The multiple links to various tools which make the writer's craft more productive were recommended, based on Kate Motaung's experiece. Other links to blogs and published authors who are already successful will be valuable if students of this course want to seek mentors and coaches in the future.
Navigation is really good, like the pointers in much more expensive courses. The % complete is an encouraging measuring stick. The student is able to click forward to the next lesson or indicate that they have finished before moving one. Students of this course will be introduced to social media platforms, how-tos of social media, what it means to be an affiliate, tools for writers, professional bloggers, and so much more.
This course is a goldmine of resources for writers who are eager to see their work online and being read by a wide audience.
The Start-Up Guide doesn’t claim to be a comprehensive writer’s course. Instead, it’s a guided collection of resources along with challenges for both beginner and the more advanced.
For those who are just beginning to transition toward the online writer’s world, this guide is a good place to start. The suggested resources will help a newbie make logical first steps in getting started.
For those with more experience, this course has resource gems worth noting. The challenges are appropriate next steps for writers who have already accomplished the beginner first steps.
Who is this not for?
Writers who don’t want to publish or market online.
Experienced writers who are already keenly aware of all the current technology and associated trends.
Writers who don’t have time to read and do the challenges.
A couple things to keep in mind:
This course is not comprehensive.
Time invested in applying the concepts is key.
One of my favorite resources is the list of ways to connect with other writers. As I connect with other writers, I'm encouraged and learn from them. Rather than being competition, we help each other become the writers God made us to be. We each have a message God has put on our heart to write. As iron sharpens iron, we grow within the context of community.

Kate's online-writing guide was just the push I needed to refocus my efforts.
One thing that I really liked what that it wasn't overwhelming. Sometimes online courses can get rather lengthy and you have to be really organized and dedicated to keep up with it. I was able to go through Kate's course in an afternoon and feel like I accomplished something. I took several notes and made a list of actionable items that I feel like I can manage.
Each section has goals and action items for both the beginner and the advanced writer, which I appreciated. At first, I was worried that the course was going to be too basic for me. It starts with how to set up a web host and blog. Thankfully, it quickly accelerated from there. She goes over the basics like social media but is able to include tips and resources that can take your social media presence to the next level. I have already started implementing one of her suggestions and am eager to see the results.
Kate also offers tons of resources like which podcasts to listen to, websites to bookmark, books to read, websites to submit work to, and online communities to join.
Each of the five units provide a task for both beginners and advanced bloggers to apply the information taught. Some units provide a list or links by which one can further explore a topic. There are videos that I found to be helpful, clearly guiding step by step instruction.
If you have been looking for a way to develop and grow your blog, this is a practical and applicable course. This is a resource to keep handy for reference. I found the information easy to absorb, understand, and did not overwhelm me. Kate Motaung definitely communicated all the information in a way that expressed her love for both the writing process and for people.
