    I have attended a really good class about blogging given by Hanover Economic Development.      I'm not sure if they are going to be offering the blogging class again, but I know that they have repeated the twitter & linkedin classes.  There isn't another blogging class scheduled right now, but it is worth keeping keeping an eye on the event calendar.  The classes can be found at grcc.com on Events tab.  Classes are $20 and well worth it.

    I've been blogging since 2006 at http://peevishpen.blogspot.com. Years ago, I heard an agent say at a conference that your blog is your column—it shows the world you can write. I mostly blog about rural life, retirement, reading, writing, and my animals. Whenever I post pictures of my cats, I get a lot more hits. 

    Whenever I update the blog (once or twice a week now), I usually announce the new post's link on Facebook and Twitter. I also have a "Frugal Living" blog and a Nace family genealogy blog that I don't update very often.

    The next VWC symposium, 3 August 2013, at Piedmont Virginia Community College, in Charlottesville, will have a workshop on blogging and other social media. Publicity on that symposium will be out in a few weeks.
