I’m one of those very highly ambitious people. I want to start a project and then 10 minutes later I have about 100 ideas stemmed from that one idea. One thing I wanted to do this Fall was head back to school to take some web design courses which includes learning more HTML, CSS, Photoshop, design etc. Unfortunately after I tallied everything up, it was going to cost me a pretty penny. Or several. Also the class times were hard to commit to, with the kids school year coming up that means we also have extra cirricular activities. I like a classroom setting but I set out to find maybe some training via the web. I was pleased to find Lynda.com. Lynda.com overs over 1410 online courses that include everything from photography, photoshop to learning WordPress. This is awesome because I definitely could use all of those to improve my blog!
Here is what Lynda has to offer:
– Stay current and keep skills sharp
– Learn innovative and productive techniques
– Access over 1,410 online courses, 24/7
– Video instruction by recognized industry experts
– Gain confidence and marketability
– Stop, rewind, replay movies as you need to
You may be thinking, why not just search Youtube. I’ve looked at Youtube for many things but the quality of Lynda.com is so professional, it makes it that much easier for learning. The videos are clear, precise and step by step.
I’ve watched a few videos and have gotten out of my “I’m scared of Photoshop” to hey look what I made!
This is another upcoming surprise to be launched hopefully in a few weeks!
I am really looking forward to learning more about redesigning my blog (hopefully not messing things up royally in the process) and working on my photography. I really need intense focus on my lighting!
