Just before the holidays I had the opportunity to visit Sunset Magazine and take part in a fun evening of crafting with my fellow blogging friends. The evening was hosted by Curious, a local Bay Area company I’ve been interested in for a while.
I’ve never made jewelry before and panicked a little when I saw what we were going to be making. With the help of the O’Neil Sisters, we all left with a gorgeous necklace and earrings. In just about an hour. Never did I think that was possible.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve turned to online videos to find a quick solution for how to do something. Usually, it’s when we need to fix a toilet in the middle of the night. In that case, I really don’t want to watch an additional 30 seconds of advertising, I just want to get to the nitty gritty.
Curious offers video lessons and courses ranging in 15 minutes to several hours without advertising. You can watch them anywhere, anytime, on your computer, iPad, or mobile device. There are more than 10,000 videos ranging from cake decorating to learning how to code.
I’ve been poking around Curious for about a month now. There are so many really cool videos to watch and learn from. They give you a preview to see if it’s something you might be interested in. If you’re interested, it’s easy to start learning immediately. Most classes range from $9 to $99. My New Year resolution was to learn how to use my camera. I recently signed up for a photography course. It’s a 13-part course for $34.99. I can start and stop anytime, go at my own pace, and ask questions whenever I need to. Something many other online tutorials lack.
So, are you curious about Curious now? They’re giving Growing Up Goofy readers a $25 credit to start. All you have to do is sign up using my special link and you’ll be on your way.
I would love to know what you’re interested in. Let me know what course you’d take, or how a course you chose is going.
