Loads of people I talk to really want to get their own weblogs, but they don’t have the time or the technical knowledge to get things up and running for themselves. Wouldn’t it be great if they could get a little help?
I think that a short how-to, with some face-to-face and some Internet based training would be really helpful to get people moving.
The course would cover the basics – hosting and software, how to get up-and-running, editing your templates, adding photos and multimedia, how to write for maximum impact, writing for and reach your audience and so on.
I’ve had people from industry and academia ask me about this. It sounds like something that would be really useful.
