Learning and Continuing Education

I once met a scrapbooker who told me, "I never take (scrapbooking) classes." I don't remember, she might have taught a class or workshop here or there. I thought, "How sad." I, myself, love to learn. I always have. To each their own, my mother always said. I've signed up for several classes and events this spring, online. (Note: I am not an affiliate of any of these programs)

I have decided to continue on with Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers with shimelle. I enjoyed Blogging for Scrapbookers, and I started coming out of my shell a little tiny bit because of her prompts. (Yet that is HUGE.) So I decided to take the second course to continue on this journey.

My original goals in BFS were:
1) to blog about all forms of scrapbooking: paper, hybrid, and digital as well as art journaling, challenges, some photography, and scrapbooking publications;
2) connect with fellow scrapbookers;
3) offer tutorials on all forms of scrapbooking and also art journaling;
4) share deals that I hear about regarding scrapbooking;
5) share class projects that I complete.  I suspect that you, the reader, like me, are a TOTAL scrapbook addict so hopefully my blog will continue to grow. I want this class to help my blog be more interesting and FUN for the reader.

For Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers, shimelle suggests thinking about the following goals and questions:

Do you want to blog more often?  Yes, I want to blog consistently
Write posts that feel more special or important? Yes
Increase the number of readers? Yes
Have more conversation in the comment section? Absolutely
Get your family to read and interact via your blog? Perhaps
Start to make money with your blog? No
Use your blog to help get on a design team or other scrapbooky thing? No, not necessarily. I'm already satisfied with the teams I'm on.
Use your blog to help organize the stories you want to scrapbook? Perhaps here and there

Shimelle says, "But those are just some starters to get you thinking. Please remember everyone has different goals so don't feel like you have to have the same goals as any other blog. You might blog for yourself, your family, or for a wider audience. It's all up to you - it's just good to think about it in advance so you know you'll apply the course to what you want to achieve!"

nice breakdown of what you are looking for from Beyond Blogging - I need to sit down and think about what I want from the class. I love classes (ever so slightly addicted!) but rarely participate 100% - but I like to play along!
