Very good general overview. Well organized, addressed all of the major topics in manageable short segments.
This has some really great information for a beginner blogger. I have attempted, several times, to get a blog started. I was just fumbling in the dark. This course, and others like it, have really helped me have more direction.

Health Communications Professional

I am health communications professional, freelance writer, and registered nurse. I am also a lifestyle blogger and I've been blogging at WordPress since 2014.

My first Skillshare class is a 30-minute introduction to blogging for beginner bloggers. The videos are basic - no fancy animations or anything like that - but I've included all the tips that I think are essential for those who'd like to give blogging a try.
