This has been a year worth reckoning with in so many ways, never could I have imagined months and months of quarantine and a virus that threatened to kill loved ones. About a year ago, I purchased the Genius Bloggers Toolkit, I took a chance and started going through the materials. I was so impressed at the vast array of resources. It was a wayward blogger’s dream come true. At that time I had also just finished my first attempt at a digital course and was super excited to do more. Fast-forward a year, a very trying year, my blog is growing in leaps and bounds, I now have a membership with over 10 courses and my lofty goal to be included in GBTK this year came true!
