    Blogging 101 Class

    There are millions of bloggers out there and even more blogs. Don’t be just another unread blogger! Find your niche, create your community, and blog to the masses.

    If you want to write an interesting blog that people want to read and keep coming back for more, Blogging 101 can help you.

    This six-week** comprehensive course will guide you through all the basics of creating and establishing your new blog or breathing new life into your already started blog. The units covered in the Blogging 101 curriculum include:

    • Introduction to Blogging (all the basics for the beginning blogger
    • Laying Your Cards On The Table (blog titles, platforms, and start-up instructions)
    • It’s All About Me (blogging safety, “About Me” pages, and blog design)
    • Build That Content and Make It Snazzy (writing quality posts, commenting, and adding media)
    • It’s The Little Things That Count (sidebars, widgets, categories, and static pages)
    • Mi Blog es Su Blog – - Building Community (growing a readership, blog promotion, and blogrolls)
    • Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained (more blog promotion strategies and monetizing your blog)
    • Looking Back and Looking Forward (tips and strategies for continuing to grow your blog after the course)

    When you have completed the Blogging 101 course, you will have not only learned the basics of blogging, but you will have your VERY OWN BLOG, several quality posts, and very possibly a growing following of readers! Our course goes in-depth into the specifics of blogging – - everything from beginning html, to how to tie your new blog to your Twitter or Facebook account, to registering your blog with directories.

    If you follow through with each of the course assignments, you will start out WAY ahead of the average blogger who tries to start a blog on their own. It is highly likely that you will already have begun to build traffic for your blog before you have even completed the course! Why struggle and learn every blogging lesson the hard way when you can simply register for Blogging 101 and begin the process as a knowledgeable and competent blog author?

    Sign up today to get started on the blog you have dreamed about!!

    **Although you have complete access to your course for 6 full weeks trough our group, you may choose to complete the course in a shorter time frame if you wish by contacting me directly (your host).

    Zero budget - I created a blog. Not bad for a newbie & I'm learning and making it better daily. Happy to answer questions for free if you'll simply "like" & "share" my site with others.

    I really hope this doesn't come across rude because I am a bit confused. This class is $300 for just 6 hours of instruction? It is $50 per hour PER person? That seems drastically overpriced. An entire 4-day conference is cheaper with tons more instruction (RWA 4 days--$450 or Southern Cal Writers-San Diego also 4 days--$425). There is a similar class in town in March that is only $49 for all 4 hours. Do I have this wrong? I hope so. Does someone understand this differently? I would really like to attend, but not $300 for 6 hours. I thought it was $60 for the entire course which would put it in line with the $49/4-hour price range.

      The $49/4-hours price is based on a class similar in topic that takes place in March by another local writer.

    Based on some of the comments listed from the attending members, has this group already started? Is Jan 20th the first class or one in the middle? I would like to sign-up but I need to know if I will be able to attend all the classes, which is why I was wondering the schedule for the entire three months. Is this a weekly class that meets on Sundays for three months? You can tell I am a bit confused. Please help!

    Are all of these classes on Sunday, 2-3pm? at this same location?
