Fabulous news! I’ll be running my Blogging for Burlesque Workshop at Hebden Bridge Burlesque Festival on Saturday 3rd May at 3.30pm.
I’m trying to keep the costs down to a minimum so the charge is extremely reasonable at £10 per person.
It’s a powerpoint workshop, there will be hand-outs of slides for people to make their own notes.
Is this workshop for you?
This workshop is aimed at anyone who would like to start a singular or a group blog. It’s for those who have no idea what blogging is and for those who may have started blogging but are not quite sure how to drive traffic to their posts.
What will be covered in the workshop?
I will be covering the following topics:
- Basics: What Is a Blog?
- What Does a Blog Look Like?
- Blogs for Burlesque
- Blogging Solo
- Group Blogging
- Blog Research
- Blogging Platforms (Blogger/Tumblr/Wordpress)
- Getting Started (Blog Name, Posts, What to blog about)
- The Benefits of Blogging (this includes a section on SEO – search engine optimisation)
- Simple Website Set Up (setting up a website from Blogger/Tumblr/Wordpress)
- Other Burlesque Blog Websites and what they can teach us
Questions are encouraged throughout the presentation and the slides with links will be sent out to attendees after the workshop.
What experience do I have?
I have over 10 years’ experience of blogging.
My blogs have been re-published by Paper Moon and 21st Century Burlesque. I have also written articles for the Burlesque Bible. All based on my foundation of blogging.
In addition to this I am a self-employed freelance copywriter. I write press releases and blogs for companies with SEO for promotion purposes.
In my day job I write web content for a large University.
I am well versed in the art of blogging, SEO, social media and am successful at promoting myself and my business through these online elements.
