Blogging 101 Workshop with Dan Blank

Your new blog can help you promote your book, improve your craft as a writer, build your
brand, or just act as a fun escape from the daily grind.
Dan Blank has helped more than 300 professionals create and manage their blogs and use them to connect with niche communities online. As Director of Content Strategy & Development at Reed Business Information, he has worked with bloggers from more than 40 magazine brands, including Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and School Library Journal. Blank is recognized as an online media expert.

In the Blogging 101 course, you'll prioritize your goals, create a list of specific audiences you are targeting, write a blog post using search engine optimization tips, create an editorial calendar, explore niche communities, and more. You'll receive feedback on weekly assignments and use four weeks of your time to launch a blog. Instructor Dan Blank will be available for questions. The class starts January 28th and costs $199.99.

"Learning how to blog helps develop the two habits writers need most:
1. The consistent habit of writing and publishing
2. The consistent habit of connecting with readers"
