This will be a journey… A journey to read through technology books, starting with Excel 2016 Bible. Exciting, right? I guess that depends on who you ask! I love learning technology but have HORRIBLE motivation to continue once I start. Anyone else out there thinking, “Yep, that’s me!”? I want to blog about my journey to help hold me accountable, to hopefully inspire others, and at the end of the day, to achieve a new skill. Basically, I think we can all call this a win-win situation.
The goal behind this blog is to read one chapter from the same technology book per week until I complete the book. Throughout the week, I will have several different topics I will blog about (see list below) along with a YouTube tutorial video based off the material read. I may find that I can be my perfectionist self and do all the topics listed or I may pick only a couple. Remember, I am human and will definitely need my grace moments! Get pumped because here are the topics!
- Personal Journey – These posts will be about the personal journey of reading what is essentially a textbook. These posts will not be technical but just personal. So if the idea of learning excel makes you sick, these are the posts for you! These are my “grit and grace” posts.
- Technical Journey – These posts will center around what exciting topics I am reading about this week. Believe me, I will be pretty excited so forgive the enthusiasm if this is not your cup of tea! I will also be including a summary/preview of my YouTube tutorial video for the week. This is another way to make sure that I am not just reading BUT am actually learning. Raise your hand if you know what I mean! I want to keep myself accountable for learning the skill.
- Did You Know? – These posts will be a quick technology-related item that maybe you knew or maybe you didn’t. Example, did you know there is a formula in Excel called EOMONTH? If you did, gold star to you! If not, guess what? I didn’t know it either until a few days ago. EOMONTH returns the last day of the month provided in the formula. May not seem that novel but can be pretty powerful. These are the items I will discuss in this section. I will also give examples and ideas of how to use the information.
- Technically Puzzles! – Want to test your technology wit? These will be your posts: technology puzzles! I know, pretty fun, am I right? All other geeky gals out there, raise your hands!
- Inspiration Corner – These posts will be all about real people who inspire me. I want to share other people’s journeys, especially in the technology world. I cannot wait to see where these posts go because I would not be starting this journey without some other amazing people inspiring me along the way.
So in a nutshell, this is Technically Denise!
