For the continuing education partnership between Baruch and the J-School, I’m teaching a Blogging Best Practices course on three Monday evenings this month. We had our first class this past week and the next one will be on April 25th. Based on a whole set of awesome questions I received from Olivia on Wednesday, I thought I might invite Entrepreneurial Journalism students to attend. On the 25th, we plan to discuss:
- Common terms to blogging
- Types of blogging and their characteristics (personal vs. corporate vs. publication vs. etc.)
- Introduction to WordPress, and how it compares to other platforms
- Legal, copyright and community considerations
Our class period starts at 6:30 pm on Monday, April 25th and runs to 8:30 pm. Jeremy mentioned you might be getting out of class early that day so I imagine you won’t miss much.
If you’re interested, please let me know by next Friday, the 22th so I hold your spot and send you the necessary readings.
O’Reilly Media, one of the most successful tech publishers of the last twenty years, announced a new API and API contest today. Contests and hackathons are a pretty popular way these days to get people using your API. Anyways, they also published a piece called “3 ways APIs can benefit publishers” which should, in turn, better understand the opportunities.
For those who want to learn about making cosmetic changes to personal or class blogs, please stop by our HTML/CSS workshop this Wednesday, March 23rd at 5:30 PM in room 442. The hands-on exercises will cover how to style links, text, headings, backgrounds and more. It will also be a great time to ask specific questions about your websites.

Lastly, to have your first and last name appear before the title, you’ll need to update your profile information to include your first and last name. You can do so in the WordPress admin by going to “Users” -> “My Profile” and filling out the requisite fields.
