Blogging 101 Workshop

Tonight I attended a Blogging 101 workshop run by a friend of mine Mr. Mike Seyfang (@fang for twits) who is a bit of a social media guru. It was really fun to go back to first principles with a room full of people learning about something I enjoy doing in my spare time and involving themselves in this time blackhole :)

So if you find yourself looking for new blogs to follow can I suggest those from the 'class'? They're new so give them time to develop and, of course, be gentle...

  1. Do you just read science blogs James?!

  2. Pretty much :)
    Im happy to help others start them though. You interested in starting a Prone to Reverie style one?

  3. You mean starting a good blog? Nah I'll just stick with my mediocre one!

    Besides, it's way too hard to be bound only to one topic. I don't know how you do it... You have a passion for communicating. I have a passion for rambling...

  4. I thought you quit your livejournal page? It was good, I loved it!

  5. I time-capsuled by LJ - and started a new at blogspot. should redirect there if you're a keen bean.

    What's DoTW doing these days then?

  6. I just subscribed to :)

    Thomas has taken the reigns of DoTW but I still put things up there occasionally.

    Perhaps we should move this to Facebook :)

  7. Hi James, sorry to bother you, I was wondering if I could ask a favour please. Your link directs to the original site I created on the night, and I'm still getting referrals to the old blog. I was wondering if please you could change the link so it directs to Thanks!! Hilary

  8. @ Hilary
    No problem, I'll change it now :)

  9. Thanks James :)

    btw "there new" - sorry not trying to be a git - just I know I'd want it pointed out if I'd done it! I'm know I'm strange ;)

  10. ha! and then I do a typo in my comment. I always read what I think I've written, not what's actually there

  11. We were at this workshop and just launched our website. So we'd like to say a big thankyou for your help!

    Here it is:
