Sure, blogging can be a great way to keep track of memories and for us to use as a form of free therapy.
For those of us who continue blogging, it has a lot to do with the friendships that we make, the community that we feel.
But, community isn’t something that automatically happens when you first hit “publish” on a blog post. How do you build community?
I get asked this question a lot and have shared some advice on how to start to do this on your own blogs.
Because it’s such a common question, Ashley and I decided that it would be our first class for How to Rock Your Blog, our new project that we told you about two weeks ago when we had our unofficial launch with the Kindle Fire giveaway.
Building Your Community and Engagement will offer you practical tips for what you can do on your blog to help build community. We’ll walk you through tips on how to make your blog community-friendly, how to identify your audience, how to attract engaged readers,and how to keep that community growing. Practical advice, to-do lists, and personalized suggestions will be covered in this course. Our goal is to take community from a blogging buzzword to a reality on your blog.
This will be a three week course with one live webinar a week where we will go over the outline for the week. Then, we will open it up to any questions you may have so no one is left feeling lost! Following the webinar, we will provide you with handouts with actual activities to perform that go along with that week’s session.
Once you are confirmed in the course, you will also be given access to private forums, where you can ask as many questions as you need to throughout your session. This will also lend us to partner and/or team work for some of our material!
The first class will kick off the week of April 2nd. Live webinars will take place on Tuesday evenings at 8:00pm ET. If you miss the live session, you will have the opportunity to catch up later. Participation is limited to the first 20 who register so that we can give you individual attention.
This course is being offered for an introductory rate of $30.
If you sign up for both the Community Building Class and How to Transfer from Blogger to WordPress, you’ll get both classes for $50. Also, those who participate in these first sessions will get special pricing on upcoming sessions like Using Photos Effectively on Your Blog. In the spirit of community building, the first “Things They Can’t Say” spot in May has been reserved for a Community Building class participant.
