I’m one of those people who gets excited by the idea of a new experience (like growing giant pumpkins, learning Mandarin, or knitting a cardigan) but who completely ignores how busy my life is already. My Yahoo! offers a wonderfully simple an effective way to slowly but surely learn a new skill with dozens of “A day” feeds.
One of the coolest and easiest examples of this is Spanish Word a Day which just gives you the word in both Spanish and English. Something about the pace of one word a day is both slow enough to actually retain the vocabulary and powerful that in a month or so you can actually accumulate some real knowledge.
Along similar lines but with a creative twist is 10 Random Words a Day which is exactly what the name describes. You won’t remember all the words, but if you just remember the meaning of exauthorize then your glance at the daily list is worthwhile.
If what you need are dumb and geeky jokes, you can always check out Star Wars Joke-a-Day.
To add all of the above suggestions, simply click here. Or, to find more feeds like these, go to the “Add Content” bar at the top of your My Yahoo! page, and type “a day” into the search box. The possibilities are as numerous as the days ahead.
