How to Start and Grow your Blog to Change Lives 2017 Fall Seminar

2017 Fall Seminar on Blogging

October 14, 2017 

Registration at 8:30 am


Have you always wanted to start blogging but didn’t know how or where to begin? Maybe you have a message on your heart and lack the knowledge in setting up, running, and having your own blog.

It’s easy to get lost in this world of blogging and online marketing. And if you’re a non-technical person, it can be downright frustrating.

Sound familiar?

Blogging is not only something every author should do, it’s a way to connect with your readers, entertain, educate, and change people’s lives. We are excited to have, for the first time in years, a fall seminar that will take your life to the next level.

In this year’s seminar, you’ll learn how to discover and refine your purpose in blogging, learn the ins and outs of blog design, and how growing your audience base.

We’ll also help you learn how to write blog posts that get shared because no one wants a blog that sinks without a ripple.

Bring your laptop. Bring a lunch.

Let’s BLOG!
