As a blogger myself since 2010, I've come to learn how to keep everything I do very organized & easily accessible. One of my go-to blog & business tools has been, and will continue to be, Google Drive.
Most bloggers don't realize the functionality of Google Drive and how much it can benefit their blog or business. In this course, you'll get a behind-the-scenes look at how you can use Google Docs, Slides & Sheets for your own blog.
This course is broken down into 4 video lessons:
- Lesson 1 is an Intro to Google Drive. You'll get a quick overview of the platform, learn how to access it easily, and how to organize it with files & folders.
- Lesson 2 dives into Google Docs. I'll show you how to use the editing tools available to help you create gorgeous documents you can then turn into PDFs to share with your blog readers or clients.
- Lesson 3 is all about Google Slides. If you are hosting a webinar or speaking engagement, custom Slides help you appear more professional and provide a visual aid to your listeners.
- Lesson 4 wraps up with the meatiest of them all - Google Sheets. I'm a spreadsheet nerd but understand the fear that spreadsheets and formulas cause in many bloggers. You'll learn how to format Sheets and create your own comprehensive editorial calendar.

Highly Recommend This Google Drive Course
Before taking this course I had no idea that the functionality of Google Drive was so vast, and comparable to MS Office. I had been paying a monthly subscription to MS Office, but I have now cancelled it and will use Google Drive from now on. Th...

Review of Guide to Google Drive
Excellent course! Easy to follow the demos! I only wish I had taken it months before when I actually signed up for it. Now I won't be using the Microsoft products and wishing I could see my file on my iPad! Thanks Kirsten!
Step by step and very well explained.
That`s awesome stuff!
Thank you so much for this little gem, Kirsten. I never used Google Drive, so I was just curious, but WOW, what a mistake I´ve made. In the future I´ll work with it, you´ve shown me so many features for bloggers, it´s amazing.
So Very Helpful
I loved how clearly directions were given, and all the example docs you showed. Thank you!
Brilliant, thank you.
I totally recommend this course because it was focused on the practical application of Google Docs, rather than the theoretical uses, which tend to put me to sleep! I especially recommend the final chapter on Sheets. Thank you for your att...

A friend shared this opportunity with me and I am so glad she did. The old saying, "You can't see the forest for the trees", certainly came to mind while following along in this course. I have use bits and pieces of google docs, but not really ...
