I had the good fortune recently to sit down with my coworker and fellow writer, Bill DeRooy, to discuss the art of blogging. Bill just started his own blog as a way to get back into writing consistently (why don’t you go follow his blog as an encouragement to keep with it?), which is a fantastic reason for blogging.
As it happens, I’ll be leading a workshop on blogging after the main presentations at Jot in a few weeks. And since I knew that Bill was just getting started, I thought I’d ask him what he would want to learn from a blogging workshop. Here were a few of his responses:
- How do you make yourself more visible online?
- How does Google find your stuff?
- How often should I post?
These are wonderful questions. I have asked them myself. They give me a good place to start in creating a (hopefully) helpful worksheet for my workshop.
But I need more questions to answer.
I don’t claim to be an authority on blogging, I have been doing it consistently for a while now and I’m happy to shout my opinions at anyone who will listen.
Do you have questions that you would like answered in a blogging workshop setting? Are there any exercises that you’d like to see? What would the perfect handout include? Is is strange that I am questioning you for your questions?
Please leave your questions in the comments below. If you can’t make it to Jot, let me know and I’ll try to respond to your question in another way after the event.
I’m really looking forward to Jot, and I want to be as helpful as possible to the attendees.
