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.
- no lectures added
Have a blog topic in mind, but we would be happy to help you identify one.
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.
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.
