How to write a successful blog

Course summary

A good blog says look at me, and tells the reader what you can do for them.

We blog to get noticed for our business, service or hobby.

Blogs tell a story that positions the author as the expert or the go-to person in their field.

If you’re not a confident writer, or don’t know where to begin, this course will kickstart your creativity and show you how to engage the reader effectively while avoiding the mistakes that many bloggers make.

Learn how to inspire, entertain and provide vital information to your audience.

  • Ingredients of a good story
  • Showing rather than telling
  • Flair/tone – Standing out
  • Headlines

What you need to bring

  • laptop or writing materials
