When you begin blogging, it is very much a step of faith. You really have no idea exactly what God wants to do with all those blog posts but you want to be obedient – and so you write. Well, at least, that is my story. And, as a very new blogger, I’m sure I still do not know even the beginning of where this blog could lead. However, I have already been blessed. In many ways. Discovering new community, meeting other bloggers and reader comments are all encouraging.
I so enjoy Five Minute Friday. Kate is the host of Five Minute Friday and recently I had the opportunity to beta-test her new e-course – the Start-up Guide for Online Writers. I have never done anything quite like this. Not only am I a newbie blogger but I have not done an online course before, (yes, I am that old!) so I did not really know what to expect. However, the course was great.
I will admit, there were times when I began to feel overwhelmed. No fault of the material – just my naivety mixing with my insecurities and realizing there is so much that can potentially be done when writing online. But whether you are a beginner like me, a blogger that is ready to go to the next level or even a more experienced writer – this course is, for sure, beneficial for everyone. It is chock full of resources! So many ideas, how-tos, and links to help you reach whatever goals you might have for writing online.
The course is available beginning today. It is only $19.99 through the 19th. You can check it out here. I’m not being paid for my review. I just offered to give my honest feedback – and I thought the course was super helpful.
A few more recent blessings –
* Sleeping with the windows open kind of weather!
* Although a stressful week for one family member…I can see God obviously working.
* Vacation plans were postponed because of the storm, but we still are able to go away this weekend to celebrate our anniversary. God’s timing is perfect!
