A quick post class wrap up from today. I hope you got a ton of value from Stanford Smith joining class. I personally took a ton of great ideas away from today. Now it’s time to implement then.
- write a reflection paper on your key takeaways from today. Focus on information Stan provided that you can act on to have a great start to your blogging and social media activities.
- Watch the Erin Podolak interview. Tweet your questions to her before class. Just a reminder, this is part of your participation grade @erinpodolak
- work on Minute #4 of the 7 Minute Blog Strategy
INTERVIEW WITH ERIN
INTERVIEW REPLAY WITH STAN
I apologize for the audio difficulty with SpreeCast. Next week we might do a Google Hangout instead. However, you can watch a reply of Stan’s visit here. The interview starts around 10:00 minutes in, you can skip to that point.
FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO SET UP THEIR OWN SITE
I recommend using Dreamhost.com just because I have a lot of experience with it. They have great WordPress support (one click installation). You also get a free domain name for the first year ($9.95 value) as well. If you sign up for the annual hosting plan with them, you can use the discount code OrangeCheetah97 (my kids picked the name) and you’ll receive $79 off the first year of hosting. So a year of hosting with a domain will cost around $25 for the year.
