Last week I shared about iBlog: Everything You Need to Know About Blogging from 30 Top Bloggers. Today, I have the pleasure of giving away this fabulous resource to three blessed winners!
“I honestly don’t know how you do it. Homeschool, write, maintain sites…” Back in 2008, I started blogging for fun. Mostly to share photos of the children with far-flung family, to document our homeschool and for a writing outlet. Like my friend, Maureen, I’d been a scrapbooker, a photographer. My parents gave me a camera when I was 15, I was a yearbook photographer in high school and college then a wedding photographer for a short time right out of college. Being a graduate of journalism school, blogging was a natural extension, a creative outlet for skills.
Well, then about three years ago we started sharing our art times with Nana in tutorial form with you readers. At the same time there were things I needed to learn about WordPress, social media. Later I learned about how to put together an ebook because, you dear reader, asked for it. This blogging venture changed to a hodgepodge of a ministry.
