WPNYC WordPress.com Night: Happiness Bar and How to Become a Paid Guest Blogger
Join us for an informal Happiness Bar night. Come with your questions on how to add content to your website, how to publish posts and more. Learn and share WordPress techniques and best practices with others. All experience levels welcome.
We will have a short presentation on how to become a paid guest blogger. Matt Allabastro, guest blogger at TravelingMailbox.com, will discuss where to find work, how much to charge for your services, and how to write blog posts that people want to buy. Whether you're an experienced blogger or just getting started, you will leave this session with the skills to make money from your writing.
Not sure if you are on .com or .org? One ways to tell is that your website address ends in [website name].wordpress.com.
