Invitation to Blogging Best Practices class on April 25th

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.

Aside

Website hack session tomorrow, Wednesday, at 5:30 pm. Come one, come all! If you have any questions about setting up your personal or project website, using HTML/CSS, want to learn a little bit of Javascript, or anything else, please stop on by. I’d highly encourage you to detail your questions advance of the workshop so we can prepare resource links. This will be mostly question and answer format. Hit me with questions in the comments.

BarCamp NewsInnovation – April 30th

Aside

BarCamp NewsInnovation – April 30th. BCNI Philly, now in its 3rd year, is a pretty awesome day of talking about innovation in the news industry. It’s a barcamp, which means the sessions are determined by the participants. Last year I got to hear about APM’s Public Insight Network and Peer News, an online-only, subscription-only startup in Hawaii. Best of all: it’s free!

I’ll be headed down there again this year and would love to have any or all of you join. Hit me with any questions you have in the comments.
