Business Blogging Class
Interesting in learning more about blogging? I’m co-teaching a Business Blogging class at Sierra Commons with Coryon Redd. Part One will be Tuesday, May 13th 6:30-8:30, click here to sign up. We taught the class earlier this year and had such great feedback from the introduction that we’ve expanded the class into a two part series to allow us time to give more examples. So if you’ve been thinking of diving into the social media world and not sure where to start, this is a great in depth crash course on why blogging is beneficial for a business marketing agenda. If you’re already blogging and want to take the second half of the class mark your calendar for Tuesday, June 3rd from 6:30-8:30 at Sierra Commons.
Here are some of my favorite blogging pearls of wisdom:
- Create a mission statement
- Be consistent
- Blog about what you’re passionate about
- Be conscience and visually interesting
- Name drop, link to other blogs/businesses/organization, create a community
- Set realistic goals for your blog, once a month, twice a week, you chose the magic number and stick to it
- Promote, promote, promote, writing the blog is only part of marketing, learn how to share your blog via social media
And since we all know that I love giveaways, I’ve got one spot to giveaway to the May 13th class, plus a free one hour consultation with Peak & Pine Small Batch Social Media company. Please post a comment on this blog post with either the link to your blog or business and why you’d like to win a spot to the class and I’ll post the winner on Friday, May 9th.

I promise to take good notes Ruth, sorry you can’t make the class, but if you win I’ll connect you with the fabulous folks at Peak & Pine.
Tips to start a blog would be helpful
If you win, will you join us? We’re going to give you some basics and lots of reasons on why….
This would be very helpful as I don’t understand how to blog and it could benefit my company.
We’d love to have you at the class, promise you’ll walk with a better understanding on how you can use your blog for your business.
Looking forward to the class! Love reading and looking at all of your social media posts!

Can you elaborate more on the differences between the two classes? My company already has a blog but it needs some work. Would I feel lost if I just attended the second class? Thanks!
No, the second class would be a great fit, look forward to meeting you.
I’m actually taking the class so that I can help promote a local non profit that is near and dear to our hearts. 😉
We actually have a wedding tasting this Tues so wont be able to attend… but I will attend the June 3 class. Thanks Erin!
Would love to be there! Any chance for a webinar? It’s only New Zealand. I am just about to redo my whole website and put it onto a prophoto blog and I would love to know how to grow my business with online marketing tools – the BLOG. Thanks so much. Still any chance to win the 1h with Peak&Pine. They look like fun! love, Stephanie 🙂
I love that you’re reaching out over the wide ocean to connect… I can see if there’s a distance learning option just for you.
