Blogging has become one of the most popular tools for writers and authors to share their experiences and expertise in an informal and conversational style. Blogs are also a way to promote your business, your product and offer your readers something of value. What makes a blog popular and brings readers coming back week after week? In this workshop, we’ll discuss the key elements in creating a popular blog, from writing compelling headlines and content, to how to share your blog across the social media landscape and encourage others to share with their readers. We’ll also look at some popular blogging platforms and discuss which best suits your needs.
