What you'll learn in this blog training:

Blogs come in all shapes and styles, and have become an established part of the literary, journalistic, professional, and social landscape. They are a great way to establish a platform as a writer or expert, promote a business, or just let the world know what you’re up to. 

Perhaps you would like to start a blog. Or improve your blog. The beautiful thing about blogs is that you don’t have to wait for permission to publish your work. You can just start doing it. The trick, though, is to do it well. 

Here you’ll get an overview of the entire blog process—focusing your concept, setting up your blog, generating good content, attracting attention. All under the guidance of an experienced blogger. 

Notes:  
  • This course is geared for students who are new to blogging, or without much experience in the field.
  • Some technical advice will be offered, but there is no tech support for setting up or adjusting a blog.
  • If you wish to focus specifically on blog writing, then consider our Blog Writing course.

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

We offer refunds if students withdraw two or more days before a class begins. This comes with a $50 fee, but we will likely waive this for Coronavirus situations.   

---- 

Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

All Classes (except One-days and Write-Ins)
For a refund or credit, contact us two business days or more before your class starts. You can either choose to hold a full credit with us good for one year on other Gotham classes OR you can opt for a refund less a $25 administrative fee and your $25 registration fee ($50 total).


If you need to withdraw after your class has started (or one business day before it starts), you won’t receive a refund, but you’re welcome to a Gotham credit less the price of Week 1 and your $25 registration fee, but we need to hear from you two business days or more before Week 2 meets for that to happen. After that point, no credits are available.


One-day Intensives
You may reschedule a One-day Intensive one time, if you notify us before the class begins.


If you notify us two business days or more before your class begins, rescheduling is free. If you notify us less than two business days before your class begins, there is a $25 rescheduling fee. If you don’t notify us until after your class begins, we cannot reschedule you.


You may get a refund (minus a $50 fee) if you notify us two business days or more before your class begins.


Write-Ins
If you withdraw two hours or more before it begins, you’re welcome to a full credit good for one year toward another Write-In. No refunds are available. If you simply don’t show up and don’t notify us in advance, you forfeit your money.


A few more things
Credits are valid for one year and cannot be changed into refunds down the road.Simply not attending class or notifying the instructor does not mean you've officially withdrawn.Some exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis for medical emergencies with a doctor's note.Refunds take up to six weeks to process.


Please understand, we can't issue a refund after classes have started, even if you miss your first class. Similarly, we can't offer you a credit one day before your second class or after that. We understand that other obligations get in the way of attending class, but these policies allow us to get other interested writers into class early enough to have a good experience, and this allows us to offer our classes at a reasonable price. 


Important Notes:

  • Students are allowed to join a class in the second week.
  • Only those who pay the tuition in full can be guaranteed a place in class.
  • Class dates and times may be subject to change. A substitute may be assigned or make-up classes added to the end of the term.
  • Auditing and the recording of classes are not allowed.For all classes, students receive a record of payment and registration.
  • Gotham reserves the right to remove any student at our discretion.
  • Gotham does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, disability, socioeconomic status, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, age, or marital status.
  • Our courses are not intended to provide instruction that will result in the student's acquisition of occupational skills.

Blog Basics Level 1: One Day Intensive
Reviewed by Peggy B. on 5/20/2018
It was a lot of information and I appreciate learning the type of work that is required to create a successful blog; it is a lot of work! However, because I could not figure out my topic or name for my blog, I was a bit frustrated; however, the instructor was informative, patient and kind. I appreciate the booklet he gave out to the class, I will be carefully reviewing in the hopes that I will finally fine tune my blog and figure out name for it.

The instructor was great! I only give it 4 stars because I wish there was a short segment on technical set up for the blog.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 5/15/2017
Great class, the instructor was helpful and so was everyone else taking the class. To be honest, I wish we had more time. Nonetheless, not only did I get to focus my blog's topic, I also created a list of possible blog ideas. All the information I learned in this workshop was very helpful. Take it if you are serious about your blog.
