Let Craig Siulinski show you how to build your own genealogy blog.
This workshop is designed for beginners who are interested in learning the fundamentals of blogging.
You'll learn how to get started by:
- Determining the purpose of your blog
- Choosing a name
- Identifying your audience
- Creating your first blog post
- Adding text and images
- How commenting works
Participants are encouraged to bring their laptop computers and use the library's free Wi-Fi to build a blog during the workshop. To save time, please identify and have easy access to at least two images ready to attach to your blog. We will be using Blogger.com which is a Google product and requires a GMail address. Workshop attendees are encouraged to sign up for a free Google account if they don't already have one.
(Workshop participants without laptops will be able to follow along and will be able to build their blog at home).
The workshop is FREE for CGS members but is limited to ten participants. Non-members fee is $20.00 (non-refundable) and can be applied towards membership on the day of the workshop. Preregistration is required. Walk-ins will not be admitted.
Registration confirmations will be emailed to the first 10 participants who register. Additional names will be collected and placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations.
