Did you know research shows that websites with blogs get 55% more traffic than sites without blogs? But where do you begin? What do you write about? How do you keep coming up with new ideas? How do you find the time?

In this interactive workshop you will learn:

  • Why Blogging can help you build your online presence
  • Five different types of Blogs – and how to utilize them
  • How to structure your Blog to encourage others to read it
  • How to write a Blog that fits your personality AND time constraints
  • How to keep fresh, new ideas flowing for your Blog topics

Handouts and worksheets will be provided in the workshop for note taking, but you will want to bring a notebook (or laptop) for writing exercises. Please feel free to bring a copy of one of your favorite blog posts (yours or someone else’s) to share with the group.
