Random Thought About Learning

If one learns a skill using tutorials via YouTube, Pinterest, etc., then is one truly self taught?

Crochet Practice – Please don’t judge, I’m new at this.

People are putting their hard earned time into writing and/or filming tutorials. It seems awfully haughty to act like if one doesn’t use an in person, face to face teacher, then whatever is learned is ultimately self taught. Whether one hires an individual or uses a tutorial, work must be put into the skill by both the learner and the teacher regardless of the forum in which learning and teaching take place. So unless one sits down and hammers out the learning without any outside instruction, then I do not believe it is a case of being self taught.

BTW crochetspot.com and anniescatalog.com are my go-to’s for tutorials right now.

Oh yeah and this makes reason #6 I am boring. Nothing says boring like a 47 year old grandmother learning to crochet. 😀

Thought of the Day (6/19/17)

Believe it or not your experience does not necessarily prove what is or is not true of the entirety of society or the world. You are not the center of the universe. You cannot possible know everything or everyone. Stop making sweeping judgements​ based solely on your individual experience.
