Note: Blogging 101 and Blogging 201 cover the same content each time they are offered.
Have you just started blogging (welcome!), or are you looking to breathe new life into a blogging habit that’s fallen by the wayside? Blogging U. is a great way to get on track, with bite-size assignments, a supportive community, and staff to support you. We’re offering two courses in July — learn more:
Blogging 101: Zero to Hero — July 6 – 24
Blogging 101 is three weeks of bite-size blogging assignments that take you from “Blog?” to “Blog!” Every weekday, you’ll get a new assignment to help you publish a post, customize your blog, or engage with the community.
You’ll walk away with a stronger focus for your blog, several published posts and a handful of drafts, a theme that reflects your personality, a small (but growing!) audience, a grasp of blogging etiquette — and a bunch of new friends.
Blogging 201: Branding and Growth — July 20 – 31
Blogging 201 is a two-week challenge that gives you the tools to define your brand, build your audience, use your stats to grow your traffic, and bring your older posts fresh attention. You don’t need to have completed Blogging 101 to register, although it makes a great foundation.
Please note that we ask you not to register for Blogging 101 and 201 at the same time; Blogging 201 assumes that you have some readers and have already accomplished a lot of what we cover in the 101-level course. Both courses will be offered several more times throughout the year.
How do Blogging U. courses work?
Blogging U. courses exist for one reason: to help you meet your own blogging and writing goals.
- Courses are free, flexible, and open to all.
- You’ll get a new task to complete each day, along with our best advice and favorite resources. Do them on your own time, and interpret them however makes sense for your specific blog and personal goals — we’re not grading you, we’re not checking to make sure you complete every task, and there’s no “wrong” way to use the resources we give you.
- We’ll post new assignments here on The Daily Post each weekday at 12AM GMT. Each assignment will contain all the inspiration and instructions you need to complete it. Weekends are free.
- Each course will have a private community site, the Commons, for chatting, connecting, and seeking feedback and support. Daily Post staff and Happiness Engineers will be on hand to answer your questions and offer guidance and resources.
