Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the Skillshare Blogging Course, specifically the one on How To Create Content Consistently.
I’ve been blogging for a few years now but I’ve never actually taken a blogging course. YouTube ads have been showing me free Skillshare courses for ages so I finally decided to check them out.
With all this free time on my hands, I should be taking as many courses as I possibly can. What the hell was I thinking???
The signup process was quick and easy. Within a few minutes, I was taking my first class in the How To Create Content Consistently course (It’s a 7-day challenge but I did it in 1 go). Now, this isn’t something I struggle with necessarily, if you’re a regular on my blog, you can tell.
But there’s always room for improvement!
To prove that it’s actually a useful course – while doing a course on how to come up with content, I came up with content! This blog post is a portion of it.
I’m happy to see that I’ve already implemented some of the tips from the course so I’m already on the right track.
If you do the course day by day (instead of in 1 go like I did) then you can do the little challenges at the end of each section. Once you’re done, schedule your posts to publish.
I was busy sitting writing this very post in between listening to the content creation lessons. I also took course notes ( and people say I can’t multitask). Since I didn’t want to lose my train of thought, I kept jotting things down as they popped into my head.
The course is actually pretty useful. Although it’s probably more useful for beginner bloggers, it did help me with the writer’s block I was facing.
In a nutshell, the Skillshare course will teach you how to:
- get infinite ideas
- use your existing content to generate more blog posts
- turn questions (from readers or whoever) into blog posts
If you’re looking to up your blogging game then you should definitely check Skillshare out and take a few of the free blogging courses. If you pay for Skillshare, you’ll get access to so much more!
One of the tips given by Filipa Canelas was to have a place to keep track of all of your blog post ideas, I use a notebook as well as my cellphone (when my notebook is not around). I have so many unwritten and unfinished blog posts I have actually lost count.
Another takeaway from the course for the writing phase of your blog post: write first then edit later! I don’t do this and I probably should! I am forever editing as I go along but then again I edit more than once so…
In future, I will be taking more blogging and other courses in the future, they could help me with future jobs and help me take my blog to the next level.
Judging from this course, the courses on Skillshare are simple and easy to follow. Everything you learn can be easily applied almost immediately (well for the blogging course anyway). I already feel like I’m blogging better! What do you think?
Have you taken any free blogging courses? What was your experience and which ones would you recommend. Share them in the comments.
