Blogging 101

We will be taking a brief look at the world of blogging. In this course we will go over everything from selecting a topic and sticking with it, to building an editorial calendar, and also hear from someone who has made blogging their day job.

Lectures
    no lectures added
Prerequisites

Have a blog topic in mind, but we would be happy to help you identify one.

Syllabus

Session 1- Choosing a topic, creating an editorial calendar, and finding a community.

Session 2 - Selecting the domain/host provider and blogging content management system (CMS) that best suits you

Session 3 - Tips from a bad ass blogger, The Realistic Nutritionist. I built my wife's site and got her started, but she has excelled beyond even my own work. With a ridiculous amount of followers, Facebook fans and site views, she can provide some insight on how to make your blog count.

Session 4 - How to market your blog, and not be a spamming D-bag.

As per last time I will use Live Stream so they will be recorded, and the sessions will last around 30 minutes. Half presentation/lecture and half open for questions.

Additional information

I'm going to need a week or so to identify the start day, so if you have suggestions or preferences let me know. Likely to be in the evenings on weekdays.

You can find me on Twitter @thejournalizer and The Realistic Nutritionist @realnutritioncg for questions or added info.

Teacher qualifications

Bachelors Degree in Journalism and a Masters Degree in Communications.

Managed a team of 60 or so writers.

I am currently in a marketing role for a large business developing awkward amounts of content for them and editing even more of it.

My published masters' thesis "Identifying online communities as self-sustaining ecosystems for fulfilling members’ needs" discusses online communities, managing, and building them.

I have also been quoted in a few Mashable articles, am a writer for social media today, and frequently highlight the latest changes in the digital world on Play This Magazine.

The Realistic Nutritionist is an aspiring (planning to get a degree in nutrition) nutritionist who used her journalism skills from college, and a in interest of food into a profession. She currently writes for SheKnows.com, and her own blog.

"Hey all, I've built out a very simple blog site where you can ask questions about blogging, creating one, or if you would like authoring one on there a well. You can find it here - http://bloggingallthethings.com/ Also if you want to blog on there, we are going with the following themes: BBQ, beer (craft, growing), green, food. Open to others though."
