Do you want to blog, but don't know where to start?


Have you started a blog, but are wondering where now?

Then join pro-blogger Lucy Pearce and some of our 12 Week Students for 'Get Blogging'. In just three hours she'll have you fired up and ready to go.
This fast-paced, information-rich course is accessible to all. Join her on a whistle-stop tour of the food blogging world and see what's hot and what's not, right now. You'll see just how diverse food blogging is. And where you might fit in.
She'll share the different blogging platforms, their pros and cons so that you can make an informed choice when you set up your own blog. And then the fun begins as she gives you a guided tour behind the scenes of Blogger, the most user-friendly platform for beginners.
What you'll learn:
the basics of blog design 
how to customise basic blogging templates
the most useful gadgets and gizmos to use
the secrets behind writing popular posts
how to spread the word about your blog
how to find and keep readers
the variety of ways that you can make money from your blog
where to find technical support
There will be time to answer your questions and help you brainstorm ideas to create your very own "magazine of you", be it a personal blog, recipe site or business platform. 
You will leave with a comprehensive set of notes to refer back to as you establish your blog,
confident to build, design and grow your blog, whatever your current level of technical expertise.
