In an earlier post, I shared that I am going to conduct scholarship search workshops. After contacting a few organizations that specialize in college resources and workshops, I was advised to conduct workshops on writing essays for scholarships. That sounded good until I started reading a few scholarship books and realized how much learning I had to do.
In order to share accurate information and resources, scholarship workshops will not begin in September UNLESS you have the knowledge and resources to educate young people. If you do, let’s chat so we can get that going. Otherwise, I will let you know when I’ll start the workshops.
In the meantime, if you know of any scholarship search resources or train-the-trainer workshops, please let me know.
My book, 62 Posts to Overcome Blogger’s Block, will be published next month, but you can buy the book and get the workbook free ($39 value) through September 15, 2012.
Content and consistency are two of the main keys of blogging success. And you get both in my book.
I included 62 types of blog posts with visual samples, which will give you over a year’s worth of content on your site if you create a blog post at least once a week. Creating a blog post once a week will help you develop a consistent schedule and move your blog to the front page of Yahoo, Bing and Google.
If writing is not your strength; no fret. Tell your story using audio, video and photos. There are six other multimedia formats in the book you can use that will make your site and content more engaging and interactive.
Did I mention that there are 65 other bloggers featured in the book that have over 10 million global followers? What does this mean for you? You are getting advice from bloggers with years of experience, some going as far back to the beginning of blogging. You get to see how these experts in various disciplines – writing, marketing, business, technology, and blogging – create content on their sites.

….If teachers don’t strike
Unless a strike is called, be sure to your child is at school on Tuesday, September 4, 2012. There are no good reasons for children not to be there. They have had nearly three months to play, chill and do whatever, and it’s time to focus on education.
Call your child’s school to confirm the start and end times as many schools are extending the school day. If your child school is on a Track E schedule, they are already late, so make sure they are there on September 4th.
Take the time to meet the teacher and principal. We need to be partners in educating on our children.
Remember, the first day sets the tone for the rest of the year.
I’m looking for organizations that conduct scholarship workshops so I can start helping in the community. If the organization is not in Chicago, please send me the name and contact information, and I’ll reach out.
Thanks so much.
