Top sites to acquire new skills for personal development.

In this century, the web is widely used. I take that chance to explore new things, study, research, and acquire new skills. Yes, there's a lot of people out there who share their knowledge with something and we can learn from them for free. I've listed sites that offer free new skills among the top sites in Google, Yahoo, Bing search engines to save you a lot of time.


  • 100 Skills Every Man Should Know - Another compilation article with instructions to help you learn new skills.  This one says it’s geared for men, but I think most of these skills are applicable to women as well.
