Blogging Workshop

By Youth Project Officer - 7 March 2008 34

Blogging with Gillian Polack
10am – 5pm on Saturday 8 March (this weekend)

Writing weblogs can help you get started with non-fiction; it can add to your writerly renown (or notoriety); it can even earn you money.  We will start with the basics of blogging, from choosing the blog interface that’s right for you, to selecting the right subject and style.  Other subjects we will look at will include: Writing for the vertical page.  Writing for the unknown audience.  Attracting an audience.  Interacting with your audience.  Keeping your audience.  SEO optimalisation, technorati tags, carnivals and other strange terms:  which ones do you need to know about, and what do you need to know?  What do the numbers really mean? Getting paid for your blogging (becoming a problogger).

Gillian Polack’s blogs have 2,600 regular readers and cover subjects ranging from writing, to history, to food, to daily happenings.  Venue: ACT Writers Centre Workshop Room. 

Cost: $140 non-members, $90 members, $80 member concessions. 

Bookings on 6262 9191

the word pwned actually works better in lower case.

Perhaps some members of this site could run it’s own “How to be a fascist, and attempt to undermine the ALP” blog. lol.

I bet you this guy says “PWND!” every time someone shells out the cashola.

Exactly what is there to learn about blogging ?

Type in this box here, and click on the button at the bottom. That’ll be $140, ktksbye.

So, should we run our own *free* blogging course in this thread? 😛

Jazz 1:05 pm 07 Mar 08

or you can make it up as you go along like we did with riotact (we started blogging before there were really terms to describe it) and attract an audience of 30,000 readers per month

print your own money comes to mind

My original question, was genuine. If there is anything else offered that couldn’t be found by reading the plethora of blogging reference sites on the net, I’d like to know. And, yes, as mentioned, especially for the price being asked.

Looked kinda interesting…until I saw the price.

And a buck for SGS as well…

I will chip in a dollar for Chester if she agrees to go.

barney 10:46 am 07 Mar 08

Pretty expensive! Perhaps this is aimed at the ‘pube’ market.

shiny flu 10:45 am 07 Mar 08

Ahhh…. right ‘pro blogger’ eh?

bonfire 10:09 am 07 Mar 08

writers that are unsuccessful often run writing workshops where skills can be further diluted.

Holden Caulfield 9:42 am 07 Mar 08

I don’t mean to be rude, but what can this course offer that 10 minutes searching Google can’t deliver?
