Random Ramblings

Random Ramblings: Personal observations on a wide variety of subjects. Photographs of creatures and things that are taken on seeing the unusual as well as everyday things.


People often skirt widely away from this name when they see it as an option on a search engine, probably because they do not understand what they really are and how useful they can be.

If you have never used a forum then now is the time to start. Firstly, in the search engine type in the topic that you are interested in finding information on then add the word forum – example -

Google Search Engine

Fishing Forum


To get the most out of any forum you really need to join. That way you can see everything that is written – all the questions that have been asked and answered by others and ask your own …. don’t be shy.  You can have an anonymous name - like Alfred the Angler, FishingFriend or may be flipper fin. You can ask awkward questions, ask for tips or advice or offer your own. It is a brilliant way to find out things that are important to you and often get more in depth answers than looking for the same information from a website.

If you have a complex question then it is best to join several forums and type your question into all of them – that way you will have a wide spread of answers to consider and act upon.

I have used forums in the past. As a matter of fact I belonged to several groups. My problem was I could never keep them straight and then it got to the point where I just didn't have the time. They are a wealth of information though


How interesting and here I thought I knew about the internet!!! Thanks will look into this!

Hope you are doing well Polly:) Heidi
