Learning by Teaching (or: Escaping the Plateau)

Adventures Offline

I’ve recently started to feel like the time I’m spending on the internet isn’t amounting to much more than, well, time spent.

I’m not learning new things or improving existing skills, everything I consume is just a repetition of things I’ve already known. It’s a bit like being in a giant echo chamber, where everyone is just bouncing off everyone else without adding anything to the conversation.

So I’m declaring and internet holiday of sorts. Starting today (why wait?) I’m going to spend time on the internet in a focused pursuit of learning something new.

It might be new painting techniques for the horses, or ways to manage feral druid rotations for WoW, or better ways to track inventory for the micro-business, or how to code a my own delivery system for stories/verses, or outlining novels… there’s a whole wealth of things I could be learning out there.

And then? Then I’m going to teach it you, dear readers! ๐Ÿ˜€

(Because the best way to learn something is to teach it and/or it will amuse others.)
