Take Out Zine is a project of Caro Griffin and friends. It’s a real live paper zine! (and it’s digital too, but I love the retro paper version.) It’s also a terrific blog.
As I was catching up on the blog the other day, I saw this terrific series of posts called Getting It Together.
Each one is a helpful introduction or how to on a specific tech subject. This recent post on Tumblr is a clear, helpful explanation of what Tumblr is and why and how you might want to use it.
Here’s the post on Hosting 101.
The series continues! She’ll be addressing WordPress next.
These posts are perfect for you if you are in the situation where you don’t know what you don’t know. Caro sits you down, like a friend, and explains what you need to know. Then if you still need more information, you’ll be much more prepared to go out and find that, you’ll understand the issues and have the vocab. down.
