Are you ready to blog?

On the 8th and 15th of November, I will be running an introductory blogging class. It’s specifically aimed at writers and artists not yet comfortable with participating in the blogging community.

We will cover basic technical skills as well as strategy to build your online presence. The class will be limited to 8 people so there should be time to address all your blogging questions.

Online journal, photo diary or opinion column? A blog can be almost anything you want it to be! Blogging is also a great way to network and showcase your skills.

In this short course, you will be introduced to free blogging platforms and start your own blog on the easy-to-use WordPress.

Topics covered:

  • Learn how to post text and upload images
  • Explore the templates
  • Have fun with widgets
  • Analyse the stats
  • Ideas on how to entice and engage your audience
  • Learn how to connect your blog to the blogging community
  • Tips on improving your Google ranking

Students will need basic computer and Internet knowledge.

Join in and discover how to build your presence on the www!
