I found a cool site that is not only +Project:IDWIL friendly, it is just dang cool and fun. +Udemy is a site I've known about for awhile, but am finally just taking advantage of. In the end, whether my use of Udemy ("you-to-me") to find online courses/workshops to support the stuff I need for work or if it is something I am just slightly interested in, it is just great that I can grow a little. The current course I am taking is on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) - one of those things I kind of knew about and thought, "yeah, I should understand that better sometime." But, halfway through, I am astonished at how the information is great for inspiring me in other ways.
For example, as I develop Project:IDWIL, I am always refining how to describe what it is.
So how has a course on SEO helped?
Some of the basics of SEO is understanding how to use keyword searches in order to optimize your website. As I did this as an exercise, I was elated to see how easy it was to type out phrases of the things people that IDWIL can help are looking for - incredibly helpful as I formulate my 'why' and try to best filter down my ideal audience from the much too lofty market of 'everyone.'
Additionally, I have been taking some classes at Skillshare.com on blogging to create a community and visual storytelling using Final Cut Pro X, both of which have been extremely positive experiences for me.
You just never know what will spark inspiration - for me, this is true of learning; for a future beneficiary of IDWIL, it will be true of finding the perfect career for him/her!
