My first two entries for Learnuary 2020! I found something called Learnuary by the Etherington Brothers. I loved the idea, so I'm adopting it this year and hopefully for coming years. One of my favorite things about the challenge is that you aren't "failing" the challenge if you don't do it every single day or meet some kind of word count or image count. You win if you even do it once for the month! Here's the original Learnuary challenge from the Etherington brothers. There's still plenty of time to participate!! You're not too late. Share something you know, or repost one of your favorite free learning resources with the #learnuary tag!
