4 Reasons Why Procrastination Can Be a Good Thing
As a college student, you’ve likely heard your professors advise you against putting off until tomorrow, assignments you c...Productivity
Learning a new skill requires diligence, patience, and lots of motivation. When we first sit down to start a new hobby or project, we can easily get stuck. We spend so much time figuring out where to start and what to do that by the time we find everything we need to put a plan together, it’s already time to go back to work or head to bed.
This is where Bublup comes in handy. Using Bublup effectively, we can easily store and organize all the materials needed to start practicing and learning that new skill so that when motivation strikes, we’re not wasting time getting ourselves ready to learn – we can just get right to learning.
For starters, we need to outline the structure we’re going to be using to save information, practice what we learned, store assets we need for projects, and present those projects to other people we want to work for or with. Your parent folder should represent the skill you’re trying to learn – let’s go with “coding” for this example:
Create Top-Level Folders
Top-level folders can contain as many subfolders as you want. In this example, you could drop helpful YouTube or video lessons into your video lessons folder. The Full Courses folder could be subdivided into another bucket of sub-folders to keep the materials for each course you’re taking separate. Your Portfolio folder could have sub-folders that match up with each of the projects you work on so that when you turn that folder into a roll, it looks good and is easy for other people to navigate!
You can easily save web links, photos, videos, documents, and any other file types in your Bublup folders. Using the Tools & Resources folder as an example, you’ll want to include:
There are multiple ways to add items from both desktop and your mobile device.
To set up email forwarding, go to:
Once complete, simply forward emails to your username @mybublup.com (i.e.,: email@example.com).
>As you hone your new skill, you’ll likely produce some projects, whether that’s apps, websites, recording songs, or a photo gallery. You can store your projects in your portfolio folder and then present your work beautifully by turning it into an instant webpage called a roll.
When you create a roll, the sub-folders in your portfolio folder will get turned into sub-sections on the roll itself. This is why it’s important to organize your work by type or individual project inside your folders. Rolls also allow for customization; some options to think about are:
