The long awaited Blogging Your Way e-course kicked off last week and I have never been happier to be a student!
I found myself sitting on my bed with the laptop ala Carrie Bradshaw watching the web casts and reading through the student forum of bloggers introducing themselves. So many students from all across the world and a few from Australia too which I'm happy about it's always great to meet some fellow bloggers closer to home.
Week 1 was a bit of reading, interacting with the other students, and some blog pimping our blog bios and main page. Thinking like a boss there were also topics on life/work balance, working from home, and when to ask for help.
I did the homework on the first day being the nerd I am! It was a to do list that we had to post onto the forum - putting it on the forum for everyone to see definitely makes me more inclined to get things done and make some changes. My to do list is printed and stuck on my fridge at home as a reminder of what my goals are.
I've never done an online course before and after a bit of clicking around the website it makes sense to me now, the layout and how we will interact with one another and how we will be taught from Holly and the other teachers. Straight from the get go Holly has been professional friendly and engaging.
I can't wait to see what Week 2 brings!
