It has been long understood that hobbies have positive psychological benefits; they give us a creative outlet, and improve the way we see the world. Blogging can be a hobby in itself, or a means to share a hobby with the online community. There is no limit to what you can blog about, but the most successful blogs come from a place of passion and genuine interest in a topic, coupled with good imagery and quality writing. In this course, we will touch on all the facets of what a blog is and what makes a blog successful. By the end of the course, each student will have their own blog published and the ability to continue writing posts on their own. If this sounds intimidating, don't worry. We want you to focus on the fun parts of blogging and have designed this course so that even the newest to the world of technology will feel comfortable. You will bring your portable device (laptop or tablet) to class to work on your blog or work between classes on a desktop device and bring your work to class.
