Internet is one of the easiest ways to reach the status of a star. If you are creative enough, you can even enter in the media. Andy Warhol's 1968 quote that "In the future everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes" is looking increasingly prophetic as the Internet age advances. Here are some ways in which you can become a web celebrity and have at least your 15 minutes of fame.

Learn the ins and outs of your computer. If you're still in the dark ages and you're relying on others to know how to manipulate everything on the computer while you just point and click, it's time to get net savvy. Get a couple of books, go online, and practice HTML. Be reassured that one day you're going to be able to change channels from ABC to CBS to social networks. Learn the basics so that when TV and the Internet truly become one, you'll be ready.

Focus on what might make you famous. While fame and becoming famous can be an elusive concept, what have you got to offer other people that will set you above the online masses?

Define your idea of "fame". Do you want to be famous everywhere for being an amazing personality, a tech goddess, or the most followed social butterfly? Or are you more focused, hoping to become famous for being the best in a particular area, such as being the best blogger on women's fashion, the best video creator of science fiction spoofs, the best nature photographer online, etc.? Determine your style of fame so that you can remain focused on your online purpose. The second kind of fame is more likely online because fame is more "intimate" than the fame of movies stars and other celebrities.

Expect your Internet quest for fame to require effort. If you want to be famous, be prepared to put in the hard yards. Working an hour a night and playing the rest of the day won't make you famous "just like that"! As well as being present, you'll need to create content of interest so that people have something to read or watch and enjoy. Do your best not to repeat the wheel, and definitely don't just cut and paste other people's content. Not only will your viewers have already read it but they'll be unimpressed by your laziness. That won't make you stand out online!
