Get Yourself Out There! An Introduction to blogging.
Wednesday, 27 February 2013 from 19:15 to 21:30 (GMT)
This is a workshop for people who want to blog but are not sure how to get started or where to go with it. It will give you the basic skills you need to begin blogging, without the need to know anything technical (no programming required).
Using Blogger.com, the aim of this workshop is to give you an online presence which is simple for you to maintain, particularly if you’re busy or dislike using the internet. Blogging should be fun!
The workshop will be held at coFWD, the coworking space at 161 Rochester High Street, on Wednesday, February 27th from 7.15pm – 9.30pm. The cost is just £12.50 and there are only six spaces.
You will need:
· An email address – you will automatically have a gmail account set up for you as part of your Google profile but it’s good to have an alternative for security.
· A unique password.
· A title for your blog – this is different from the web address and can be changed. The web address cannot be changed though, so I’d recommend using your name for that. E.g jayenolan.blogspot.co.uk is my blog address but the title is ‘A tingle in my fingers’.
Also, have a favourite picture of your own saved that you’re happy to share with the world, a favourite Youtube video you can find easily and a written piece about yourself you can use in your first posts. (You can always delete or amend afterwards).
I look forward to seeing you :)
Please note, our venue is a very old bank building that is being slowly shaped by a community of individuals for long-term Community Interest. Sadly the startup project is in its infancy and being run on limited funds so the building currently has some accessibility issues. If you have specific access or disability requirements and would like to participate in an event or activity please let us know at least 5 days before the event date so that we can do our utmost to resolve any potential problems to accommodate.
