Last night I presented a two-hour program at the New Westminster Public Library called Blogging Basics, to help people get started creating their own blogs. We had a great turnout, with 60 registered and only a few empty seats in the auditorium.  It was a very lively crowd, full of questions and comments – I barely made it through the presentation in those two hours!

Hopefully I was able to answer some questions and even inspire some folks to start blogging themselves! We also disussed using Twitter and Facebook to promote blogs. 

Here’s the presentation file, for anyone who’s interested:

Thanks again for coming out everyone! Please let me know when you launch your blogs!

  1. Hi Briana,

    Great presentation. Although I wasn’t able to attend. After reviewing your slides, you gave a very thorough explanation of blogs… I found slide 19 most helpful! Thanks again and keep up the great work.

  2. Hi Jose,

    Thanks for the feedback! I’d like to do it again sometime. I’ll post to the blog when I do.

    We are overdue for another Tweetup. You should come!
