Time for a
TOP 5 LIST!!
I’m backtracking (due to having to meet a work deadline yesterday) to the UBC Day 7 writing prompt to create a resource list. AND I’m borrowing this one from a post I published in February on my other blog! 😉
Time for another TOP 5 list of items! I want to offer what I consider my favorite Top 5 business and education sites. These relate to freelance topics, such as writing, blogging, and working from home, as well as improving skills and knowledge in various areas.
My Favorite Top 5 Business and Education Sites
I’m not putting these in any particular order of importance – just alphabetical! 😉
1- Alison FREE Online Courses – Want to gain some more knowledge about a topic of interest or earn a certificate in some area of business? Then what could be better than a FREE online course to accomplish your goals? You’re sure to find a course that could benefit you from among categories such as business and enterprise skills, digital literacy and IT skills, financial and economic literacy, health literacy, personal development and soft skills, and much more!
2- BlogHer – Designed especially for women bloggers (sorry, guys!), this site “creates opportunities for more than 92 million women who blog and their readers to gain exposure, education, community, and economic empowerment.” BlogHer has also become a member of the She Knows Media family. BlogHer is also the sponsor for NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) each November in conjunction with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), with prompts to inspire bloggers to blog consistently throughout the month.
3- Michelle Shaeffer’s Girl Next Door Blog – Definitely one of the top blogging gurus, at least in my opinion, as one of my earliest blogging mentors. She was also one of the founders of the Ultimate Blog Challenge! Michelle is dedicated to helping you improve your blogging, home or small business, right along with building your self-esteem and self-sufficiency. I just published a feature post about Michelle two days ago –> HERE <– . 🙂
4- OWL at Purdue – No, this is not about owls and poultry! But if you’re someone who wants to improve your writing skills, you will want to bookmark the Online Writing Lab (OWL) hosted by Purdue University. This site is a treasure chest of exercises, information, and resources. You won’t be disappointed!
5- Power Affiliate Club (PAC) – The PAC is one solution to obtaining engagement, comments, traffic, and many more benefits for your blog and your confidence as a blogger. Lesly Federici, the mastermind behind PAC, offers both free memberships and paid memberships for PAC, both of which provide you with valuable benefits! Check out my detailed blog post about PAC here.
**BONUS** Related to PAC, here’s another resource, integral to PAC’s success: Lesly Federici as the Robin Hood Mentor, who I also featured in a post on April 2. If you need guidance, motivation, and encouragement in your blogging and entrepreneurial efforts–and could stand to lose 20 lbs. of thinking weight–check out Lesly’s Robin Hood Mentoring program.
I hope you will check out these sites and then bookmark, follow, and regularly visit the ones that are most helpful to you! 🙂
