Blogging 101 Workshop

I’ve been putting on workshops, mainly introductory workshops, for groups of people and the feedback I have been getting is “WE WANT MORE”… Many people immediately start asking how to start blogging and are very curious about how to use a blog as their website and so I am offering a workshop next week to answer all of those questions.

Bring your laptop, content (logo, pictures, text, description of your product/service, etc.) and by the end of it you’ll be well on your way.

There will be a number of people attending who plan on bringing in the content that they intended for their websites but instead, using a blog as their website.  Please visit my client’s blog (website) as an example: http://nownzen1.wordpress.com

Contact me if you have any questions.  388-1800 or email.

Blogging 101 – A blog is a Web site that functions as a journal, or a place to post your thoughts and opinions pertaining to a particular subject matter. Many clients use it as a content management system because in addition to text entries, a blog may contain pictures, video, and/or audio clips. This workshop will explain the difference between various kinds of blogs, introduce you to some hosting solutions, and show you how to setup your own blog using WordPress.

What you will learn:

  • How to set up a blog
  • Ways to promote a blog
  • How to use pictures, videos, and text in blogs
  • How to network to drive traffic to your blog
  • Examples of other successful bloggers
