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.
