests as you.

4. You are given an option to upload your pictures, blogs, audio messages etc. I am sure that many of us like doing that, and the thought that somebody might be reading our articles is thrilling.

Starting a Small Business

There are millions of people who have their own business, and while it may not be that easy, the numbers prove that it can be done. These days a lot of people are thinking about selling their products on the Internet, but whether you want to take advantage out of technology is completely up to you. However, before starting your own business, it is important to take into account a few things:

  • What are your strengths? What talents do you have? What do you like to do? Your business will have a bigger chance of succeeding if you get involved in something you have potential to perform well.
  • What are your weaknesses? This may include activities you don’t like to perform. Do you like dealing with customers? Do you like advertising?
  • Another important thing to take into account is what are the opportunities out there. Maybe there is something going on which could give you an advantage over the competition. What are the current market conditions?
  • You should be also aware of any threats. The main threat might be competition, so you should check what is the overall situation. A threat to an online business may be also high hosting prices, or even large PayPal fees.
  • Those are a lot of questions, but answering them honestly will save you a lot of time and money, while ensuring that your business will have a larger chance to succeed.
