The month of knowledge and experience

When I was brainstorming blog themes for the first few months of 2012, they all came to me quickly. I saw (and still see) that as a sign, and I’ve been looking forward to this month’s theme: knowledge and experience.

I think we all could learn from each other, so in addition to how-tos from me this month, I’ve lined up a couple of guest posts, too, from friends with things to share. I hope you’re as excited by that as I am; it’s going to be a good month around here. And if there’s a burning question inside you, let me know – I’d love to answer whatever questions you might have!

I’d also love it if you’d share what you know; if you’ve got a tutorial already posted, send me a link. I’d love put them all together in a post and help you promote it.

What are you working on this month?

  1. I think I’m going to enjoy your theme this month! I had people asking me for some of my jewelry tutorials and since all I had were old PDF’s of things I’d taught, I tried my hand at a video and it’s hilarious. I’m so techno challenged that it’s not even funny, and the video came out pretty bad. After I watched it the first time the focus got all screwed up too, but I still put it up on YouTube just so I’d know how to do that. Until I re-do it and get a bunch of good ones ready to go – they’re not going on the blog!! 🙂

    • The first time I tried doing a screencast video, it was reallllly awful. Now, I’ve got the hang of it, but it still takes me a few takes to warm up! So, don’t feel bad, Michelle – I totally know exactly what you’re talking about!

  2. I’ve spent most of my working life as teacher and trainer so empowering others with knowledge kind of come naturally. Last year I had a quest to do some screencasts and I only managed two and they are basically on the same topic – They take such a long time to put together. I think my next screencast will be on how to do a screencast so I have a reminder!

    • I had the quest to learn screencasts, too, last year, and you’re right, they do take a while! As I’ve been doing them for my Elements eclass, it can easily take me up to an hour or two for a 10 minute video – another reason why I’m steadily, but slowly, progressing!!
