My apprenticeship at Hubpages has finally come to an end. While I’m sad that it’s over to a certain extent, I’m more relieved that I actually made it through and graduated!
Publishing eight hubs a month, and writing for three other websites and a blog is extremely difficult. I, frankly, don’t know how I did it, but I’m glad I did. I know have access to all the lessons from the past six months, so I can actually go back through at my own pace.
I did learn quite a bit, however. Mostly about how to title a hub and what the formula is for a great hub layout. I’ve also developed quite a little niche. Most of my AP hubs were on eye diseases and disorders (and other medical topics) so I have a nice little portfolio of 105 hubs.
Now I Can Catch Up On…
About a bazillion things that I have been neglecting including:
- Craft projects
I’m sure I forgot a few things. I really have so much to catch up on; I have three other blogs that I’ve completely ignored for the past few months, piles of magazines and ophthalmic journals that I haven’t read, and Sam’s way behind in her homeschooling.
Let’s not forget about the family finances!
Yup, way behind on all the bills too, but I’m not entirely sure that has anything to do with the apprenticeship! But maybe I’ll just blame it on that anyway…
On a Lighter Note
Greg was recently watching YouTube on the Xbox and he found a story about colleges putting their classes online… FOR FREE. I’m not kidding. Colleges like Duke University and Ohio State are putting classes like “Medical Neuroscience” and “Genes and the Human Condition” on a website called Coursera, FOR FREE!!! You don’t get actual college credits, however.
I was checking out this site this am, and I was like a kid in a candy shop! Greg was laughing at me because I was giggling about neuroscience and biochemistry like a schoolgirl! I signed up for 14 classes already. I even found a couple of writing classes!! I highly recommend the site. It’s free, you get access to all the video lectures and quizzes, etc. Talk about some AWESOMESAUCE! I’ll never get caught up on anything with this site!!
I know I promised a post on the importance of organizing and goal setting, no you didn’t miss it. That post will be up tomorrow, I promise!
