This class is intended for novice bloggers whether personal or professional (15 and older).
In "Effective Blog Writing" you will learn how to find and research story ideas; how to effectively write attention-grabbing stories; and how to share your stories via search engine optimization and social media.
Students should bring an internet-capable laptop with any basic word processing program. Students should also have a Google and Facebook account.
