Blogging for Writers
You’ve heard it all before – writers should blog! But what is a blog? How do you set one up? And won’t it take over from my real writing?
This course will help you answer these questions. Blogging is a key tool for writers but it doesn’t have to be a chore. We’ll show you how to start from scratch, no experience required. Or if you have a blog, you can pick up some trade secrets and learn how to make your blog stand out even more.
Blogging offers you the opportunity to connect with readers, writers, editors and agents. Befriending other writers also ensures that you have the inside scoop on freelance writing news and on what publishers are looking for. It also builds your platform and helps you stay disciplined!
Each week will include an email lecture with easy to follow illustrations, so you can just point and click. You will also carry out short tasks which build on your blogging skills. By the final week, you will have a blog set up.
During the four week course, we will look at the different types of blog; discuss which one is better for you; show you how to include photos or video in your blog; help you decide on the right style; look at the ways to monetise a blog and crucially how to use blogging to promote yourself as a writer.
