And, if you are a woman in Philadelphia who has a blog, I strongly urge you to attend my upcoming Skillshare class, "Blogging Basics for Girls." It's all going down on Wednesday, September 7th from 7pm-9pm at the Field House on 12th and Filbert. Where else can you have a drink and talk about RSS feeds with a bunch of other rad girls? Don't answer that. Here's the class description:
I'm putting together the SICKEST Powerpoint presentation to show you guys. I'm not gonna give anything away, but it's going to make Transformers look like the freakin' Teletubbies. Snap yer ticket up because my class WILL sell out.
This class will teach girl bloggers of all skill levels how to maximize their blog's potential. We will go over things all bloggers should know. Everything from the pros and cons of different platforms, analyzing stats, implementing RSS feeds, building traffic, and utilizing social media effectively will be discussed in a relaxed and fun environment. All women are welcome to attend whether you've had a blog for years or just started yours on a whim last week and have no idea what an RSS feed is or why you should have one. Don't worry about it; I'll guide you through it all. Sorry, guys! This class is for women only.
Instead of teaching you about love candles,
I'll teach you about blogging tips and tricks
Feel free to bring something to take notes on. You can bring your laptop if you want, but it's not mandatory. I plan on showing an entertaining Powerpoint presentation along with a funny lecture so come hang out, have a drink from the bar, and enjoy yourself while we go over ways to kick your blog into high gear. And, bring your business card if you have one. We'll trade 'em like Garbage Pail Kids.
After the class, I will email all the students a cheat sheet with any relevant links I talked about so you can explore them further at your convenience.
