Tip (noun) – A small piece of useful advice or information.
Knowledge (noun) – Everything that is known.
Going by their meanings, the two words are quite similar. But the way we interpret them is sometimes different. Knowledge conveys a larger body of useful information. A tip is something that seems almost inconsequential in comparison. Till you make use of it of course.
Daily tips are almost like ‘inside information’ or even recommendations that can help us take shortcuts through whatever we are attempting. It could be dicing potatoes or creating a startup. Tips are always welcome; in fact we are always in search of them. Perhaps, that’s why these ten websites can help us out with their collection of tips.
The site is a free reservoir of daily tips you can dip into and come out with a few gems. The focus is mainly on homemaking tips ranging from crafts to household DIY tips. Enter your email address and let your missus get something useful to ponder over every Wednesday. The site has been online since 2006, so you can expect a rich variety of tips to choose from.
This tip collection website gives you great ideas and solutions to everyday problems. The site which has been there for quite a while has a community behind it. You can subscribe to their Thrifty Fun Newsletter and stay updated with the latest tips from around the web. To add a dash of fun there is also the ThriftyFun weekly contest where $25 dollar prizes are up for grabs for the tips that receive the most “Thumbs Up” ratings. You can browse through the 80,000 strong assortment of tips by date or topic. You can also put in your questions too.
Did you know that there’s a difference between the terms ‘organic’ and ‘natural’?
Call this a tip exchange and you won’t be off the mark. TipWriter welcomes you with a large tag cloud of tip topics. Some tips are brief, some are detailed enough to be linked to external content. But most are good enough to remember and use. You can log-in with your Facebook account and share your own tips.
Nobody has all the answers but the web at least provides a way to get to some of them. The daily tips site has ‘Gurus’ or guides catering to the topics on the site and there are lots of them – from accounting to yoga. Across the topics, you can access more than 100,000 tips every day. New tips are added daily. You can subscribe to the tip of the day feed or the newsletter.
Tipstrs is geek centric with tips collated from the world of computers and technology; though the site also has collections on other topics too. How to hack a locked iPhone and how to access private Facebook photos are sure to garner eyeballs. You will find tips like these in the Hot Categories.
You can submit your own tips here, but the site seemed to have been quite choosy about publishing them because the stats show that only 9000 tips had been Okayed. DayTipper is dormant now, but the tips should remain handy for all time to come. DayTipper has interesting sections like a Hall of Fame and a Hall of Shame that can be read alongside the sections called Staff Picks and Undervalued. (Read Directory mention)
This site is more current and it is also in beta. TipsBase is an online community where you can find and share tips, tricks and advice on any subject ranging from autos to video games. The site also has a revenue sharing program generated from the AdSense revenue on the site. As I haven’t tried it, I really can’t say more on it.
This daily tips based site has completely gone green. It covers tips on living a green, eco-conscious life with a simple layout and a minimal fuss interface. You can add your own tips or read the ones that have been submitted so far.
Perhaps the only thing that’s more important than saving the planet is saving money. This site gives you 6,804 ways to do it. Take your pick from the tips submitted by the online community. (See Directory mention)
We have featured this neat video site many times before. It deserves a mention here because the 5 min duration long instructional videos are perfect as tips. The videos are regularly updated and they are quick to load, view, and understand.
There are a few more websites on daily tips around the web. But these seem to be the pick of the lot. Of course, when it comes to technology, you shouldn’t go far from the blog (and our own collection) you are reading right now. Pausing the shameless self-promotion, which other site have you bookmarked for a daily dose of tips? Let us know.
