About This Class

so over the years I've been asked the question about blogging a lot.. . . something normally along the lines of the following.

  • I want to make a fashion blog
  • I want to put my photos up for free somewhere
  • how should I promote my courses
  • I don't want to pay for hosting
  • I don't want to learn anything, I'm not a geek.

so much so that I thought I would make a small course about my suggestion for blogging (in 2016 at least) of where you should host your blog if you're looking to keep the costs low but you want something reliable that can be seen by a broad audience and that plugs into twitter already.

in this course about medium (super quick in twenty minutes to give you a bit of a taste of what to expect) blogging I look at the feature set and why setting up on medium is a really low cost way of blogging from your own domain name with only the ongoing cost of your domain name to really worry about.

we cover the following areas. 

  • apart from the price of a domain name, you could be blogging for free!
  • video embeds, free picture hosting without the worry of cost
  • linking your domain name to medium is free
  • building publications, run your own mini news site for your team/community
  • why the medium is more powerful as a blogging platform than WordPress
  • power tips of using the platform with graphics and links for your online courses.
