Creating Your Own Jewellery Blog
Handmade jewellery is more popular than ever but how do you get your story across?
Many people looking to buy unique and handmade items want to know the story behind them and the maker. A blog (short for weblog - a type of online diary) is an excellent way of telling your story and connecting with buyers.
Techniques covered in this class include:
Setting up a free blog using google’s blogger.com <http://blogger.com> service
Formatting your blog to make it look attractive to readers
Learning how to write a blog post, include an image etc
How to link other social media you may already have to your blog e.g. twitter, facebook, pinterest
What to write and how often
Pre-work for the blogging class:
In order for you to get the most out of this class we recommend that you do/bring the following:
Ensure you bring your email address and password to the class. This may sound basic but many people have their password saved on their computer and can’t remember it when they come to class! You will need it in order to confirm your registration on blogger
Bring images of your jewellery, of yourself etc - anything you would like to add to your blog. You can bring these in JPEG format on a flashdrive/pendrive, you can email them to yourself or have them in an online storage space e.g. dropbox (remember your password for this too!). It is useful to have one or two photos to use in the class.
You will have set up a blog and know how and what to blog about.
LJS laptops will be available for use during the class, however you can bring your own laptop along if you prefer.
