The editorial folks at WordPress.com have done a lot of work making Blogging University courses, teaching folks how to make the most of their shiny new WordPress blogs. They’re really helpful and include a commons area to interact with the other folks taking the course and help from staff members like me. And they’re free!
I’ll be volunteering in a Blogging 101 course this July:
Blogging 101 is three weeks of bite-size blogging assignments that take you from “Blog?” to “Blog!” Every weekday, you’ll get a new assignment to help you publish a post, customize your blog, or engage with the community.
You’ll walk away with a stronger focus for your blog, several published posts and a handful of drafts, a theme that reflects your personality, a small (but growing!) audience, a grasp of blogging etiquette — and a bunch of new friends.
Learn more about the courses going on in July (we have a 201 writing course, too!) and how to register here:
