Today marks exactly one month of JuicyLessons. Our first JuicyLesson was written on September 9th and was very short, as was the next one. I had initially planned to keep the lessons short but it hasn’t turned out that way. My goal was and remains to produce a JuicyLesson each and every day (except Sundays) for an entire year.
I am enjoying producing these lessons. It gives me a chance both to learn and to teach. Most of each lesson is a download of my stored knowledge but I have had to research some details which is where the learning comes in. I have also been reading newspapers more than I usually do in order to get ideas for my posts.
I have been writing a rough draft of each JuicyLesson the day before it is posted. I revise and complete the editing process for each piece just prior to posting it and rarely do I not make mistakes which require correction the first time each lesson is posted. So after deleting the JuicyLesson from my FB page, I make the necessary changes to the document and post it again. This process is repeated for as long as it takes to get it right…usually three times, but sometimes more.
I plan to make AJuicyLessonperday into a blog. Due to technical issues, I have not been able to produce the blog just yet but rest assured that it is in the development stage and I hope to have it up and running by the end of this month. My plan is to post a daily link to each JuicyLessonperday on my FB page so continue to watch this space for further information.
Today just a few thoughts…
