What you'll learn in this communications course:

Have you always wanted to start a blog, or do you have one that needs some direction? This class will provide you with a toolkit to create, maintain, promote, and drive traffic to your blog.

You will get tips for which blogging platforms and content management systems to use, what kind of layout and content works best for online audiences, how to promote your blog effectively both online and off, and how to drive high-quality traffic to your blog.

Attendees will learn how to create, maintain, and promote a blog, with practical tips learned from the instructor’s 11 years of blogging experience.

The class is for those without a current blog or with a basic one that could use a boost. Some knowledge of blogging and the tools used for it will be helpful, but not necessary.
