I am thinking about creating a blog about history-related stuff. ANybody here blog? How does one promote it, etc., etc.
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.
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.
