A few years ago, several people encouraged me to tell my story by writing a blog. I never realized how many different things a writer needs to do in the blogging world. Many times I tried to quit, feeling inadequate and incapable.
But God kept nudging me to keep writing. So I try but still feel out of my depth. Then, I found Five Minute Friday and Fistbump Media. They helped answer some of my questions and learn more about the nuts and bolts of writing a blog.
Practical Writing Guide
Kate Motaung, host of Five Minute Friday, wrote The Start-Up Guide for Online Writers and gave me the opportunity to preview this new course. I found helpful advice, concrete steps for what to do next, and resources to help me continue to move forward in my writing journey.
The Start-Up Guide for Online Writers includes five units:
1: Begin with the Basics gives steps to help a fledgling writer get started. It also provides several links to resources every online writer needs. In addition, a bonus pack is part of this unit.
2: Find and Build Community Online explains the importance of networking through social media. More links and ideas about building an online presence are provided.
3: Grow Your Knowledge reminds us of the importance of learning and gives resources for books to read, courses to take, and experts who can give valuable ideas.
4: Join a Writing Support Group discusses the need for different methods for finding other writers to help along the way.
5: Next Steps reminds us we need to use what we learn in this course. Write goals and work toward achieving them.
Each part of this course was easy to use and provided a wide variety of resources that, because of the links, easy to find.
This week only, through September 19, this valuable course is only $19.99. Beginning September 20, the price will be $29.99.
Kate’s course gave me practical resources and was easy to use. If you want to improve your writing, this course will definitely help you!
