Last night I hosted the first See Jane Write members-only workshop and it was a huge success. About a dozen members and I gathered at the Desert Island Supply Co. (DISCO) to discuss blogging and social media.
I kicked off the night by sharing some of my personal online experiences and striving to answer questions that the ladies sent to me beforehand. Topics covered included the purpose of blogging and using social media, choosing the best platform for your blog, deciding how often to post, managing multiple social media accounts, monetizing your blog and building your blog readership and social media following. We also discussed blog photography, RSS feeds, and more!
Then it was time to get busy.
These members-only events are called workshops for a reason. They’re designed to encourage attendees to take at least one action step before they leave. So after I spoke, the ladies got to work. One member made her first post to her WordPress site. One member – who’s new to social media – set up a Facebook account. Another started an account on Twitter. And another left with a new editorial calendar.
Still, there was so much more I hoped to do and share. So I’ll be hosting these workshops (sometimes with guest speakers) quarterly. If you don’t want to miss out, become an official member of See Jane Write today.
Special thanks to DISCO for being our venue partner for these workshops!
And thanks to all the ladies who came out. All the laughter shared was my favorite part of the night!
