Knowledge Hound - The Web's biggest how-to directory!
Most of these articles come from my old website, Knowledge Hound. It was the web's first how-to directory; that is, a curated collection of third-party links. I founded the site in 1997 as How-To Heaven after becoming frustrated with how difficult it was to find tutorials. (This was long before Google came onto the scene.) Within a month of creation, the site garnered a national award from Earthlink, and visits quickly rose. In 1999, I joined forces with a silent partner and rebranded the site as Knowledge Hound. Our traffic grew dramatically. We were featured on TV by affiliate stations for NBC News and CBS News. In February of 2011, Google changed their search algorithm to downgrade all directory websites. In September of 2013, I finally gave up and deleted the Knowledge Hound directory, moving my focus to the 100+ articles that I've written. It's been a long and amazing journey.
