Digital Arts - Random Act of Kindness
Compliment a Stranger’s Portfolio
I found this idea on another site and I really liked the idea behind it... so I am challenging all our friends to do the following sometime this week.
This might be the easiest random act of kindness one designer can bestow on another: Compliment someone’s portfolio.
You know you spend time every day browsing projects on Behance or Dribbble or Instagram or GitHub. Next time you see something you like or admire, leave a comment of appreciation and let them know you like their work.
Take it a step further than a generic like. Explain what about the piece or project appeals to You. Why do you like it? What about it made you stop and offer words of encouragement to the designer? By offering specific feedback you can help them do better work and even serve as an anecdotal recommendation when they need it.

Not sure how many people will see this, but I have used udemy.com for a long time. I probably have more lessons than I could ever hope to watch.

Simply click "show more" in the topic menu on the left (after clicking on "browse free courses") It can't hurt to look at a few and pick some to possibly learn something new.
