Good Afternoon Monday + Chunks of Learning

Good Afternoon Monday & Hello New Week!

The weeks and months are whooshing by! We’re almost at the tail end of April, and we’ll be stepping into the second half of the year in a blink, I’m sure.

For me, the months are measured in terms of the ‘baby months’. Baby N is a little over 9 months and I now know what mothers mean when they say “With children at home, the days are long but the years are short”.

As the months pile up, as the days stretch and crawl and fly, as the year revolves on its axis, I’m jostling to fill up my time with learning. Lots of it. (And with all those gift certificates piling up, nothing better than spending them on large dollops of learning ;-).)

Like I mentioned last week, I’m finishing up a marketing course for freelance journalists. Its part boot camp and part interval training with exercises to flex our writing skills, build our marketing muscle and stretch our query-writing boundaries.

I’ve also jumped on to the blogging bandwagon. I mean, the-take-your- blog-up-a-few-notches bandwagon. It’s a delicious e-course by blogging diva Holly Becker of Decor8. I’d wanted to sign up ever since they’d launched this candy-party a few years ago – but it makes more sense to learn the recipe to crafting a beautiful blog now, when I have a place to curl up and write in.

So, a cupful of learning it is for me. Knowledge to nourish my brain with; new skills and information to add a dash of chutzpah to my otherwise routine days. 


How are you nourishing yourself as summer scrabbles up to speed?
