The Value of Blogging and How to Love Your Own Blog Forever
Pamela Toler has been blogging twice a week for eight years. She will draw on her experience to teach students how to find inspiration for their blog posts in their daily lives and writing so that writing a blog doesn’t turn into a slog. (And what to do when slogging is the best you can manage.) She will talk about finding a focus, deciding how much to share about your personal life, making decisions about style, and building an editorial calendar.
Please note: this workshop will not include technical information on choosing software and setting up a blog.
Join live on September 21, 2019 at 9 a.m. Central Time. Recording also available.
About the instructor
Armed with a PhD in history, a well-thumbed deck of library cards, and a large bump of curiosity, author, speaker, and historian, Pamela D. Toler translates history for a popular audience. She goes beyond the familiar boundaries of American history to tell stories from other parts of the world as well as history from the other side of the battlefield, the gender line, or the color bar. Toler is the author of eight books of popular history for children and adults, including most recently Women Warriors: An Unexpected History
(Beacon Press, 2019). Her work has appeared in Aramco World, Calliope, History Channel Magazine, MHQ: The Quarterly Journal of Military History and Time.com.
