SoYouWanna: Unique Site Offers a Wealth of Information

Over the holidays, I stumbled across a unique web site that has already paid research dividends for me. The site is  It claims that this service “teaches you how to do all the things nobody taught you in school.” The opening page tells you just about anything you’re going to want to know about the site. It’s very easy to navigate and offers a wealth of information.

Although the site provides what seems to be an endless supply of information, all of it is broken down into sections for speed and convenience. Those categories are:

  • apartments
  • beauty & fashion
  • bizarre
  • education
  • entertainment
  • etiquette & custom
  • food & drink
  • games and hobbies
  • health & fitness
  • lifestyle
  • money
  • shopping
  • sports
  • technology
  • travel
  • work

Once you’ve identified your category of interest, simply click on the heading, and you will find a number of questions to focus on. Place a mental SYW (So You Wanna) in front of each question, and you’re on your way. Click on your question of choice, and you’ll be whisked away to a detailed answer, broken down into key steps which are identified at the top of each article in the event you want to skip ahead to a particular point. In addition to the details, you’ll find a number of links to other sources of related information.

To illustrate the diversity of topics, here are just a very few examples:

SYW (So You Wanna) …

  • Find cheap airline tickets
  • Fake an appreciation for art
  • Go whitewater rafting
  • Give a massage
  • Buy a cell phone
  • Design your own web page
  • Write a business plan
  • Host a wedding shower
  • Cure a hangover
  • Be a movie extra
  • Use feng shui
  • Improve your complexion
  • Change your name
  • Get a pilot’s license
  • Use eBay without getting ripped off
  • Flatten your abs

This is just a small sample of what you’ll find on this site that I think you’ll want to add to your resource options. The site even has an area called “Mini-Wanna’s” for those of us who want to learn how to do incredibly specific things or are incredibly lazy and refuse to read the full length SYWs.

So If You Wanna learn how, go to, and you’re on your way.
