I Blog, You Blog, Weblog - Scottsbluff 

Description
Blogs are an easy way to not only receive information, but also to publish the information you have. More than just an online journal, blog-based publishing might be the best way for you to present your library's information to the public.

What can you expect if you attend this training session?
  • Learn what a blog is, who writes blogs, why blogs are so popular, and the different types of blogs.
  • View some of the best examples of LIS blogs and discover what makes them worth reading.
  • Create your own blog in just minutes using the free Blogger.com service.
  • Discover many of the options for customizing your blog to fit your needs.
  • Leave with ideas on just how blogging can be integrated into your library's Web site.
What should you bring with you to class?

In class you’ll be creating a blog of your own. You’re welcome to create a personal blog or a blog for your library. Either way, before class please take a few minutes to consider what you would like to blog about. In class you’ll be giving your blog a title and creating several posts on your topic of choice. A little advanced planning regarding these items will make the class run smoothly.

Attendees are expected to have familiarity with using the Web. (X)HTML experience is not necessary.

It is recommended, but not required, that you attend both this class and the RSS: A New Way of Communicating scheduled on March 17 at 1pm - 4pm.

Lunch is on your own.

Note: With costs being what they are these days we must stress that we need a minimum of five people per workshop in order to justify the travel costs for the instructor. As a result we appreciate any assistance you can provide in promoting these workshops and encouraging others to attend. Also, if you are planning on attending please do not wait to register as a decision on preceding with or cancelling the workshop will be made approximately two weeks prior.
