It’s been a crazy busy week here at CSHQ and I HAVE to share why with you!
I was the victim of a crime a few years ago and through official referral went on two programmes to aid my recovery and mental well-being. I found it brilliant yet I found some flaws that didn’t sit right with me.
It kept niggling at me for years then over the last few months I had an epiphany:
I’m a qualified tutor!
So after the pandemic hit, and I’d graduated from University, the live comedy stopped and I started job-hunting. The job search proved to be fruitless, I thought right, you won’t employ me? Screw you! Your loss I’ll employ MYSELF!
I have been working all week creating content loosely based on those 2 programmes but:
Accessible to all
No official referral needed
Suitable for all situations not just that specific situation the original training I did pertained to.
Basically, I’m here creating course content on the principles of empathy and supporting others, while providing strategies of coping methods and mindset shifting to build confidence and assertion. My aims are to raise awareness of the impact on each of us within mis-aligned interpersonal relationships and to provide tools that encourage safer and more informed choices in our lives going forward.
Finally, every WP BloggingU course is complete, I’m just working through the Photography ones now in between preparing to launch another aspect of CSHQ.
Hope you’re enjoying the content so far, please do let me know in the comments below.
I’m really excited to share with you all that I’m going to be launching a digital course! Do stay tuned over the next few days to find out more about this. In the meantime, give CSHQ a follow on here and on social media channels and you can even subscribe via email to be in the know!
This past week here on the Bloggersphere, I noticed the overlap between WordPress courses in the sense that fundamentals already covered some of the branding and growth topics, for example. So I was actually ahead of the schedule and able to review anything I was unsure of.
I’ve completed Learning the fundamentals which is a 14-day course and completed the 5-day Commenting Basics course so I’m continuing on with the others.
It has been a great exercise in refreshing and developing my WordPress skills. It has also helped me prioritise the way I want to post as in timing, topics and how I’ll deliver my posts going forwards.
Going to put Developing your eye I and II on the back burner til I finish the rest of the courses and then go back over each task to produce another series pertaining to these photography programmes BUT I’m going to put my spin on them so they fit in with the ConsultingWriting and Comedy pages.
Sadly, I also noticed that a lot of the resources links all land on pages that no longer exist or have been listed as private. Also the comments sections have all been closed so you can’t connect easily with others nor find support. And I noticed that all the courses seem to have ceased being active, vibrant online communities since March 2015.
Such a shame that no one is updating BloggingU anymore. Please do let me know your thoughts on this below especially if you’re currently studying too.
