Registration for March’s courses is now closed. Check back later in the month to see what’s on tap for April!
The next session of Blogging U. begins Monday, with Blogging 101 and Photography 101. Learn more about each course, see how Blogging U. works, and register!
Blogging 101: Zero to Hero
March 2 – 20
Blogging 101 is three weeks of bite-size blogging tasks to kickstart a new or dormant blog. You’ll walk away with a stronger focus, several published posts, 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. Build blogging habits and connections to keep you going over the long haul!
Photography 101: A Photo a Day
March 2 – 27
Photography 101 helps you hone your photographer’s eye. This four-week, intro-level course is open to all, from new bloggers to hobbyist photographers to pro-shooters. Each weekday, we’ll give you a new photography theme and tip — we might share advice on composition, working with different light sources, or image editing — and the community critique will inspire and motivate you.
How do Blogging U. courses work?
- 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.
- You’ll receive each assignment via email. 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.
How do I register?
While you’re free to register for both, we encourage you to try one course at a time, to be sure you get the most out of the experience. All courses will be repeated throughout 2015.
To register, just fill out this short form. Registration for each course remains open until the day before the course begins. You won’t receive an automated confirmation email, but you’ll receive a welcome email with more detailed instructions before your course(s) begin.
Registration for these courses is now closed. We’ll announce April’s Blogging U. offerings later in the month!
