That might come across as a bit of a bizarre question so let me explain. A year ago I made the decision to join my local writing group, which has gone pretty well (lots of prompts that have inspired me to churn out a few well-received short stories as well as attending some interesting talks by writers). About halfway through the year I raised the topic of blogs and the group now has its own site on WordPress. And now, to mark my first anniversary, I’m giving a talk to the rest of the group (and potential newcomers) on blogging.
The evening in question is now less than a week away and I haven’t got very far in planning what I’m actually going to say.
Current thoughts are:
- examples (hey, it could be yours!)
- here’s mine
- this is the group’s
Naturally, I will keep everyone entertained by my witty banter but I do have an hour to fill. Although I don’t want it to get too technical and complex it would probably be useful to explain how to set up an account and post a first blog. If there’s a nice video out there that shows it in step by step detail, that would save a lot of tedious time and hassle – shout if you know of one!
So if you have any suggestions on what I should include and any resources that would be useful to the absolute newbie blogger please let me know. I just kind of picked it up as I went along so have never investigated the ‘how to’ bits of WordPress. I might just have a wander over there now… (and hopefully avoid the temptation of Empire: Total War that I got for Christmas).
