This week was a big week for me! I put my first course out to beta students and received some amazing constructive criticism and feedback. I’ve spent all week putting their advice into action and revamping a few areas. I want it to be the best I can offer when it goes live, hopefully very soon.
I was on the fence for a long time about creating courses here on the blog. I wanted to but everywhere I looked courses were selling for $600 or $1,000. I just couldn’t bring myself to create a course then turn around and sell it to y’all for $1,000! I wouldn’t pay $1,000 for a course so there’s no way I’d ever ask you to do that.
What I was hearing from a lot of people about those $600 or $1,000 courses was, “It was great! I mean, I knew a lot of it but some modules were really good.” That’s when my light bulb went off and I decided to get to work on micro-courses. They are far more affordable and specific to one skill or system, so that’s been consuming all of my free time lately. I’m excited to get them up as additional resources for anyone interested.
Other than that, I’ve been checking out new places around Charleston and working on getting my final plants in their pots for late summer. I’m hoping to get cucumber and lettuce in this weekend. Since my time has been split between the computer and the garden, I decided to focus on gardening links this weekend. I need a break from tech stuff.
1 // I wish I’d had these small space gardening hacks from The Kitchn when we lived in Atlanta. So genius!
2 // I saw Aerogarden featured on Skunkboy and just about lost my mind. That is awesome and I must have one.
3 // DIY Home Sweet Home shared tips to attract toads to your garden. Since I’m scared of frogs / toads (I know, but it’s true) I bookmarked this post so I know exactly what not to do.
4 // I spotted this “Grow a Tomato Sauce Garden” gift basket tutorial on Satori Design for Living and thought it was the cutest thing ever. I know a lot of people that would love a gift like this.
5 // Creekline House shared great uses for baking soda in the garden. She shares some very clever tips and I’ve already added a little baking soda to my tomato plant. 🙂
6 // Quarto Knows gave a how-to for a rolling planter container garden which is exactly what I need for the plants I need to bring inside at night. This is going to be a DIY of mine very soon.
