Creating buzz with how to guides

Writing how to guides is a great way to educate people as well as a great way to build links. Last week Chanpory Rith from [LifeClever](http://www.lifeclever.com/) wrote a unique how to guide on [dressing like a Mac](http://www.lifeclever.com/2006/09/07/how-to-dress-like-a-mac/) which drew a lot of buzz.
