Writing in the Digital Age

A month or two ago I invited you to take part in Tammy Strobel’s photography course “Everyday Magic.” It was well received and quite a few of you signed up and learned a lot from it. Tammy contacted me the other day wondering if the Tiny House Blog readers would be interested in her writing course entitled “Writing in the Digital Age?” I decided the answer was yes. In fact I am signing up to take the course myself. Here is a little more about it from Tammy and then you can decide if this something you would enjoy taking.

Tammy Strobel

In this four-week, self-guided course, I will teach you how to tell your story in the digital age, how to feed your creative juices, how to make time to write, and much more. I’ll share insights, inspiration, and the lessons I’ve learned over the last five years as a writer, blogger and photographer. In addition, you’ll hear from a variety of guest experts too!

During this course you’ll receive:

  • In-depth writing lessons that will empower you to write on your blog, in your journal, or wherever your heart desires.
  • Access to a private blog, writing resources, and lesson archives.
  • Writing prompts.
  • The option to join a private Facebook group.
  • At the end of the class, you’ll receive a PDF document that includes the course materials.

Tammy Strobel and Everyday Magic

My passion for tiny houses is followed by another passion, photography. I often blend the two and the Tiny House Blog allows me to use both passions in a unique way.

My good friend and fellow tiny house enthusiast Tammy Strobel of Rowdy Kitten’s fame is also a photographer and a writer. She has brought these two talents together into a photography course called Everyday Magic. About a year ago I had the privilege of taking her course and I really enjoyed it. Now days I shoot most of my photography via a smartphone and post my photos on Instagram and you can view my photos here http://instagram.com/kentgriswold

I really enjoyed this course and if you have an interest in improving your photography and learning some new ideas I’d like to invite you to check this course out.

Everyday Magic

Tammy says:

Everyday Magic” will spark your creative juices and help you get in touch with the joy of taking photos. Throughout the course, I will give you tips and tools to improve your photography practice. However, this is not a highly technical ecourse. You will learn how to take better photos and have fun along the way!

Rowdy Kittens and Smalltopia Interview

Kacie Erickson did a recent interview with Tammy and Logan of Rowdy Kittens and Smalltopia that she’s allowed me to share with you. Here is what Kacie had to say:

“I thought I’d share with you the interview I just had with Logan & Tammy, it was so fun getting to pick their brains…they BOTH have such a way of inspiring with words.”

Kacie though that it might inspire some of you too! Click Here to read her interview.

Tiny House Powermover

Holly recently contacted me and had a question about moving a tiny mobile house once you had it near it’s final location. She had seen an article somewhere and was looking for it. I knew right off she was talking about the Powermover that Dee Williams and Logan Smith have used to move homes in the Portland area.

I wrote to Logan and he filled me in on what they use. Logan says: I believe the tool name is an “electric dolly” but the commercial name of the tool we purchased was “Powermover” from a fellow named Brady outside of Los Angeles, CA. The website for the Powermover is http://www.powermoverinc.net/ Continue reading
