Veterinarian or Ventriloquist?

What’s it going to be?

Either way these people can get you there

  • Udemy
  • Udacity
  • Khan Academy
  • Codeacademy
  • Bloc
  • Iversity
  • Coursera

These sites, and many more just like them, all offer online education programs.

For example, a few years ago I took  a course on writing. My Australian professor and I would get together every day or two and he would teach me about writing.

He was always neat and well dressed. I was often in my jammies. Some days I hadn’t even brushed my teeth.

I thought it was all pretty cool; he’s in Australia and I’m somewhere in Canada, USA or Mexico and working on improving my writing skills. I don’t remember what site I took that course from but I certainly enjoyed the process.

This past summer I got the learning bug again. I’ve taken a real interest in photography lately and have studied many YouTube videos on the subject, then I saw an ad  advertising a photography course taught by National Geographic photographers. The offer was from

Did I mention it was on sale?

So along with an investment of about 10 bucks and about an hour or so a day for probably 20 days I focused on learning about how to enjoy my hobby. I learned a bunch! How could you not learn about photography from a group of National Geographic photographers?

Before I got this blog going again I took a free course on WordPress websites, then blew the budget and invested $15 on another course that had probably 75 different lessons lasting from 5 to 15 minutes each. All this through Udemy .

This time when I tackled my website I understand a bit more about whats going on inside the website and am able to fix the odd thing when it’s not doing what I want it to.  And I downloaded the courses so I have the info on my tablet forever.

So what ever you’ve always dreamt of doing, whether it’s learning about astrology or archaeology,  Udemy or any of the other online course sites has the education for you to make it happen and you can learn all you want from your favorite chair.

So what’s it gonna be? veterinarian or ventriloquist?

  1. Darn you Larry you know my hubby is going to read this and I no longer will have any excuse for not getting my digital photos organized. Oh well, I guess really it was about time to quit procrastinating.
