What you'll learn in this blog training:

Have you always wanted to start a blog, or do you have one that needs some direction? This workshop 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 best practices for how to create, maintain, and promote a blog, with practical tips learned from the instructor’s 15 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.

You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam as well as a strong internet connection.
