Blogging For (Creative) Beginners

I’ll be giving a half day beginner blogging course in Kilkenny in May under the ArtLinks banner. With details being finalised just before the weekend and rolling out with the new ArtLinks business courses being promoted for the summer, I’ll have to say I’m looking forward to giving the course and working with more creative types in Kilkenny.

That said, the course will be promoted to creative practitioners working within Kilkenny, Carlow, Waterford, Wexford and Wicklow and should attract a good blend of visual artists, musicians, writers and the likes. This will be the second course I’ve been involved in putting together for ArtLinks, having facilitated a “Getting Ahead In The Music Industry” day (my 90 minute talk focusing on effective use of the web for musicians) in Wicklow last November.

For musicians who are new to blogging and don’t want to wait until May for a chat, have a gander of Kyra Reed’s recent blog post for TuneCore on Why Every Artist Needs A Blog.

It is also nice to see that the Kilkenny Arts Office have also started the ball blogging about their Artist In Residence programme at the gallery at 72 John Street.

    Hopefully it will be a good morning and bring a few more creative types into the online world 🙂

    Oooh I like this idea Ken. Looking forward to hearing more!

    (Fair play to you!)

    Thank you for the mention Ken. Good luck with your seminar on blogging. I’m interested to know how it goes and how you set it all up. Let me know if you’d like a copy of my ebook for reference or recommendation to your attendees.

    Can I go?

    @Kyra Thanks very much. I might just take you up on that ebook offer, especially given the people I’ll be working with.

    @Darren If you can swing getting away on a Wednesday there’s nothing stopping you 🙂
