I’m teaching another blog class. It’s happening on 13 October at Bridge Books in Maboneng. The class is limited to 10 aspiring bloggers and there are six spots left (as of today, 19 September). You should sign up.
A couple of months ago I confessed that for the first time in eight years, I was struggling to blog. I had hoped that feeling would have gone away by now but it hasn’t. The feeling is weird and disconcerting.
Perhaps this post isn’t the best place to focus on my current lack of blogging motivation. But then again, maybe it is. This is reality, baby. Blogging is a wonderful form of creative expression but it ain’t no walk in the park.
I like to talk about reality in my blog classes. In these classes, we don’t focus much on making money or building massive social media followings. Instead we focus on ideas. We focus on the best reasons to blog and how to create a blog that’s honest and compelling and emotionally fulfilling for the person who writes it. We talk about how writing a blog can change your life, as it has mine.
We share with each other, eat some nice food, and do a bit of exploring around the neighborhood to draw visual inspiration from the world around us.
I know this is cliché, but I learn as much from my blog classes as the people I’m supposedly teaching. It’s probably just what I need right now.
Blog Class in Maboneng
All my previous blog classes have taken place at the Bridge Books City Central location; this will be my first time teaching it at the newer Bridge Books shop in Maboneng. I’m excited about it because this is a really cool space and Maboneng is a fun place to explore.
The format of the class is flexible and interactive with a lot of discussion between participants. If you’re already a blogger, you’ll walk away with tips and ideas on how to strengthen and grow your blog. If you’re thinking of starting a blog but not sure why or how, I can help with that too.
Let’s help each other.
This is a one-day class and costs R1000. Sign up by registering and paying on this Quicket page, hosted by Bridge Books.
