Have you heard of lynda.com?  I hadn’t heard of this incredible site until I most recently participated in a campaign.  I couldn’t believe how much information was available at my fingertips at lynda.com!  You are probably asking what lynda.com is right about now, and I’m here to introduce you to this site filled with tons of informative videos and tutorials.

Lynda.com is an online subscription library that teaches the latest software tools and skills through high-quality instructional videos taught by recognized industry experts.  With over 1,300 online courses, lynda.com is the place to find unbiased, clear, and comprehensive training in 3D + animation, audio, video, photography, graphic design, web and interactive design, business, and web/mobile/app development from expert instructors.  These are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Sweet, right?!!

This site is pretty much handy for everyone – whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, the designated family photographer, or a busy professional.  There is something for everyone to learn on lynda.com!  For example, have you always wanted to learn about lighting techniques to perfect your photography skills?  Okay, maybe you’re really wanting to learn those much needed iPad and iPhone tips and tricks, or maybe even Facebook and Twitter basics?  Perhaps you want to improve your WordPress skills and take your website or blog to the next level?  This is where lynda.com can help!

As a single mom, part-time employee, and blogger, I need all the help I can get!  With my busy life and limited time to learn, lynda.com is perfect for helping me to further my personal and professional goals.  Would you like to further your personal and professional goals?  If so, then be sure to take advantage and enter to win a one-year membership to lynda.com (a value of $357.00)!!!
