One of the 5 Skillshare courses I took for this months to-do list was Pinterest for Small Business by Lisa Rusczyk.
I keep going back to Pinterest, but still have not gotten my teeth into yet, so a course was required to try and get up to speed. The course was pretty good. I do not believe it was planned, but she ended up showing some examples of what not to do on Pinterest and explained why. Its helpful all the same. Shes good over the mic and her explanations are clear.
The project for the course was to create and link to a pin, that was tall, had a picture and some text. Not quite what she had in mind, but I reworked the old Blue Moon Theatre poster, and pinned that.
I would recommend Lisa Rusczyk’s Skillshare Course.

I made decent progress with my online goals in August but got feck all of my real life goals done. I somehow felt more accountable to my online goals after posting them. So this month I will post my online and real life goals for all to see.

Take & Finish 5 Skillshare courses
I doubt I can finish the entire list in one month, but stuff it. Aim high. Get that middle part of the list rolling. Everything else can follow.
I am a great believer that some people, sites, blogs and brands are better suited to a select few social media’s instead of all of them.
Personally I am chatty so Twitter suits me. I am also about the visual so Ello and Instagram suit me.
I have little to nothing to offer on Pinterest, G+ or Facebook. That said despite me never visiting G+ and rarely browsing Pinterest I still get clicks from both to my blog.
This has encouraged me to put up my social links and frequent the big 5 on a more personal basis and see if anything grows on any of the platforms.
