Kick Off The New Year With A Resolution You Can Keep
There is possibly nothing better than learning new skills – it opens your mind, inspires you and improves your creativity. So why not set your new year resolution to take a path to self-improvement, and let’s face it you are more likely to stick to that than the normal diet and exercise regimes.
I used to be a subscriber with Lynda.com, and they do have great courses, but they have a monthly subscription and I found there really weren’t enough courses that were relevant to me to justify the monthly expenses. Then in the last couple of months I stumbled across Udemy.com which is packed with great courses and loads on writing, self-publishing and social media so it was right up my street. You pay per course and then have permanent access to the courses to take in your own time.
I’ve picked up a selection of the most relevant for courses for writers – check them out……
