How to start a free blog and make it successful (Blogging 101)
In this short course, you'll get the essentials:
– an introduction to blogging software and how to start on your own blog
– who's blogging well and what you can learn from them
– the kinds of things you can write about (that people want to read)
– what a blog can do for your professional profile or business (large or small)
– the inspiration to start a blog (or develop one you've already started)
– different ways of thinking about blogs (it's not just about writing*)
This training course is for
– people who want to make their mark on the world
– people with a project or passion they want to further
– small and large businesses that genuinely want to help other people
Blogging can also help you
– get up in google searches (both your content and your personal brand)
– build credibility in the field you want to succeed in (and value in your name)
– project the professional profile you want
– start your own website for free
– the inspiration to get you started (or use your existing blog more effectively)
– examples of best practice
– the key info you really need
– learning resources to take away
– videos you can review later (which help explain how to do it)
Think you're not a great writer?
Being able to write helps with blogs, but you don't have to be a brilliant writer. Some very successful blogs use photos or videos or audio rather than heaps of words.
