Start Your Own Food Blog
Conceptualize, develop, and run your own food blog! In this seminar, you'll discover how to find your "foodie niche" and develop a unique voice. You'll also learn how to promote and distinguish yourself in the overcrowded blogosphere---and how to transform a hobby into a viable writing career. All of blogging's ins and outs will be covered: hiring a website designer, finding a server, providing fresh content for readers, uploading photos, and much more. You will even have the opportunity to workshop your ideas as a group! Brooke Parkhurst, author of "Belle in the Big Apple" (Scribner) and the blog of the same name, writes the daily online column Full Plate for the "New York Daily News," which chronicles her Carrie Bradshaw-cum-June Cleaver exploits as a writer, cook, and new mother. She and her husband also released their first cookbook, "Just Married...and Cooking" (Scribner). The book is a cooking, lifestyle, and entertaining guide for the kitchen-challenged and newly hitched.
