I just scheduled my first class, Blog Your Hobby, at Learning Connection in Providence, RI. Here's the description:
Have you been dreaming of sharing your crafty creations, culinary adventures, or fabulous fashion with the world? You need a blog! During this class, you'll use the simple Blogger platform to create and launch a free blog that lets your passion shine. You’ll also learn how to create compelling content and use social media to attract readers. (Register here)I don't know about you but I'm so looking forward to this! I love the philosophy of local peer education. I love that I'll be empowering people to put themselves out into the global community where they'll be able to educate and inspire others by being their authentic selves, just doing what they love. It will be so rad!
My Blog Your Hobby class is designed to enable anyone who knows how to use internet to create a blog. During class we will cover:
- What is a blog?
- Building a blog
- Creating a post
- Creating a page
- Understanding social media
- Using social media
- Integrating social media with your blog
- Connecting readers with your content
We will actually do all this in class so that you can karate chop procrastination and gain confidence in a fun environment with a creative and compassionate instructor.
The class isn't until Saturday, February 1st so please save the date and "join" (or "maybe") this event on Facebook if you're interested. I'll post a registration link (UPDATE: REGISTER HERE) as well as some optional pre-class activities and other info as it gets closer to the date.
For now, tell me:
Do you blog your hobby? What is the most rewarding thing about keeping a blog?
Aspiring bloggers: What is your dream blog about? What benefits do you hope to get out of blogging?
