Everyone’s got a blog in them, right? It’s almost rude not to these days isn’t it? So, where do nascent bloggers turn if they want to ‘turn their blog into a profession’?
Well, not here, that’s for sure. We’d love to know. We just write stuff we like and run for cover. That wouldn’t really make a full day’s workshop, would it? Wouldn’t even have time to suck a bourbon in the coffee break.
We’re assuming that’s why we’ve not been invited to share our not not-inconsiderable knowledge to the people of Liverpool in this latest excursion in the real world by Blog North: a network of best bloggers from here, Manchester, Leeds and, we dunno, possibly Chorley.
For £25 you can learn from The Double Negative how to make your blog your job, and hear from The Next Web’s Martin Bryand about how technology can set you free.
As we say, we’d love to know. So, if you go, tell us, yeah?
The day’s workshops are:
Cutting edge social tools for a better online life. The Next Web’s Martin Bryant discusses the latest tools and trends online and how they can improve both your professional and personal life.
Is Twitter working hard enough for you? By Emma Bearman, the guiding light behind Leed’s power-blog The Culture Vulture.
Love your blog Q&A. Learn how to step up a gear from the founders of Liverpool’s online art criticism site, The Double Negative. Laura Robertson and Mike Pinnington outline how they turned blogging into a profession.
And there’s more. More networking. More art. More biscuits:
Lunch provided by Tate Liverpool, with ace culture blogs Creative Tourist, The Culture Vulture and The Double Negative, and Tate staff;
Free entry to the Tate’s summer exhibition (worth £12 – and a solid gold must see, folks)
An optional networking session hosted by The Double Negative, and friends.
You’ll also get a goody bag, an info pack to help you blog about the day, and free tea and coffee.
Book at the excellent Creative Tourist’s website here
Actually, we do have some advice. If you want to set up an art and culture blog, would you mind doing it somewhere else?
