decor8 Blogging Workshop

February 26, 2009

It’s official! I’ve decided to follow the lead of my current teacher Susannah Conway and become a bit of a teacher myself. I’m going to start with an e-course in April all about blogging!  This fun workshop will cover topics such as: building a presence online through your blog (good for anyone who is a writer, crafter, designer, etc.), how to attract readers, a blog ad how-to guide, photo copyrights, how to make your images look great, blog template ideas, how to write from your heart, and creative ideas when it comes to networking online, organizing your inbox, topic ideas, dealing with negativity, and overcoming writer’s block.

If this interests you please email me (holly AT decor8blog.com) with exact details of what you’d like to get out of the class so that I can potentially work your suggestions into the course materials. The course will also include some videos from me to you, too!

Enrollment will begin March 15th so stay tuned! TIP: You can get on my list to receive pre-registration details before I post enrollment on decor8 since the class will be limited to around 150 students, first come, first serve. Getting on the list will give you a chance to enroll 2 days prior to my official post on decor8.

Yay! I can’t believe I’m about to do this — I can’t wait!

    Good for you, Holly. You’ll learn as much as you’ll teach…which has been the best part of my teaching experience. Best of luck!

    Do you know how much you’ll be charging for these e-courses? I would love to take part but the budget is a wee bit tight now-a-days.

    • Reply decor8 February 26, 2009 at 9:08 pm

      Of course Bonnie! I’m asking all who are interested to email me so I can put your name on the list so that when I have all of the details, I can notify the list first before posting it on decor8. I’ll only offer this on a limited enrollment of 150 students so that students in the workshop can interact freely with me and with one another in the forum I will have on the e-course site. Thank you so much! :)

  • Reply Anna February 26, 2009 at 9:15 pm

    That sounds great! I’m just getting started and trying to figure things out on my own right now.

    I would love to participate in this as well. You inspired me to attend a workshop to fuel my creative spirit, and I’m planning a trip to both ArtFest and Squam (in Sept).

    I think a blogging workshop would round things out nicely.
