This is an online course of 2 parts designed by the Blogging University to help us as bloggers advance our blogging goals. Every task is voluntary! This means that we can complete them all, leave them, or interpret them; however, we can choose.
According to the team:
If a task asks you to do something that doesn’t feel quite right for your blog, look at the why of the task instead. We don’t just give you tasks, we tell you why we’re suggesting them. Is there something you can do that’s right for your blog and gets you the same result? The why is the crux; the task is just our best suggestion.
I love the idea of having some freedom when learning new things. In addition to trying out new tasks, investigating “Why” also gives bloggers a space for reflection and thinking aloud to find out what suits them and their goals behind blogging.
Please, find more details about these two mini-courses below:
Blogging 101: Zero to Hero — July 6 – 24
Blogging 101 is three weeks of bite-size blogging assignments that take us from “Blog?” to “Blog!” Every weekday, we will get a new assignment to help us publish a post, customize our blog, or engage with the community. During this course, we will walk away with a stronger focus for our blog, several published posts and a handful of drafts, a theme that reflects our personality, a small (but growing!) audience, a grasp of blogging etiquette — and a bunch of new friends.
Blogging 201: Branding and Growth — July 20 – 31
Blogging 201 is a two-week challenge that gives us the tools to define our brand, build our audience, use our stats to grow our traffic, and bring our older posts fresh attention. We don’t need to have completed Blogging 101 to register, although it makes a great foundation.
I feel so excited to add more touches to my new blog.
Let’s get started!
