Last month I ran a very successful workshop for writers/journalists on the topic of setting up a Wordpress.com portfolio site. I'm running it again later this month (November 21-22), here's the description:
As a writer, you know you need a website-something clean, professional and easy on the eyes. You also know it can cost serious money to hire a web designer to do it for you.
This two-day workshop, led by Emira Mears of Raised Eyebrow Web Studio, will guide you through the basics of setting up, configuring and customizing the look and feel of a Wordpress.com website. In two four-hour sessions, you will create an outline for your site, configure the features you need -- a blog, categories, pages, images, links to related information, etc. -- and select and customize a design. You'll also learn how to update content and make changes yourself over time. All for the affordable rate of $140.
Dates: November 21/22, 2009, 10 am - 2 pm
Cost: $140, plus GST (receipts available)
Endswell Room at The Flack Block
