Note: I'm not paid by Instructables to do this. I've received these pro-memberships through contests and having my projects featured on Instructables.
Instructables is a site that encourages people to DO things. The site provides a platform for DIYers to share their projects, and the projects shared are informative and inspiring. The site is wonderful for children and teenagers because it encourages planning, creating, writing, photographing/illustrating, etc. It's a great learning experience overall and not just for kids. There are loads of tutorials from painting a wall to installing a patio. Some of the projects have been featured on television shows like The Colbert Report.

What to DoLeave a link to this in a new blog post. Leave a comment on this post with the link to the post and your email address (e.g., funemailname at domain dot com).
Note: I will not use your email address for anything except to send you the pro-membership code.
The PrizeThe first 10 people to leave a comment will receive a 3-month pro-membership for Instructables.
Didn't make it in time for the first 10? Leave a comment anyway because I'll randomly select someone to receive a 1-year pro-membership (value: $23.40). The first 10 people will also be in the running for the 1-year pro.
The advantage of having a pro-membership is having fewer advertisements, being able to print PDFs of favorite projects to keep handy, being able to see the steps all on a single page, etc. It really does improve the experience of using Instructables.
