New Resource Library Available!

Why I Created A Resource Library

This week I am doing Jeff Goins’ Blog Like a Pro: 7-Day Challenge. On Day 1 I posted “Building a Life – A Manifesto” — you can read it here, but a much prettier version is available in the Resource Library. After that assignment, I was wondering what Jeff would have us writing about next. Little did I know that we would be doing more than writing!

The Resource Library is the result of the Day 2 assignment, which was supposed to be completed in one day. It has taken me almost four days and many, many hours to put together. Seriously, this second assignment almost did me in! Considering the need to use graphic design-type stuff and technical website stuff (yes, that’s my technical word – “stuff”) to create an item of value to subscribers, plus my ridiculously slightly perfectionist nature… well, that’s a recipe for slowing my progress to a crawl.

I like things that are pretty or visually-striking, well-designed things. I know what I like to look at and after a lot of effort I can usually make something that I like for myself. But to create something that works for other people? Yikes! I’m still learning that, and I know I still have “miles to go.”

Creating a Resource Library is something I’ve wanted to do for a couple of months now, but I’ve felt intimidated by the process. This challenge assignment was exactly what I needed to finally do it! Initially, the assignment was to create one item that new subscribers would enjoy. But I had so many ideas in my head that I couldn’t settle on just one.

So I decided to include all of the ideas, and the result is the beginning stages of a Resource Library.

 

What The Resource Library Is And How To Use It

This is a collection of items I’ve created which you can download and make use of in your personal life. Right now there is a PDF copy of “Building a Life – A Manifesto” along with some PDF printables and some JPG quote graphics.

Over time, the collection will grow as I add more designs, checklists, informational items, etc. I’m really excited about this new feature and I hope you will check it out and make use of it!

To get access to the exclusive Filling the Jars Resource Library, subscribe to the Filling the Jars email list below.

Once you’re in, you will see a page with galleries of thumbnails of the items you can save and/or print – similar to THIS:

The sections are separated into PDF and JPG files. For the PDF files, simply click on a thumbnail to open the actual document in a new PDF viewer window. From there you can print or download the item. For the JPG files, clicking on the thumbnail will also open it in a new window. Right-click on the open image to save or print it. I recommend saving it and then printing from your photo software.

I love printing quotes and other items to use for decorating, getting inspired, and goal-setting. Pretty much my whole house is decorated with printables in cheap frames, and I use printable lists and digital downloads almost every day. Comment below or send me an email to let me know what you would like to see included.


Wow, I just realized I’m doing the “Always learn new things” and “Do the scary things” parts of my manifesto this week. Confession – I’m exhausted, but so very pumped to have created something that others can enjoy and find useful!

Now it’s on to the Day 3 assignment. But first, sleep…

Always remember:

Educate yourself, and take action.

Build Your Best Life.”

  1. Wow that sounds like a lot of work! I’ve been wanting to add an email list and develop a free goodie for my readers, but I have no idea how to do so.

    XOXO

    1. Setting up the email list stuff is not that hard, just do it step by step. If you have your site on wordpress, then go to the challenge I linked and watch the video for day 2 to see one way to do it.
      I can only imagine how awesome your free goodie would be!
