If you’re an expert at something or think you’ve got a special skill to show the world, now’s your chance. “Instructables,” the awesome how-to website is sponsoring a “Teach Me Fast” video contest with “Forbes.” All you have to do is demonstrate how to do something in 30 seconds or less.
I know you have some weird ability or unusual trick that you could teach others. Just record your video, upload it to YouTube, Blip or some other hosting site and embed it on the “Instructables” site. Then just sit back and wait for people to vote for your video as their favorite. The grand prize winner will receive a “Flip” video camera, a T-shirt and some cool patches and stickers, not to mention bragging rights for your video being the hands down favorite. Don’t delay. The entry deadline is September 13, 2009 and the online voting will begin September 14.
If you can’t think of any unique skills that you have to share, check out the contest and vote for your favorite. Maybe seeing someone else’s unique talent will inspire you to remember something that you are famous for.
Even if you don’t want to make a video, do yourself a favor and check out some of the cool postings on the “Instructables” website. This site can give you easy instructions on how to do anything. If you want to learn how to do it, someone on “Instructables” can show you how.
