Blogability Workshop

thumbnailCAZKPTYAMonday, November 23, 8 p.m., Shapiro Center Lounge

You don’t have to be a “writer” to be a blogger.

Join Katherine Bascom ’10 and Lily Mandlin ’10 for a workshop that will focus on how to be successful on-line contributors or blog-entrepreneurs.  Blogging is becoming an integral part of how we communicate.  The informal setting of this workshop will allow you to talk about topics that you might want to blog about, concerns you may have about getting started, and to figure out what kind of “blogger” you want to be.  Activities will be discussion based with a few selections of interesting blogs to get the conversation going. 

Home-baked brownies will be in attendance and you should be too!
