Upcoming Blogging Workshops
Becoming an Essex blogger is fun and easy. Many contributors started without ever attending a workshop. They just pitched a relevant, timely idea and we approved it. With a little editorial back-and-forth and some coaching on style, title, subtitle, and graphics a community-generated article was born!
After the first couple of posts most Essex bloggers discover that conjuring up hyperlocal content ideas becomes second nature. And it’s fun!
If you’d like to attend a workshop to learn strategies for creating popular, original articles sign up for our “Be a Better Blogger” newsletter. (It’s located in the Connect menu under “Newsletters” at the top of any page on the Essex Blog.) We will email you workshop announcements plus periodic blogging tips and tutorials. Before you know it, you’ll become a citizen journalist.
