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.

What we learn with pleasure we never forget.

I am an avid user of Wordpress and I was not aware that I can use medium with my own domain name. I really enjoyed your class.

------ my backstory ------

currently saving to buy a laser cutter for co-working and co-creation pod called apiary and get mobile driving a vw t5 transporter across the uk and europe

sold my domain name to evan williams from twitter (they were building medium) for five figures. a great year!

assisted a town called ‘phil campbell’ in alabama (bbc news) which was a life changing event for me in terms of what i wanted to do with the rest of my life

helped lifecast from sleepydog get into the first apple app store to be part of the first 500 apps ever launched worldwide – proud social media moment.

bought a domain, (me-d-em) and ever since I’ve bartered my time as a transmedia digital artist in the social media realm. a brand advocate for word of mouth agencies from behind the lens of a mobile phone or camera.

during regularly drinking sessions at the abbey in burton on Trent I ended up on the team time episode of history hunters which is now unfortunately on youtube
