  • Essay Blogging:  Chicago Design Exhibit at the Chicago Cultural Center | September 7

    With special guest, Heather Kendall of the Chicago Museum Blog.

    Goal: To prepare a thoughtful blog post both that explains the subject rather than describes your opinion.

    About the Chicago Summer Field Blogging Workshop:

    Head out with us to explore Chicago while learning some great tactics to better blogging. Our Summer Field Blogging Series is open to bloggers at all levels and is a great way to ask questions and network with other area bloggers. Purchase a season pass and save!

    We recommend you have a WordPress Blog ready for each session (Either or a self-hosted version).  If you already have an established blog, you’re welcome to incorporate our topic ideas into your existing blog or you might want to create a free blog on to just use for the series.   At the end of the summer, we will hold a group sharing session to showcase our summer blogs and to again spark some great ideas.  (Details to come later in the summer on this).

    Recommended Items to bring:

    - A Reporter’s Notebook
    - A Smartphone (For a microphone/camera phone)
    - A Camera (if not using smartphone)
    - A pen.
    - A little spending cash 

    I have tried to schedule all events within the city where public transportation is available and that had either no cost or low cost to enter.  If there’s expected costs, I will try to communicate that before we go.  All classes are on a first-come, first serve basis – Season Pass holders have guaranteed entry.

    Hi. I'm guessing since it's almost September that the season pass thing is no longer offered. Either way I'm interested in the 9/7 event.

      Hi Elizabeth. Yes, we're still going to the event but not going to have as much of a lesson. Please join us.
