So far, all of my Blender training has been through video. I've done 5
courses sold through CartoonSmart:
*Blender Basic I* - intro to Blender's UI and modeling
*Blender Basics II* - modeling tools, materials, textures, very basic
*Blender Basics III* - simple rigging and animation
*Materials and Textures*
*Logic Bricks*

I've also done 34 episodes of *Bits of Blender *with my boy, they are freely
available on YouTube. I've many more planned, but work has been crazy busy
for the last month, so we've been on hiatus. In fact I had to cancel my trip
to the Blender conference because of workload and some deadlines our team is
working against this October. By the time things ease up, we'll be getting
into the holidays (Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year). So I'm not sure what
I'll be able to do in that time.

I have writing experience (on Lingo) and I have a book idea for Blender but
I doubt I can fit it in anytime soon as book development takes a much larger
time commitment.
