Introducing Marion’s Blog Tutorials for Technophobes

·    Would you like to start a blog but technophobia is holding you back?

·    Do you struggle with Typelists, trackbacks and HTML?

·    Have you set up a blog but want it to look more professional?

·    Would you like to create a smoked salmon website on a sardine budget?

I caught the blog bug back in June 2005 and since then have used it to create and write my own blogs – this very one, Wry Vita and my blog-website – www.MarionRyan.com.  Then my coaching clients began to bring me their technical blog challenges and I loved showing them how easy it was when you know how.  I use and recommend Typepad for all my blogs, by the way.

More recently I’ve been running Typepad group tutorials for The Abundant Coaches and I realise now that there’s a need for simple step-by-step guidance for people who get frustrated with experts who speak tech-ese and expect them to understand what they’re talking about!

So if you are now ready to get started with a blog – whether it’s to be a personal and private journal, a business blog or a blogsite you create yourself – why not join one of my upcoming group tutorials?  Sessions will comprise a maximum SIX callers to ensure everyone has a chance to have their questions answered.

For a list of dates and the first four topics, keep reading!

Thursday 27th September – 6pm BST

  • Blog Basics – Creating a post, personalised and multiple categories and ‘post continuation’ box

Tuesday 2nd October – 6pm BST

  • Using pictures in your posts and sidebars – inserting and re-sizing your pictures.  Trackbacks, pings and permalinks

Tuesday 9th October – 6pm BST

  • Adding Typelists, widgets, affiliate links and graphics to your sidebars or Paypal buttons to your posts like mine below!

Thursday 18th October – 6pm BST

  • Creating a Blog Website – using simple blog software to create a professional looking website – see my main website – MarionRyan.com or the simple but effective The Abundant Coach site for examples of what can be done

By the way… don’t worry if you don’t yet have a Typepad account.  You can get a 14 free trial by clicking here.  I recommend the Mid or Pro levels for the functionality you need and if you decide to continue after your trial period these will cost you $8.95 and $14.95 respectively per month, around £5 and £8 – how reasonable is that?  Mid level gives you up to three blogs on your account while the Pro, which I use, gives you unlimited blogs!
