UPCOMING WORKSHOP: Blogging for Beginners

There's now less than a month to sign up for my next Blog Workshop! 
Blogging for Beginners (& Improvers) will take place on 
Saturday 27th October.
It's a 3.5 hour information-packed workshop ideal for those who have yet to begin a blog or for those who want to improve on what they have started. 

The workshop will give you the chance to develop your blog idea, learn the tools to set it up, keep it interesting, promote it, and gain a readership. I will share with you all the do's and don't I've learnt over the last 4 years of blogging.

Below is a rough guideline of what we'll cover:

Introduction to Blogging 
Online vs Offline
Inspiration - Analysis of Material
The Blog Post - do's & don'ts
The Big Idea – Group discussion; exercises to develop your idea
Set it up – Blog platform, layout, design, style...
Content – multimedia, changing content, linking, widgets 
Building an Audience – tools for marketing your blog
Social Networking – Facebook, Twitter

There will be handouts to take away so you won’t have to remember everything!

If you've been meaning to start a blog for a long time, why put it off any longer? Come along to a friendly, fun and informative workshop! 

Saturday 27th October
10am - 2.00pm (including 30min break) 
@ 77 Tower Bridge Road, SE1 4TW * (above 'Lost & Found')

* Some of you may recognise the venue which inspired 'Shop Girl Diaries' - yes, there will be lots of sparkling chandeliers above your head!

I began my blog in June 2008. Since then it has been turned into a book and a short film. It won the Completely Novel Author Blog Awards (published writer category) in 2010 and it has just been featured in the new guidebook ‘Blogging for Creatives.’

'Emily Benet's Blog Workshop is ideal for anyone interested in 

blogging and not sure where to start. Emily takes you through the 

basics and really gets you thinking about what your blog should be 
about. I picked up some great hints and tips from the workshop and am 
already seeing an increase in traffic to my blog. A morning definitely well-spent!' – Amy Duthie, blogger of my tattered notebook
